Bent Could Be Straight On The Plane To Poland

Darren Bent has provided Roy Hodgson with a boost, with the news that he could be back and playing in time for the European Championships and William Hill have cut the odds of him being called up to the squad from 4/1 to 7/2. He is 1/6 to be left at home.

“Darren Bent’s absence has been obvious as Villa have slumped down the table without his goals,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “England could find themselves in a similar situation without Wayne Rooney and Bent’s quality could be much needed.”

West Ham just missed out on automatic promotion to the Premier League and they are 13/8 favourites to win the Championship playoffs at Hills who go 5/2 Birmingham; 10/3 Blackpool and 10/3 Cardiff. It could be argued that West Ham should have been promoted easily and Hills offer 14/1 that West Ham go up and Sam Allardyce leaves the club before the start of the season.
