***premier League Opening Fixtures 2012/13***

Euro 2012 is not even past the group stages yet but the fixtures for the new season of the Premier League have been announced with champions Manchester City starting their defence with a home game against newly promoted Southampton, who are 11/1 to pull off a shock.

Brendan Rodgers takes charge of his first Liverpool game at the Hawthorns. West Brom have never won an opening day fixture in the Premier League but are 11/5 to buck that trend against Liverpool. Rodgers and Liverpool are 1/1 to pick up all three points. It is 7/1 that both Liverpool and Everton win.

Euros Latest: Shevchenko 10/1 For Golden Boot

Euro co-hosts, Ukraine went top of Group D after an Andriy SheVChenko brace and William Hill make them 4/6 to qualify from the group and 4/1 to win it. SheVChenko is 10/1 to bag the golden boot.

“SheVChenko is a national hero in the Ukraine and even more so now,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Just imagine what it would be like if he ended the tournament with the golden boot.”

England drew with France and given the way in which the Three Lions have set up in Roy Hodgson’s first three games, they could all be tight affairs and they are 14/1 to remain unbeaten but to go out at the group stages.

14/1 – England to go unbeaten but fail to qualify

Group D winner: 6/4 France; 7/4 England; 4/1 Ukraine; 11/2 Sweden

Golden boot: 5/1 Mario Gomez; 8/1 Alan Dzagoev; 10/1 Zlatan Ibrahimovic; 10/1 Andriy Shevhenko; 12/1 Karim Benzema; 14/1 Antonio Di Natale; 14/1 Mario Mandzukic; 16/1 BAR

Tournament winner: 5/2 Germany; 3/1 Spain; 9/1 France; 10/1 Italy; 12/1 Holland; 12/1 England; 12/1 Russia; 20/1 Portugal; 25/1 Croatia; 401Ukraine; 40/1 Denmark; 50/1 Poland; 100/1 Czech Republic; 100/1 Sweden; 100/1 Greece; 250/1 Republic of Ireland

To qualify from the group (not to): 4/9 France (13/8) ; 8/15 England (11/8); 4/6 Ukraine (11/10); 9/2 Sweden (1/8)

Kelly To Replace Cahill…but He Will Not Replace Him In Starting Xi

Gary Cahill has been withdrawn from the England squad to add to Roy Hodgson’s woes and his replacement, Martin Kelly, is 1/3 with William Hill to see no action during the Three Lions three group games (9/4 to make any kind of appearance vs France, Ukraine or Sweden). Cahill’s injury means that a maximum of 10 of Saturday’s XI vs Belgium will be able to start against France and Hills offer 7/1 that all ten of those take their places next week. The most likely, however, is eight of the players to start at 8/11 with nine at Even money.

“Cahill will be a big loss considering the fact that it looked like he was going to be starting alongside Terry and now it looks like Lescott will have to step up to the plate,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

How any of England’s starting XI vs Belgium will start against France: 25/1 seven or fewer; 8/11 eight; 1/1 nine; 7/1 ten

Martin Kelly to make any kind of appearance during England’s group stages: 9/4 yes; 1/3 no

Dutch Courage For Youngsters Ahead Of Replacing Rooney And Bent At Euros

England face Holland on Wednesday and with the Dutch two places higher in the FIFA rankings than England, William Hill offer 4/6 that they progress further in Euro 2012 than England (11/10 vice versa). England are 8/1 to win the tournament, but are 2/1 to go out in the group stages and the same price to go out in the quarter finals.

Darren Bent has been confirmed as being out for three months and William Hill are offering 1/2 that Theo Walcott starts against France, 5/6 Daniel Sturridge does, 11/10 Danny Welbeck and 5/1 Adam Johnson.

“With Wayne Rooney out of the first two games and now the natural replacement, Darren Bent, potentially being out of the whole tournament, the goalscoring burden may now rest on the very young collective shoulders of Walcott, Sturridge and Welbeck,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Harry Redknapp remains in the driving seat to become the next England manager (4/9) and is odds on, at 1/2 to be in charge of them during the European Championships. Stuart Pearce is 2/1 with any other manager offered at 7/1. England are 12/1 to win the Euros under Redknapp, 25/1 to do so under Pearce and 50/1 to lift the trophy under any other manager.

Robin van Persie will undoubtedly be looking to continue his rich vein of form at Wembley and Hills make him 4/1 to outscore England when they meet on Wednesday and he is 5/1 to outscore England for the whole of the tournament in the summer.

England stage of elimination at Euro 2012: 2/1 Quarter final; 2/1 group stage; 4/1 Semi final; 6/1 runner up; 8/1 winner

England manager at Euro 2012: 1/2 Harry Redknapp; 2/1 Stuart Pearce; 7/1 Any other manager

England to win Euro 2012 under Harry Redknapp: 12/1

England to win Euro 2012 under Stuart Pearce: 25/1

England to win Euro 2012 under any manager that is not Stuart Pearce or Harry Redknapp: 50/1

Who will start England’s first game of Euro 2012: 1/2 Theo Walcott (6/4 not to); 5/6 Daniel Sturridge (5/6); 11/10 Danny Welbeck (4/6); 5/1 Adam Johnson (1/9); 6/1 Frazier Campbell (1/12); 6/1 Peter Crouch (1/12); 6/1 Jermaine Defoe (1/12); 10/1 Andy Carroll (1/33); 12/1 Bobby Zamora (1/50); 33/1 Michael Owen (1/300)

Manchester Misery In Champions League…tevez Tantrum Means 11/4 To Not Start All Season

Both sides of Manchester failed to win in the Champions League and William Hill are offering 9/1 that both fail to qualify for the knock out rounds of the competition. City have now failed to win in two matches and are 7/4 to now finish third in Group A with top spot a drifting 9/2. Carlos Tevez refused to come off the bench and play for City in Munich and Hills offer 11/4 that he does not start another Premier League game for City this season.

“A disappointing evening was rounded off by Tevez refusing to come off the bench and the odds suggest that Mancini may well have finally lost patience with City’s former captain,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Despite the setback at Old Trafford, Manchester United are the 13/8 favourites to progress the furthest of all the British sides in this year’s Champions League. An all Manchester Final is 40/1.

British Team to progress the furthest: 13/8 Manchester United; 7/4 Chelsea; 7/2 Manchester City; 5/1 Arsenal

Tottenham are the 7/4 favourites to progress furthest of all the British sides in the competition with Stoke overtaking Fulham in the betting following their impressive draw in Kiev, at 15/8. Paris St Germain are the 8/1 favourites to lift the trophy at the moment with Atletico Madrid 11/1, however, Hills are offering 2/1 that any side dropping down from the Champions League after the group stages goes on to win the competition.

“It was hardly a vintage night for British football in the Europa League but despite this, we think there could be a chance of an all British final this year” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Europa League: You Bet Brits Could Be Major Players This Year

The Europa League group stages kick off on Thursday evening and William Hill make Tottenham the 5/4 favourites to be the British side to progress the furthest with Fulham 11/4. Spurs are the current 10/1 second favourites behind Paris St Germain to lift the trophy, although Hills are offering 2/1 that the winner comes from the Champions League. It would appear that Birmingham and Celtic have the toughest tasks of the British sides with them both being made odds on to fail to get through the group stages, both offered at 4/7 to exit at the first.

“Despite being a lesser competition than the Champions League, the odds suggest that if some of the British teams play their strongest sides then they could well be major players this year,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Birmingham stage of Elimination: 4/7 Group Stage; 11/4 round of 32; 8/1 round of 16; 12/1 Quarter Final; 16/1 Semi Final; 40/1 Runner Up; 100/1 Winner

Hills offer 5/6 that both Rangers and Celtic qualify for the group stage and 25/1 that all three Scottish sides progress. Hills go 9/2 about all of the English sides progressing.

You Bet: Cesc Will Be Fab For Barca And How Will Arsenal Do Without Their Talisman?

New Barcelona signing Cesc Fabregas is rated a 6/4 chance by William Hill to start more league games for Barcelona than the talismanic Xavi (1/2). The bookies are also offering odds of 10/1 for Fabregas to make more league appearances for the Blaugrana than his idol and current Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola (263).

“Fabregas has taken the number four, the same number that Guardiola wore at the Camp Nou and it will be interesting to see whether he surpasses the achievements of his once idol and current mentor,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

The former Arsenal captain is rated a 12/1 chance to score against the Gunners this season and the same price to play again for the North London club before the end of his career.

“Arsenal made Cesc into the player that he is today and it is feasible that he could well turn out for the Gunners again before the end of his career,” said Crilly.

Hills are also offering odds on Cesc’s number of league starts for Barcelona this season and the number of goals he’ll score for the defending champions this season.

With Cesc out of the door at the Emirates, Hills think that a mass exodus may have been sparked and offer 1/2 that Samir Nasri is sold before the end of the transfer window and 15/2 that Robin Van Persie is.

Arsenal have to take on Udinese without Fabregas now and William Hill have priced up where they will exit the Champions League. They are 5/2 to go out to the Italians and 9/4 to exit at the group stages. They are 20/1 to win the competition.
