You Bet Rvp Will Make It Rip For Efc

Robin van Persie looks set to make his Manchester United debut as his new team travel to Goodison and William offer 2/1 that he scores more than the whole Everton team put together. Everton are 11/8 to score more than RVP and they are 13/8 to tie. Van Persie is the 4/1 favourite to score the first goal and has been really well backed at Hills to do so, while former Blue, Wayne Rooney, is the 9/2 second favourite. Everton’s Nikica Jelavic is 7/1.

After his former club failed to find the net on Saturday, William Hill offer 8/11 that Arsenal manage to register a goal in the Premier League before van Persie does.

“There are many who think that van Persie has a lot to prove after only really having one full season at Arsenal and he will want to get off to a scoring start and our punters are really backing him to do so,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

The match at Goodison is notable every year for the fact that it sees Wayne Rooney return to his former club and Hills are offering a market on what the United talisman will do first. He is 15/8 to get a goal, 9/4 to be substituted and the same price to complete the game. He is 3/1 to receive a yellow card before anything else in the game and 40/1 to see a straight red.

Manchester United are odd on at 10/11 to get their season off to a winning start, with Everton 10/3 and the draw 23/10.

Despite their opening day defeat, William Hill still think that Liverpool will finish above their local rivals, Everton – offering 4/9 that they do so (13/8 they do not).

Liverpool/Everton season match bet: 13/8 Everton; 4/9 Liverpool

RVP vs Everton goals match bet (20/08/12): 2/1 RVP; 13/8 Tie; 11/8 Everton

What will Rooney do first: 15/8 score; 9/4 be substituted; 9/4 3/1 receive yellow card; 40/1 receive straight red card

Bellamy 5/2 To Celebrate With The ‘mobot’

Of all the things that Craig Bellamy may be remembered for in his career, William Hill will always remember him for the night he celebrated a goal against Barcelona by swinging an imaginary golf club. William Hill had been offering 100/1 and ended up paying out upwards of £50,000 on the day. Hills have decided that they will once again take on the Wales wizard offering 5/2 that Bellamy celebrates scoring for Wales on Wednesday night by doing the ‘Mobot’ or the ‘Lightning Bolt’.

“We offered 100/1 that he would do the golf swing celebration back in 2007 and we are now ready to take him on again albeit at a slightly more reserved price of 5/2,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Bellamy has just been at the Olympics and he may have picked up a few celebration tips from his fellow athletes.”

Glasgow University Set For A Tough Examination In The William Hill Scottish Cup

School may be out for the summer, but some of the students at Glasgow University are gearing up for the biggest football examination of their lives.

Glasgow University FC will face Selkirk in the first round of the 2012/13 William Hill Scottish Cup on Saturday, and the big prize for whoever graduates into the second round is a potential meeting against Rangers.

Midfielder Marc Hunter, stepping up a grade from GU’s U21 side, is already dreaming of a potential clash against the ‘Old Firm’ giants’ in the second round.

“This is the biggest game I’ve had in my career and made all the bigger with the chance that we can get Rangers in the next round! The thought of playing at Ibrox, getting some money for the club, and playing against international players would be amazing!. It’s a great incentive to get through Saturday’s tie and then hopefully look forward to the draw.”

“I have a pretty good record in the Scottish Cup, albeit in School but we won it when I was in first year so hopefully that success can continue with a win on Saturday. I’d love to grab a goal to take us through and see my name up on Sky Sports Soccer Saturday!”

The potential game against Rangers is a huge carrot for GU, but the students coach Gary Rodgers is keen to keep the players focused on Saturday’s game.

“The players may all be thinking about potentially playing Rangers in the next round but it is the old cliché of taking one game at a time and it is up to us (coaches) to keep the players focused on Saturday as it is going to be a tough match so early in the season. Normally we would have an extra 3 or 4 weeks to prepare for the Scottish Cup ties but we have managed to get a few friendlies in and have played 3 league games so the guys are looking sharp and they all want to play a part on Saturday.”

“It would be amazing for the players, the University and the coaches if we were able to get through and then get drawn against Rangers but that is a long way off yet, we just need to make sure we play to our best on Saturday and get through what is a tricky tie and I have no doubt Selkirk will be thinking along the same lines that they can potentially face Rangers in the next round so it is going to be tough but we’ll be ready.”

The 2010-11 season saw Glasgow University F.C. qualify for the Scottish Cup Second Round for the first time since 1975 after a 1-0 victory at Garscube Sports Complex against Burntisland.

The Cup sponsors, William Hill make the students 3/1 outsiders to win the game, Selkirk are 4/7 – with the draw available at 16/5.

Mystery Punter Leaves £31k Unclaimed

A mystery William Hill customer has so far left a whopping jackpot win of over £31,000 unclaimed. The spectacular win is the result of a 50 pence stake on a football bet that consisted of nine selections resulting in a draw.

The bet was placed in Arbroath on Friday 10th August on the next day’s matches. The punter backed an array of draws including the Hull v Rotherham clash in the Capital One Cup which went to extra time and other games with teams leagues apart. Aldershot helped bump his winnings up by gaining an unlikely draw at Molineux against Wolves at odds of 3/1.

“The close to 64,000/1 shot is a fantastic win and an amazing start to the season for someone but to leave it unclaimed since Saturday is rather unusual. We are not sure if this customer has gone on holiday or if he just doesn’t realise how lucky he has been but we will be more than happy to pay out when the penny drops,” said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.

Selection Match Price Result
Draw Hull Vs Rotherham 5/2 1-1
Draw Rochdale Vs Barnsley 11/5 2-2
Draw Wolves Vs Aldershot 3/1 1-1
Draw Cheltenham Vs Mk Dons 11/5 1-1
Draw Forest Green Vs Cambridge 11/5 1-1

Future Bright For Hodgson And When Will He Lose?

England defeated Italy although neither side were at their strongest a fact highlighted by the 11/8 offered by William Hill that only four or five of Wednesday’s starting XI line up for England’s first WC qualifying game. Roy Hodgson’s unbeaten record remains intact and William Hill offer 5/4 that he does not taste defeat until after 2012 has finished.

“The match against Italy showed us that the future is bright for England but the odds would suggest a return to a more traditional starting XI once qualifiers start,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Jack Butland became England’s youngest ever goalkeeper and he is 2/1 to play Premier League football this season for any side (4/11 he does not).

Jack Butland to play in a Premier League match this season: 4/11 no; 2/1 yes

How many of tonight’s starting XI will start England’s first qualifier: 8/1 0-3; 11/8 4-5; 13/8 6-7; 7/2 8-9; 14/1 10-11

England next defeat: 9/1 Moldova (a); 9/2 Ukraine (h); 150/1 San Marino (h); 5/2 Poland (a); 11/4 Sweden (a); 5/4 unbeaten at the end of 2012

Arsenal Will Gir-roud The Day They Sold Rvp

Robin van Persie looks set to sign for Manchester United and William Hill make him 8/11 to score more Premier League goals than Wayne Rooney and he is 5/6 to score 22 or more goals. Van Persie won last season’s PFA player of the year award and he is 7/2 to pick up the award again this season. The loss of van Persie could have an adverse effect on Arsenal and they are odds on, at 8/15 to finish lower than the third place they finished last season while Manchester United are 5/6 to score more than the 89 goals that they scored last term.

Van Persie is 8/1 to score four or more Premier League goals against his former club this season while he is 11/10 to outscore both Giroud and Podolski put together.

“It looks as though van Persie will hit the ground running for Manchester United and he could possibly reach a similar goals tally to what he approached last season while at the other end of the spectrum, without his goals, Arsenal’s grip on third spot may slip,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

There are a couple of names who could be elbowed out of Old Trafford following RVP’s arrival and Javier Hernandez is 7/2 to move to Arsenal from Manchester United and 9/2 to move to Spurs. Real Madrid have often been linked with the striker and he is 10/1 to move to the Bernabeu from Old Trafford. Dimitar Berbatov could also be on his way and Hills make QPR the 4/1 favourites to secure his signature upon him leaving Old Trafford.

Robin van Persie vs Rooney goals match bet: 8/11 van Persie; 1/1 Rooney
