FA Cup Tips

Luton v Millwall

Giant killers Luton became the first non-league side to beat Premier League opposition in the FA Cup with their dramatic win over Norwich City in the last round. With home advantage against Championship opponents, the Hatters will be anticipating another positive result but Millwall won’t make it easy.

The Lions may have enjoyed a mixed season in the league but the side caused a shock of their own by eliminating Premiership Aston Villa in the last round. Form however, is poor with only one point taken from their last four Championship matches.

Luton are struggling too and have lost both their games since the Norwich win. However, expect the
FA Cup  to lift the hosts to a draw at the end of ninety minutes.

Oldham v Everton

Having recorded an incredible win over Liverpool in the 4th round, Oldham will be looking for another Premiership scalp when they host Everton in a live televised match. However, the league one side are in disarray after the resignation of manager Paul Dickov this week and that remarkable Cup win has masked a poor season.

Oldham are just outside of the relegation places and after four straight defeats, the club could be destined for league two football next year.

Naturally, Everton will be wary of the threat that the hosts possess and manager David Moyes won’t be happy at dropping two points at home to struggling Aston Villa last weekend. However, Everton are enjoying an impressive season overall and they should seal a narrow away win here.

Manchester City v Leeds United

After their impressive 2-1 home win over Spurs in the last round, Leeds’ reward is a daunting trip to the Etihad and a tie with Roberto Mancini’s Manchester City. Manager Neil Warnock may consider this is a good time to be playing a side who were some way below their best in drawing at home to Liverpool but can the visitors get another positive result?

As for Leeds themselves, they look a weaker side having sold Luciano Becchio to Norwich City in the transfer window and this should be a comfortable win for Manchester City.

 

Arsenal Will Gir-roud The Day They Sold Rvp

Robin van Persie looks set to sign for Manchester United and William Hill make him 8/11 to score more Premier League goals than Wayne Rooney and he is 5/6 to score 22 or more goals. Van Persie won last season’s PFA player of the year award and he is 7/2 to pick up the award again this season. The loss of van Persie could have an adverse effect on Arsenal and they are odds on, at 8/15 to finish lower than the third place they finished last season while Manchester United are 5/6 to score more than the 89 goals that they scored last term.

Van Persie is 8/1 to score four or more Premier League goals against his former club this season while he is 11/10 to outscore both Giroud and Podolski put together.

“It looks as though van Persie will hit the ground running for Manchester United and he could possibly reach a similar goals tally to what he approached last season while at the other end of the spectrum, without his goals, Arsenal’s grip on third spot may slip,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

There are a couple of names who could be elbowed out of Old Trafford following RVP’s arrival and Javier Hernandez is 7/2 to move to Arsenal from Manchester United and 9/2 to move to Spurs. Real Madrid have often been linked with the striker and he is 10/1 to move to the Bernabeu from Old Trafford. Dimitar Berbatov could also be on his way and Hills make QPR the 4/1 favourites to secure his signature upon him leaving Old Trafford.

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.

Premiership: Fergie Failure: When Will Rvp Hit Back Of Net?

Following a disappointing result for Manchester United, Manchester City have been trimmed from 13/10 to 6/5 to win the Premiership title. Hills now offer even money that Manchester United will not top the Premiership table in 2012 and although it is 4/5 that Van Persie breaks his duck at the weekend, it is 7/2 he fails to hit the back of the net in the next four fixtures.

“Tonight was a great result for the bookies and Sir Alex & RVP will need to raise their game if they are to win back their title,” said Hill’s spokesman Rupert Adams.

Will Manchester United Top The Premiership Table Before Dec 31st?: 8/11 Yes, 1/1 No

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.

William Hill Premier League Specials:

Three promoted sides to stay up: 3/1

Goalkeeper to score at any point during the season: 16/1

Any opposition side to win a penalty at Old Trafford: 1/4 yes; 11/4 no

Player to score 6 or more goals in a single EPL game: 20/1

Any side to score 10 or more goals in a single EPL game: 20/1

Any player to score 30 or more goals in a single season: 1/5 no; 10/3 yes

Englishman to be top EPL scorer: 2/1

First manager to be sent to the stands this season: 9/1 Mark Hughes; 11/1 Paul Lambert; 11/1 David Moyes; 12/1 Roberto Mancini; 12/1 Tony Pulis; 12/1 Martin O’Neill; 12/1 Andre Villas-Boas; 12/1 Sam Allardyce; 16/1 Arsene Wenger; 16/1 Martin Jol; 16/1 Alan Pardew; 16/1 Chris Hughton; 16/1 Nigel Adkins; 16/1 Michael Laudrup; 16/1 Steve Clarke; 20/1 Roberto Di Matteo; 20/1 Brendan Rodgers; 20/1 Sir Alex Ferguson; 20/1 Brian McDermott; 25/1 Roberto Martinez

Manchester City are also 2/5 to finish higher than Chelsea in the league this season (7/4 not to). Manchester City are100/1 to win te quadruple this season (Premier League, Capital One Cup, FA Cup & Champions League).

“City were favourites for the Community Shield and they duly delivered and at the same time, sent out a warning to their rivals that they are the team to beat,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “They are our favourites to win the League as well and our punters certainly seem to agree with us with most of the pre-season money on City to do the business.”

Manchester City now have bragging rights over their title rivals and Hills think the pressure is already on Di Matteo, offering 11/10 that he is no longer Chelsea manager on the final day of the season and 14/1 that Pep Guardiola is leading the Blues at the end of the season.

Community Shield: Pressure On Di Matteo Already

Manchester City are the 4/6 favourites to lift the Community Shield on Sunday with William Hill also making the League Champions 2/5 to finish higher than Chelsea in the League this season.

“The Community Shield enables sides to get one over on their prospective title rivals but we think that if Chelsea lose this one, the pressure could be on Di Matteo already,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Formerly known as the Charity Shield, Hills offer 7/2 that there is no charity and that a red card is shown during the match.

Community Shield:

90 minutes: 5/4 Man City; 11/5 Chelsea; 23/10 Draw

Allen Key For Liverpool This Season But Prem Is A Long Way Off

Joe Allen has finally completed his move to Liverpool and William Hill think that he will slot straight into the Red’s starting XI offering 1/6 that he starts next week’s opening Premier League fixture against West Brom. He is 1/5 to start more games than last season’s flop signings Charlie Adam and Jordan Henderson. Allen will also be expected to chip in with a few goals and he is 2/1 to score four or five this season and 5/2 to grab six or more.

Allen’s arrival comes in the same week as a Liverpool fan walked into a shop in central Liverpool and placed £22,000 e/w on his side winning the league at 25/1. Should Liverpool win the League he will scoop £777,333.33 and should they finish second, he will pick up £205,333.33.

Liverpool are now 16/1 to win the league, but are a long way behind Manchester sides City and United, who are offered at 11/8 and 11/4 respectively. After Liverpool, Manchester City have been by far the best backed side and for the first time since the Premier League came into existence, punters are pretty much staying away from Manchester United.

“Joe Allen and Fabio Borini are two good players and certainly ones to watch for the future, but whether they will provide the quality that Liverpool quite obviously need to win the league or even come close looks a far stretch,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Starts for Liverpool match bet: 1/5 Joe Allen; 4/1 Jordan Henderson; 10/1 Charlie Adam

Joe Allen Premier League goals: 10/3 0-1; 9/4 2-3; 2/1 4-5; 5/2 6 or more

To start vs West Brom: 1/6 yes; 7/2 no

Premier League winner: 11/8 Manchester City; 11/4 Manchester United; 5/1 Chelsea; 12/1 Arsenal; 16/1 Liverpool; 25/1 Tottenham; 150/1 BAR
