Manchester City’s odds on doing the Quadruple continue to drop.
After completing the first-leg of what would an unprecedented four trophy haul, Bookmakers certainly believe there is a real chance it could happen.
300/1 at the start of the season and as long as 20/1 only last month – their form has seen a sudden change in the betting.
Pep Guardiola’s men needed a penalty shootout to overcome Chelsea at Wembley but Raheem Sterling’s winning spot kick secured a successful defence of the League Cup and delivered the first leg of a potential clean sweep of trophies.
BoyleSports we’re offering 20/1 last week that City would go on and win the lot this season but no sooner had the winning penalty been scored than punters were piling in on the quadruple, seeing the odds nosedive to just 7/1 in the hours after the game.
The Citizens also saw their Premier League odds tighten into 8/15 from 8/11 after Liverpool left Old Trafford with just a point on Sunday despite the hosts being forced into three first half substitutions.
City went from 7/2 into 11/4 to win the Champions League after scoring 3 away goals in Schalke, while their odds of 4/5 to lift the FA Cup makes them markets leaders in all three remaining competitions.
Lawrence Lyons, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented: “We’ve had bets on a City quadruple from prices as big as 100/1, so at 7/1 now there are a few punters on a major sweat. The potential liability has snowballed since the game on Sunday so we’re bracing ourselves for a damaging May if City sweep up as many people now believe they will.”
