The incredible run of Leicester City has been the story of the season in the English Premier League. There are still three months left in the season, but Leicester City -- once a threat to be relegated -- is in first place and considered a betting favorite. If the club wins the championship, the celebration will be all the more rewarding for a fan named Chloe Cope.
Cope stands to collect $50,000.
Before the season, the odds of Leicester City winning the EPL this season were 5,000-to-1. Cope took the action for £7, which is roughly $10.

By comparison, the longest pre-season odds this past NFL season for a team winning the Super Bowl was Jacksonville at 300-to-1. And the Philadelphia 76ers, the worst team in the NBA, opened this season at 300-to-1 as well.
