You Bet Cup Final Can Outdo Manc Derby


William Hill are predicting that the FA Cup Final will produce a bigger betting turnover than the crucial Manchester City v Manchester United Premier League title showdown game earlier this week. ‘Some £20m was gambled on the Manchester derby, but with a north versus south clash in the Cup Final and with both managers battling to secure their futures at the clubs we are anticipating a betting bonanza exceeding that total’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Chelsea are favourites to lift the trophy, at 4/6 with William Hill who offer Liverpool at 5/4; while Chelsea are 15/4 to win both the Cup and the Champions League (9/4 to win neither). Defeat at Wembley could spell the end of Kenny Dalglish’s current reign at Liverpool and he is 8/11 with Hills not to be in charge at the start of next season, and Even money still to be in place. ‘Liverpool’s unimpressive League position could well outweigh the achievement of winning the Carling Cup, but Kenny would have a much stronger case to continue in the job if he adds the FA Cup’ said Sharpe.
Roberto Di Matteo has won admirers with the way he has steadied the Chelsea ship since he took over on a temporary basis, and Hills now make him 8/11 still to hold the role at the start of next season, although other contenders include 11/2 joint second favourites Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola, while Fabio Capello has suggested he would like to manage in the Premier League and has been made 9/1 joint fourth favourite for the Chelsea job – and 5/2 to be managing any Prem side by the start of next season.

Arsenal Put Up Fight But Fall Short…chelsea Ease Into Last Eight Of Fa Cup

Arsenal fought bravely but fell just short as they aimed to conquer the mountain that was a four goal deficit against AC Milan. Before the game, William Hill punters piled into Arsenal – to win the match (23/20), to qualify (20/1) and to win 5-0 (125/1), all amounting to liabilities of well over £1 million.

“As Van Persie’s penalty hit the back of the net, I have to say we were torn,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “It would have been fantastic to have witnessed such an epic comeback, but at the same time, we would have been on the receiving end of a seven figure walloping.”

Hills think that Arsene Wenger’s side showed such guts to get back to 4-3 and Hills think that they could well ride the crest of such a good performance, offering 8/15 that they finish in the top four of the Premier League, to continue their rich tradition in the Champions League. Alex Oxlade Chamberlain ran himself to a standstill during the game and William Hill are offering 5/4 that he makes it into the England squad for the European Championships.

Progression in the Champions League would have been the only thing to keep alive Arsenal’s hopes of ending their six year drought without a trophy, but Hills think that they could make up for that, offering 2/1 that they win at least one piece of silverware next season.

For the first time, Robin van Persie has moved to odds on (8/11) that he is no longer at Arsenal on the first day of next season (he is even money to still be there).

Wenger 1st day of next season: 2/5 yes 7/4 no
Van Persie 1st day of next season: EVES yes 8/11 No
Arsenal to win a trophy in 2012/13: 2/1
(Only Prem, FA Cup, Carling Cup, Champions League/Europa League count)
Alex Oxlade Chamberlain to make the England Euro 2012 squad: 4/7 no; 5/4 yes


Chelsea eased through to the quarter finals of the FA Cup despite a tricky first half under Roberto Di Matteo and William Hill make them 11/4 to win the cup behind 5/2 joint favourites Liverpool and Tottenham. Fernando Torres endured yet another tricky match and Hills make him 11/8 to have left the club before the start of next season.

FA Cup Outright:
Liverpool 5/2
Tottenham 5/2
Chelsea 11/4

Sunderland 9/1

You Bet Scotland Could Continue Fine Form Vs Slovenia

Scotland face Slovenia for the third time and are yet to taste defeat against them but despite this, Craig Levein’s men are 11/5 outsiders to defeat the Even money hosts. Scotland have kept two clean sheets in their previous meetings with Slovenia and they are 5/1 to win to nil on Wednesday.

“Scotland have only lost one match in their last six and that was against Spain and we think that Wednesday’s game could be very close indeed,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Slovenia vs Scotland: 1/1 Slovenia; 11/5 Scotland; 11/5 Draw

Scotland have yet to concede a goal against Slovenia.
Scotland to win to nil: 5/1

Kenny Miller joins up with the Scotland squad after tasting defeat in the Carling Cup Final. Charlie Adam was a winner in the same game but both players missed penalties in the shootout. Cardiff’s Don Cowie scored in the shootout.

Giggs 20/1 To Reach Four Figures…liverpool 4/9 For Barren 2012/13…torres Troubles

Ryan Giggs celebrated his 900th Manchester United appearance by scoring a goal and William Hill offer 20/1 that he reaches 1000 appearances. “Ryan will have to play for at least another three years in order to reach the 1000 games mark although the way that he has been playing recently suggests that the evergreen Giggs could easily do that,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Liverpool 4/9 For Barren 2012/13

Liverpool lifted the first silverware of the season on Sunday, when they won the Carling Cup and William Hill are offering 2/1 that they win one trophy next season and 8/1 they win two or more. They are 4/9 to win no silverware in the 2012/13 season. “There have been many people talking about Arsenal’s barren seasons but Liverpool, until Sunday, had suffered a similar streak and winning the League Cup is unlikely to paper over the cracks and they will really have their work cut out in order to follow it up next season,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Liverpool are the 5/2 joint favourites to win the FA Cup with Spurs and are 10/3 to finish in the top four in the Premier League, undoubtedly a top target for Kenny Dalglish. Liverpool are 7/1 to win the League Cup next season.

Torres Troubles

Fernando Torres has been suffering in the goals department since joining Chelsea and he has finally been dropped from the Spain squad. Hills are offering 6/4 that he fails to go to Euro 2012 (1/2 to make it). Torres is 13/8 to have left Chelsea by the start of next season (4/9 to still be there).

Torres to make the Spain Euro 2012 squad
Yes – 1/2
No – 6/4

Torres to score at Euro 2012
Bets are losers if doesn’t make squad or doesn’t get playing minutes.

Torres to leave Chelsea by first game of 2012/13 season:
Yes – 13/8
No – 4/9

Liverpool Season 2012/13 Trophies
0 4/9
Exactly 1 2/1
2 or more 8/1

Welsh Triple Crown: 22/1 For The Ultimate Welsh Weekend Wager

Nathan Cleverly is one of the UK’s only World Champions in any weight division and William Hill make him 1/25 to defeat US fighter, Tommy Karpency in the defence of his title. The challenger is 9/1 to win while the draw is 40/1. Cleverly is proving popular to win on points at 7/4 and is 4/9 to win by KO.

William Hill Fa Cup Specials…

With Liverpool in the final of the Carling Cup, Manchester City at the top of the Premier League, Chelsea and Arsenal still in the Champions League and Spurs fighting on more than front, William Hill are offering 2/5 that no one Premier League side wins any more than one of the big five trophies (7/4 that any Premier League side wins more than one trophy).
