Premiership playoffs odds,
THREE PLAY OFF WINNERS TO COME STRAIGHT BACK DOWN WITH THE THREE PLAY
OFF FINALS taking place this weekend, William Hill are offering 14/1
that all three winners will be relegated next season, and 7/2 that all
three manage to stay up. 'Promotion via the play-offs can be a double
edged sword, with the Play Off euphoria disappearing quickly as the
reality of life in a higher division kicks in from day one' said Hill's
spokesman Graham Sharpe.

8/1GOALIE TO THE RELEGATION RESCUE?
WILLIAM HILL are offering 8/1 that one or more of the goalkeepers
playing for the four relegation threatened Premiership sides- Hull,
Middlesbro, Newcastle, or Sunderland -this Sunday will score a goal as
their clubs try to avoid the drop. 'With relegation-threatened clubs
likely to be desperate for late goals, it is quite possible that keepers
will be sent into opposition boxes in an effort to ensure Premiership
survival.' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Each club's keeper is 33/1 to score individually.
Hills have also opened a book on which of the four clubs will score the
fastest goal on the day, and make Newcastle 9/4 favourites, with Boro
and Hull both 5/2; Sunderland 3/1; 33/1 none of the four to score. And
Hills are also betting on which of the four will score the last - and go
2/1 Newcastle; 9/4 Hull; 3/1 Boro; 10/3 Sunderland; 33/1 none of the
four to score.
TO BE RELEGATED: 1/100 Middlesbro (16/1 stay up); 4/7 Newcastle (5/4
stay up); 13/8 Hull (4/9 stay up); 8/1 Sunderland (1/20 stay up)
HOW WILL THE BOTTOM THREE END UP?

end up and offer Even money that West Brom will finish bottom; Boro 19th
and Newcastle 18th.

MANCHESTER CITY 5/6 TO FINISH IN TOP SIX
WITH MANCHESTER CITY predicting that they are aiming at a top six place
in the Premiership next season, William Hill offer 5/6 that they will
achieve that aim, and 5/6 that they will not.
And with City reportedly confirming that Mark Hughes will remain as
their boss next season, William Hill are offering odds of 4/6 that he
will have left the job before kick-off on the final day of NEXT season,
and 11/10 that he will still be in control then. 'Mark Hughes seems to
have a tremendous opportunity to utilise the resources now behind City
in order to launch a serious bid to gatecrash the Big Four next season -
it is likely that his long-term future is directly related to his
success in achieving, or at least going close to achieving, that
objective.' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills have also opened a book on where City - 33/1 fifth favourites for
the title next season - will finish at the end of the forthcoming
Where Will Man City Finish Next Season?
1-4 5/1; 5-6 13/8; 7-8 9/4; 9-10 11/2; 11-14 10/1; 15-17 33/1; Relegated
80/1 (Top 6 - 5/6 yes; 5/6 no) UNITED BACKED ALREADY - FOR NEXT SEASON
WILLIAM HILL have cut Manchester United's Premiership title odds for
next season from 6/4 to 11/8 favourites after early support for them,
prompted by Sir Alex Ferguson's announcement that he has no plans to
quit as boss. 'Sir Alex's confirmation that he is going nowhere saw a
flurry of bets for United to win the title again next season' said
Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills make Chelsea and Liverpool 11/4 joint second favourites, and also
offer; Arsenal 7/1; Man City 33/1; Tottenham 66/1 ; Aston Villa 100/1;
Everton 200/1; West Ham 400/1; Fulham 1000/1; Wigan 1500/1; Blackburn
1500/1; Wolves 1500/1; Bolton 2000/1; Portsmouth2000/1; Stoke 2000/1;
Birmingham 2500/1. (Others included once relegation issues decided).
WILL ANYONE GATE-CRASH BIG FOUR NEXT SEASON?
WILLIAM HILL OFFER 4/6 THAT THE BIG FOUR WILL FINISH IN THE TOP FOUR
NEXT SEASON - AND 11/10 THAT ANY OTHER SIDE WILL FINISH IN THE TOP FOUR.
Hills are also betting on how long United's unbroken run of titles -
currently standing at three - will reach.
Hills offer 8/15 that the run will end at three (ie they won't win it
again next season); 11/4 that they will extend the sequence to four
before it ends; 8/1 that it reaches five before finishing; 18/1 six;
33/1 seven; 40/1 eight or more.
'Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal will be amongst those desperate to end
United's domination but Fergie and co won't give it up easily' said
Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

more, or less, likely to improve the chances of England winning the
right to host the World Cup six years on' said Hill's spokesman Graham
