Premier League Is Back And Punters Cannot Wait!!!!!

Manchester City are the best backed side to win the Premier League with William Hill and the current Champions are 6/5 with Manchester United attracting only slight interest despite their large investment over the summer. The biggest bet that Hills have taken on the Premier League is for Liverpool, where a shop punter placed £22,000 e/w on the Reds lifting the trophy at 25/1.

“Despite the fact that we’ve had a busy sporting summer, turnover on our antepost football markets has increased quite markedly,” said Hill’ spokesman Joe Crilly. “We were offering top price on every single side to win the Premier League which proved incredibly popular and also shows that despite the glitz and glamour of the Euros and the Olympics, the Premier League remains the number one sporting event in the UK.”

After last season’s nail biting finale to the season, William Hill are offering 100/1 that the destination of the Premier League trophy is decided in added time of the final match of the season. Hills also have a number of other specials including 16/1 for any goalkeeper to score a goal this season, while 3/1 is available for all three promoted sides to stay up.

Nigel Adkins is the 7/2 favourite to lose the managerial sack race at 7/2, backed in pre-season from 20/1.

Carling Cup Specials…when Will Carroll Score?

Manchester City face Liverpool in the Carling Cup with a one goal deficit and William Hill make them 2/1 to qualify for the final, Liverpool are 2/5 and in the driving seat. The only goal at the Etihad was a penalty scored by Steven Gerrard and Hills offer 3/1 that a penalty is awarded during the match. Manchester City are 7/1 to win after extra time while Liverpool are 14/1. After winning their match against Spurs in added time on Sunday, Hills offer 16/1 that an injury time goal settles the tie.

“The previous match between these two was hardly a classic and both sides will want to avoid any early mistakes,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “It is quite possible that this one could go down to the wire.”

Andy Carroll and Edin Dzeko are struggling for goals at the moment and William Hill are offering 12/5 that either one of the misfiring strikers nets the first goal, while 6/1 is available for them both to find the net at anytime during the match. Andy Carroll has scored just the one goal since Luis Suarez started his ban and William Hill offer 11/8 that he fails to score in the remaining three matches of Suarez’s absence. He is 5/4 to score one, 7/2 two, 8/1 three and 10/1 four or more.

To Qualify: 2/1 Manchester City; 2/5 Liverpool

How Much Injury Time And Will Owen Score During It ?

**********************************************William Hill CARLING CUP WEDNESDAY NIGHT SPECIALS******************************************************

How much ‘injury’ time will be played at Old Trafford?:
OWEN 25/1 TO STRIKE IN ADDED TIME AGAIN
William Hill offer just 8/15 that the Manchester United – Wolves Carling Cup game will produce three or more goals in 90 minutes play, quoting that eventuality at 8/15, and offer 16/5 that there will be two, and 16/5 one or nil. With Michael Owen hitting the vital late winner in ‘injury time’ on Sunday, William Hill offer 25/1 that he will again be on target in added time after 90 minutes play – stakes refunded if he isn’t on the pitch at that time. Hills make Owen, who is expected to start the game, 4/5 to score if he does; 10/3 to get the first goal of the game; 11/2 to score twice or more; 20/1 to hit hat trick or more. ‘This game may well offer Michael Owen the opportunity of proving that he deserves to be starting matches for United if he can add to his impact on the derby match with a significant performance here’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
AND WITH the furore about the time added on in Sunday’s Manchester derby, Hills are betting on how much ‘added’ time will be PLAYED once the 90 minutes have finished, and offer 9/2 that it will be less than two minutes; 11/8 that it is three minutes and one second or more: ‘Once added time begins all eyes will be on the ref to see how much over the indicated minimum time he may play’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
How much ‘injury time’ following the opening 90 mins will be played in the Man Utd Wolves match according to the clock on Sky Sports’ coverage?
0-1.59 9/2
2.0-3.0 10/11
3.01 + 11/8
United are red hot 1/9 favourites to make it to the next round with Hills who have Wolves at 5/1. United are 1/3 to win in 90 minutes with the draw 4/1 and a Wolves’ win 8/1.
Hills make United 4/5 to score in each half with Wolves 11/1 to do likewise; United are 5/6 to win to nil, Wolves 9/1. United are 7/4 to win both halves, Wolves 40/1.
