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.

How Long Will Manchester Dominate For Now?

After two 2-0 victories for the two Manchester sides, the advantage stays on Manchester City and William Hill make them 1/9 to lift the Premier League trophy while Manchester United are 5/1. Following the dominance of both sides this season, Hills are now betting on when the League is won by anyone but the blues or reds from Manchester. Next season is the 7/4 favourite although it is 2/1 for the trophy to not be lifted by Manchester until 2015/16 or later.

“Despite the two sides being level on points, the fate of the Premier League trophy rests firmly with City and only an unlikely defeat to QPR next weekend will prevent them from lifting their first Premier League title,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

When will a non Manchester side win the Premier League: 7/4 2012/13; 11/4 2013/14; 9/2 2014/15; 2/1 2015/16 or later

Premier League Outright: 1/9 Manchester City; 5/1 Manchester United

Manchester Derby: You Bet Bookies Are Ready To Batten Down The Hatches

William Hill expect the Manchester derby to attract more bets than any other Premier League game ever. In the hour before kick off, Hills predict that up to 8,000 bets will be placed on the game. Manchester City are the 5/4 favourites to win the match, with United 5/2 and the draw 2/1.

“This is without doubt the biggest Manchester Derby ever and we are expecting betting interest to go through the roof,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “We are fully expecting this to be the busiest match, in terms of bets placed, in the history of the Premier League.”

Hills are enhancing the price of both Rooney and Tevez to open the scoring both from 7/1 to 8/1. For Tevez to score and City to win is 4/1 while Rooney to score anytime and United to win is 5/1.

After the ignominy of losing 6-1 at home the last time these two sides met, United are 500/1 to return the favour, while City are 250/1 to win by the same scoreline again.

Despite the home advantage for the derby, Manchester United are 4/9 to lift the Premier League trophy, with City 7/4.

William Hill mobile is also offering a money back special to all customers whereby should your first scorer selection score second instead, you will receive your money back in the form of a free bet (up to and including the value of £50).

5/1 Title Is Decided On Goal Difference…9/4 Van Persie Breaks 18 Year Old Record


Alex Ferguson has claimed that the Premier League title could go down to the wire with goal difference possibly being a deciding factor. William Hill offer 5/1 that the destination of the Premier League trophy is decided this way. Should that be the case, Hills think that United have the edge, offering 4/7 that they end the season with a more superior goal difference than their Manchester rivals (5/4 vice versa). Hills go 3/1 that the title is decided after the result of the Manchester Derby on the 30th April.

“This could be one of the closest title run ins yet, made all the more exciting by the fact that it is City against United,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “It is looking more and more likely that the Derby on 30th April could be the most important in recent memory.”

Robin van Persie could add to his impressive tally by bagging a goal or two on Wednesday evening against Everton and William Hill are offering 9/4 that he breaks the all time individual Premier League record goal tally of 34. He is 5/2 to outscore the entire Everton team during their match on Wednesday.

How Will Rooney Hit The Barn Door And When Will Chelsea Win?

Wayne Rooney and Didier Drogba both missed penalties last week and William Hill are offering 16/1 that any player misses a penalty during the Chelsea/Manchester United game on Sunday. Rooney’s miss was just another in a catalogue of “barn-door” moments and Hills are taking bets on how Rooney’s next goal will come about. The 4/7 favourite is for him to score a shot from inside the box with Hills offering 9/2 for a shot from outside the area. Should he be allowed to take another penalty, he is 5/1 to bag his next goal from the spot. Fortunately Rooney’s miss came as United were already in the lead and they eventually went on to win the game.

Chelsea on the other hand, seem to be going through a rather sticky patch at the moment and Hills are offering 6/5 that their next victory comes against Manchester United and 7/2 that it comes against Arsenal.

“As far as Chelsea’s title aspirations go, the next two games are vital. Anything less than a three point return and they may as well wave goodbye to the Premier League trophy,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

The early kick off on Saturday sees Bolton visit the Stadium of Light in a matchup between two of the Premier League’s surprise packages. The two sides sit in sixth and seventh and Hills are offering 13/8 that one of the pair play some form of European football next season and 16/1 that they both do. Sunderland are the 6/5 favourites to win, while the visitors are 12/5. The draw is 11/5.

“Sunderland and Bolton have been a refreshing change to the normal predictability of the league this season. In Bruce and Coyle they have two of the finest up and coming British managers and a European tour would be no less than their efforts so far deserve,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Arsenal have been drawn against Barcelona in the Champions League and as a result, Hills have cut their price to end the season without a trophy from 15/8 to 7/4. Arsene Wenger is also 4/1 to have left Arsenal by the first game of next season.

The Ghosts Of Managers Past and Present

William Hill have opened betting on who will be the first of the terrible trio (Hodgson, Benitez and Houllier) will leave their job first. Benitez is the Even money favourite, while Hodgson is 6/4 and Houllier is 7/2.

“Liverpool have a history of producing great managers: Shankley, Paisley, Dalglish et al, but their recent managers have not and are not living up to their predecessors’ high standards. One or more of the threesome may have to get used to walking alone sooner rather than later,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

William Hill Weekend Specials:

Fergie’s Old Boys (who will get the sack first?): Keane 1/4; Bruce 11/2; Hughes 5/1
Liverpool past and present (who will get the sack first?): Hodgson 6/4 ; Benitez EVS; Houllier 7/2
Sunderland OR Bolton to qualify for Europe. 13/8
Sunderland AND Bolton to qualify for Europe. 16/1
Will Arsene Wenger be at Arsenal on the first game of next season: 1/7 Yes; 4/1 No
7/4 Arsenal end the 2010/11 season without a trophy

When will Chelsea next win?
Man Utd (H)

Arsenal (A)

Bolton (H)

Aston Villa (H)

Wolves (A)

None of these

Method of Next Rooney Goal: 4/7 shot from inside the box (excluding header & penalty); 9/2 Shot from outside the box (excluding header or free kick); 5/1 Penalty; 6/1 Header; 12/1 Direct from free kick.
