Five Lucrative Leicester City Bets To Tickle Your Fancy For Next Season

Five Lucrative Leicester City Bets To Tickle Your Fancy For Next Season
By Conor O'Leary

How many times have you seen a story or a tweet about someone who put £20 on Leicester to win the Premier League back in August - only for them to be collecting a huge payout right now and wishing that was you?

Well it's not too late to get on the bandwagon. I mean, it's too late for this season - prices of 1/16 means you might get ten cent for a Leicester win - but is that worth it? Nah, it's time to continue the Leicester City bandwagon into next season and their march on Europe.

Here are five eye-catching prices for Leicester City to get behind for the rest of 2016 and beyond:

1. To Win The Premier League 2016/17 - 40/1

Can Leicester do the unthinkable and defend their Premier League title? In the Premier League era, only Manchester United (six times), and Chelsea (once) have ever successfully defended their title.

According to oddschecker, Leicester are only seventh favourites to claim the title - with Man City favourites at 7/4, and Chelsea right behind at 11/2. There's a bit of a gap between the top six and Leicester, and another gap between Leicester and West Ham as eighth favourite (160/1).

2. To Win The Champions League 2016/17 - 100/1

What a story it would be for Leicester to claim the Champions League in their first ever Champions League/European Cup campaign. Leicester have only ever had four ties in European competition before - with the last time being in the 2000/01.

There are related specials for Leicester in the Champions League, with a 16/1 chance of reaching the semi-finals, a 13/2 chance of making the quarter-finals, and a 9/4 chance of reaching the last 16.

3. To Be Relegated - 16/1

That's got to be the shortest price a Premier League champion has ever been to be relegated. Clearly if the bookies think that the Foxes are more likely to be relegated than defend their Premier League crown, that it's going to be a one-season wonder from Ranieri's men.

4. Riyad Mahrez To Win Ballon D'Or - 150/1

Can the PFA Player Of The Year go on to win the Ballon D'Or? It's only been done once in history, when Cristanio Ronaldo added the Ballon D'Or and FIFA World Player Of The Year to his PFA Player of the Year in 2008.

At 150/1, he's rated as more likely then Kevin de Bruyne and David de Gea

5. Jamie Vardy To Win Ballon D'Or - 250/1

Jamie Vardy being named Ballon D'Or winner just four years after playing Conference football would surely be a story matching the 5,000/1 shot that is Leicester City's march to the Premier League title. Will it happen? Probably not, but it would be such fun wouldn't it?
