Premier League Is Back And Punters Cannot Wait!!!!!

Manchester City are the best backed side to win the Premier League with William Hill and the current Champions are 6/5 with Manchester United attracting only slight interest despite their large investment over the summer. The biggest bet that Hills have taken on the Premier League is for Liverpool, where a shop punter placed £22,000 e/w on the Reds lifting the trophy at 25/1.

“Despite the fact that we’ve had a busy sporting summer, turnover on our antepost football markets has increased quite markedly,” said Hill’ spokesman Joe Crilly. “We were offering top price on every single side to win the Premier League which proved incredibly popular and also shows that despite the glitz and glamour of the Euros and the Olympics, the Premier League remains the number one sporting event in the UK.”

After last season’s nail biting finale to the season, William Hill are offering 100/1 that the destination of the Premier League trophy is decided in added time of the final match of the season. Hills also have a number of other specials including 16/1 for any goalkeeper to score a goal this season, while 3/1 is available for all three promoted sides to stay up.

Nigel Adkins is the 7/2 favourite to lose the managerial sack race at 7/2, backed in pre-season from 20/1.
