Brave(?) Punter Backs Liverpool To The Tune Of £44,000

William Hill took their biggest pre-season bet so far as one gutsy punter in Liverpool put down £44,000 on his side to win the league (£22,000 e/w). The man, in his mid thirties and a Liverpool fan, backed his side at 25/1 and William Hill have now cut their odds to 16/1 for them to win the title. Should Liverpool win the League he will scoop £777,333.33 and should they finish second, he will pick up £205,333.33.

“The football has gone largely unnoticed while the Olympics has been going on although there has been a steady stream of bets on Liverpool winning the title, mainly from the North West,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “There has not been that much movement in or out of Anfield this summer but despite this, Liverpool now constitute around 40% of all stakes that we have taken on the Premier League winner market.”

English 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

BLACKPOOL TITLE ODDS SLASHED

William Hill have slashed Blackpool’s Premier League title odds by a record EIGHT THOUSAND points after cutting them from a pre-season 10,000/1 to 2000/1. ‘So many Blackpool fans have placed small money bets on their side winning the title that we face a record £5million+ loss if they were to do it – so their 4-0 win was bad news for us!’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
However, Hills have make Chelsea 13/8 title favourites and also offer 9/4 Man U; 5 Man C; 6 Arsenal; 14 Liverpool; 28 Spurs; 125 Everton; 150 Villa.

City 5/4 To Outdo United

YOU BET CITY CAN OUTDO UNITED THIS SEASON….

WITH MANCHESTER CITY already flexing their financial muscle, William Hill make them 8/13 to finish in the top four next season and 6/5 not to – while they are just 5/1 to win the Premier League title. ‘City never looked like winning the title last season, but punters are already taking note of their early spending spree and we are now starting to see support coming in for them – we took 86 internet title bets for City, and a Manchester shop bet of £300 after the news of Yaya Toure’s signing was released’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe. ‘They are 5/1 third favourites at the moment and it is not impossible that they could overtake second favourites United if they keep on spending’

Hills make City 5/4 to finish above bitter rivals United, who are 4/7 to do vice versa, this season.
