Could we have another Leicester City on our hands?

One brave Australian football fan believes Wolverhampton can win the Premier League this season and has put his money where his mouth is. 

According to Sportsbet, the bold punter has placed $1000 on Wolves to win the English top-flight at odds of $176

After earning promotion to the Premier League last season, Nuno Espirito's side did defy expectations as they finished seventh in their first campaign back in the first division. 

That finish means Wolves are now on the cusp of playing in the Europa League after winning the first leg of their third qualifying round match 4-0 against Pyunik. 

With one eye on Europe, the club has had a busy off-season in the transfer market spending over AU $100 million on signings and they even beat Manchester City on penalties in pre-season.

But whether they can even crack into the top six remains to be seen, let alone win the Premier League in a fairytale story that would rival Leicester City's.

Ahead of the Premier League's return, a few more smaller but still pretty obscure bets have also been placed Down Under. 

One Sportsbet customer has put $5 on Norwich to beat Liverpool 5-2 in the season opener - a result which if it happens would see the punter pocket $1005. 

Another believes Manchester United will win their match against Chelsea 3-1 with new signing Harry Magurie scoring the first goal - a multi valued at $376.
