· Iceland firm from $151 into $41 to win Euro 2016 after beating England
· One punter placed $1,000 bet on Iceland to beat England at odds of $9.50
The two punters who backed Iceland to win the tournament at odds of $501 are all smiles after their shock win over England. One of those people had $2 while the other must’ve emptied their account on them by having a mere 4 cents!
A $160 bet on Iceland at odds of $101 is the biggest wager on the outsiders with a potential $16,000 collect awaiting if they can go all the way.
Iceland is an $8.50 outsider for its quarter-final clash with hosts France ($1.40), but there’s already twice as much money invested on Iceland compared to France.
“Leicester proved that footballing miracles do happen and the 500 plus punters who’ve backed Iceland to win Euro 2016 live to fight another day,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
