Ireland Down And Out And Set To Be Hammered Italy

Ireland’s chances of finishing their Euros campaign with a win look very slim, with William Hill offering 10/1 for a win for Trap’s men. Italy are 1/4 for the win with the draw offered at 5/1. After conceding the fourth fastest Euros goal ever against Croatia and then conceding in the fifth minute against Spain, the Irish are 9/1 to concede in the first five minutes vs Italy. Italy are 10/3 to score four or more goals and 16/5 to bag three goals.

“Euro 2012 has been a tournament to forget for Ireland but it is not over and Italy will be looking to take advantage of the porous Irish defence – especially early on,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Having waited ten years to qualify for a major tournament, it looks like another long wait for Irish fans with Hills offering 11/8 that they do not qualify for another tournament until after World Cup 2020.

With a 2-2 draw between Spain and Croatia enough to see them both through to the next stage of the tournament, Hills punters have latched onto that and backed the result in from 12/1 to 4/1. Spain are 1/7 to win the group with Croatia 5/1 and Italy 14/1.

Total Italy goals: 6/1 none; 11/4 one; 9/4 two; 16/5 three; 10/3 four or more+

Next Ireland tournament: 7/2 World Cup 2014; 11/8 Euro 2016; 7/1 World Cup 2020; 11/8 qualify for none of these

9/1 Ireland concede in the first five minutes vs Italy

1/4 Italy; 10/1 Rep of Ireland; 5/1 Draw
7/1 Croatia; 8/11 Spain; 7/4 draw

Group C winner: 1/7 Spain; 5/1 Croatia; 14/1 Italy

To qualify from Group C (not to): 1/25 Spain (9/1); 5/6 Croatia (5/6); 5/6 Italy (5/6)

66/1 For Germany To Win The Euros…let’s Just Hope For Clean Sheets

Germany are 5/2 favourites to win the European Championships and with their price being backed all the time, it will only get shorter. Having won their opening game 1-0 against Portugal, Germany are now 66/1 to win the tournament without conceding a goal.

“There may be a few punters who will be kicking themselves because they did not manage to grab any of the 5/1 that we offered a couple of months before the tournament started, but they now have the opportunity to back a relatively realistic 66/1 shot,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Germany take on Holland on Wednesday and Hills make them 6/4 slight favourites, with Holland 19/10 and the draw 21/10.

Cristiano Ronaldo flattered to deceive somewhat in Portugal’s first game at the Euros, but Hills think that he could spark to life against Denmark and is 3/1 to score more goals than the Danes in their match on Tuesday.

Group B – Winner: 1/3 Germany; 9/2 Denmark; 8/1 Holland; 14/1 Portugal

Group B – To qualify (not qualify): 1/16 Germany (7/1); 10/11 Denmark (10/11); 7/4 Portugal (2/5); 9/4 Holland (1/3)

66/1 Germany to win Euros without conceding a goal

Goals match bet: 3/1 Ronaldo; 13/8 Denmark; 10/11 Draw

Misfiring Torres 1/6 To Fail To Score At Euros

Spain were somewhat upset by Italy in their opening group game of the Euros although the ain talking point continues to be the ever declining form of Fernando Torres. William Hill offer 7/4 that he gets no more minutes during the tournament. He is 1/6 to score no goals at the Euros and 2/7 to fail to start the next game for Spain.

“Four years ago, as Spain won this trophy, Torres could do no wrong, now, however, it seems as though the golden boy has well and truly fallen from grace and it may not be just goals that he is struggling for but minutes as well,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Fernando Torres:

To play again at Euro 2012: 2/5 yes; 7/4 no
*starts and substitutions count

Will Torres score at Euros: 1/6 no; 7/2 yes

Start Spain’s game against Ireland: 2/7 no; 5/2 yes

How Many Goals Will Euro Top Scorer Get ?

HOW MANY WILL EURO TOP SCORER GET?

William Hill have opened a market on how many goals the leading scorer(s) at Euro 12 will score. Last time round in 2008 the winning total was four, but in the three previous tournaments it was five – and Hills make 5 their 11/8 joint favourite along with 4 or fewer, also at 11/8 while 6 or more is a 5/2 chance. ‘Those expecting the tournament to be a goal-fest ma well be attracted by the six or more option’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills have seen support for Benzema, from 20/1 to 16/1, and Jelavic from 66/1 to 40/1 in their Euro top scorer market.

Tevez 7/2 To Make Scoring Return From The Bench…

Carlos Tevez could make an astonishing comeback for Manchester City against Chelsea on Wednesday and William Hill are offering 7/2 that he comes off the bench and grabs himself a goal. Tevez is 5/4 to score anytime during the game and 5/1 to score the first goal of the game. Hills think that should he make a comeback for City this season he will more than likely be firing blanks, offering 11/10 that he scores no goals for the rest of the season.

On the other side on Wednesday will be Fernando Torres who grabbed a brace on Sunday and William Hill are offering Even money that he fails to score for at least two hours from the time of his last goal on Sunday (currently stands at 5 minutes).

Tevez to come off bench and score: 7/2 – void if he starts and void if not on bench
Tev goals rest of season: 11/10 none; 5/2 one; 4/12 two; 4/1 three or more

How long until Torres’ next goal: 7/2 0-60 minutes; 5/2 61-120 minutes; 5/1 121-180 minutes; 1/1 180 minutes or more

Who will score more EPL goals between now until the end of the season:
2/9 Torres; 3/1 Tevez
8/11 Torres; 1/1 Carroll
