Will Grigg is on fire and one big Golden Boot bet has left the bookies terrified according to Ladbrokes.
The 24-year-old hitman struck 28 times last season for Wigan Athletic, and one confident punter has put £100 on Grigg winning the Golden Boot at Euro 2016 (500/1), which would net a cool £50,000.
It’s 6/4 for the former Walsall man to fire one in anytime during the tournament, with 50/1 for him to net a hat-trick in any of Northern Ireland’s games – and with punters piling on the bets, the bookies are getting twitchy.
Off the pitch, it’s 1/10 that the Norn Iron star sees his catchy chant pinched by fans of any other Euro 2016 side, while 4/6 says any ITV or BBC commentator mentions the instant Latics legend being ‘on fire’.
Ladbrokes News’ Dave Burin said: “Will Grigg is on fire and bookies everywhere are terrified. We’re praying he doesn’t take his shooting boots to France as if the cult hero is among the goals we’ll be paying out plenty.”
“Another man cheering on Grigg will be DJ Kenno whose now-legendary chant is odds on to be picked up by fans from Iceland to Italy.”
