167 football fans betted that Suárez would bite opponent

A total of 167 gamblers have cashed in following Uruguay national football squad and Liverpool F.C. (England) striker Luis Suárez’s apparent shoulder bite on Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini during Uruguay’s 1-0 FIFA World Cup win in Brazil, the BBC reported.

Norwegian online bookmaker Betsson offered 175/1 on Suárez biting an opponent and paid out £44,000 between 167 punters, the biggest individual win being £2,000.

FIFA has launched a disciplinary case on the incident, and if found guilty, the English Premier League’s top player can be banned for two years.

The 27-year-old Uruguay international has been banned before for biting opponents.
