Williamhill.com fear €1,000,000 Valverde Win!
Spanish bettors are on the edge of a €1,000,000 payday if countryman Alejandro Valverde wins la Vuelta in Madrid next week.
Online betting company, williamhill.com report that 90% of all bets have been for Valverde, and they face a payout of €1,000,000 if he wins this year’s Tour.
David Hood, spokesman for the Green Jersey sponsors said:
“Spanish gamblers have supported Valverde as if defeat is out of the question and he looks certain to repay their patriotic faith. This is the first year williamhill.com has sponsored La Vuelta and it has meant that many more people have had a bet than ever before. Unfortunately they have almost all bet on Alejandro and it could prove to be a very expensive event for us.”
