Larry the Lobster predicts World Cup win for England!

| 13.06.2014

Forget Paul The Octopus, there’s a new kid on the block with Ladbrokes and Sportlobster unveiling their very own animal psychic.

To celebrate the company’s partnership with Sportlobster.com, World Cup expert Larry The Lobster has been exclusively revealing his predictions ahead of England’s group games against Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica.

Filmed at Hodges Fishmongers in Rayners Lane, north-west London, Larry quickly got to work and had no reservations in backing Roy Hodgson’s Three Lions.

England are 2/1 to win their Group D opener against Italy, with the Azzurri the 17/10 favourites and a draw priced at 2/1 with Ladbrokes.

Of course, you’ve already been busy having your say in our Ladbrokes News poll.

And you’re opposing Larry with 40% of our readers voting for an Italy victory with 20% in favour of England and 20% plumping for the spoils to be shared (at the time of writing).
