Quarter Final Chaos: William Hill Specials

The last two quarter finals are to be played over the weekend as the top two from Groups C and D come head to head. Spain are 4/5 for a 90 minute victory over Group D runners up France whilst England and Italy cannot be separated at 9/5 each in 90 minutes and 10/11 each for qualification.

Spain have been dominant in possession in this tournament and face a France team who’s confidence may well be in tatters after the final group game defeat to Sweden. Spain are 11/4 to have 71% or more of the possession with William Hill. It is 6/4 they have between 61% and 70%, 5/4 that they have 51%-60% and 6/1 that they lose their touch and have under 50% of the ball.

Fernando Torres has filled the striker’s role in the last two matches for Spain but Cesc Fabregas started the first game in an advanced position and has two goals to his name. William Hill are betting on specials if he were to come from the bench. He is 2/1 to come off the bench and score, 9/2 to come off the bench and be booked and 33/1 he gets a red card after coming on.

France are a big price at 2/1 to qualify considering they were highly fancied at the beginning of the tournament. Mexes is banned so Koscielny comes in. The 90 minutes draw is 23/10 with the game 11/2 to go to penalties.

England play Italy in the final game of the last eight on Sunday and Wiliam Hill are finding it difficult to split them. With both camps talking about penalties it seems as though that could is the way Hill’s are heading too. It is 19/10 for the draw and 9/2 for the match to go to penalties.

Steven Gerrard and James Milner are 9/2 favourites to be the first England player’s to miss from the spot if they get to penalty shoot outs. John Terry is 6/1 after a famous miss in Moscow in 2008.

There has been a lot of coverage over Mario Balotelli leading up to this encounter and the stormy Italian has provoked some specials from William Hill.

If he is to start he is 4/6 to be substituted before anything else. He is 5/2 to be booked ahead of 3/1 to finish the match and 10/3 to score. The Manchester City striker is 25/1 to be sent off.

He is also 11/4 to score more goals than Wayne Rooney in the game, it is 8/13 they score the same amount and 5/2 that Rooney wins that battle of the Manchester based strikers.
