Hodgson’s Hero: Fit Again Bent 4/1 To Make Euros…hill’s Predict Fantastic Prem Finale


Darren Bent has been declared fit for the Euros and William Hill make the Villa man 4/1 to make Roy Hodgson’s 23 man squad (1/7 not to).

“In his pomp, Darren Bent is one of the best natural finishers in world football, although whether Hodgson will risk taking a player who has barely turned out for his club in 2012 remains to be seen,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Bent is 25/1 to secure the Euros Golden Boot, with Wayne Rooney at the same price and Danny Welbeck, Daniel Sturridge and Steven Gerrard at 33/1.


With the title, top four and relegation all to be decided on the final day of the season, William Hill have opened a market on which teams will fill the all important spots in the table. They offer 5/4 that City win the League, Arsenal grab the last definite Champions League spot (in third), and Bolton are the unlucky side who are relegated.

“This Premier League season has been nip and tuck from day one and it seems only fitting that there should be so much up for grabs on the final day,” said Crilly.

Will Darren Bent make the England Euros Squad: 4/1 yes; 1/7 no

To win the Premier League, Finish Third and be Relegated:

5/4 Man City; Arsenal; Bolton
10/3 Man City Tottenham; Bolton
7/2 Man City; Arsenal; QPR
8/1 Man City; Tottenham; QPR
9/1 Man Utd; Arsenal; Bolton
18/1 Man Utd; Tottenham; Bolton;
50/1 Man City; Newcastle; Bolton
100/1 Man City; Newcastle; QPR
200/1 Man Utd; Newcastle; Bolton

Wales Lengthened As England Are Baled Out…has Jack The Lad Spelled The End For Lamps?

Following the news that Gareth Bale has pulled out of the Wales squad to face England, William Hill have shortened England, from 4/9 to 2/5, to win the match at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday. Wales are now 15/2, having been 6/1, while the draw is 10/3.

“It goes to show how important a player Gareth Bale is for Wales. Not even Ryan Giggs in his pomp withdrawing from the squad would have affected the odds this much,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Jack Wilshere looks set to start ahead of Frank Lampard in the Wales game but Hills feel that this is just a small blip and have Lamps as the 11/10 favourite to start more Euro 2012 qualifiers than either Steven Gerrard or Jack Wilshere. Hills also offer 5/4 that he plays all five of England’s remaining Euro qualifiers.

“There has been a great deal of discussion over the years about accommodating both Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard in the centre of midfield, but the odds appear to suggest that the experiment will continue until at least the start of Euro 2012,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

William Hill Wales / England Odds:

90 Minutes: 15/2 Wales; 2/5 England; 10/3 Draw

How Many More Euro Qualifying Games Will Frank Lampard Start: 10/1 None; 20/1 One; 16/1 Two; 7/2 Three; 2/1 Four; 5/4 All Five

Who Will Start More Qualifying Games In 2011: 11/10 Frank Lampard; 5/4 Gerrard; 4/1 Jack Wilshere

Frank Lampard To Quit International Football In 2011: 7/2 Yes; 1/6 No

Matt Jarvis To Play Any Part In Euro 2011 Qualification: 8/11 Yes; 1/1 No

David Beckham To Play Any Part In Euro 2011 Qualification: 9/4 Yes; 1/3 No

Hart Still In Pomp As Ton Up County Head For Title ?


WITH THE Portsmouth takeover situation beginning to become a little clearer, William Hill have seen a flurry of support for Pompey boss Paul Hart to be the first manager to lose his job in the Premiership this season, and have cut his odds from 4/1 to 7/4 favourite.
‘Bets of £300 and £400 have gone on Hart to be the first out since the takeover appeared to have gone through, and some punters clearly believe that new owner means imminent new manager’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills make Phil Brown 3/1 second favourite to go first and also offer 5/1 Rafa Benitez; 10 Alex McLeish and Gary Megson; 11 David Moyes; 14 Mark Hughes; Gianfranco Zola; 20 Martin O’Neill.


A William Hill punter from Shrewbury has staked £750 at odds of 10/1 on Notts County to amass 100 points and 100 goals in League Two this season.’County have been flying in most of their early matches, but the defeat by Chesterfield suggests that it may not be plain sailing all the way this season’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe, ‘However, this bet is typical of the interest we have been seeing for Sven’s side to canter to the title’.
Hills make County 11/10 favourites to win League Two, with Rotherham at 8/1; Bournemouth 12/1; Chesterfield and Crewe both 14/1.
