William Hill Offer Season Long Betting For Fans Of Every Team

While most fans of Premier League teams may not realistically be able to back their side to win the league or even avoid relegation, William Hill are ensuring that they will have the option to back their side to improve upon last season’s performances. Not only can they back their side to finish higher than last season, they can also back the side to finish lower, or in the same position.

“As a fan of Fulham for example, you are not realistically going to be able to back your side to win the league while at the same time the price that you will get for your side to stay up is incredibly short,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “We are enabling every fan to have a positive (as well as a negative and a neutral) bet on their side depending on how they think the season will pan out.”

How will your side fare in 2012/13?

Opening Day Thumpings Could See Early Managerial Changes

Mark Hughes, Chris Hughton and Brendan Rodgers all suffered heavy opening day defeats and William Hill offer 9/1 that two or three of them have gone before Christmas, 7/4 one of them has and 8/15 that none of them have . Another side struggling to adjust to the new season was Arsenal as they started life without Robin van Persie and William Hill make the Gunners 8/11 to score before their former striker does (Evens they do not).

“There were certainly a few sides who looked as though they were still on their holidays and their managers will have to turn things around quickly otherwise they could find themselves out of a job before the year is out,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

How many of Hughes, Hughton and Rodgers gone by Christmas: 8/15 none; 7/4 one; 9/1 two or three

Who will score first: 8/11 Arsenal; Evens Robin van Persie

Pardew Loses His Rag And Loses Punters Their Red Card Dough

Alan Pardew became the first Premier League manager sent to the stands and not one William Hill punter backed the Newcastle boss to see red which was offered at 16/1. The most popular selection was 6/1 favourite, Mark Hughes, who, despite his sides poor performance and the warm summer weather managed to remain relatively cool.

Mark Hughes is now the 10/1 favourite to be the next manager to be sent to the stands with David Moyes and Paul Lambert 11/1. Pardew has been cut slightly after his indiscretion to 14/1.

“Alan Pardew’s momentary loss of control will have everyone talking although the odds would suggest that he may well have learnt his lesson,” said Hill’ spokesman Joe Crilly.

Jermain Defoe scored for Spurs, but it was not enough to save his Spurs side from defeat and William Hill offer 11/8 that Emmanuel Adebayor arrives at Spurs before the end of the transfer window.

Next manager to be sent to the stands: 10/1 Mark Hughes; 11/1 David Moyes; 11/1 Paul Lambert; 12/1 Adre Villas Boas; 12/1 Martin O’Neill; 12/1 Roberto Mancini; 12/1 Sam Allardyce; 12/1 Tony Pulis; 12/1Arsene Wenger; 14/1 Alan Pardew; 16/1 Chris Hughton; 16/1 Martin Jol; 16/1 Michael Laudrup; 16/1 Nigel Adkins; 16/1 Steve Clarke; 20/1 Brendan Rodgers; 20/1 Brian McDermott; 20/1 Roberto Di Matteo; 20/1 Alex Ferguson; 25/1 Roberto Martinez

Jermain Defoe Premier League goals: 9/4 1-6; 6/4 7-12; 13/8 13-18; 10/1 19 or more

Adebayor to sign for Spurs before the end of the transfer window: 11/8 yes; 8/15 no

You Bet Rvp Will Make It Rip For Efc

Robin van Persie looks set to make his Manchester United debut as his new team travel to Goodison and William offer 2/1 that he scores more than the whole Everton team put together. Everton are 11/8 to score more than RVP and they are 13/8 to tie. Van Persie is the 4/1 favourite to score the first goal and has been really well backed at Hills to do so, while former Blue, Wayne Rooney, is the 9/2 second favourite. Everton’s Nikica Jelavic is 7/1.

After his former club failed to find the net on Saturday, William Hill offer 8/11 that Arsenal manage to register a goal in the Premier League before van Persie does.

“There are many who think that van Persie has a lot to prove after only really having one full season at Arsenal and he will want to get off to a scoring start and our punters are really backing him to do so,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

The match at Goodison is notable every year for the fact that it sees Wayne Rooney return to his former club and Hills are offering a market on what the United talisman will do first. He is 15/8 to get a goal, 9/4 to be substituted and the same price to complete the game. He is 3/1 to receive a yellow card before anything else in the game and 40/1 to see a straight red.

Manchester United are odd on at 10/11 to get their season off to a winning start, with Everton 10/3 and the draw 23/10.

Despite their opening day defeat, William Hill still think that Liverpool will finish above their local rivals, Everton – offering 4/9 that they do so (13/8 they do not).

Liverpool/Everton season match bet: 13/8 Everton; 4/9 Liverpool

RVP vs Everton goals match bet (20/08/12): 2/1 RVP; 13/8 Tie; 11/8 Everton

What will Rooney do first: 15/8 score; 9/4 be substituted; 9/4 3/1 receive yellow card; 40/1 receive straight red card

Bellamy 5/2 To Celebrate With The ‘mobot’

Of all the things that Craig Bellamy may be remembered for in his career, William Hill will always remember him for the night he celebrated a goal against Barcelona by swinging an imaginary golf club. William Hill had been offering 100/1 and ended up paying out upwards of £50,000 on the day. Hills have decided that they will once again take on the Wales wizard offering 5/2 that Bellamy celebrates scoring for Wales on Wednesday night by doing the ‘Mobot’ or the ‘Lightning Bolt’.

“We offered 100/1 that he would do the golf swing celebration back in 2007 and we are now ready to take him on again albeit at a slightly more reserved price of 5/2,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Bellamy has just been at the Olympics and he may have picked up a few celebration tips from his fellow athletes.”
