In the English Premiere League this season, there has been an incredible story developing. Leicester City is currently sitting 5 points ahead in first place this late into the season. To give you an idea how crazy this is, they went into the season as 2500/1 odds to win the Premiere League. Yes, that means if you wagered just one dollar you would win back 2500 dollars! The season got off to a magical start for them as the league’s current leading goal scorer, Jamie Vardy, broke the Premiere League record when he scored a goal in 13 straight league games.
Everyone has been waiting and waiting for them to drop in the standings, but they just refuse to do so! Anyone who went into today thinking they were still only pretenders should definitely have a new mind set now. They went into Manchester City this morning as 5/1 underdogs and shocked everyone by beating them 3-1. They came into this game 3 points ahead of Manchester City in the standings. After today’s big win, they now lead Manchester City by 6 points and Tottenham by 5.
To go into Manchester City’s stadium and beat not only one of the best teams in the Premiere League, but one of the best teams in the world shows they have what it takes to pull off this miracle season. With 13 Premiere League games remaining I highly recommend paying attention to the standings and see if Leicester City can pull it off.
