PUNTERS PICKS FOR TITLE/RELEGATION
PUNTERS TIP LIVERPOOL FOR THE TITLE BLACKBURN , NEWCASTLE AND VILLA FOR DROP
William Hill have analysed bets struck on the Premier League title and relegation races so far, and discovered that Liverpool have accounted for almost 40% of bets struck so far on the title, and Blackburn Rovers have attracted the greatest percentage of relegation bets taken thus far 20.43%.
The two lists derived from bets struck online, although they are closely mirrored by our shop bets- show an intriguing and striking convergence from the betting odds Liverpool are only 10/1 fifth favourites for the title in our outright odds, while Blackburn are 3/1 sixth favourites for the drop Villa, third best backed to go down, are actually joint seventh favourites to win the title, while Norwich, 7th best backed for the title are second favourites to be relegated! said Hills spokesman Graham Sharpe.
It will be fascinating to look back with hindsight, and see whether the bookies or the punters have got it right.

BEGINNING OF END FOR ARSENE?
ARSENE WENGER has been cut from 33/1 to 10/1 joint fourth favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his club as he appeared to be facing the loss of both Fabregas and Nasri from his squad. Hills make him 1/6 to see out of the season, 7/2 not to. Should the Gunners get off to a slow start pressure will mount inexorably on Arsene Wenger, in which circumstances it is not impossible to envisage an end to his reign at Arsenal. Said Hills spokesman Graham Sharpe.
