Jack the Lad: You bet Wilshere is new Premier wild man
Punters who are tearing up their 'next Premier League footballer to be arrested' slips, following news of Jack Wilshere's arrest, had best hold on. William Hill are not going to be paying out on the Arsenal starlet's arrest as it was for an offence that happened last year. This means that the betting for second arrest of 2011 is still open. Hill's have cut Wilshere's odds from 11/1 to 9/1 to be the second footballer arrested for a new offence. Trio, Andy Carroll, Joey Barton and Mario Balotelli are joint 7/1 favourites.
"Jack's rap sheet is growing at an alarming rate and he could soon be earning punters more money for his off field antics than he does playing football," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Last week, Hill's paid out on Craig Bellamy being the first Premier League arrest of the season. Despite playing for Cardiff, his registration is still held by Manchester City.
Second Premier League Footballer Arrested For New Offence: 7/1 Andy Carroll; 7/1 Joey Barton; 7/1 Mario Ballotelli; 9/1 Jack Wilshere; 11/1 John Terry; 11/1 Anton Ferdinand; 12/1 Steven Gerrard; 12/1 El Hadji Diouf; 14/1 Wayne Rooney; 16/1 Barry Ferguson; 16/1 Kevin Nolan; 16/1 Ashley Cole; 20/1 Jermaine Pennant; 20/1 Jermaine Pennant; 20/1 Jermaine Defoe; 25/1 Rio Ferdinand; 25/1 Frank Lampard; 25/1 Joe Hart; 33/1 Nicolas Anelka; 33/1 Carlos Tevez; 33/1 Didier Drogba
