7/2 For More Penalty Woes For Home Nations In 2014

Team GB caught the missed penalty bug, losing to South Korea and William Hill offer 7/2 that any of England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland exit World Cup 2014 on penalties. Hills also go 1/3 that Team GB make no appearance in the Olympic 2016 tournament.

“As soon as Saturday’s match went to penalties, there was only really going to be one outcome such is the resignation with which British players now view shootouts,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Will any of England, Wales, Scotland or NI be knocked out of World Cup 2014 on penalties: 7/2 yes; 1/6 no
*includes qualification play offs

Team GB to take part in Olympics tournament in Brazil: 1/3 no; 9/4 yes
*does not include qualifying

Bookies Cannot Separate League 2 Hopefuls

William Hill cannot separate Stevenage and Torquay as they go head to head for a spot in League One, with both sides offered at 7/4 for victory at Old Trafford. The draw is 2/1. Torquay have kept a clean sheet in seven of their last nine games and Hills are offering 8/5 that they do so during Saturday’s game. Torquay’s Chris Zebroski is the 6/1 favourite to score first, while Stevenage’s Craig Reid and Byron Harrison are both 13/2 to do likewise. Stevenage are 4/5 to lift the trophy, while Torquay are 10/11.

“Just one point separated these two sides at the end of this season and the betting suggests that this game will be nip and tuck all the way,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Huddersfield are the slight 6/4 favourites to defeat 19/10 Peterborough on Sunday, while Swansea just shade the betting for Monday’s Championship match at 17/10 against 9/5 Reading.

Hills are 11/5 that the Stevenage vs Torquay game is the highest scoring game of the three Play-Off matches. Hills offer 13/8 that one of the three games goes to penalties and 3/1 that all three sides promoted via the Play-Offs avoid relegation next season.

90 Minutes:
7/4 Stevenage; 7/4 Torquay; 2/1 Draw

WESLEY SNEIJDER is 6/4 favourite with William Hill to win the prestigious Ballon d’Or Award following the announcement of the short-list of candidates. ‘Against him is the fact that he doesn’t play for the World Cup winners but other than that Wesley Sneijder would be a desreved winner.

Champions League Specials – Beckham And Play Offs

*********************************William Hill CHAMPIONS LEAGUE SPECIALS:
PREMIER LEAGUE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE PLAY OFFS A NON STARTER? YOU BET….
BOOKMAKERS William Hill are offering 9/2 that the Premier League WILL introduce a play off to determine who gets the fourth Champions League place, during the 2010/11 season – but offer 1/8 that they will NOT. ‘This may seem an attractive idea in theory, but could result in a team finishing perhaps a dozen points or more away from an automatic Champions League place eventually qualifying for the tournament – what purpose would that serve? It would also mean more matches for tired players, which probably wouldn’t play well with international team bosses. Would Capello be happy if that system were in place this season and a key player was injured as a result? We think it is a non-starter.’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
