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.

Mancini Bookie Enemy Number One !

You bet Mancini bookies’ least favourite Italian since Frankie as:

William Hill say that Saturday’s football results were so predictable for punters that they enjoyed their best ever day in the eternal battle with ‘the old enemy’
‘If Heineken ever created football results for football punters, these would have been the ones’ declared William Hill spokesman Graham Sharpe .’They are the culmination of a run of results during the month, which have been as wallet-warming for football punters as the unseasonably mild November weather.

‘In the Premier League almost every punter was on Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal to win; the top two in the Championship, Southampton and West Ham both won; the top five in both League One and League Two all won, as did the top two in the Blue Square Premier. Celtic won in the SPL, and the only slight relief was that Rangers were held to a home draw, but then the games in the William Hill Scottish Cup did us no favours, either! It made for a perfect storm of results which have cost us a significant seven figure sum on a day when no bookmaker can have escaped a record payout.

It is football betting’s equivalent of racing’s Dettori day in 1996, when Frankie rode all seven winners at Ascot, costing the industry almost £50million- and we are again blaming an Italian, this time unbeaten Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini, for kicking off the mayhem by beating the only other unbeaten club in the Premier League’
Punters backing long-odds accumulative bets were the biggest winners, collecting four and five figure sums from modest stakes.
