Rangers 7/2 To Be Perfect At Home

This weekend Rangers play their first home game in the fourth tier and William Hill go 7/2 that they win every home game this term and 6/4 that they stay unbeaten home and away in the league. Rangers are 15/8 to win against East Stirling with a -3 handicap.

“Rangers will want to put on a good show after a sorry summer for the club. They should take confidence from last weekend’s late equaliser to really show the fans they are up for this fight,” said William Hill spokesman Mark Young

Celtic travel to Ross County this weekend and are 4/9 for the victory. The last three games between the two clubs have produced 2-0 score lines on every occasion, one for Celtic and one for County. For either team to win 2-0 is 9/2. With both teams scoring in six of their last seven meetings, Hearts and Inverness are Even money to both score on Saturday.

Kilmarnock and Motherwell is not a fixture that produces many goals as only three of the last eight meetings have produced more than one goal. It is 21/10 that there is one or less goals this weekend. Aberdeen always seem to do well against St Johnstone, where they are travelling on Saturday, unbeaten in their last four visits. Aberdeen are 6/4 draw no bet.

The Dundee derby should produce some fireworks but Dundee are yet to score in the SPL this term. Dundee United are 13/10 to win to nil. Kenny McLean is on fire for St Mirren and for him to score anytime and the Saints to win is 17/2.

Gb Girls Show Samba Stars How It’s Done

Hope Powell’s GB women pulled off a magnificent 1-0 victory against Brazil ensuring a quarter final with Canada on Friday. USA are 5/4 favourites for gold but GB are only just behind them at 7/2 with William Hill having been as long as 20/1 at the start of the tournament. Brazil and Japan are 11/2.

GB have now won all three games and go into the last eight with a real chance of glory. Canada sneaked into the one of the best third place qualification spots and are 13/5 to cause an upset against the hosts. GB are 4/5 for the win. Brazil are 5/4 to beat world champions Japan who are 7/4 in what, on paper looks the tie of the round.

“The record attendance for a GB women’s football match was broken at Wembley last night and the longer these girls go on the more support they will receive. Hope Powell has them well drilled and they are now well in with a chance for a medal spot at least,” said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.

Women’s Olympic Football Gold Medal Winner: 5/4 USA, 7/2 Team GB, 11/2 Brazil, 11/2 Japan, 8/1 France, 12/1 Sweden, 33/1 Canada, 66/1 New Zealand

You Bet It’s Time To Drop The Flops

Of the players that started for England on Sunday night, there were a number of players who have been the mainstay of England’s underperforming side for the last 10 years or so. William Hill are now offering just 9/1 that Hodgson drops at least eight of those for their first match of the World Cup qualifiers. He is 6/5 to remain relatively loyal to his quarter final players with 6/5 offered for eight or nine of them to start vs Moldova.

England did show sporadic flashes of ability during the Euros, although all too infrequent and all eyes now turn to the World Cup qualifying. With a supposedly “easy” group, England are 1/5 to qualify and 4/9 to top the group. With England still unbeaten under Roy Hodgson (not counting penalties), Hills are 5/2 to qualify for the World Cup in Brazil without losing a game. Once there Hills do not think that they have much hope of winning the tournament and they are 20/1 to lift the Jules Rimet in two year’s time – the biggest price they have ever been for a World Cup.

“England hardly impressed during the tournament, but at the same time, showed a new found resilience. A bit of tinkering from Roy could produce a winning formula for the qualifiers and we think they will breeze through to Brazil,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

The Euros take pause for a few days as the semi finals loom on the horizon and William Hill are taking stock on what has been a torrid tournament for the bookies so far. “Not even England’s exit has given us any cheer,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Before last night, we had gone 14 games without a draw and when that happens, we are always going to take a bit of a kicking. On the plus side though, we have two fantastic semi finals in the pipeline and we reckon that turnover for the last three games could approach £10m for us alone.”

William Hill Semi Finals:
7/2 Portugal; 10/11 Spain; 11/5 draw
5/6 Germany; 19/5 Italy; 11/5 Draw

Winner: 13/8 Spain; 13/8 Germany; 11/2 Portugal; 11/2 Italy

England World Cup Qualifiers:
1/5 Qualify (10/3 not to)
4/9 Top the group (13/8 not to)
5/2 Qualify without losing a group game (2/7 not to)

How many of England’s starting XI vs Italy will start vs Moldova (7/9/12): 9/1 0-3; 2/1 4-7; 6/5 8-9; 9/4 10-11

England World Cup 2014 winner: 20/1

You Bet England Can Hold On To Ball And Hit The Target

Under Roy Hodgson, England have not yet managed to achieve over 50% possession in three games, but William Hill think that could all change against Sweden on Friday. The firm make the Three Lions 8/11 to have 50% possession or more during the match (Evens that they do not). Against France, England had just one shot on target, but again, Hills think that they will better that against a somewhat weaker Sweden team. It is 5/6 for England to have 7 or more shots on target during the game (with the same price offered for fewer than seven).

“Hodgson has claimed that he does not pay much credence to statistics but we are sure that he will be acutely aware of the fact that England need to improve in the attacking third and we think that he will set England up in such a way to do so,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

England are 11/10 to win their game against Sweden and with Danny Welbeck expected to start again for Hodgson’s side, he is 6/1 to open the scoring.

The early kick off in Group D sees the Ukraine take on France and Andriy SheVChenko is 11/1 to bag another two goals or more in the match. France are 11/10 to win, while the home side are 5/2.

11/4 Sweden; 11/10 England; 21/10 Draw

First Scorer: 6/1 Danny Welbeck; 13/2 Andy Carroll; 7/1 Ashley Young; 15/2 Jermain Defoe; 8/1 Zlatan Ibrahimovic; 9/1 Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain; 9/1 Theo Walcott; 10/1 BAR

England possession vs Sweden: 8/11 over 49.5%; 1/1 under 49.5%

England shots on target vs Sweden: 5/6 over 6.5; 5/6 under 6.5

Man of the Match (Sweden vs England): 6/1 Steven Gerrard; 6/1 Zlatan Ibrahimovic; 7/1 Ashley Young; 7/1 Danny Welbeck; 8/1 Andy Carroll; 10/1 Ola Toivonen; 10/1 Markus Rosenberg; 11/1 Alex Oxlade Chamberlain; 12/1 BAR

Euros Latest: Shevchenko 10/1 For Golden Boot

Euro co-hosts, Ukraine went top of Group D after an Andriy SheVChenko brace and William Hill make them 4/6 to qualify from the group and 4/1 to win it. SheVChenko is 10/1 to bag the golden boot.

“SheVChenko is a national hero in the Ukraine and even more so now,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Just imagine what it would be like if he ended the tournament with the golden boot.”

England drew with France and given the way in which the Three Lions have set up in Roy Hodgson’s first three games, they could all be tight affairs and they are 14/1 to remain unbeaten but to go out at the group stages.

14/1 – England to go unbeaten but fail to qualify

Group D winner: 6/4 France; 7/4 England; 4/1 Ukraine; 11/2 Sweden

Golden boot: 5/1 Mario Gomez; 8/1 Alan Dzagoev; 10/1 Zlatan Ibrahimovic; 10/1 Andriy Shevhenko; 12/1 Karim Benzema; 14/1 Antonio Di Natale; 14/1 Mario Mandzukic; 16/1 BAR

Tournament winner: 5/2 Germany; 3/1 Spain; 9/1 France; 10/1 Italy; 12/1 Holland; 12/1 England; 12/1 Russia; 20/1 Portugal; 25/1 Croatia; 401Ukraine; 40/1 Denmark; 50/1 Poland; 100/1 Czech Republic; 100/1 Sweden; 100/1 Greece; 250/1 Republic of Ireland

To qualify from the group (not to): 4/9 France (13/8) ; 8/15 England (11/8); 4/6 Ukraine (11/10); 9/2 Sweden (1/8)

Chelsea’s Captain Fantastic (not Terry) 14/1 For England Armband

FRANK LAMPARD captained 10 man Chelsea to the Champions League Final against Barcelona and William Hill make him 14/1 to wear the armband for England’s first game of the European Championships. However, Steven Gerrard and Scott Parker are the 5/4 joint favourites for the captaincy.

Harry Redknapp is the 1/4 red hot favourite to be named as the next permanent England manager but it is less clear when the FA will announce the appointment of their chosen man. William Hill make it 1/3 that the new manager will take his first press conference between the end of the Premier League and England’s first game at the Euros.

“Redknapp is the red hot favourite for the England job as far as our punters are concerned but no one quite knows when the appointment will be made,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

CHELSEA fantastically drew with Barcelona with ten men and William Hill make the Blues 7/4 to lift the trophy. With John Terry getting sent off and going 2-0 down, the Blues were as long as 20/1 to qualify from the tie. The mastermind behind the victory, Roberto Di Matteo, is in to 4/5 from 7/4 to become the next permanent Chelsea boss. Chelsea will be up against it in the Final having four players ruled out by suspension but Hills make Michael Essien 1/2, Bosingwa 1/5 and Torres 2/1 to start in Munich.

BARCELONA have now failed to win three games in a row, almost unheard of and Hills make Guardiola 5/6 to have left his position by the time the 2012/13 season kicks off.

ASTON VILLA lost on Tuesday to Bolton and William Hill make Alex McLeish 9/2 to have left Villa Park by the start of next season.

Who will captain England for the first game of the European Championships: 5/4 Steven Gerrard; 5/4 Scott Parker; 8/1 Joe Hart; 14/1 Frank Lampard; 33/1 Rio Ferdinand; 33/1 Gareth Barry
*If captain for this game is John Terry then all bets are void

When will Fabio Capello’s permanent replacement have their first official press conference as England manager: 10/3 before the end of the Premier League season; 1/3 between the end of the Premier League season and England’s first game; 20/1 during Euro 2012; 9/2 after Euro 2012

Chelsea players to be there next season:

Lampard: 4/7 yes; 5/4 no
Drogba: 11/10 yes; 4/6 no
Terry: 1/5 yes; 10/3 no
A Cole: 1/7 yes; 4/1 no
Torres: 8/15 yes; 11/8 no

Chelsea players to start the Champions League Final:

Essien: 8/11 yes; Evs no
Torres: 2/1 yes; 4/11 no
Malouda: 2/1 yes; 4/11 no
Sturridge 5/2 yes; 2/7 no
Bosingwa: 1/5 yes; 10/3 no
Drogba: 1/3 yes; 9/4 no

Will Guardiola be at Barca at the start of next season: 5/6 yes; 5/6 no

Who will name the England Euros squad: 13/8 Stuart Pearce; 4/9 someone else

Alex McLeish manager of Villa on the first day of next season: 1/8 yes; 9/2 no

Carling Cup Specials…when Will Carroll Score?

Manchester City face Liverpool in the Carling Cup with a one goal deficit and William Hill make them 2/1 to qualify for the final, Liverpool are 2/5 and in the driving seat. The only goal at the Etihad was a penalty scored by Steven Gerrard and Hills offer 3/1 that a penalty is awarded during the match. Manchester City are 7/1 to win after extra time while Liverpool are 14/1. After winning their match against Spurs in added time on Sunday, Hills offer 16/1 that an injury time goal settles the tie.

“The previous match between these two was hardly a classic and both sides will want to avoid any early mistakes,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “It is quite possible that this one could go down to the wire.”

Andy Carroll and Edin Dzeko are struggling for goals at the moment and William Hill are offering 12/5 that either one of the misfiring strikers nets the first goal, while 6/1 is available for them both to find the net at anytime during the match. Andy Carroll has scored just the one goal since Luis Suarez started his ban and William Hill offer 11/8 that he fails to score in the remaining three matches of Suarez’s absence. He is 5/4 to score one, 7/2 two, 8/1 three and 10/1 four or more.

500/1 United Pointless In Prem During January

United 11/10 NOT to beat City this season as:

With Manchester United- who are 2/5 with William Hill to win no trophies this season – currently pointless in the Premier League in January, Hills have opened a book on how many points they will collect during the month, in which they have three more scheduled games – and offer 11/4 that they get nine by winning all three.
But Hills are also betting on how many more consecutive competitive game defeats United will add to their current two – and offer 500/1 that they will lose all of their next three. ‘This could be a pivotal point in United’s season, and possibly Fergie’s future’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Share, as they trimmed their odds for the United boss to be the next manager to leave his job from 66/1 to 50/1. He is 5/2 not to be manager on the first day of next season.
AND Hills, WHO MAKE CITY 4/6 TO ELIMINATE UNITED (UTD 11/10 TO GO THROUGH) FROM THE FA CUP, ARE ALSO QUOTING ODDS OF 11/10 THAT UNITED WILL FAIL TO BEAT CITY THIS SEASON. ‘They have to play again in the League, they meet in the FA Cup and could be drawn together in the Europa League’ said Sharpe.

Without A Win For Three Games, Chelsea 8/1 Not To Win Any Of Next Three

William Hill are betting on when winless-in-three Chelsea will next manage to come out on top in a match – and make them 8/1 not to do so in their next three games. ‘Chelsea currently face a mini crisis, but if they can’t win any of their next three it will become a full blown crisis’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills HAVE CUT THEIR ODDS FOR VILLAS-BOAS TO BE GONE BY 1ST GAME OF NEXT SEASON FROM 9/4 TO 7/4 – HE IS 2/5 STILL TO BE THERE.’Chelsea managers generally have a short shelf life if they don’t produce a trophy-winning season’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe. Chelsea are 2/7 with Hills to win none of the four major trophies this season.

When Will Chelsea Next Win?
Blackburn (Away)4/9
Liverpool (Home)7/2
Bayer Leverkusen (Away)9/1
None Of These Games………..8/1

If John Terry Starts Against Blackburn Will He Finish The Game? Yes 1/10……No 11/2

William Hill offer 6/5 that Carlos Tevez will start a competitive match for Man C before the end of the January transfer window, and 6/5 that he will not. ‘Mancini seems to be hinting that there could be a reconciliation, but how that would go down with fans remains to be seen’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
