Punters on 'Cloud 9' thanks to Spurs
Football fans land £10,000 windfall!
Two football fans will collect over ten thousand pounds between them from William Hill after placing a bet with them at the start of the Premier League season that any one club in the division would score NINE or more goals in one match during the season.
When Spurs hit nine against Wigan on Sunday, Dan Turner,27, collected £6700 from Hills for his £100 bet at odds of 66/1, while Jamie Smalley, 28, is £3350 better off after staking £50 at 66/1.
Neither of the flatmates from South East London supports Spurs - banker, Dan, who is a Chelsea fan, and entrepreneur Jamie who runs the 'Cheeky Butler' company (www.cheekybutlers.com) follows Liverpool.
'The lads approached us pre-season with the idea for their bet, which they had come up with when Middlesbro hit eight past Manchester City a couple of seasons back, and we were happy to offer them 66/1, which they accepted - I can't see us being as generous next season if they want the bet again, and we're definitely taking Wigan boss Roberto Martinez off our Christmas card list!' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
William Hill now offer 40/1 that any Premiership side will hit 10 or more goals in a Premier League game this season - and offer 11/1 that any single Premire League match will have an aggregate of 11 or more goals this season.
Jermain Defoe is now 11/4 favourite for this season's Golden Boot with William Hill who also make him 13/8 to start England's first World Cup match and 4/9 not to.
Hills offer 66/1 that any player will score 6 or more in a Premier League game this season.
Drogba is 10/3 second favourite to win the Golden Boot with Hills who also offer 7/2 Torres; 11/2 Bent; 8/1 Rooney; 16 Van Persie; 20 Anelka; Adebayor.
