BOOKMAKERS LADBROKES have brought back 5000/1 Premier League bets for the very first time because Leicester City defied those chances to win the title last season.

However with no side offered at any longer than 1000/1 (Burnley, Hull & West Brom) to raise the prize, fans hoping for a bumper pay day will have to count on both Manchester clubs getting relegated for a 5000/1 windfall.

The same odds are offered for any side to win every game, while it's 5000/1 Leicester win an unprecedented prize quad, or Burnley win the title with Middlesbrough in 2nd.

Everton fans intending to win a life changing amount of cash will do so if they successfully back their side to remain unbeaten before lifting the title.

The ‘Leicester impact' indicates interest in outsiders winning the title is already up 300% compared with last season. Middlesbrough are the most popular long shot up until now, with support for them meaning their title probabilities are already in to 750/1, from 1000/1.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes stated: “The ship has sailed when it pertains to fans backing their side at 5000/1, however we'll pay out at the very same long shots if there's another incredible story to emerge in the Premier League this season.”

He added:

“Looking at this season's 5000/1 bets, it acts as a tip of the task Leicester managed. If anyone is to follow in the Foxes' footsteps, fans think Boro have the very best possibility.”
