Bookmakers in SPFL Title Admission as Bettors Send Warning Regarding Money Raising


Bettors who have placed bets on the 2019/20 SPFL season will wait for their winnings as the bookmakers delay payment.

The SPFL have announced that Dundee United, Raith Rovers and Cove Rangers have been crowned the championship, Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 winners after Dundee finally voted yes to the League’s plans to end the campaign immediately.

But with the prospect of appeals and possible legal challenges from several clubs furious at both the decision and Dundee’s late vote on the proposal, the bookies have told punters why they are suspending betting for the time being. throughout the season.

Bettors across the country have wagered hundreds of thousands of pounds on ante-post league winners, Premiership top six and bottom six, relegation and even top scorers from all four divisions.

However, with Scottish football possibly heading to the courts, bookies are waiting to see the next chapter before paying.

Scottish company spokesman Paul Petrie said: “These are unprecedented times in Scottish football and we need to make sure these titles are 100% official and not subject to lawsuits, which could still impact the bottom line.

“We are as frustrated as any bettor and want clarification on this as soon as possible.”
