Bet on Gary Linekers Pants (Updated)

Gary Linekers Pants (Updated post Leicester winning Premier League)

Ever thought you’d see Gary Lineker in his pants? Maybe its best if you don’t answer that.

But we all know Lineker is a huge Leicester fan. And that Leicester have just caused what pundits are calling the biggest ever upset in the history of British sport, by winning the Premier League.

Back in December, when Leicester were surprisingly winning all their games and no-one gave them a cats chance in hell that they would still be there until the end of the season, Gary Lineker decided to make a promise on twitter

76,000+ Retweets and endless reminders later, Lineker has re-iterated his promised to the banterous fans. In fact, he’s told the Radio Times that he’s had the conversation with the BBC and they’ve given him the green light – thankfully after the watershed.

So has this got anything to do with betting? Of course it has. When faced with a frivolous challenge as big as this, Paddy Power just has to act on it. They’re offering odds of 4/5 that Gary will go through with it on the first Match of the Day of the 16/17 season. Gary himself has said that his BBC bosses have given him the green light (much to his consternation as he was praying they would forbid it).

So we had a recommendation to take Paddy Power up on their offer  of 4/5  (which stood as of 3rd May, post Leicester winning the Premier league). Money in the bank.

UPDATED: We hope you took the tip. Its now 1/50 for Linekar to go through with it as MOTD cheekily hint at it on Twitter:


So now we turn to Coral who have also got in the act and are offering a market  on the colour of Gary’s underpants assuming he wears them (if he does not any bets become null and void and stake returned). This can be found under the Football specials section. The favourite is Blue at 4/6 with oddball Multi-colour branded at 4/1 and white at 4/1. Polkadots can be had at 12/1 or gold at 16/1

Compare this to Paddy Power who offer the same ‘Colour’ market, but have blue at an almighty 1/40.

To offset the 1/40 on blue, Paddy Power offer some other more generous odds, all the way out to Pink and Green at 50/1.

So what are you waiting for? Go and bet on Gary Linekers pants. And we won’t tell a soul (hint – Coral have the best odds!!)

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
