England’s victory over Argentina on Friday night wasn’t the only potential winner this summer – as the Lionesses have inspired a record-breaking amount of bets on the Women’s World Cup.
There have been a massive increase in stakes, according to Paddy Power, when compared to the last time it was held in 2015.
The number of bets are already up more than 50%, with Phil Neville’s Lionesses the best backed side as England fever sweeps the nation.
Spokesman Paddy Power said: “In a busy summer of football, the Women’s World Cup has come to the fore for our punters – who think football might be coming home, again.
“We’ve seen an unprecedented number of bets versus 2015, and expect interest to soar as the Lionesses progress through the tournament.”
