Doncaster’s punters are some of the most patriotic in the UK.
That’s the verdict of betting giant William Hill.
Punters in Doncaster are some of the most patriotic ahead of England’s big game against Uruguay according to the bookmaker.
82% of all wagers in Doncaster are for an England victory - higher than the English average of 75%.
These stats were taken from William Hill’s World Cup minisite, Bet Nation, which visualises the feeling of the nation.
England are 23/20 favourites to win the match against Uruguay on Thursday with Uruguay 12/5 and the draw 9/4.
The Three Lions are even money second favourites to qualify from Group D behind Italy who are 1/10.
“After a strong showing against Italy and Uruguay’s capitulation against Costa Rica, England fans in Doncaster definitely fancy the Three Lions to kick start their campaign with a victory against Uruguay,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
