William Hill Offer Season Long Betting For Fans Of Every Team

While most fans of Premier League teams may not realistically be able to back their side to win the league or even avoid relegation, William Hill are ensuring that they will have the option to back their side to improve upon last season’s performances. Not only can they back their side to finish higher than last season, they can also back the side to finish lower, or in the same position.

“As a fan of Fulham for example, you are not realistically going to be able to back your side to win the league while at the same time the price that you will get for your side to stay up is incredibly short,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “We are enabling every fan to have a positive (as well as a negative and a neutral) bet on their side depending on how they think the season will pan out.”

How will your side fare in 2012/13?

Opening Day Thumpings Could See Early Managerial Changes

Mark Hughes, Chris Hughton and Brendan Rodgers all suffered heavy opening day defeats and William Hill offer 9/1 that two or three of them have gone before Christmas, 7/4 one of them has and 8/15 that none of them have . Another side struggling to adjust to the new season was Arsenal as they started life without Robin van Persie and William Hill make the Gunners 8/11 to score before their former striker does (Evens they do not).

“There were certainly a few sides who looked as though they were still on their holidays and their managers will have to turn things around quickly otherwise they could find themselves out of a job before the year is out,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

How many of Hughes, Hughton and Rodgers gone by Christmas: 8/15 none; 7/4 one; 9/1 two or three

Who will score first: 8/11 Arsenal; Evens Robin van Persie

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

Brave(?) Punter Backs Liverpool To The Tune Of £44,000

William Hill took their biggest pre-season bet so far as one gutsy punter in Liverpool put down £44,000 on his side to win the league (£22,000 e/w). The man, in his mid thirties and a Liverpool fan, backed his side at 25/1 and William Hill have now cut their odds to 16/1 for them to win the title. Should Liverpool win the League he will scoop £777,333.33 and should they finish second, he will pick up £205,333.33.

“The football has gone largely unnoticed while the Olympics has been going on although there has been a steady stream of bets on Liverpool winning the title, mainly from the North West,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “There has not been that much movement in or out of Anfield this summer but despite this, Liverpool now constitute around 40% of all stakes that we have taken on the Premier League winner market.”

English Premier League winner: 6/5 Manchester City; 5/2 Manchester City; 5/1 Chelsea; 12/1 Arsenal; 16/1 Liverpool; 25/1 Tottenham; 150/1 BAR
