Greatest upset in sports history?
I have seen this mentioned in regards to Leicester.

Seems like he if you were to just go by odds it would have to be wouldn't it?

Seen the Miracle on Ice mentioned and since it was not just a one off game, maybe.

Tyson/Douglass?

Others?

No, you'd expect much more, which I'm sure took place. If you're essentially trading prices on a long-term market it's not unusual to have at some point or other bet on every one of the runners.

"Second division West Ham lifting the cup in 1980 would have got you pretty long odds, not quite in Leicester's league but up there. "

>>> Saw something last night about some sap who bet 50p on Leicester at the start of the season and cashed out for 45p after one game.

Actually fairly usual behaviour for modern punters to be in and out of bets in and around the betting exchanges.

He hasn't thrown it away though.

Re: Greatest upset in sports history?
Fair play to the fella who bet 20 quid and is on course to win £100k.

Although, why would you ever throw away 20 quid on bloody LEICESTER

Sven, it was William Hill, they did a run down of the bets they'd had on Leicester City winning the title - if you google Leicester City, 5 pence Edinburgh, there's a bit about it.
