Manchester City are also 2/5 to finish higher than Chelsea in the league this season (7/4 not to).

“City were favourites for the Community Shield and they duly delivered and at the same time, sent out a warning to their rivals that they are the team to beat,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “They are our favourites to win the League as well and our punters certainly seem to agree with us with most of the pre-season money on City to do the business.”

Biggest Football Day Of The Year So Far…10 Bets A Second To Be Placed

William Hill are expecting the England/Italy match to turnover in the region of £18m for British bookmakers, taking more than any of England’s group games, more than the Champions League Final and more than the title deciding Manchester derby at the end of last season. The turnover figures are boosted by the fact that the match is so close, with William Hill unable to separate the two sides. England are 9/5 to win in 90 minutes with the Italians the same price and the draw 19/10. Both sides are 10/11 to qualify.

“This match is going to be keenly contested and very tight and we expect that this will drive turnover higher than it has been at any point throughout the course of the tournament,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Despite the fact that we are expecting a huge day on Sunday, that will be dwarfed should England win and face Germany in the semis.”

During the final group game of England’s campaign against Ukraine, William Hill took 6 bets per second and that number is set to increase to around 10 with up to £1.5m set to be staked in play.

All eyes will undoubtedly be on the mercurial talents of both Wayne Rooney and Mario Balotelli and William Hill are offering 12/1 that Balotelli sees red and 14/1 that Rooney does. It is 6/1 for either player to be sent off. Hills make Mad Mario 8/11 to be booked before Rooney (who is 4/1 to be booked before his Manchester City counterpart). Rooney is 9/2 to score the first goal, with Balotelli 11/2 to do so.

England have scored three headed goals in the tournament and William Hill make England 4/1 to score a headed goal against Italy. They have also taken advantage of their opportunities when they have (not so frequently) arisen and Italy are unsurprisingly 8/13 to have more shots on target.

England’s performances have been typified by their resilient performances while not having much of the ball and they are 4/1 to have less than 40% of the possession in their match vs Italy.

90 minutes: 9/5 England; 9/5 Italy; 19/10 draw

To qualify: 10/11 England; 10/11 Italy

Man of the match: 5/1 Steven Gerrard; 5/1 Andrea Pirlo; 6/1 Wayne Rooney; 7/1 Mario Balotelli; 7/1 Antonio Cassano; 8/1 Andy Carroll; 8/1 Danny Welbeck; 8/1 Antonio Di Natale; 10/1 BAR

England possession: 4/1 less than 40%; 4/6 40-50%; 7/4 51% or more
*settled by UEFA.com post match

Most shots on target: 8/13 Italy; 6/5 England
*settled by UEFA.com post match

4/1 England to score a headed goal

To be booked first: 4/1 Rooney; 8/11 Ballotelli; 5/4 neither booked

Kenny Backed To Stay After Liverpool Bounce Back

Liverpool strolled to victory against Chelsea just days after defeat in the FA Cup Final and will somewhat appease the Liverpool fans after what has been a disappointing season. Kenny Dalglish may have bought himself some time and William Hill now make him 4/7 (from 5/6) that he is in charge of Liverpool come the first game of next season.

“Liverpool’s fans will rightly be disappointed with their side’s season, but a comprehensive victory against the Champions League finalists has bookended a torrid season and set fans thinking that Kenny may well be the man to lead them to glory in 2012/13,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Andy Carroll continued his recent fine form, with just a goal missing from his performance against Chelsea and Hills offer 5/6 that he is on the England plane for the Euros (5/6 he is not).

Chelsea’s capitulation means that they are out of the running for the top four and Hills are now betting on who will finish third and fouth in the league, with Arsenal 4/9 to finish in third and Tottenham 1/2 to finish in fourth.

Who will finish third: 4/9 Arsenal; 7/4 Tottenham; 33/1 Newcastle

Who will finish fourth: 1/2 Tottenham; 2/1 Arsenal; 7/1 Newcastle

Kenny Dalglish to still be in his current position on first day of 2012/13 Premiership season: 4/7 yes, 5/4 no

Andy Carroll to be in the final Euro 2012 England squad: 5/6 yes, 5/6 no

Fa Cup Woe For Liverpool Could Spell The End For Kenny

Fernando Torres failed to play a single minute in the FA Cup Final but William Hill make him 5/4 to start the Champions League Final (4/7 not to). He is 11/4 to score at anytime in the game, although Hills are also offering 3/1 that he plays any part of the match and scores (no void bet if he does not score). Torres is 9/4 to have left Chelsea by the start of next season (1/3 he is still there).

Despite two Cup finals thisseason, Liverpool have underperformed in the League and Kenny Dalglish is just 5/6 to have left Liverpool by the start of next season.

“The FA Cup was a real marker in the immediate futures of both Dalglish and Di Matteo,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “While Di Matteo looks set for the Chelsea job now, Dalglish, it seems could be gone in the summer.”

Torres in Champions League:

5/4 to start
3/1 to play a part at any point (in 90 minutes) and scores

Torres to be at Chelsea on first day of next season: 9/4 yes; 1/3 no

Dalglish to be at Liverpool on the first day of next season: 5/6 yes; 5/6 no

Chelsea fantastically drew with Barcelona with ten men and William Hill make the Blues 7/4 to lift the trophy.

Chelsea are 7/2 to win both the Champions League and the FA Cup.

“A fantastic turnaround from Chelsea and Di Matteo has been backed in from 7/4 to 10/11 in the space of 15 minutes since Torres scored the equaliser,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Harry Redknapp is one of those managers and he is 1/4 favourite to become the next England manager, with Roy Hodgson 4/1, Stuart Pearce 6/1 and Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola both 12/1. Hills are now offering odds on when the next permanent England boss has his first official press conference and go 8/15 that it is after the end of this season but before the start of the European Championships.
