383 Bets Per Minute As England Fight Back To Defeat Sweden

Following England’s stunning victory over Sweden on Friday night William Hill are sweating. This is due to the fact that British bookmakers could be forking out over £10m should the Three Lions go on and win the trophy.

“Despite the turmoil that faced the England team just months before the tournament was to begin, patriotic punters have gone mad for England and they are by far the worst result for us at this moment in time,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “The two opening performances of the tournament have more than justified our punter’s support as well.”

During the game 34,504 bets were staked with Hills, equating to 383 bets per minute and 6 bets per second on the outcome of the game. England were still relatively well fancied when they were 2-1 down and punters were piling into them at 2/1.
