Carlo odds-on to go
WILL HOULLIER AND ANCELOTTI MAKE IT TO NEXT SEASON?
With reports that Carlo Ancelotti is set to leave Chelsea in the summer regardless of whether they win either or both of the Premier and Champions Leagues, William Hill quote the Blues' boss at Even money still to be in charge on the first day of next season, but odds-on at 8/11 not to be.
'It would be a real shock were Ancelotti to win the Champions League, yet still be sacked' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
And Hills have also cut their odds for Gerard Houllier to be the next Premier League manager to leave his club this season from 6/1 to 7/2 - and the Villa boss is 6/5 no longer to be at the club on the first day of next season, but 8/13 to survive.
‘Houllier has yet to convince the fans he has come to terms with the job at Villa and with relegation threatening he is on shaky ground' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Houllier still Villa boss on first day of next season: 8/13 Yes; 6/5 no
Next Prem boss out this season: 6/4 No more to go; 3/1 Kean; 7/2 Ancelotti; Houllier; Martinez; 6 Mancini; 10 Grant; 14 Hughes. Others on request.
ENGLAND 4/6 TO BE SIXCESSFUL AGAINST WALES
William Hill make England 4/6 to win both of their Euro 2012 qualifiers against Wales - and 66/1 to lose both.
England are 2/5 to win away at the weekend with the Welsh 6/1 to pull off an upset win.
'These two games are crucial for both sides, and as England rugby union side discovered at the weekend, form can go out of the window in matches like this' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
England total points v Wales:
11/4 'W' STANDS FOR 'WAY OUT'!
William Hill offer 11/4 that three clubs whose names begin with the letter 'W' will be relegated this season, and 20/1 that three beginning with 'B' go down.
To be relegated: 2/5 Wigan (7/4 stay up); 5/4 Blackpool; 6/4 West Ham; 13/8 WBA; 7/4 Birmingham; 2/1 Wolves; Blackburn; 13/2 Villa.
To finish bottom: 5/4 Wigan; 11/2 Blackpool; 6/1 West Ham; 7/1 WBA; Wolves; 9 Birmingham; 11 Blackburn.
WHICH OF THREE MISFIRING STRIKERS WILL BE FIRST OFF MARK IN PREM?
William Hill are betting on which of the high profile misfiring trio of Premier League strikers will be first to score in the division - and make Torres favourite to do so before Carroll or Dzeko does.
'These three costly signings have yet to live up to their price tags but surely it is just a matter of time before they come good' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills make Chelsea 1/9 to win nothing this season, and 33/1 to win the Prem-Champions League double.
Who will score first Prem goal:
**Based on round of matches then on minute of match.
When will Torres score for Chelsea:
Stoke (A) 1/1
Man Utd CL (H) 4/1
Wigan (H) 10/3
Man Utd CL (A) 12/1
West Brom (A) 9/1
None of these 6/1
**Bets void if games not played in this order, if any postponements and if Torres fails to start at least one of the fixtures.
Chelsea have been cut from 7/1 to 11/2 to win the title by William Hill who make Man U 8/15 favs with Arsenal 11/4; Man City 50/1.
Hills offer 11/8 a Man U-Arsenal 1-2 and also offer 11/4 Man U-Chelsea; 7/2 Arsenal-Man U; 12/1 Chelsea-Man U; 20/1 Arsenal-Chelsea; 25/1 Chelsea- Arsenal. Others on request.
