Two Leicester fans cashed out of their Leicester title bets just before today’s match

Worth holding out a bit longer...

Even though it looks like more of a matter of when, rather than if Leicester will be crowned champions, two punters cashed out on their bets ahead of the Foxes’ trip to Old Trafford on Sunday.

Leicester captain Wes Morgan earned his side a 1-1 draw after they fell behind to an early Anthony Martial goal. But the tension was too much for two punters who cashed out on their £1 bets before kick off.

According to The Mirror, Ladbrokes paid out £4,381 on both bets – £619 shy of the £5,000 they would have won if Ranieri’s men claim the unlikely title.

While we’d  hardly stick our noses up at over four grand, you have to wonder why they couldn’t just hold out for a little bit longer.
