Premier League Is Back And Punters Cannot Wait!!!!!

Manchester City are the best backed side to win the Premier League with William Hill and the current Champions are 6/5 with Manchester United attracting only slight interest despite their large investment over the summer. The biggest bet that Hills have taken on the Premier League is for Liverpool, where a shop punter placed £22,000 e/w on the Reds lifting the trophy at 25/1.

“Despite the fact that we’ve had a busy sporting summer, turnover on our antepost football markets has increased quite markedly,” said Hill’ spokesman Joe Crilly. “We were offering top price on every single side to win the Premier League which proved incredibly popular and also shows that despite the glitz and glamour of the Euros and the Olympics, the Premier League remains the number one sporting event in the UK.”

After last season’s nail biting finale to the season, William Hill are offering 100/1 that the destination of the Premier League trophy is decided in added time of the final match of the season. Hills also have a number of other specials including 16/1 for any goalkeeper to score a goal this season, while 3/1 is available for all three promoted sides to stay up.

Nigel Adkins is the 7/2 favourite to lose the managerial sack race at 7/2, backed in pre-season from 20/1.

O’neill To Be Bruce’s Replacement? Carling Cup Specials…

Steve Bruce’s days appear numbered at Sunderland and the William Hill sack race betting remains suspended for the foreseeable future. Hills are betting on who will be next through the doors at the Stadium of Light. Martin O’Neill is the 5/4 favourite while former Liverpool boss, Rafa Benitez, is 6/1. Former Sunderland player and current Huddersfield boss, Lee Clark is third favourite at 9/1.

“Martin O’Neill is linked to almost every high profile job in English football but appears to have been biding his time until the right offer comes along,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “The odds would suggest that were Sunderland to come calling, he might make his much anticipated return to Premier League management.”

William Hill make the game between Manchester United and Crystal Palace the 11/8 favourite to be the highest scoring Carling Cup Quarter Final game with the tie between Arsenal and Manchester City the 9/4 second favourite. United are 13/8 favourites to be the top scorers during the week and 11/4 to score the fastest goal.

Next Sunderland Manager: 5/4 Martin O’Neill; 6/1 Rafa Benitez; 9/1 Lee Clark; 10/1 Mark Hughes; 14/1 Bob Bradley; 16/1 Dave Jones; 16/1 Steve McLaren; 16/1 Carlo Ancelotti; 16/1 Ole Gunnar Solksjaer; 16/1 Stuart Pearce; 20/1 Alan Curbishley; 20/1 Sean O’Driscoll; 20/1 Gareth Southgate; 25/1 David Moyes; 25/1 Glenn Hoddle; 25/1 Sven Goran-Eriksson; 33/1 Gianfranco Zola; 33/1 Peter Reid; 33/1 Roy Keane…others on request

YOU BET MARTINEZ IS UNSACKABLE!

DESPITE Wigan’s freefall to the bottom of the Premier League,William Hill make him only 11/4 third favourite to be the next boss to leave his club- and offer 6/4 that he will still be in charge on the first day of next season.’Given the loyalty Martinez showed when refusing to go to Villa, it is almost impossible to imagine old-school Wigan supremo Dave Whelan sacking Martinez’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
‘That makes it tough to price him up in the sack race – although it is not out of the question that his own pride would cause him to walk away if things did not continue. We reckon he is 6/4 to survive in the job until the start of next season, but 1/ 2 that he will have left by then’.

CITY are now 10/11 title favs with Hills who also go 7/4 United; 13/2 Chelsea; 25 Arsenal; 40 Spurs;50 Liverpool; 250 Newcastle.’We have had to cut the four-timer odds with City fans lumping on their side to stay unbeaten and to win everything, sending our liabilities soaring. It is difficult to see their unbeaten run coming to an end for some while’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Hills OFFER 11/10 CITY WIN TITLE WITH UNITED 2ND, 2/1 VICE VERSA.

TOP 4 FINISH…1/7 Chelsea; 5/6 Spurs; 5/4 Arsenal; 13/8 Liverpool; 14 Newcastle; 80 Aston Villa; Everton.

They have a tricky run of fixtures now and Hills make them 1/3 to lose their next game against Man City. They are 10/3 for their first defeat to come against Manchester United ad 14/1 Chelsea. They are 14/1 to avoid defeat in all three of these games.

Championship Sack Race Hots Up: Sven Odds On To Go Before Mclaren

With the Championship season set to kick off this weekend, Hills are offering a brand new market on the Manager Sack Race. The Championship is home to a number of high profile managers this year and the market is expected to be incredibly competitive with Coventry manager, Andy Thorn, the 6/1 favourite to be the first manager to leave his club. Keith Millen and Sean Dyche round off the top three at 7/1. With two former England managers plying their trade in the division, Hills offer 14/1 that Steve McLaren is the first manager to go, while Sven Goran Eriksson is 16/1 although Sven is 8/11 to be out of a job before the Wally with the Brolly.

“This year’s Championship is expected to be one of the closest ever with a number of high profile managers in charge of high profile clubs. Not all of them will be able to live up to expectations and the managers’ sack race could potentially be quite a volatile market,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

First Championship manager to leave his job: 6/1 Andy Thorn; 7/1 Keith Millen; 7/1 Sean Dyche; 8/1 Nigel Clough; 9/1 Chris Hughton; 9/1 Ian Holloway; 10/1 Sean O’Driscoll; 10/1 Steve Cotterill; 12/1 Tony Mowbray; 14/1 Steve McLaren; 16/1 Darren Ferguson; 16/1 Sven Goran Eriksson; 16/1 Simon Grayson; 16/1 Dougie Freedman; 16/1 Eddie Howe; 16/1 Paul Jewell; 20/1 Nigel Pearson; 20/1 Brian McDermott; 20/1 Keith Hill; 20/1 Nigel Adkins; 20/1 Sam Allardyce; 20/1 Gus Poyet; 20/1 Kenny Jackett; 20/1 Malky Mackay

New Spl Season…latest Odds

The start of the new Scottish Premier League is upon us and William Hill cannot split the Old Firm clubs offering 5/6 for both sides to win this year’s SPL title. Hearts appear to be in pole position for the ‘best of the rest’ honours offered at 5/4 in the SPL without Old Firm sides followed by Dundee Utd at 10/30. At the other end of the table, newly promoted Dunfermline are the 5/2 favourites to finish bottom of the league with St Mirren 3/1.

Rangers striker Nickica Jelavic is the 3/1 joint favourite to win the SPL golden boot with Gary Hooper, with Celtic’s Anthony Stokes and Dundee Utd’s David Goodwillie 8/1.

There is a three way tie at the top of the SPL sack race, with Hearts’ Jim Jeffries, St Johnstone’s Derek McInnes and Kilmarnock’s Kenny Shiels all seemingly in the firing line as 4/1 joint favourites.

“The football season kicks off early this season, easing the anguish of a tournament free summer and we have a number of bets to keep every SPL punter involved until the final day,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Whatever happens, England need to score and Daniel Sturridge, one of only a few small bright spots in England’s team, is 11/2 to open the scoring in the match, while Danny Welbeck is 13/2.

“England have so far been underwhelming in the tournament and it may be down to Daniel Sturridge or Danny Welbeck to fire them into the semi finals,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Although the odds suggest that England will be packing their bags after Sunday’s game.”

Stuart Pearce is offered at 3/1 with Hills to become the Team GB manager at next year’s Olympics.
