Wednesday Specials…relegation Battle, Wenger And Senegalese Hotshots

Three of the sides involved in the Premier League relegation battle are involved on Wednesday’s Premier League fixtures and William Hill are betting on how many points Bolton, Blackburn and QPR get between them. Hills offer 66/1 that all three sides win and 7/1 that all three lose. Hills also offer 2/7 that QPR are the highest placed out of the three Premier League teams following Wednesday’s fixtures.

Arsenal take on Bolton followed swiftly by a match against fellow strugglers Blackburn, who beat them earlier in the campaign, and two victories could see them back in the race for a top four place, Blackburn and William Hill offer 11/10 that they take maximum points from the two games. Two defeats, however and Arsene Wenger could be under intense pressure. Hills go 33/1 that they are beaten twice. Arsene Wenger is 11/10 to have left Arsenal by the first game of next season and 11/4 to be the boss of Real Madrid come the first game of next season.

“These two Arsenal matches could defining in more ways than one and two victories for the Gunners could have a massive impact at both ends of the table,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Hills make Robin van Persie 5/4 to outscore the rest of the Arsenal team against Bolton.

Newcastle’s two Senegalese strikers could be back from International duty to play against Blackburn and William Hill go 11/4 that Demba Ba scores more than new boy, Papiss Cisse in the match (10/3 vice versa and 4/7 for the tie).

England 7/4 To Win Group G With Games To Spare

Bookmakers William Hill are offering a number of specials about how England will fare in their Euro 2012 group. Hills offer 4/1 that England get maximum points from their remaining fixtures and 5/4 that they fall just short with 19-21 points. They are 7/4 to score between 19 and 21 goals and 9/2 to score 22 or more goals. Hills think that Group G is going to be incredibly tight and offer 7/4 that England win the group with games to spare, but 2/5 that they do not.

Jermaine Defoe is currently England’s leading scorer in Euro 2012 qualifiers with three and Hills go 5/4 that he ends the campaign as top marksman. Darren Bent is 6/4 second favourite, while Lampard and Rooney are 6/1 and 7/1 respectively.

“”England are top of their group and while they are expected to qualify, the odds suggest that it will be closer than many would expect,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

England are 2/5 to win the match at Wembley with Switzerland 6/1. The draw is priced at 14/5. Hills also offer 3/1 that any England substitute scores a goal. Darren Bent is the 10/3 favourite to open the scoring on Saturday, with Peter Crouch 9/2, joint second favourite with Bobby Zamora.

England are 8/1 to win Euro 2012 and 12/1 to win the competition without losing a game either in qualifying or the finals themselves.

With Wayne Rooney banned for the England match against Switzerland, William Hill are betting on which of the three forwards in the squad will start the game. Darren Bent is 1/7 while Peter Crouch is 1/4. Bobby Zamora is 11/4. The central midfield is another position that is up for grabs during the match and Hills make Scott Parker, Frank Lampard and Jack Wilshere all odds on to start, with Capello thought to be considering three men across the middle. Parker is 4/9, while Lampard is 1/10 and Jack Wilshere 4/11.

To Start vs Switzerland:
Peter Crouch 1/4 Yes; 11/4 No
Darren Bent 1/7 Yes; 4/1 No
Bobby Zamora 11/4 Yes; 1/4 No
Scott Parker 4/9 Yes; 13/8 No
Frank Lampard 1/10 Yes; 11/2 No
Jack Wilshere 4/11 Yes; 2/1 No

Feelgood Factor Kicks In As Punters Pile On ‘ Pool

‘FEELGOOD FACTOR’ KICKS IN AS PUNTERS PILE ON ‘POOL

William Hill have cut Liverpool’s odds against Everton from 2/1 to 19/10 as punters bet on the feelgood factor kicking in as they play their first game since the new owners were announced. ‘We’ve only made a slight cut to Liverpool’s odds, but since the takeover was announced we’ve seen an upsurge in support for Liverpool to win the fixture with one punter in a branch in Chester gambling £4000 on them – the biggest bet we’ve seen all season for a Liverpool away win!” said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Merseyside Derbies are usually feisty affairs and William Hill are offering odds of 2/1 that there is a red card shown during the game. Liverpool, who go into Sunday’s game behind Everton and in the relegation zone, are 4/6 to finish the season in a higher league position than their Merseyside rivals. Hills have also cut their odds from 4/1 to 7/2 that Liverpool take all six points from Everton this season, while the blue side of Liverpool is out from 6/1 to 9/1 to take maximum points in the two grudge games. ‘Bragging rights are particularly important to these fans this season and draws are not a lot of good to either side at the moment’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

HOW LONG WILL NESV OWN LIVERPOOL?

William Hill have opened a book on when Liverpool’s new owners, NESV, will become ex-owners. ‘Fans will believe that John W Henry and his NESV colleagues are in for the long hal at Liverpool, but they may be disappointed’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe:

Hills: WHEN WILL LIVERPOOL’S NEW OWNERS SELL THE CLUB ON?

Before 31/12/2012

1/1/2013 – 31/12/2016

After 1/1/2017

LIVERPOOL ODDS -ON TO WIN NOTHING AGAIN

DESPITE acquiring new owners, Liverpool are still big odds-on shots to end the season with no major trophy to their credit. William Hill make them 1/12 to win no trophies, but offer 9/1 that they can win the FA Cup and 10/1 to land the Europa League.

Man Utd are the 8/1 favourites to score the fastest goal this weekend and Owen Hargreaves, who is making his latest come back from injury, is 8/1 to score at any time.
