Paddy Power pays out on Manchester City Title bets

9 Dec 2017

paddy power man cityPaddy Power has once again surprised the entire gaming industry with another bold decision following a Hillary Clinton's blunder last year and a controversial Floyd Mayweather payout this summer. Punters who had backed Manchester City to win the 2017/2018 English Premier League title, have received full winning payouts by the Irish bookie. The total amount stands at £500.000 as Paddy estimates that The Citizens 8 point lead will be enough to secure this season's title. This decision has received various comments from tipsters and punters alike, as City is set for a tight clash against arch-rivals Manchester United, on Sunday.

Manchester City's odds stood at 15/9 before the start of the season and have dropped to 1/9. If City manages to avoid defeat these odds are expected to be shortened even further. Paddy Power brand ambassador and former Manchester United player Paul Ince said: “It’s both brave and stupid of Paddy Power to pay out – we’re not even half-way through the season yet. It’s crazy to rule out Manchester United, and even Chelsea. It’s great for those who backed City, of course, but it could all change – and Paddy Power could end up with a lot of very expensive egg on their face.”

A Paddy Power spokesmean went on to add: “We hold our hands up, we’ve fully bought into the hype and can’t see who will come close to Pep’s lads this season. If you ignore the sky blue shirts, empty seats and Manc accents, being at the Etihad feels like watching a Guardiola Barcelona side. So we’re rewarding the shrewd punters that knew they’d walk it this year. Then again, if some of our previous pay-outs are anything to go by, Mourinho can rest easy yet. We paid out over $1m on Hilary Clinton to be president and look where that left us.”

BOOK SPY BONUS REVIEW

Paddy is the best example of “united we stand” in betting business, as they started as a merger of all Irish bookies, who expanded in many countries and eventually merged with Betfair. Nowadays Paddy’s popularity is exceeding the British Isles, their main area of interest. They’re one of the first bookmakers who took advantage of odds as a commercial campaign, offering odds on bizarre events to attract publicity. Their services could be complete if they added an Asian Handicap option to their great number of alternative betting selections. They still offer their website only in English, by choice.
