Crystal Palace 40/1 not to score in next five games after latest defeat


The arrival of Roy Hodgson at Crystal Palace did little to arrest the club’s poor start to the season and William Hill has opened a book not just on when they win pick up their first point but also on when they will score given that they now hold the dubious record of most Premier League minutes without scoring.

Palace are 40/1 to not score in any of their next five games in the Premier League and 10/1 to fail to bag a point in the same time frame. They are, however, 7/2 to pick up a point against Manchester City in their next match and 11/10 to score in that game.

“Hodgson has a big task on his hands and with the tricky run of fixtures in the coming weeks, it is feasible that they could be pointless and goalless at the end of September and beyond,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com.

Latest William Hill odds

When will Crystal Palace score their first goal in this Premier League season: 11/10 Manchester City; 9/4 Manchester United; 4/1 Chelsea; 8/1 Newcastle; 16/1 West Ham; 40/1 none of these games

When will Crystal Palace pick up their first point on the season: 7/2 Manchester City; 4/1 Manchester United; 9/2 Chelsea; 9/2 Newcastle; 5/1 West Ham; 10/1 none of these games

Lukaku odds-on to outshine Rooney this Sunday


Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku is 8/15 with Betway to record more shots on target than Everton’s Wayne Rooney when the two meet in Sunday’s late-kick off.

Rooney is returning to Old Trafford, his footballing home for 13 seasons, and the online bookmaker has priced up his head-to-head battle with current Red Devils frontman Lukaku.

United’s striker is fancied to have more shots on target at 8/15 and outscore Rooney at 4/11. The ex-England skipper can be backed at 7/4 and 5/2, respectively.

“Manchester United don’t appear to have any problems up front at the moment,” Betway’s Alan Alger told Bettingpro.com.

“Their main man Romelu Lukaku can be backed at 4/11 to outscore Rooney in Sunday’s late kick off and is also 8/15 to work the keeper more.

“Rooney has started his second spell at Everton in good form, though. He’s hit the back of the net in two of his four league games and can be backed at 5/2 to outscore Lukaku on Sunday.”

Crystal Palace 6/5 for relegation following Frank de Boer sacking


Frank de Boer has reportedly been sacked following Crystal Palace’s miserable start to  the season, and bookmaker William Hill believe his successor will have a serious fight in trying to keep the club in the Premier League.

De Boer has apparently been given the boot after just four games in charge at Selhurst Park, with the Eagles having lost all four games without scoring a single goal.

Former England boss Roy Hodgson is expected to replace the Dutchman in the next 24 hours and William Hill is 6/5 that he – or whoever does take the job – fails to lead the team to safety this season.

“The hiring of an Allardyce or a Pulis would possibly see us push the odds out of a side being relegated but we are staying exactly as we are,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com.

Latest William Hill odds

Premier League relegation: 6/5 Crystal Palace; 13/10 Brighton; 7/4 Bournemouth; 7/4 Burnley; 7/4 Huddersfield; 7/4 Swansea; 7/2 Newcastle; 7/2 West Ham; 9/2 Watford; 7/1 West Brom; 15/2 Stoke; 12/1 BAR

Mark Hughes 9/4 to snub Rafael Benitez handshake


After Mark Hughes missed out on a handshake from Jose Mourinho at the end of Stoke City’s home draw with Manchester United and given his ongoing silliness with Tony Pulis, William Hill has opened a market on who will the next manager to receive the cold shoulder from the former Wales boss.

Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez is his next potential victim and is just 9/4 to be snubbed post-final whistle, followed by Chelsea manager Antonio Conte who is just 3/1.

Mauricio Pellegrino does, however, look set to receive a friendly Stoke reception and is 12/1 to be mugged off by Hughes when Southampton visit the Potteries, while Hughes is a rather large 10/1 to shake hands with every manager between now and the end of the season.

“Mark Hughes seems to rub some of the more prickly managers up the wrong wayand seems to be snubbed (or indeed do the snubbing himself) on a relatively regular basis,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com.

“It is a short price that him and Rafa ignore each other after the match next week.”

Latest William Hill Odds

When will Mark Hughes next NOT shake hands with opposition manager after the final whistle in the Premier League: 9/4 Newcastle (a); 3/1 Chelsea (h); 12/1 Southampton (h); 25/1 Manchester City (a); 33/1 Bournemouth (h); 50/1 Watford (a); 6/4 any other match after these

Wayne Rooney 9/5 to score against Spurs


While his former England team-mates were on international duty, Wayne Rooney was in the papers for all the wrong reasons last week, and bookmaker William Hill is wondering how he will respond when the Premier League returns this weekend,

Everton entertain Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday and all eyes will no doubt be on Rooney, who is 9/5 to score during the match and 11/2 to net first.

“Rooney will be the focus of much of the pre and post-match discussion and we have already had requests coming in via social media for him to celebrate a goal by pretending to down a pint,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com.

“While we would not offer a price, we reckon it would be around 33/1.”

Latest William Hill odds:

Wayne Rooney to…

Receive a red card vs Spurs: 25/1

Score first against Spurs: 11/2

Score anytime against Spurs: 9/5

Celebrate a goal against Spurs by pretending to neck a pint: 33/1

Philippe Coutinho odds-on NOT to start for Liverpool on Saturday


With the transfer window firmly shut until January, the futures of five players are up in the air despite their declarations that they wished to leave their respective clubs but had to be content with staying put.

With Philippe Coutinho and Virgil van Dijk both contracting mystery injuries that ruled them out of the start of the season, William Hill is now just 6/5 and 11/10 respectively that they are in the starting XIs for both Liverpool and Southampton this weekend.

The pair are 3/1 (Coutinho) and 9/4 (van Dijk) to leave their clubs in January.

“With no moves for the stricken Coutinho and van Dijk, we think there is every chance that they will be Lazarus like in their appearance on the team-sheets this weekend,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com.

Alexis Sanchez and Riyad Mahrez are 2/7 and 1/6 to start this weekend.

Ross Barkley was the subject of perhaps the most bizarre Deadline Day story and the Everton midfielder is odds on at 8/11 to leave the club in January.

Latest William Hill Odds

To start this weekend:

Coutinho: 6/5 yes; 8/13 no
Van Dijk: 11/10 yes; 4/6 no
A Sanchez: 2/7 yes; 5/2 no
Mahrez: 1/6 yes; 7/2 no

To leave their respective clubs in January:

Coutinho: 3/1 yes; 2/9 no
Van Dijk: 9/4 yes; 1/3 no
A Sanchez: 6/4 yes; 1/2 no
Mahrez: 6/4 yes; 1/2 no
Barkley: 8/11 yes; 1/1 no

Arsenal 16/1 to finish in bottom half of Premier League


After a somewhat disappointing start to the season and an equally disappointing transfer window, William Hill is wondering if Arsenal’s 2017/18 campaign will be more disappointing than the 2016/17 one.

The firm is offering 9/4 that the Gunners finish seventh, eighth, ninth or tenth in the Premier League this season, while Arsene Wenger’s men are 16/1 to finish in the bottom half of the table.

Meanwhile, Wenger’s odds of being the first manager to lose his job this season have tumbled from an original 33/1 to just 10/1, making him the fourth favourite behind Frank de Boer at 4/5, Slaven Bilic at 6/4 and Rafa Benitez at 3/1.

Latest William Hill Odds

Arsenal finishing position: 14/1 first or second; 7/1 third; 11/2 fourth; 5/2 fifth; 9/4 sixth; 9/4 7th-10th; 16/1 11th-20th

Next Premier League manager to leave: 4/5 Frank de Boer; 6/4 Slaven Bilic; 3/1 Rafa Benitez; 10/1 Arsene Wenger; 14/1 Antonio Conte; 25/1 Chris Hughton; 25/1 Mark Hughes; 33/1 BAR

Man Utd cut to 9/4 for Premier League title after back-to-back 4-0 wins


BetVictor has cut Manchester United from 11/14 to 9/4 for the Premier League after their fluent 4-0 win at Swansea City, followed up the 4-0 opening-day rout of West Ham United.

Romelu Lukaku added to his opening weekend brace with the second goal in South Wales and is 7/4 from 9/4 to win the Golden Boot having come so close last season.

Paul Pogba scored his second goal of the season and added two assists against the Swans and the French international is 6/1 from 8/1 to be named PFA Player of the Year with BetVictor.

“There will be tougher tests for Jose Mourinho's side in the weeks to come, but it is hard not to be impressed with this new United side,” BetVictor spokesperson Charlie McCann told Bettingpro.com.

“We have trimmed them to 9/4 for the title from 11/4 after their emphatic win at Swansea.”

More Wembley woe? Spurs 40/1 to be winless in first four Premier League home games


Tottenham Hotspur’s Wembley campaign gets underway on Sunday against Chelsea, and bookmaker William Hill is wondering if there will be more misery for Spurs at the national stadium.

Given Spurs’ tough European campaign and FA Cup semi-final heartbreak under the arch last season, the bookmaker is offering 40/1 that they fail to win any of their first four “home” games in the Premier League.

Spurs are 23/20 to win their home opener, with Chelsea 13/5 to bounce back from the shock defeat to Burnley with a win. The draw is 11/5.

Latest William Hill odds

90 minutes: 23/20 Tottenham; 13/5 Chelsea; 11/5 draw

Chelsea drift to 6/1 for Premier League title after opening-day defeat.


After a terrible start to the season, Chelsea have drifted from 7/2 to 6/1 to retain their Premier League crown with William Hill.

Following Saturday’s shock home defeat to Burnley, which saw two players get sent off, boss Antonio Conte is the 6/1 fourth favourite to be the first manager to leave his job this season.

Want-away striker Diego Costa is just 2/7 NOT to play in the Premier League again for Chelsea.

“It sounds crazy but just one game into the season it seems Chelsea are in crisis,” William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams told Bettingpro.com.

“Conte is now one of the favourites to be the first manager out of the door and Chelsea look a shadow of the side that won the league so convincingly last season.”

Everton proving popular but Chelsea remain favourites for Premier League title


Having seen Leicester City go from 5000/1 write-offs to Premier League champions in 2015/16, Ladbrokes punters are not ruling out a shock title success for big-spending Everton this season.

Chelsea are by far the most popular outright selection for the 2017/18 title and that will come as no surprise, the big revelation from the bookies is that Everton are being favoured more than Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal AND Tottenham Hotspur.

The bookies can report that Spurs, despite finishing second last year, are less popular than six other sides, while Premier League newbies Huddersfield Town and Brighton & Hove Albion make the top 10 in terms of outright bets placed.

Meanwhile, West Bromwich Albion remain the least popular by some distance to lift the trophy, with Bournemouth and Stoke City fans also being pessimistic about their chances of winning the league.

“This table makes for interesting reading with plenty confident Conte's men can retain the title,” Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati told Bettingpro.com.

“But the stand-out side for us has to be Everton. Ronald Koeman has added some serious talent to his team and if our punters are right, the Toffees could be in for an exciting campaign.”

Chelsea 3x more popular than any other club to win Premier League


Chelsea are three times more popular to win the 2017/18 Premier League than any other club with Ladbrokes punters.

The bookies can report the reigning champions - currently 3/1 second-favourites to retain the title - are leading the way by some distance in terms of bets placed.

Meanwhile, for the first time in Premier League history, Everton (80/1) are proving a more popular bet than Liverpool (11/1) to lift the trophy next May.

“While Chelsea have done very little in the way of improving their squad for the upcoming season, punters clearly can't see a way past Antonio Conte's men,” Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati told Bettingpro.com.

“At the other end of the table, Huddersfield Town remain the most backed side for relegation with David Wagner's men 4/7 for the drop.”

Premier League 6/4 to introduce safe standing by May 2020


Shrewsbury Town have become the first team with an all seater stadium to apply for safe standing to be introduced at their ground, and William Hill is now offering odds on Premier League sides following suit.

Hills is 6/4 that at least one Premier League side has introduced it to their stadium before the end of the 2019/20 season, while it is 1/2 that top-flight stadiums are still all-seater venues at that time.

“There seems to be a real appetite for safe standing to be introduced and with Shrewsbury Town setting the ball rolling, there could be a number of clubs wanting to do the same,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com. 

“This could well lead to the FA easing their stance on top flight clubs introducing it and top flight safe standing could be just around the corner.”

Rafael Benitez 2/1 favourite to be first Premier League manager to go


Frank de Boer has been installed as the new Crystal Palace manager and means that there is now a full complement of managers in place at all 20 Premier League clubs – but who will be the first man to go?

William Hill has priced up their first manager to go market and make Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez the 2/1 favourite to “win” the sack race, with de Boer out at 50/1 to be the first to go.

“Benitez is reportedly growing increasingly frustrated,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com.

“And rather than being shown the door, it looks likely he could make his own way there.”

Latest William Hill Odds:

First Premier League manager to leave:

2/1 Rafa Benitez; 7/2 Slaven Bilic; 9/1 Mark Hughes; 12/1 Marco Silva; 12/1 Tony Pulis; 12/1 Craig Shakespeare; 12/1 Paul Clement; 16/1 Sean Dyche; 20/1 Chris Hughton; 20/1 David Wagner; 25/1 Antonio Conte; 25/1 Arsene Wenger; 40/1 Eddie Howe; 40/1 Jose Mourinho; 40/1 Jurgen Klopp; 40/1 Mauricio Pellegrini; 40/1 Pep Guardiola; 50/1 Frank de Boer; 50/1 Ronald Koeman; 66/1 Mauricio Pochettino

Crystal Palace odds:

To win the League: 750/1
Relegation: 7/2
To stay up: 1/6

Bookies price up record-breaking 2017/18 Premier League campaign


Bookmaker Ladbrokes has priced up a whole host of record-breaking specials in preparation for the upcoming Premier League season:

Any side to set a new record for most points won (currently 95) is 4/1

Any side to record a lower points tally than Derby in 2007-08 (11) is just 5/1

It's 9/2 for any player to score 32+ goals

Any goalkeeper to break the clean sheet record (21) is 9/2

Any side to break Arsenal and Chelsea's record of 14 consecutive wins is 6/1

Any striker to beat Jamie Vardy's record of scoring in 11 consecutive games is 6/1

Any side to go a whole season unbeaten is 9/1

Meanwhile, it is just 8/1 for any side NOT playing European football this season to win the Premier League, as Chelsea and Leicester City have both done in the last two campaigns.

“Interest in the new Premier League campaign is really heating up right now, and our traders are fancying a few records to be broken throughout the season,” Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati told Bettingpro.com.

“That 5/1 on any side recording a lesser points tally than Derby County suggests Huddersfield or Brighton could be in for a tough time of things, while at 4/1 we'd hardly be surprised to see any side picking up 96 points or more.”

Romelu Lukaku 1/7 to start Chelsea's first game of 2017/18 season


Bookmaker Ladbrokes is offering odds of just 1/7 on Romelu Lukaku starting Chelsea's opening game of the season, despite the forward still being an Everton player.

That makes him by far the most likely striker to be leading the line for the Blues, while Diego Costa is 7/4 to feature from the offset for the champions against Burnley.

“We're so confident that Lukaku will return to Stamford Bridge this summer that we're already pricing up the likelihood of him featuring in Chelsea's opening game,” Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati told bettingpro.com.

“And at 1/7, the Belgian looks nailed on to force want-away striker Diego Costa out of the starting line-up.”

Chelsea have also been linked with a shock move for Robert Lewandowski, and the bookies make it just a 2/1 shot for the Bayern Munich ace to appear in Antonio Conte's first team-sheet of the season, while Alvaro Morata is the least likely of this quartet at 7/2.

Premier League fixtures: Champions Chelsea 7/2 favourites to top table after opening weekend


Chelsea are 7/2 favourites to top the Premier League table after the opening round of fixtures, according to bookmaker Ladbrokes.

The Blues cruised to the English title last season and have been handed a favourable start to the 2017/18 campaign having been paired with a Burnley side that managed just one win on their travels in the league last season and collected just seven points from a possible 57.

Chelsea, meanwhile, won 17 of their 19 league matches at Stamford Bridge, outscoring opponents 55-17, so a convincing win could be on the cards and therefore it is no shock to see Ladbrokes making them 7/2 favourites to be top of the tree when the first round of games is in the books.

Manchester United and Manchester City are joint favourites at 5/1 as they host West Ham United and visit newly-promoted Brighton & Hove Albion respectively, while Arsenal are 11/2 shots to be top of the tree as they kick-off at home to Leicester City.

Elsewhere top-flight newcomers Newcastle United host Tottenham Hotspur and Huddersfield Town visit Crystal Palace, so it is no shock to see Ladbrokes offering 150/1 that all three of the Premier League’s new-boys open up with a win.

The firm is 7/1 that all of last season’s top six – Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur – all make winning starts.

“We're expecting the champions to pick up where they left off - especially after being gifted a home clash against Burnley,” Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati told Bettingpro.com.

“But with two of the three newly-promoted sides set to play Tottenham and Manchester City, it's easy to see why we're just 3/1 that Newcastle, Brighton and Huddersfield all lose their opening matches.”

Manchester City 11/5 favourites to rip title away from Chelsea next season


Manchester City are the 11-5 favourites with leading bookmaker Coral to lift the Premier League title next season following the finale of the 2016/17 campaign.

Reigning champions Chelsea are 11-4 to defend their crown, while Manchester United can be backed at 7-2 and Tottenham Hotspur are 7-1 to go one place better next year.

“Manchester City are expected to splash the cash again this summer and with the resources Pep Guardiola has available to him, they are the favourites to win the 2017/18 Premier League title,” Coral’s John Hill told Bettingpro.com.

“It should be a fascinating season and that is reflected in the betting as there is very little between the defending champions and the two Manchester clubs in the outright market.”
