Hills Saved From Monster Payout By European Minnows

William Hill were celebrating a fantastic night of Champions League football as both English sides taking part were held to draws. Early estimates suggest that Hills were saved from paying out almost £350,000 on just the 90 minutes alone.

“We are popping the champagne at the moment as the unlikely combination of Genk and Marseille have saved us from a monster payout,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Our early estimate is that we have been saved from having to pay out around £350,000 on just 90 minutes and when you factor in coupons, you could be looking at a half a million.”

Hills are offering 8/1 about an all English Final this season and 40/1 for an all London Final.

Champions League outright: 7/4 Barcelona; 4/1 Real Madrid; 6/1 Manchester United; 7/1 Bayern Munich; 9/1 Chelsea; 12/1 Manchester City; 25/1 Arsenal; 25/1 AC Milan; 25/1 Inter; 66/1 BAR

Northern Ireland Out To 7/1 To Reach Euro’s

Northern Ireland have been pushed out to 7/1 from 6/1 to qualify for Euro 2012 following their disappointing draw 1-1 with the Faroe Islands on Tuesday afternoon.

Nigel Worthington’s side were odds on favourites to beat the minnows, but they were only saved an embarrassing defeat when Kyle Lafferty equalised in the 76th minute.

Northern Ireland are now quoted as 14/1 shots to win Group C by William Hill who make Italy the 4/11 favourites to win the Group.

‘Northern Ireland seem to have no problem competing against the big teams in Europe – it’s the lesser teams who are the problem,’ said William Hill spokesman Tony Kenny ‘They put in a brilliant performance against Italy last week, but they failed to follow it up in the Faroes.’
