Whilst Bookmakers across the land were getting behind England, they are also breathing a huge sigh of relief after The Three Lions were dumped out of the World Cup.
Bookmakers had been sweating on an England win, having seen them go from 18/1 shots into second favourites at one point and as low as just 4/1.
Industry wide England winning would have been the biggest pay-out in history for one winner, and now the Bookmakers are very much in credit when it comes to Russia 2018.
“Industry wide, Bookmakers would have been looking at around £250million loss, and possibly even more had England won the final,” said OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton.
“The betting on the final itself would have broken records, and whilst that would have been welcome – the chances of an England win were looming large on the horizon.
“But it is not all good news for the Bookies as Harry Kane, who is set to finish top-scorer, will cost them a few quid that is for sure – but it is fair to say that England losing is a big win for the Bookmakers.”
