The Premier League title is one win away for Chelsea after their victory over Leicester at the King Power Stadium.
However, the 3-1 success also brought glory one-step closer for backers of a brace of this season’s plethora of topical special bets from bwin.com.
Before Ramires completed the comeback, Blues captain John Terry provided the breakthrough goal in the 79th minute, equalling David Unsworth’s Premier League scoring record for a defender in the process.
The boys in black and gold had priced up when Terry would usurp the penalty-dispatching Everton stalwart’s mark back in December 2014, with bettors advised to snaffle the 5/1 about him doing so in May.
News.bwin.com regulars will have noted that Sunderland, who visit Stamford Bridge for what could prove a valedictory home romp on the season’s final day, are the 33-year-old’s second most scored-against opponents.
Those who invested in Terry burnishing an already pleasurable May with a personal record were not the only ones to see their bwin special bets begin to look more and more like a good thing.
Leicester cheated defeat by more than a two-goal margin for the 34th game of the Premier League season in succession.
The Foxes’ admirable ability to avoid a serious thrashing, even during a streak of ten losses in 11 games earlier in the campaign, had not gone unrecognised at bwin.
In March bwinners were advised that the 2/1 about the Foxes completing 2014/15 in the top flight without losing by as many as three goals was a price worth taking.
Four games remain for both wagers to be consummated, with Terry now 3/1 to find the net in one Chelsea’s four remaining games.
Leicester are just 3/100 not to be beaten by more than two strikes in remaining clashes with Newcastle, Southampton, Sunderland and QPR.
