One Trophy Down, You Bet Many More To Follow For City

After a thrilling Community Shield match, William Hill make winners, Manchester City, the 6/5 favourites to win the Premier League while Chelsea are 5/1 third favourites behind Manchester United at 5/2. Manchester City are also 2/5 to finish higher than Chelsea in the league this season (7/4 not to). Manchester City are100/1 to win te quadruple this season (Premier League, Capital One Cup, FA Cup & Champions League).

“City were favourites for the Community Shield and they duly delivered and at the same time, sent out a warning to their rivals that they are the team to beat,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “They are our favourites to win the League as well and our punters certainly seem to agree with us with most of the pre-season money on City to do the business.”

Manchester City now have bragging rights over their title rivals and Hills think the pressure is already on Di Matteo, offering 11/10 that he is no longer Chelsea manager on the final day of the season and 14/1 that Pep Guardiola is leading the Blues at the end of the season.

Premier League winner: 6/5 Manchester City; 5/2 Manchester City; 5/1 Chelsea; 12/1 Arsenal; 16/1 Liverpool; 25/1 Tottenham; 150/1 BAR

Manchester City Trophies: 6/5 no trophies; 7/1 EPL/CL; 8/1 EPL/Capital One Cup; 8/1 EPL/FA Cup; 14/1 FA Cup/CL; 16/1 Capital One Cup/CL; 16/1 FA Cup/Capital One Cup; 33/1 EPL/Capital One Cup/CL; 40/1 EPL/FA Cup/Capital One Cup; 80/1 FA Cup/Capital One Cup/CL; 100/1 EPL/FA Cup/Capital One Cup/CL

Who will finish higher in the Premier League: City/Chelsea – 2/5 City 7/4 Chelsea

Roberto Di Matteo to last the season? Yes – 4/6 No – 11/10

Pep Guardiola to be Chelsea manager to be in charge of Chelsea for the final game of the season – ***MUST BE ON BENCH FOR FINAL GAME*** – 14/1

Roberto Mancini to be in charge of City for the last game of the season? – Yes 1/9 no – 5/1

As of 4.25 pm today William Hill have suspended their next Liverpool manager betting after the market was deemed to no longer be viable. “Even at 1/20 punters were looking to back Brendan Rodgers, which suggests that an announcement is imminent!” said Hill’s spokesman Ru8pert Adams.

Premiership Hail Hazard: Will He Be Managed By Matteo!

Following Eden Hazard decision to sign for Chelsea, William Hill offer 9/4 that the Belgian midfielder scores nine or more Premier League goals next season. He is also 80/1 to be the Premier League’s top goalscorer in 2012/13. Hazard is renowned for his ability to create as well as finish chances and Hills make him 11/4 to set up more than 20 goals.

Chelsea now have the most exciting young player in European football, but who will be managing him? Hills make Roberto Di Matteo the 4/6 favourite after winning two trophies in less than six months in charge. Pep Guardiola, despite assertions that he wants to take 12 months off, is 5/2 to take over, with Fabio Capello 3/1 and Harry Redknapp 5/1.

William Hill Odds:

Total Hazard Premier League Goals Next Season: 6/1 0-2; 2/1 3-5; 13/8 6-8; 9/4 9 or more

is 20/1 to retain it. ‘Winning the title doesn’t necessarilly mean Manager of the Year follows – being popular with your fellow bosses seems to be an important factor alongside trophies’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Terry And Ferdinand On Shakey Ground ?

WILL FERDINAND AND TERRY SHAKE HANDS?

William Hill offer odds of 1/ 2 that Anton Ferdinand and John Terry will NOT shake hands during the pre-match ceremony prior to the Chelsea- QPR Premier League game on Sunday. It is 6/4 that they WILL shake hands.

TERRY TO LIFT CHAMPIONS LEAGUE?

WILIAM HILL offer 20/1 that John Terry will be the first player to lift the Champions League trophy aloft if they win the Final. (Bets void if Chelsea don’t win).

CHELSEA 2/1 TO LOSE BOTH FINALS

WITH TWO major trophies to aim at, William Hill offer 2/1 that Chelsea fail to win either the Champions League and FA Cup; 8/11 that they win just ONE of the two, and 7/2 that they win both.
Hills also offer 8/15 that Chelsea WILL play in the Champions League next season, 11/8 that they will not.

MAC THE KNIFED? ONE ECK OF A GAMBLE

William Hill have cut their odds about Alex McLeish ceasing to be Villa boss by day one of next season from 9/2 to 9/4. He is 1/3 still to be in charge. Villa are 6/1 to go down.

Giggs 20/1 To Reach Four Figures…liverpool 4/9 For Barren 2012/13…torres Troubles

Ryan Giggs celebrated his 900th Manchester United appearance by scoring a goal and William Hill offer 20/1 that he reaches 1000 appearances. “Ryan will have to play for at least another three years in order to reach the 1000 games mark although the way that he has been playing recently suggests that the evergreen Giggs could easily do that,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Liverpool 4/9 For Barren 2012/13

Liverpool lifted the first silverware of the season on Sunday, when they won the Carling Cup and William Hill are offering 2/1 that they win one trophy next season and 8/1 they win two or more. They are 4/9 to win no silverware in the 2012/13 season. “There have been many people talking about Arsenal’s barren seasons but Liverpool, until Sunday, had suffered a similar streak and winning the League Cup is unlikely to paper over the cracks and they will really have their work cut out in order to follow it up next season,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Liverpool are the 5/2 joint favourites to win the FA Cup with Spurs and are 10/3 to finish in the top four in the Premier League, undoubtedly a top target for Kenny Dalglish. Liverpool are 7/1 to win the League Cup next season.

Torres Troubles

Fernando Torres has been suffering in the goals department since joining Chelsea and he has finally been dropped from the Spain squad. Hills are offering 6/4 that he fails to go to Euro 2012 (1/2 to make it). Torres is 13/8 to have left Chelsea by the start of next season (4/9 to still be there).

Torres to make the Spain Euro 2012 squad
Yes – 1/2
No – 6/4

Torres to score at Euro 2012
6/4
Bets are losers if doesn’t make squad or doesn’t get playing minutes.

Torres to leave Chelsea by first game of 2012/13 season:
Yes – 13/8
No – 4/9

Liverpool Season 2012/13 Trophies
