You Bet Premier League Going Down To The Wire At Both Ends Of The Table

QPR secured a fantastic last minute win against Stoke, which moved them two points clear of Bolton with just one game to go. William Hill make the Rs 9/4 to go down with Bolton now favourites, along with 1/150 Blackburn, at 1/4 to be relegated. Hills are offering 10/1 that any side are relegated on Goal Difference.

Arsenal were let off the hook after drawing with Norwich on Saturday as both Newcastle and Tottenham failed to win and the Gunners are in pole position to finish in the top four at 1/16 with Spurs 1/6, Newcastle 4/1 and Chelsea 7/1.

“Another intriguing day in the Premier League has seen the battles at both ends of the table go down to the wire,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

William Hill Odds:

Relegation outright: 1/150 Blackburn; 1/4 Bolton; 9/4 QPR; 33/1 Wigan

To stay up: 1/200 Wigan; 1/3 QPR; 11/4 Bolton; 20/1 Blackburn

Top four finish: 1/16 Arsenal; 1/6Tottenham; 4/1 Newcastle; 7/1 Chelsea

Any side to be relegated on goal difference 10/1

1/16 Celtic Clinch The Title On Saturday

It’s been a long wait but it looks like the SPL
title will return to Celtic Park this weekend.
Celtic visit Rugby Park and only require a draw to
become Champions. Even if Celtic lose there
is still a chance the title will be theirs if Rangers
fail to win at St Mirren later that day. A defeat
for Celtic coupled with a Rangers win means they
they will need to wait another week and that’s a
7/1 chance

Celtic to Win the Title on Saturday 1/16
Celtic not to win the Title on Saturday 7/1

Rangers win at Fir Park last week puts them in
pole position to finish second in the SPL.

To Finish 2nd in SPL
Rangers 1/14
Motherwell 13/2

Hibernian have now opened a gap over Dunfermline
at the foot of the table and it leaves the Pars with
an uphill task to stay in the SPL.

To Finish Bottom of SPL
Hibernian 1/14
Dunfermline 13/2

Jon Daly currently tops the SPL goalscoring chart
and he aims to be the first non Old Firm player
to finish ahead of the pack since Tommy Coyne of
Motherwell in 1995.

Top SPL Goalscorer
Gary Hooper 4/5
Jon Daly 6/4
Francisco Sandaza 10/1
Anthony Stokes 16/1
Michael Higdon 33/1
Garry O’Connor 40/1

Bolton Boost Survival Hopes As Arsenal In Driving Position For London Bragging Rights

It was a busy day at the bottom of the Premier League table as both Bolton and Wigan pulled off victories. Despite their shock victory at Anfield, William Hill make Wigan 1/4 to be relegated come the end of the season, the same price as QPR. Another defeat for Terry Connor left Wolves adrift at the foot of the table and 1/7 with Hills for the drop. Bolton’s victory moved them up into 17th and they are 11/8 to go down with Blackburn 9/4. Hills think that the current bottom three are doomed, offering 10/11 that they are the three who are relegated. Liverpool’s home defeat to Wigan and their second consecutive defeat to bottom three opposition has left Kenny Dalglish 5/2 to no longer be in charge of Liverpool come the start of next season (2/7 to still be there).

“The victories for Wigan and Bolton have certainly condensed things at the bottom of the table and while there are only a couple of points separating Wolves and Blackburn, we think Terry Connor’s men are teetering on the brink and they may just rag QPR and Wigan with them,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Arsenal’s comfortable victory left them in pole position to grab third spot in the Premier League and William Hill make them 4/7 to finish as the top London club. Spurs are currently suffering a dismal run of form and they are 6/4 while Chelsea are 10/1.

Premier League:

Relegation: 1/7 Wolves; 1/4 Wigan; 1/4 QPR; 11/8 Bolton; 9/4 Blackburn; 20/1 BAR

Relegation trebles:
10/11 Wolves/Wigan/QPR
23/10 Wolves/Wigan/Bolton
7/2 Wolves/Wigan/Blackburn
3/1 Wigan/QPR/Bolton
9/2 Wigan/QPR/Blackburn
9/1 QPR/Bolton/Blackburn

Kenny Dalglish at Liverpool on the first day of next season: 2/7 yes; 5/2 no

Forecast without Manchester sides: 6/5 Arsenal/Spurs; 7/4 Tottenham/Arsenal; 6/1 Arsenal/Chelsea; 14/1 Chelsea/Arsenal; 16/1 Tottenham/Chelsea; 25/1 Chelsea/Tottenham;

Premier League without Manchester (top London club): 4/7Arsenal; 6/4 Tottenham; 10/1 Chelsea

All Chelsea Eyes Turn To Being Best Of The Rest

Andre Villas Boas insinuated that nothing less than a win would see Chelsea out of the running for the title and William Hill seem to agree offering 16/1 that Chelsea win the title behind Manchester City (8/13) and Manchester United (2/1). Villas-Boas is odds-on, however, at 1/3 to still be in charge of Chelsea for the first game of next season (9/4 not to be). Chelsea are in pole position to finish top of the sides excluding both Manchesters City and United at 11/8, just ahead of Tottenham at 13/8.

“If his post match talk were to be believed, Villas-Boas has already conceded defeat in his hunt for a Premier League title, but they still have a lot to play for and are in pole position to be the best of the rest,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Fernando Torres started the game once again on the bench and William Hill offer 11/2 that he leaves the club in January and 9/4 that he leaves in the summer. While Torres looked on, both Adebayor and Sturridge continued their rich vein of scoring form and they are 16/1 and 18/1 respectively to win the golden boot this year.

In the race to be next permanent Fulham manager, William Hill have reported the quietest day since opening the book. Sven Goran Eriksson is the 5/4 favourite, with Dave Jones 3/1 and Mark Hughes at 4/1.
