7/2 For Blackburn’s Under Fire Trio To Leave Club

After the humiliating apology issued to Steve Kean and Morten Gamst Pedersen by Blackburn global advisor, Shebby Singh, William Hill are offering 7/2 that all three have left their positions by the end of the Championship season.

“It is no secret that Steve Kean is walking a tightrope after relegation last season but Shebby Singh has really turned the heat up on the manager now,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “His ill-advised comments about fans’ favourite, Morten Gamst Pedersen, however, have put Singh’s own position under threat.”

Blackburn are 10/1 joint fifth favourites to win the Championship behind favourites Bolton at 6/1 and Leicester at 7/1.

English Championship winner: 6/1 Bolton; 7/1 Leicester; 9/1 Leeds; 9/1 Wolves; 10/1 Blackburn; 10/1 Cardiff; 11/1 BAR

English Championship promotion: 7/4 Leicester; 2/1 Bolton; 5/2 Wolves; 3/1 Leeds; 4/1 Blackburn; 4/1 Cardiff; 4/1 Nottingham Forest; 5/1 BAR

Daniel To Sturr Up Gb

As Team GB prepare for their quarter final on Saturday against South Korea William Hill think that recent performances should give cause to be hopeful for British football fans. Hill’s are 5/4 that GB win in 90 minutes and odds on at 8/15 to qualify.

Daniel Sturridge scored the only goal of the game as GB beat Uruguay in Cardiff on Wednesday and he looks likely to the lead the line again against South Korea. He is 9/2 to score first, with Craig Bellamy a 6/1 chance. Sunderland youngster Ji Dong Won is an 8/1 chance to score first against Pearce’s GB. Arsenal’s Ju Young Park is a 7/1 chance.

“South Korea have made it to the Quarter finals only scoring in one game but they can be dangerous. GB are growing in confidence and they beat a team of genuine quality against Uruguay. A semi final place should now be expected,” said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.

Match Result: 5/4 Team GB, 19/10 Draw, 23/10 South Korea

To Qualify: 8/15 Team GB, 11/8 South Korea

First Goal Scorer: 9/1 D Sturridge, 6/1 C Bellamy, 7/1 M Sordell, 7/1 Ju Young Park, 8/1 Koo Ja-Cheol, 8/1 Ji Dong Won, 8/1 S Sinclair, 9/1 Kim Hyun-Sung, 10/1 Kim Bo Kyung, 10/1 R Giggs, 10/1 A Ramsay, 12/1 BAR

Olympics Men’s Football Outright: 4/7 Brazil, 13.2 GB, 8/1 Mexico, 10/ Japan, 12/1 Senegal, 16/1 South Korea, 20/1 Egypt, 66/1 Honduras

Blackpool Hit By Hammer Blow…irons Odds On To Stay Up

West Ham won the ‘Richest Game In English Football’ and earned themselves a place at the top table once again and William Hill now make The Hammers 8/11 to survive in the Premier League next season (Evens to go down). There always has to be one unlucky side in the Playoffs and Blackpool were that side on Saturday. Their fans should take heart however, as they are 5/1 to go up next season and 16/1 to win the league.

“West Ham are back where they feel they belong and it looks like their stay will be more than one season,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Blackpool 2012/13 Season: 16/1 Win the Championship;

West Ham 2012/13 season: 8/11 stay up; 1/1 relegated; 2000/1 win the League

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.
