Deutsche To Bank Gutsy Punter Over £100,000 Euro Bonus

A German national strolled into a William Hill shop in central London on Tuesday afternoon and placed £41,000 on his home country winning this year’s Euros at 13/8. It is believed that he was on a business trip in London and he said that this was his first ever wager– which if it cops will scoop the gutsy chap a staggering £107,625. The price has been shortened from 13/8 to 6/4 and makes Germany the stand alone favourites ahead of Spain at 7/4 and Italy and Portugal both 11/2.

“It is believed that the German gent was on a business trip in London and to our knowledge, he has never placed a bet before in his life,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Amazingly his is the biggest single wager that we have taken over the course of this year’s Euros.’

8/1 England Do Not Win A Shootout For At Least 10 Years

AGAIN England were beaten in a penalty shootout and William Hill are now betting on when they will actually win one and they are 8/1 to fail to win one until after Euro 2020.

“The hopes of a nation have once again been dashed from 12 yards and it is impossible to ever see England winning a shootout,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

On the plus side for William Hill, England’s exit has eliminated a £1m plus liability.

ENGLAND are 14/1 to win the World Cup in Brazil in 2014.

Euro 2012 winner: 13/8 Spain; 13/8 Germany; 11/2 Portugal; 11/2 Italy

When will England next win a penalty shootout: 2/1 WC 2014; 5/2 Euro 2016; 5/1 WC 2018; 7/1 Euro 2020; 8/1 After Euro 2020

66/1 For Germany To Win The Euros…let’s Just Hope For Clean Sheets

Germany are 5/2 favourites to win the European Championships and with their price being backed all the time, it will only get shorter. Having won their opening game 1-0 against Portugal, Germany are now 66/1 to win the tournament without conceding a goal.

“There may be a few punters who will be kicking themselves because they did not manage to grab any of the 5/1 that we offered a couple of months before the tournament started, but they now have the opportunity to back a relatively realistic 66/1 shot,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Germany take on Holland on Wednesday and Hills make them 6/4 slight favourites, with Holland 19/10 and the draw 21/10.

Cristiano Ronaldo flattered to deceive somewhat in Portugal’s first game at the Euros, but Hills think that he could spark to life against Denmark and is 3/1 to score more goals than the Danes in their match on Tuesday.

Group B – Winner: 1/3 Germany; 9/2 Denmark; 8/1 Holland; 14/1 Portugal

Group B – To qualify (not qualify): 1/16 Germany (7/1); 10/11 Denmark (10/11); 7/4 Portugal (2/5); 9/4 Holland (1/3)

66/1 Germany to win Euros without conceding a goal

Goals match bet: 3/1 Ronaldo; 13/8 Denmark; 10/11 Draw
