Bookies Pay Penalty For Balotelli Late Winner

Bookmakers William Hill were left counting the cost of Mario Balotelli’s controversial late winning goal for Manchester City against Spurs – ‘The difference between City winning the game and it being a draw was into seven figures for William Hill alone and must have cost the industry £5m+ as punters steamed into the Manchester double, pairing City to beat Spurs, with United beating Arsenal’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Fans Start Chamber-Layin Into Arsene

As Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain left the Emirates field to a chorus of boos, there hinted the first signs of dissatisfaction towards Arsene Wenger from the Arsenal faithful. William Hill offer 13/8 that Arsene Wenger is no longer Arsenal boss come the end of the season. Oxlade-Chamberlain is 6/4 to be in England’s Euro 2012 squad and 8/13 to be in Team GB’s Olympics squad. Danny Welbeck bagged the winner for Manchester United and Hills make him 2/1 to start the first game of the Euros for England.

“There was a real feeling of discontent around the Emirates as Oxlade-Chamberlain was taken off and the usually steadfast support of Arsene Wenger appears to be crumbling at the moment,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

William Hill make Manchester City the 2/5 favourites to win the Premier League, after their last minute penalty helped to maintain their three point lead over 9/4 Manchester United. Spurs however are out to 16/1 while another defeat for Arsenal has left them at 150/1.

With the two Manchester sides seemingly having sewn up a top four finish at least, the race is on to fill the other two spots, with Spurs 1/5, Chelsea 2/5 and Arsenal 2/1, while Spurs also lead the race to win the league without the two Manchester sides at 8/11.

Premier League winner: 2/5 Manchester City; 9/4 Manchester United; 16/1 Tottenham; 50/1 Chelsea; 150/1 Arsenal; 500/1 Liverpool

Top four finish: 1/5 Spurs; 2/5 Chelsea; 2/1 Arsenal; 7/2 Liverpool; 25/1 Newcastle; 100/1 BAR

Winner without Manchester: 8/11 Tottenham; 13/8 Chelsea; 13/2 Arsenal; 20/1 Liverpool; 250/1 Newcastle

Top London Club: 4/6 Tottenham; 13/8 Chelsea; 11/2 Arsenal; 100/1 Fulham; 200/1 QPR

Oxlade-Chamberlain to be in Euro 2012 squad: 6/4 yes; 1/2 no

Oxlade Chamberlain to be in Team GB & NI football team for Olympics: 8/13 yes; 6/5 no

Danny Welbeck to start England’s first Euro 2012 match: 2/1 yes; 4/11 no

Arsene Wenger still at Arsenal on the 1st game of 2012/13 season: 4/9 yes; 13/8 no

MICK McCARTHY 4/1 TO BE NEXT PREM BOSS TO GO

William Hill make Mick McCarthy 4/1 third favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his club after Wolves’ dramatic late fightback to earn a point against Swansea. ‘Without the late comeback Mick may well have taken over as favourite to be the next boss out’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills make Blackburn’s Steve Kean 10/11 to be the next manager to go with Steve Bruce out from 5/4 to 5/2 second favourite. They then offer 13/2 Owen Coyle; 14/1 David Moyes; Neil Warnock; 16/1 Roberto Martinez; Arsene Wenger. It is 100/1 that no more Prem boss depart before the end of the season.

Arsene’s Crisis And Transfer Specials…fa(cebook) Cup Odds

Arsenal are having a torrid time of things at the moment with players wanting out, injuries and suspensions. Hills predict that they will struggle to take many points from the next two games (against Liverpool and Manchester United) offering 7/2 they get none and 9/4 just one. Arsenal will need to strengthen if they are to challenge for any honours this year and Hills offer 13/8 that Wenger makes four or more signings before the end of the transfer window. Samir Nasri is 1/12 to leave Arsenal by the end of the transfer window and 6/1 to remain at the Emirates. Arsenal are 1/6 to finish another season with no silverware.

“Arsene is already under pressure and the odds suggest that Arsenal could feasibly have just one point after their first three games,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Wesley Sneijder looks as though his move to Manchester United may be drawing ever closer with Hills making him 8/11 to now make the move from Italy. He is Evens to stay with Inter. Luka Modric has been the subject of a new bid from Chelsea and he is 8/13 to make the Blues his next club.

Facebook is to screen its first ever football match live, an extra-preliminary FA Cup qualifier between Ascot United vs Wembley FC. William Hill make the hosts the 11/10 favourites to win the match, while Wembley are 7/4 for victory. The draw is 5/2.

Arsenal points in next two games: 8/1 six; 7/2 four; 2/1 three; 9/4 one; 7/2 none

Number of Arsenal signings before the end of the transfer window: 7/4 0-1; 6/4 2 or three; 13/8 four or more
*must be a professional senior contract

Arsenal Trophies: 1/6 None

Luka Modric next permanent club: 8/13 Chelsea; 5/2 Manchester United; 9/1 Arsenal; 10/1 Manchester City; 20/1 Barcelona; 20/1 Real Madrid

Punters’ Picks For Title/ Relegation…….. Arsene’s Future

PUNTERS’ PICKS FOR TITLE/RELEGATION……..ARSENE’S FUTURE

PUNTERS TIP LIVERPOOL FOR THE TITLE – BLACKBURN , NEWCASTLE AND VILLA FOR DROP

William Hill have analysed bets struck on the Premier League title and relegation races so far, and discovered that Liverpool have accounted for almost 40% of bets struck so far on the title, and Blackburn Rovers have attracted the greatest percentage of relegation bets taken thus far – 20.43%.
‘The two lists – derived from bets struck online, although they are closely mirrored by our shop bets- show an intriguing and striking convergence from the betting odds – Liverpool are only 10/1 fifth favourites for the title in our outright odds, while Blackburn are 3/1 sixth favourites for the drop – Villa, third best backed to go down, are actually joint seventh favourites to win the title, while Norwich, 7th best backed for the title are second favourites to be relegated!’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
‘It will be fascinating to look back with hindsight, and see whether the bookies or the punters have got it right.’

BEGINNING OF END FOR ARSENE?

ARSENE WENGER has been cut from 33/1 to 10/1 joint fourth favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his club as he appeared to be facing the loss of both Fabregas and Nasri from his squad. Hills make him 1/6 to see out of the season, 7/2 not to. ‘Should the Gunners get off to a slow start pressure will mount inexorably on Arsene Wenger, in which circumstances it is not impossible to envisage an end to his reign at Arsenal.’ Said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

William Hill– Next Prem boss to go….13/8 Kean; 2/1 Warnock; 4/1 Pardew; 10 Bruce; Wenger; 12 McCarthy; 14 Redknapp; 16 Coyle, Mancini, Martinez, Moyes. Others on request.

Kenny Odds On To Improve Liverpool – But Will It Be Enough ?

YOU BET KING KENNY WILL IMPROVE LIVERPOOL – BUT WILL HE GET THE JOB FULL TIME?

William Hill offer 1/5 that Liverpool will end the season in a higher position than their current 12th place, but still offer odds against Kenny Dalglish getting the job as boss on a permanent basis, quoting him at 13/8 to do so, with Martin O’Neill the 4/1 second favourite; Frank Rijkaard and Owen Coyle both 5/1; Ralf Rangnick 6/1 and Andre Villas-Boas 8/1, while Guus Hiddink and Manuel Pellegrini are both 10/1. ‘Kenny’s first game in charge was certainly eventful but the jury is still out over whether he is the right man to take the club forward on a permanent basis’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

A William Hill client from Wales who gambled £2000 that Roy Hodgson would be the next Premier League manager to leave his club will now collect £3140 after the 4/7 wager obliged.’Hodgson was red hot favourite to be the next boss out and the market leader has duly obliged’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Given the lack of draw so far in the Premiership, which has cost us fortunes, we could do with this match ending all square’ said William Hill‘s spokesman Graham Sharpe.

You Bet Big Four Era Is Coming To Close

YOU BET BIG FOUR ERA IS COMING TO CLOSE

William Hill have opened a book on which of the ‘Big 4 Bosses’ will leave his club first, and on when one of the four will eventually depart – making Rafa Benitez and 2010 respectively the favourites.

‘WITH ALL OF THE BIG Four Clubs and their bosses beginning to feel a little pressure, either from fans because of their own performances on behalf of their clubs, or by the shadow of Big 4 wannabes like Man City, Spurs, Villa and Everton closing in on their private club of four, it feels as though an era may be drawing to a close’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe. ‘We think Rafa is in genuine danger of departing by the end of the season, and one or two of his Big 4 counterparts clearly can’t go on much longer as they are already rivalling the Rolling Stones for longevity. The betting on whether the Big 4 will still dominate the Top 4 at the end of the season or not is also very close’.
