Next West Ham Manager betting opens up as Moyes leaves

Next Manager Betting & Transfers
The Premier League season has barely finished an already there have been some managerial casualties. With Sam Allardyce getting the boot from Everton, West Ham saw David Moyes walk away from his position at the club. Moyes had been at the London Stadium just six months and with the struggles that West Ham had over the course of the season, especially in defence, to the point where they were flirting with relegation one point, the Scotsman has packed his bags. So that opens the next West Ham manager betting market wide open and the two early front-runners are Paulo Fonseca and Manuel Pellegrini. It will be interesting to see just what the London club can attract in terms of pedigree in a manager. The Hammers haven’t done very well in recent transfer markets and fans have protested the lack of action from the club owners this season. So if they can get their hands on Pellegrini for example the former Manchester City boss who took the Citizens to the Premier League title in 2013/14 season, it would be quite the coup for the Hammers. He does have a decent track record of turning struggling sides into strong challengers for some form of silverware and that can be seen in his track record at both Malaga and Villarreal whom he took deep into UEFA Champions League campaigns from nowhere. So he has the quality to turn clubs around and the 65-year-old is at 6/5 odds at Ladbrokes* (Betting Odds taken at 7:06 p.m. on May 16th, 2018) to get the job. The only man shorter than him in the market Paulo Fonseca. This would be more of a gamble for the Hammers because, despite successes with FC Braga and Shakhtar Donetsk, he hasn’t been in top-level managerial situations in any of Europe’s big 5 leagues. So he’s a bit of an unknown quantity in that regard. Rafa Benitez is a short 5/1 odds option* (Betting Odds taken at 7:06 p.m. on May 16th, 2018) in the next West Ham manager betting market, however while it would be a pretty decent fit for the London club in terms of being able to pick up positive frugal signings, it could be hard for them to get him away from Newcastle. Benitez has done a great job on Tyneside, however, the club could be sold over the summer which could potentially leave Benitez in the cold. Other early names on the list of next West Ham managers include former Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boa, Unai Emery, Claudio Ranieri, Marco Silva and of course Arsene Wenger.

West Ham manager betting odds*

Paulo Fonseca 10/11, Manuel Pellegrini 6/5, Rafa Benitez 8/1, Unai Emery 10/1, Andre Villas-Boas 16/1, David Wagner 16/1, Julian Nagelsmann 16/1, Claudio Ranieri 20/1, Marco Silva 20/1, Eddie HOwe 20/1, Arsene Wenger 33/1, Sam Allardyce 33/1* (Betting Odds taken at 7:06 p.m. on May 16th, 2018)

Ladbrokes punter delivers massive midweek acca success

Ladbrokes
One punter will certainly be celebrating the end of the football season as they cashed in big on the recent midweek action from across Europe. The punter managed to turn £100 into £110k on Wednesday night from an online sevenfold wager at bookmaker Ladbrokes, which included the surprise point that Huddersfield took (5/1) against Chelsea. The punter had also backed Kilmarnock for a surprise point away at Celtic as well (19/4), while the punter produced five other correct outcomes on games across Europe. Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “What an end to the season this punter has had. The stake was high but it all proved to be worthwhile in the end as no late drama was necessary for the monster bet to land.” BET IN FULL Chelsea v Huddersfield – Draw – 5/1 Leicester to beat Arsenal – 13/4 Man City to beat Brighton – 2/13 Tottenham to beat Newcastle – 1/5 Celtic v Kilmarnock – Draw – 19/4 Barcelona to beat Villarreal – 4/11 Dumbarton to beat Alloa – 3/1 Total Stake – £100 Total Returns – £110,737.76

Bookies relieved as Royals pick the name Louis

Novelty Betting & Other Events Betting
Bookies were relieved on Friday as Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge pulled a name out of left field for their third child. The couple called the newborn Louis Arthur Charles and the name Louis was around 6/1 odds but at some places, bookmakers had ignored the name like at Paddy Power where it was an 18/1 in the build up to the big unveiling. Heading up the market for the name of the next royal baby just before Kensington Palace made their announcement, was Albert at 2/1 odds. Paddy Power had suspended betting on the market early on Friday after a late flurry of action on Albert. That was after, they announced, that they had paid out on the name Arthur before the Royals had even left the hospital. Ladbrokes had Louis at 20/1 odds after the birth and was at 14/1 early on Friday morning. Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Prince Louis has caught both bookies and punters by surprise. With it being one of Prince George’s middle names fans didn’t see it as an obvious front-runner for Kate and Wills second son.” “It looks like we made the right decision to keep betting open until the very end for royal punters, rather than suspending the market or paying out early due to the rumour mill going into overdrive, as we so often saw over the last few days.” Not many punters predicted Louis in the Royal baby name betting so it has proved to be a little bit of a surprise, to the relief of the bookmakers who feared the late gamble on Albert,” said Coral’s John Hill. But one punter at Betfair clearly had a startling revelation as someone stuck a £12,000 bet at Betfair on the royal baby being named Louis on Friday morning. Betfair's biggest winner of the day was a £3,200 payout in Leicester by a punter who bet £200 yesterday when the odds were at 16/1. But as news of the name seemingly leaked out through this morning, the odds kept shortening. “At 6 am this morning the name Louis was at 120/1, so a £10 bet at that time would have netted you £1,200," said Betfair's Katie Baylis. "Those odds kept shortening throughout the morning and by 9 am Louis was at 60/1, at 10.30 30/1 and just 15 minutes later was at 9/1. "By 11 am when the name was announced it was as short as 1/100 and we had had 12k bet on Louis this morning alone."

Grand National to draw over £150m in bets for 2018 renewal

Ladbrokes
It is predicted that over £150m in bets will be placed on this year’s renewal of the Grand National. It is all eyes on Aintree on the weekend for this famous test of endurance, at over four miles. The race is such a spectacle, such a thrill that even casual punters jump on board in this one. It’s not uncommon for workplace sweepstakes to be rolled out. People will hit the high street shops and jump online to make their bets on the Grand National, those who never bother with anything else throughout the year. That is the magic of the Grand National, the thundering forty-horse field charging around the Merseyside course. It is one of the greatest sights in sport. It is Tiger Roll who has moved to 8/1 favourite at Ladbrokes* (betting odds taken at 4:54 p.m. on April 11th, 2018) ahead of Saturday’s race, but there has been plenty of support for Anibale Fly, Total Recall and Blaklion as well from punters in the ante-post. Trading just beyond them is the threat off Seeyouatmidnight at 16/1 odds* (betting odds taken at 4:54 p.m. on April 11th, 2018), which would hit the bookies hard in the pocket. Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said: “This weekend will see betting go through the roof, with a whopping £150 million set to be gambled on Grand National day across the industry. It’s the day the nation goes to the bookies, making it the biggest betting event of the year.” “Tiger Roll and Seeyouatmidnight are the two biggest losers in the book so we will be approaching the weekend with a mixture of fear and excitement.”

2018 Grand National Winner

Tiger Roll – 8/1 Anibale Fly – 10/1 Total Recall – 10/1 Blaklion – 10/1 The Last Samurai – 16/1 Seeyouatmidnight – 16/1 20/1 bar

Ask and you may receive at Ladbrokes thanks to request system

Ladbrokes
One of the best online bookmakers around for firing up quirky markets is Ladbrokes. They will listen to their customers and are more than willing to price up unique markets on request. So let’s imagine for a moment that you have a big premonition about something that is way off in the future. It’s not likely that you are going to be able to find a price for it in a sportsbook, but you can head over to Ladbrokes and ask. For example, the Ladbrokes traders have offered up a quote of 7/1 on Troy Deeney to gain a full international cap for England before 01/05/2016 and that was on request. Basically if you don't ask you don't get and what is there to lose? Ladbrokes do have a new unique request system up which punters can take advantage of. Just go to their Requested Specials page and you will see other markets that punters have asked for, such as a world title for Anthony Joshua before the end of 2016 (2/1), Jordan Henderson to be the next permanent England captain (5/2) and Jordan Spieth to win all four majors in 2015 (250/1). The end of the season is generally when punters start thinking ahead long term and perhaps weighing up some alternative bets. Maybe Bournemouth will muscle their way in the Europa League. Maybe Harry Kane will knock 40 goals in next season. Maybe even something as obscure as Steven Gerrard kissing the camera on his LA Galaxy debut. Maybe you’re convinced that Radamel Falcao will remain at Old Trafford and top the Premier League scoring charts next year, or that Harry Redknapp will make a return to West Ham? Whatever it is, enjoy the Ladbrokes new request system and just see what you can get a bet down on.

How can I request my own bet from bookmakers?

Bookmaker News
Bookmakers have started to put a fair bit of control into the hands of punters thanks to online betting opportunities. No longer do punters just have to go and settle for what is on offer in a sportsbook with a bookmaker, instead, now, punters are able to go and create a bet of their own liking and then simply go and ask for that wager to be priced up. It is nice to be able to go and call the shots to some degree if you think you can strike it rich. This increasingly popular new feature of being able to request a bet is allowing punters to get as creative as they like for their online betting. The ability to create a bet is largely focused on football matches and from stats involved in them such as the number of corners, both teams to score and how many assists a named player in a match will make. You can throw things like this together, and as many as you want, into a single bet.

How to request a bet

The one thing that all of the different request a bet features across different bookmakers have in common is that you will have to go and hit up Twitter to request a price. Each bookmaker is naturally running a different hashtag for their request a bet feature so all that you would do is look for the specific hashtag and which handle to Tweet it to and just send it off. Generally what happens is that the bookmaker will then reply to your Tweet along with a link where you can go directly and place the bet.

Coral #YourCall

Coral are one of the purveyors of this and their version is called #Yourcall. On all Premier League, Championship, Champions League, La Liga and Serie A matches you can create a bet from the following markets: Match result, Both Teams To Score, Total Match Goals, Total Match Corners and Total Match Booking Points, plus you have the options based on named players in the match as well, such as shots, tackles, assists and a player to be carded. Coral also offer the feature on NBA Basketball matches including Money Line, Total Points, assists, rebounds, 3-point goals, blocked shots and steals.

Ladbrokes #GetAPrice

Ladbrokes also run a version of being able to request a bet. So there you can combine your own Match and Play Stats markets. You can pick your bet from a from a whole host of stats like assists, passes, shots, shots on target and tackles, or any combination. The Ladbrokes #GetAprice is available every week on all Premier League, Championship, La Liga, Serie A and Champions League matches. Basically, if you can’t find a market that you want, you can ask Ladbrokes to create it for you.

Paddy Power #AskPaddyPower

If you can think of a market that Paddy Power haven’t listed on their site then you can go and ask them to price it up for you. With Paddy Power whatever you can think up pretty much flies as they state that they will offer you up a price on virtually anything. So even if you think you have a crazy old creation going on, the chances are that Paddy Power will take a look at it and offer you something. Just Tweet them and find out!

William Hill #YourOdds

William Hill are another of the major online bookmakers to offer punters the chance to request a price on a wager of your creation. Again you can simply go and ask the bookmaker to price something up for you. There is a list of sports that William Hill have listed that will be covered by the #YourOdds feature, such as football and horse racing, but even if you are thinking outside of the list then there really is no harm in just asking anyway.

Back Bets Created By Others

What you will notice at bookmakers, such as at William Hill there are even dedicated sections for the special markets that punters have created already. So if you are lacking the time to go and create one of your own then you browse through other bets that have already been requested by and matched for punters and just strike a bet as you would on a regular sports betting market and make the most of those!

Ladbrokes punter lands successful 17-fold acca

Ladbrokes
It may well end up winning the Puskas Award. It will be talked about a long time in the future. Cristiano Ronaldo’s stunning overhead bicycle kick for Real Madrid in their Champions League quarter-final tie with Juventus was simply spectacular. Not only for the accuracy but for the timing of the leap and the connection. It will probably be remembered as his greatest ever goal when he hangs up his playing boots. For one punter at Ladbrokes that incredible strike was even more special because it landed them over £166,000 from a £10 stake. The punter in question had Real Madrid in a 17-fold accumulator of matches spread out over two weeks. Ronaldo’s strike helped move Real Madrid out to a 3-0 win in the match and it was just a small (but spectacular) part that bet which left the punter with a life-changing sum of money. The bet had begun with some action from the recent international break and late goals from both Chile and Bulgaria managed to keep the bet alive. Ronaldo was a key figure earlier inn this massive wager too as he produced two goals injury time to help Portugal beat Egypt in a friendly. With the midweek Champions League action in the bet, it was wrapped up with four successful Europa League wagers, with Arsenal, Atletico Madrid, Lazio and RB Leipzig all delivering. Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “There are still a couple of months to play out but we doubt we’ll see a win quite as substantial as this for the rest of the season.” BET IN FULL Denmark to beat Panama – 2/9 Uruguay to beat Czech Republic – 17/20 Brazil to beat Russia – 13/20 Bosnia & Herzegovina to beat Bulgaria – 23/20 Portugal to beat Egypt – 4/7 Mexico to beat Iceland – 17/20 Chile to beat Sweden – 13/8 Bulgaria to beat Kazakhstan – 4/11 Bayern Munich to beat Sevilla – 3/4 Barcelona to beat AS Roma – 4/15 Arsenal to beat CSKA Moscow – 19/50 Atletico Madrid to beat Sporting Lisbon – 1/3 Lazio to beat Red Bull Salzburg – 3/4 Austria to beat Slovenia – 4/5 RB Leipzig to beat Marseille – 17/20 Liverpool to beat Man City – 19/10 Real Madrid to beat Juventus – 19/10 TOTAL STAKE – £10 TOTAL RETURNS – £166,853.40

Tomlinson heads up Next X Factor Judge betting odds

Novelty Betting & Other Events Betting
With Cheryl Tweedy pretty much shutting the door on a return as an X Factor judge, there has been a rise in interest in just who will be sitting on the panel for the next season. According to odds at Ladbrokes, it is Louis Tomlinson and Rita Ora who are the favourites to get on there. Former Girls Aloud singer Tweedy had hinted earlier this year that she could return to the show but has since talked all of that down because of interests elsewhere. It is former One Direction member Tomlinson who has moved to 4/6 favourite with Ladbrokes* (betting odds taken at 6:16 p.m on April 4th, 2018) to get a permanent role. He was a guest judge back in 2015 so has some kind of history with the show. So too has Or who was on the panel in 2015 and after also coaching on The Voice, she is a pretty good fit for a seat this time around and is at 5/4 odds* (betting odds taken at 6:16 p.m on April 4th, 2018) to make a return to the show. Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “With Cheryl tied up to her BBC show punters are beginning to shun her return in favour of Louis or Rita.” X Factor judge betting odds* Louis Tomlinson – 4/6 Rita Ora – 5/4| Kylie Minogue – 2/1 Cheryl – 3/1 Craig David – 7/2 Gloria Estefan – 5/1 Mel B – 6/1 Robbie Williams – 6/1 Zayn Malik – 7/1 Lily Allen – 8/1 Louise Redknapp – 10/1
