Man City Backed To Win Record Breaking 2012/13 Season

The new Premier League season is just around the corner and William Hill make Manchester City the 6/5 favourites to lift the trophy and Hill’s punters agree. City are the second best backed side with only Liverpool attracting more money – largely down to the fact that one punter has staked £22,000 e/w on the Reds winning the Premier league. For the first time in Premier League history, punters are mostly staying away from Manchester United who are the 5/2 second favourites for the trophy.

At the other end of the table, the three new sides will be hoping to emulate the success of Swansea, Norwich and QPR and Hills offer 3/1 that Southampton, Reading and West Ham follow suit.

“Success for the newly promoted sides will always be based on whether they survive or not and we think there is a very good chance that they will all survive this time around,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

This year could well be a record breaker and William Hill offer 20/1 about any player bagging a double hat-trick and the same price that any team scores 10 or more goals in a single game. However, some things never change and 11/4 is offered that any opposition side wins a penalty at Old Trafford.

Discipline will be at the forefront of everybody’s mind after Branislav Ivanovic’s red card in the Community Shield and William Hill offer 6/1 that QPR are the side that sees the most reds while their manager Mark Hughes is 9/1 favourite to be the first manager to be sent to the stands.
