Finding Elvis Presley alive today, discovering proof of the Abominable Snowman, and Leicester City's chances of winning the Premier League at the beginning of the season. All had 5000-1 odds of coming to fruition... and you can probably guess which one just did.
By virtue of a 2-2 draw between Chelsea and Tottenham
Leicester City won their first Premier League championship, in what's being called the "most unlikely triumph in the history of team sport.
" With the help of FWA Footballer of the Year Jamie Vardy, Leicester rose from obscurity to win 22 of its 36 matches this season, which included just three loses (Arsenal x2, Liverpool). A miraculous accomplishment considering Leicester finished 14th (out of 20) the year before, and weren't even in the Premier League the year before that. Now they've won their first top-flight title in 132 years as a team, and are champions of England's top professional soccer league.
Quick, Marty! To the DeLorean
! If you would have put $100 bucks down on Leicester in early August you'd be sitting on a $500,000 winning ticket today. Son of a bitch! Not to worry, the Cleveland Browns have been given 200-1 odds to win Super Bowl 51
. Let's throw down some coin so we can cash in on the Browns' historic 2016 season! Eh, maybe not.
