City Steal Title March…8/15 To Win On Goal Difference

Manchester City took a vital win in the battle to land the Premier League and William Hill now make the blue half of Manchester 4/9 to be celebrating come the end of the season. Manchester United are 13/8. Despite the defeat, Hills make Ferguson 8/15 to outlast Mancini (11/8 not to). City now lead on goal difference and they are 8/15 to win the title in that way (United are 14/1 to do so).

“Manchester City have now stolen a march on their rivals with the finishing post firmly in sight, but a tricky fixture at Newcastle could well see their title ambitions tempered,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

A fantastic night of football was highlighted by the fact that Hills took well over a million pounds on the night and over 40,000 bets on the 90 minutes market alone. Over 20,000 bets were staked online in-running.

“Phew, our compilers deserve a rest after that,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “We were expecting a busy one but that far exceeded anyone’s expectations.”

Premier League outright: 4/9 City; 13/8 Utd

Win the title on goal difference: 8/15 City; 14/1 United

Who will leave first: 8/15 Mancini; 11/8 Ferguson

Chelsea Latest…champions League Outright To Follow

Roberto Di Matteo has been cut from 8/1 to 5/1 third favourite to become the next Chelsea boss after his side’s valiant comeback against Napoli. Fernando Torres failed to find the net again (in the 90 minutes of the game) but William Hill make him 8/13 to finally break his 2012 duck, although he is 6/5 to fail to score during the next four games.

“Torres missed an open goal during extra time and his confidence will have plummeted even further,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Saying that, Leicester this weekend offer the perfect opportunity for him to get back on track.”

Chelsea are now three in three under Di Matteo and Hills offer 2/1 that they are undefeated in their next four games, although they are 5/6 for their first defeat to come at the hands of Manchester City.

When will Torres next score: 8/13 Leicester; 7/1 Manchester City; 9/1 Spurs; 10/1 Villa; 6/5 none of these four

When will Chelsea lose first under Di Matteo: 7/1 Leicester; 5/6 Manchester City; 13/2 Spurs; 8/1 Villa; 2/1 none of these four

Will Roberto Di Matteo be manager on the last day of the season: 1/4 yes; 11/4 no

Next Permanent Chelsea manager: 7/4 Mourinho; 4/1 Benitez; 5/1 Di Matteo; 6/1 Pep Guardiola; 9/1 Low; 9/1 Capello; 10/1 Moyes; 20/1 BAR

After the game he was cut to 5/1 as punters clamoured to back him, and now he is down to 5/2 second favourite with Hills, a fraction behind 9/4 favourite Jose Mourinho. ‘One swallow doesn;t make a summer, and one Champions League victory doesn’t make a trophy, but Chelsea fans appear to believe Di Matteo may well be the man charged with bringing the good times back to the Bridge’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.Hills now make Chelsea 11/8 to manage a top 4 finish in the Premier League – and 25/1 to turn potential disaster into triumph by winning both the FA Cup and Champions League. However, they are also 2/7 to end the season empty-handed.
Hills HAVE OPENED A BOOK on how many goals Torres will score from now until the end of the season – and make 0-3 their 4/5 favourite. ‘Even fans of rival clubs seem to want to see Torres come out of his goal drought now, but everyone is speculating on whether he will score again this season’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

United 16/1 To Win All Their Remaining Matches…how Many Points Will 17th Get?

Manchester United moved four points clear of Manchester City and William Hill make them 4/9 to retain the Premier League title with City 13/8 to win it for the first time. At the other end of the table, another heavy defeat for Wolves saw them slip to the bottom of the table and Hills think that the writing could be on the wall for Terry Connor’s men, offering 1/6 that they are relegated.

Alex Ferguson has claimed that his side need to win all of their remaining games if they are to win their 20th title and William Hill make them 16/1 to do so.

“There is no doubting that Manchester City will push their rivals all the way, but United now have the upper hand and if they win their remaining matches, will win the league,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Wolves have really struggled since dispensing of Mick McCarthy and Hills are offering 5/6 that Terry Connor is still in charge on the final day of the season (5/6 that he is not). It is not thought that the 40 point mark will be necessary for the team finishing in 17th place and Hills make 31 points or less their 21/10 favourite with 32 or 33 5/2.

Chelsea won their fourth consecutive match with Roberto Di Matteo in charge and William Hill make them 4/1 to avoid defeat in their next five matches, although they are 5/6 to lose next weekend against Manchester City.

Premier League Outright: 4/9 Manchester United; 13/8 Manchester City; 250/1 Arsenal; 250/1 Tottenham; 500/1 Chelsea

Premier League Relegation: 1/6 Wolves; 1/4 Wigan; 2/5 QPR; 5/4 Bolton; 2/1 Blackburn; 33/1 BAR

Premier League To Stay Up: 4/11 Blackburn; 4/7 Bolton; 7/4 QPR; 11/4 Wigan; 7/2 Wolves

Will Terry Connor be in charge of Wolves on the final day of the season: 5/6 yes; 5/6 no

How many points will 17th position get: 11/2 38 or more; 7/2 36 or 37; 11/4 34 or 35; 5/2 32 or 33; 21/10 31 or less

16/1 Manchester United to win all of their remaining games of 2011/12 season

When will Chelsea next lose: 5/6 Manchester City; 7/2 Tottenham; 5/1 Benfica (a); 16/1 Aston Villa; 16/1 Benfica (h); 4/1 unbeaten in any of these matches

Avb Stands On The Brink…after The Anfield Moggy Comes The Loftus Rd Squirrel, What Is Next?

Chelsea’s woeful run continued with defeat to West Brom and William Hill are offering 2/7 that Andre Villas is the next boss to leave his job with 8/11 for him to no longer be Chelsea manager on the first day of next season. Chelsea’s faltering season sees their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League hanging by a thread and William Hill offer 8/15 that they do not play in Europe’s elite competition next season.

“AVB is staring at the abyss right now and a bad result against Birmingham could be the end of him…that is of course if he lasts that long,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Hills are now offering 9/4 that he fails to score in any of the next four Chelsea games, although he is Even money to score anytime against Birmingham. Chelsea are out to 10/1 to finish as top London club this season, with Spurs 1/8 and Arsenal 13/2.

In complete contrast to Chelsea, Manchester City have now won 19 consecutive home games and William Hill make them 9/2 to win all their remaining home games this season, although they are 10/11 to fail to win in their next home match against Chelsea.

Torres Next Score?
Birmingham (A) (FAC) EVS
Stoke (H) 5/2
Napoli (H) (UCL) 5/1
Man City (A) 8/1
None of these 9/4

Loftus Road Sees Fine Display Of Nuts As Squirrel Takes To Pitch!

A squirrel stopped play at Loftus road, becoming the second animal to do so this season and William Hill have paid out to any punters who backed that particular creature halting a Premier League game at 10/1. Hills have now reopened the market and have cat and dog as the 7/2 joint favourite. Squirrel is 4/1 with mouse or rat 9/1. There has been plenty of magical football seen in the Premier League this season and Hills are offering 1000/1 that a unicorn is the next animal to stop play!

8/13 City/united Forecast…tevez May Be Kicking His Heels For Some While Yet

Manchester City made relatively light work of Blackburn and William Hill are offering 8/15 that they win the league. Their nearest rivals, Manchester United, are 13/8 to win the league. Hills are offering 8/13 for Manchester City to finish first with their rivals in second.

Carlos Tevez was nowhere to be seen as City lined up to face Blackburn and despite his apology, he may face a thankless task getting his old spot back seeing as Dzeko, Balotelli and Aguero all netted. William Hill are offering odds on when he will next don a City shirt and offer 11/4 that it is when they face Bolton on the 3rd March, 5/2 Swansea, 7/2 Chelsea, 5/1 Stoke and 11/2 Sunderland. He is 3/1 to take no part in any of these games. He is, however, 1/8 to play for City this season (9/2 not to).

“Tevez’s apology has paved the way for a return to action, but he may have to wait a while as there are three strikers ahead of him bang in form,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Premier League outright: 8/15 Manchester City; 13/8 Manchester United; 20/1 Spurs; 200/1 Chelsea; 250/1 Arsenal; 1000/1 Liverpool

Premier League top four finish: 1/300 Manchester City; 1/200 Manchester United; 1/14 Tottenham; 8/11 Chelsea; 13/8 Arsenal; 3/1 Liverpool; 12/1 Newcastle; 100/1 Sunderland; 125/1 BAR

Premier League relegation: 1/3 Wigan (9/4 to stay up); 4/6 Wolves (11/10); 8/11 Blackburn (1/1); 8/11 Bolton (1/1); 5/6 QPR (5/6); 14/1 BAR

Top London club: 1/8 Tottenham; 7/1 Chelsea; 10/1 Arsenal

Winner without Manchester: 1/8 Tottenham; 7/1 Chelsea; 10/1 Arsenal; 40/1 Liverpool

To finish bottom: 13/8 Wigan; 10/3 Wolves; 10/3 Bolton; 4/1 QPR; 4/1 Blackburn
