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.

Who Will Win The Battle Of The Prem’s New Wonderkids?

Who Will Win The Battle Of The Prem’s New Wonderkids?

With two teenage starlets set to sign for Arsenal and Chelsea, William Hill are offering a match bet between who will score more goals between Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Romelu Lukaku. The 17 year old Southampton player is 7/2 to score more goals than his Belgian counterpart who is 11/8 to score more goals. Chamberlain is, however, slight favourite of the two to start more games than Lukaku, who is 5/2 to do so.

“Wenger is known for his love of blooding youngsters at Arsenal and with the attacking options available to Andre Villas-Boas, Lukaku may find starts hard to come by,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “But the Belgian striker has shown he has a great goalscoring ability and that is not to be sniffed at.”

With Sir Alex Ferguson claiming that 84 points will win the Premier League this season, William Hill are offering 5/1 that the winner obtains that exact number of points. 13/8 that less points are won to secure the title and 4/6 that the winner of the Premier League has to score more than that.

Last season, 1063 goals were scored in the Premier League and Hills offer 100/1 that the same total is matched exactly. 10/11 is available for fewer to be scored and 4/5 for more.

How many points will win the EPL: 13/8 Under 84; 5/1 84; 4/6 Over 84

How many goals will be scored in this season’s EPL: 10/11 under 1063; 100/1 exactly 1063; 4/5 over 1063

Chamberlain vs Lukaku:

Most Starts: 2/1 Chamberlain; 5/2 Lukaku; 1/1 Tie

Most Goals: 7/2 Chamberlain; 11/8 Lukaku; 11/10 Tie

Kenny Odds On To Improve Liverpool – But Will It Be Enough ?

YOU BET KING KENNY WILL IMPROVE LIVERPOOL – BUT WILL HE GET THE JOB FULL TIME?

William Hill offer 1/5 that Liverpool will end the season in a higher position than their current 12th place, but still offer odds against Kenny Dalglish getting the job as boss on a permanent basis, quoting him at 13/8 to do so, with Martin O’Neill the 4/1 second favourite; Frank Rijkaard and Owen Coyle both 5/1; Ralf Rangnick 6/1 and Andre Villas-Boas 8/1, while Guus Hiddink and Manuel Pellegrini are both 10/1. ‘Kenny’s first game in charge was certainly eventful but the jury is still out over whether he is the right man to take the club forward on a permanent basis’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Bye , Roy , You Bet Avram’s Favourite To Be Next To Go

WELSH WINDFALL AS HODGSON GOES

A William Hill client from Wales who gambled £2000 that Roy Hodgson would be the next Premier League manager to leave his club will now collect £3140 after the 4/7 wager obliged.’Hodgson was red hot favourite to be the next boss out and the market leader has duly obliged’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
William Hill are now betting on who will succeed Hodgson on a permanent basis and make caretaker boss Kenny Dalglish the 13/8 favourite. Hills also offer 4/1 Martin O’Neill; 5/1 Rijkaard; and Owen Coyle; 6/1 Ralf Rangnick; 8/1 Villas-Boas; 10/1 Benitez; 14/1 Hiddink; Pellegrini; 20/1 Deschamps; Hitzfeld; Klopp.

YOU BET AVRAM WON’T BE GRANTED YET ANOTHER STAY OF EXECUTION!

AVRAM GRANT is now 1/3 favourite with William Hill to be the next Premier League manager to leave his job this season. ‘I think Avram Grant has now been favourite in this market on at least four different occasions this season but has somehow clung on to foil punters every time!’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Champions’ League: 11/4 ’06 Final Repeated In Last 16

Arsenal won against Partizan with relative ease tonight and William Hill have priced them at 11/1 to win this year’s Champions’ League. Conversely, Chelsea lost for the first time in this year’s competition against Marseille as their poor run of form continued and they have eased from 4/1 to 5/1 . Hills are offering 11/10 that Chelsea’s next victory comes against Tottenham at the weekend and 12/1 that they do not win a game until AFTER they have played Bolton on the 28th December 2010.

Hills are offering 5/1 that two British teams contest the Champions’ League final, while Chelsea are the 11/8 favourites to be the British team to progress the furthest in the competition.

Arsenal finished second in their group, which means that they could come up against Barcelona, the 9/4 favourites to win the competition and Hills are offering 11/4 that the teams that competed the ’06 final face each other in the last 16.

Ancelotti 5/4 To Be Gone By First Day Of Next Season

Blues 12/1 not to win any of next Prem 4 games
ANCELOTTI 5/4 TO BE GONE BY FIRST DAY OF NEXT SEASON

William Hill have cut their odds about Carlo Ancelotti leaving Chelsea before the first day of next season – and opened a book on when the club will next win a Premier League game.
Hills make Ancelotti 5/4 to be gone before next season gets underway, 4/7 still to be boss at that point – and Chelsea are 12/1 with Hills to fail to win any of their next four Prem matches and 7/1 to finish outside of the top four. ‘All of a sudden what looked to be the merest of blips is beginning to turn into a fully fledged crisis at the Bridge’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
