Request a bet – how to make your own bet at the bookies

If you don't have a Twitter account then you can visit their Facebook Page and mention #BetYourWay and providing the details of your bet request.

Think up a bet and get it priced!

Now, punters are able to go and create a bet of their own liking by requesting a bet. Basically a punter selects options and asks the bookie to price it up. It is nice to be able to go and call the shots 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 your own 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.

The Twitter Trend

The one thing that all of the different request a bet features across different bookmakers have in common is that you can 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.

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!

Tyson Fury v Francesco Pianeta Boxing Winner Odds & Predictions

Sports Betting
Tyson Fury v Francesco Pianeta Predictions - August 18th, 2018 Tyson Fury is back again. The controversial British fighter is going into his second bout of the year as he tries to work his way back to the top of the sport. He goes into battle against Italy's Francesco Pianeta on Saturday night at Windsor Park, Belfast. This is just his second fight since that famous night in Dusseldorf in November 2015 when he beat Wladimir Klitschko to become world heavyweight champion.

Tyson Fury v Francesco Pianeta Winner Odds*

Tyson Fury 1/100 Francesca Pianeta 14/1 Draw 33/1 * (betting odds taken from August 16th, 2018 at 5:31 pm). Back in June, Fury went up against Sefer Seferi in a bit of a non-contest at the Manchester Arena. There was nothing much learned from that as his opponent was pulled from the fight in the fourth round. There had been plenty of showboating from Fury in the first couple of rounds but he delivered some heavy blows in the fourth and his Albanian opponent never got off his stool. This fight is on the undercard of the Carl Frampton v Luke Jackson bout for Saturday night. This could just end up being another non-contest for Fury, who is a massive odds-on favourite to collect the win. He is apparently intent on fighting three times this year so the opposition is not going to be all that stuff. We are looking for an early result again in this fight and Tyson Fury Round 1-5 in round group betting at William Hill appeals at 6/5 odds* (betting odds taken from August 16th, 2018 at 5:31 pm). He is taking on a two-time world title challenger in Pianeta. His big shots came against Wladimir Klitschko in 2013 and in 2015 against Ruslan Chagaev for World titles. He got stopped in both of those fights and the southpaw looks well beyond the prime of getting himself into big fights like that. The Italian carries a 28-3 career record with him into this one and this will be his first fight since June where he was beaten in a unanimous decision by Croatia’s Petar Milas.


There is just little chance that this is going to go the distance. For all of his antics, Fury can pack a punch and his opponent isn’t going to have the kind of defence that is going to stop Fury and we are backing the British fighter to get the win done in Round 5 for 7/1 odds* (betting odds taken from August 16th, 2018 at 5:31 pm).  

Carl Frampton v Luke Jackson Boxing Winner Odds & Prediction

Sports Betting
Carl Frampton v Luke Jackson Prediction - August 18th, 2018 Carl Frampton will step back into the ring this weekend as he takes on Luke Jackson at Windsor Park. This will be Frampton’s first outing since getting his hands on the interim WBO featherweight belt back in April where he got the better of Nonito Donaire in a unanimous points decision. Frampton will be putting the belt on the line on the weekend.

Carl Frampton v Luke Jackson odds*

Carl Frampton 1/66 Luke Jackson 14/1 Draw 33/1 * (betting odds taken from August 16th, 2018 at 5:31 pm). The 31-year-old seems to be singing a merry tune at the moment about how fit he is and what kind of shape he has trained his way into. Frampton is a strong odds-on favourite to win this bout and this is just one of those stepping-stone fights that he has to go through. If he puts the win on the board over Jackson then it puts him closer to get getting a shot against someone like Oscar Valdez or Josh Warrington. The risk is always there of course because defeat would leave his career in tatters. But Frampton is 15/8 to get this done inside the first six rounds with William Hill* (betting odds taken from August 16th, 2018 at 5:31 pm). There is the other option of 5/4 on him completing the win over the second half of the fight with the bookmaker* (betting odds taken from August 16th, 2018 at 5:31 pm). Frampton takes a 25-1 career record into the fight with him, the sole defeat coming in his rematch against Leo Santa Cruz in January 2017. He has taken back to back unanimous decisions over Horacio Garcia and then Nonito Donaire since then. You can back the fight to go the distance at 7/4 odds with William Hill* (betting odds taken from August 16th, 2018 at 5:31 pm). Who is Luke Jackson? Well, he certainly is not a big name opponent that European fans would have been excited to see Frampton go up against. The Australian will be going into his first ever fight outside of his home country with the Aussie holding a 16-0 career record. This then is the biggest bout of his career and his last bout was against Humberto de Santiago back in September last year. Four of his last five wins have been by a unanimous decision.


Frampton should be on a different level to his opponent, but we are still going to go with the option of rounds 7-12 in round group betting at William Hill. This is a bit of an unknown entity that Frampton is going up against here, but a solid performance, working his way through the bout should get the job done. Frampton Round 7-12 at 5/4 odds is our prediction* (betting odds taken from August 16th, 2018 at 5:31 pm).

Royal Ascot 2018 Top Trainer and Jockey Betting – Horse Racing Odds June 19-23

Horse Racing Betting
There are a number of specials surrounding next week's Royal Ascot. The most popular are traditionally the markets surrounding Top Trainer and Top Jockey, though there are odds-on favourites in both. Aidan O'Brien has been Top Trainer at the Royal meeting for the past four years and a powerful team has been assembled to ensure the master of Ballydoyle takes the lion's share of the prize money again. O'Brien amassed a record tally of 28 Group or Grade 1 winners in 2017 and has already sent out two UK classic winners this season in Saxon Warrior and Forever Together. Rhododendron, U S Navy Flag, Hydrangea and Order Of St George are just a few of the stars that the Irish trainer will be sending over. Coral are among those layers offering 1/2 that O'Brien is top dog again this year but the Cashel-based team is not the only one expecting the winners to flow at Royal Ascot next week. John Gosden will run Cracksman and also has high hopes for the likes of Without Parole, Stream Of Stars, Lah Ti Dar and Stradivarius. The yard has been in cracking form so the general 7/2 will make plenty of appeal. Sheikh Mohammed's Godolphin team won the Epsom Derby a couple of weeks ago but the operation's leading trainer, Charlie Appleby, is as big as 14/1 to be Top Trainer at Royal Ascot and Sir Michael Stoute is 16/1 in places.

Royal Ascot 2018 Top Trainer Betting

Aidan O'Brien 8/11 John Gosden 7/2 Charlie Appleby 14/1 Sir Michael Stoute 16/1 Mark Johnston 25/1 William Haggas 25/1 Roger Varian 33/1 Wesley Ward 33/1 Clive Cox 50/1 Saeed bin Suroor 50/1 The Top Jockey betting is shaping up to be a match between Ryan Moore and Frankie Dettori. Moore holds the record for most number of wins at a single Royal Ascot meeting, riding nine in 2015. He's been Top Jockey at the meeting for the past four seasons but Dettori has won 50 races down the years at Royal Ascot, including that famous 'Magnificent Seven' in 1996. The pair are backed by the two stables that are likely to dominate proceedings so will have plenty of ammunition and are 8/11 (William Hill) and 7/2 (Betway) respectively to top the charts in 2018. Godolphin's retained jockeys, James Doyle and William Buick, are respectively a best 10/1 and 12/1 but you can get 20/1 about Hamdam Al Maktoum's retained jockey Jim Crowley, even though he has a possible plum ride on Battaash in the King's Stand Stakes. Champion jockey Silvestre De Sousa is 33/1 with several bookmakers.

Ryan Moore 8/11 Frankie Dettori 7/2 James Doyle 10/1 William Buick 12/1 Oisin Murphy 16/1 Jim Crowley 20/1 Adam Kirby 25/1 Andrea Atzeni 33/1 Silvester De Sousa 33/1 Jamie Spencer 40/1 Paul Hanagan 66/1

Who will be the biggest World Cup 2018 flops?

World Cup 2018 Betting
We look at the 2018 World Cup and try to identify the teams who are most likely to be disappointing in Russia We’ve identified eight potential winners of the 2018 World Cup, although seven of those sides are going to end up disappointed somewhere along the way, whether it’s in the final, an earlier knockout round or the group stage.

Big 2014 failures

There were some notable flops in the 2014 World Cup and none bigger than reigning champions Spain who lost 5-1 against the Netherlands and 2-0 against Chile to bomb out of the competition after just two games. Italy and England were also notable casualties in Group D as Uruguay and Costa Rica went through instead, while Portugal missed out in Group G at the expense of the USA, having lost 4-0 to Germany in the first match.

Portugal vulnerbale?

Perhaps PORTUGAL could be vulnerable once again, despite the fact that they arrive as European champions after a triumph in France two years ago. It’s worth noting that Fernando Santos’ team didn’t actually win a game in normal time until their semi-final against Wales and relied heavily on the magic of Cristiano Ronaldo to haul them through to the final where they edged out France in extra-time after a defensive performance. This time around, Portugal face Spain in their opening Group B match before tricky encounters against Iran and Morocco. A defeat against their Iberian rivals could put the pressure on them to win their remaining matches and Portgual are 3/1 underdogs at William Hill * (Betting Odds taken on June 13th, 2018 at 4.18 a.m.) for that match. [bbutton bookmaker="William-Hill"]

Hosts could be in trouble

Hosts RUSSIA will be hoping that their advantage as home nation will help them make the last sixteen as a bare minimum, although they don’t look particularly well-equipped to go through despite being drawn in a favourable group. Saudi Arabia couldn’t be easier opponents in their first game, although Uruguay should have too much class and Egypt could be the team to extinguish their World Cup hopes thanks to their attacking genius of Mohamed Salah. Russia are 9/4 not to qualify from Group A* (Betting Odds taken from June 13th, 2018 at 4.18 a.m.).

World Cup 2018 outright winner odds*

Brazil 4/1 Germany 9/2 Spain 6/1 France 11/2 Argentina 9/1 Belgium 11/1 England 16/1 Portugal 25/1 Uruguay 25/1 Croatia 33/1 Columbia 40/1 Russia 40/1 Poland 66/1 Denmark 100/1 Mexico 100/1 Switzerland 125/1 Sweden 150/1 Peru 150/1 Bar 200/1 * (Betting Odds taken from William Hill June 13th, 2018 at 4.18 a.m.)

Are Argentina strong enough?

We’re not sure ARGENTINA look particularly rock solid either, despite being listed as one of the favourites for the 2018 World Cup. The South American side made heavy weather of qualifying for the tournament and they seem particularly top heavy when it comes to the squad, with Sergio Aguero, Lionel Messi and Gonzalo Higuain among the attacking options up top. Their group includes Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria, none of whom are a pushover and a failure to beat the Icelanders in the opening game could mean a crunch clash with the Croatians and a runner-up position will mean they face the winner of Group C which could be France.

Will Three Lions bottle it again?

ENGLAND have been big tournament bottlers for several years, although we think they’ll come through to the last sixteen and are 2/1 odds at William Hill to go no further. Perhaps it’s going to be COLOMBIA who flop this time around. They might not have James Rodriguez in the red-hot form which saw the South American side light up the 2014 World Cup and Radamel Falcao’s best days are probably behind him too.  

Coleman favourite in Next Swansea Manager betting odds

Swansea will be on the hunt for a new manager in the summer after it was confirmed that Carlos Carvalhal won’t be staying with them. When he came in, the former Sheffield Wednesday boss looked as if he was going to be their saviour as he injected some new life into the club when he arrived just after Christmas. When he took over the Swansea were adrift at the bottom of the league on just 13 points. Their home from in particular improved drastically and they won four straight home games through January and March to look as if they would ease their way to top-flight safety. However, it all fell apart with the Swans going into the final day of the regular season without a win in eight-games (D3 L5). Swansea scored in just two of those eight games and with pending relegation, with the Swans needing a ten-goal swing, a win and for Southampton to lose on the final day of the season to get safe, the club are parting ways with the Portuguese manager. Swansea took 20 points from their seventeen games before heading into their final match of the season under Carvalhal. It was really a home loss against Southampton, in what was a huge survival battle in Swansea’s penultimate game that undid everything. That really was the tipping point that may well have prompted Carvalhal's departure. News that he was going certainly woke up betting in the Next Swansea Manager market and former Wales boss Chris Coleman the early 2/1 favourite at William Hill to take over. Coleman’s stint with Sunderland didn’t go all that well as the Black Cats suffered their second straight relegation to fall down to League One next season. But because of his work with Wales, Coleman will still be a hot ticket for a club and would be a popular arrival were he to go to Swansea. Ostersunds boss Graham Potter has been linked with just about every available opening in the top two tiers of English football and the could be ready for a move in the summer. But the Championship is a notoriously tough place for managers. The Swans though would likely be one of the more appealing options for an in-coming manger in the division. Retiring Swansea legend Leon Britton has had his name in the hat at 8/1 odds with William Hill* (betting odds taken at 11:31 p.m. on May 11th, 2018) but while he is a popular figure at the Liberty Stadium, he doesn’t have the managerial experience. Bobby Martinez is at 14/1 and if things don’t go too well for Belgium at the World Cup in the summer, could he find himself back in club management next season in South Wales? Other early names that have been touted around the William Hill Next Swansea Manager market are Alan Pardew, Cameron Toshack and Derek McInnes.

2018 2000 Guineas Winner Odds & Predictions – May 5th, 2018

Horse Racing Betting
The first Classic of the season arrives on the weekend as the 2000 Guineas takes place at Newmarket. The famous 1-mile race is one of five Classics across the course of the season and it is also the first leg of the equally famous Triple Crown. To win the Triple Crown a horse has to win this, followed by the Derby and then the St Leger all in the same season. It’s an epic feat to pull off an unfortunately not a lot of horses chase it down anymore. The 2018 edition of the 2000 Guineas is the 210th running of the race so it is one that is absolutely steeped in rich history. Here we take a preview of what is to come on Saturday, May 5th, 2018.

2017 2,000 Guineas Review

Irish Thoroughbred Churchill turned up at Newmarket last year and took the win for Aidan O’Brien. Churchill had gone off as the 6/4 favourite with Ryan Moore in the saddle and duly delivered by a length over Barney Roy. He moved to the front over one furlong out and just held his ground very well and never looked in trouble from there.

2018 2,000 Guineas Winner Odds*

Gustav Klimt 5/2, Saxon Warrior 4/1, Masar 9/2, Elarqam 5/1, Expert Eye 9/1, Roaring Lion 16/1, James Garfield 16/1, Headway 25/1, bar 33/1* (betting odds taken on May 4th, 2018 at 3:12 a.m.)

2018 2,000 Guineas Preview

Aidan O’Brien who has won two of the last three editions of the race is back for another full-on assault of the 2000 Guineas. He has two of the leading three entries for the race, but his main challenger is Gustav Klimt who is the 5/2 odds-on favourite at William Hill* (betting odds taken on May 4th, 2018 at 3:12 a.m.). He had a run at Newmarket last season in winning the bet365 Superlative Stakes as race favourite. His renewal this season was at Leopardstown in mid-April and he cruised to a strong win over Imaging in the 2000 Guineas Trial Stakes. Masar has been taking plenty of backing through the week in the build up to the 2018 renewal and he is carrying form and trainer Charlie Appleby is as well. Masar really raised the stakes at Newmarket back in April as he absolutely destroyed the field in the bet365 Craven Stakes, taking down White Mocha by nine lengths. It was as powerful of a run as you're likely to see this season and that naturally set punters on high alert and at the 9/2 odds with William Hill* (betting odds taken on May 4th, 2018 at 3:12 a.m.) he is very handily priced. Aiden O’Brian’s Saxon Warrior sandwiches the two in the betting market. He has gone three for three for O’Brien. The Japanese raider has three wins from three career outings and even just a couple of months ago he was up at the head of the market. But things have shifted since then because of the strong performances that Gustav Klimt and Masar have shown this season, while Saxon Warrior has been held back for this. This will be his first outing at Newmarket though. Elarqam won his two outings back in September, one of them at Newmarket in the Tattersalls STakes. He is the son of the great Frankel and looks set to have a very strong one-mile career ahead of him. There is a lot to like and he has a good chance of getting in the frame for this one. Looking down the list of runners for some big each way value it is hard to look past James Garfield who will have Frankie Dettori in the saddle. He is a real scraper and showed very well in winning the Greenham at Newbury. This is a step up in distance though but a tasty each way punt for a super fit horse.


Aidan O’Brien is showing a strong hand with Gustav Klimt and Saxon Warrior. Of the two Gustav Klimt could well have the edge after his impressive run at Leopardstown. But there is also a tremendous amount to like about Elarqam to challenge well inside the top three.

William Hill #YourOdds Feature allows punters to ask for bets

William Hill
#YourOdds at William Hill allows punters to come up with a plan for a bet that may not exist on the site and get a price on it. So it allows a little bit of creativity for the end user because you can create a wager out of different stat-based options on a football match and basically just ask. After all, you know the old famous saying, there's no harm in asking. So if on the site they don't offer a price anywhere for a specific bet that you want, you can get on Twitter with the hashtag #YourOdds and ask them. It is pretty much as straightforward and as simple as that.

How it Works

You will have to be a registered customer will with William Hill of course if you want to not just ask for a bet, but strike it if they offer you the odds back. Once you have created a bet of your choice then it's the asking stage. Just as an example of this, if in a Sunderland v Newcastle match you think that is going to be over two goals and 11 corners in the match which the Mackems win, but this outcome isn’t priced up on the site, you can ask.

Hyeon Chung v Roger Federer Australian Open Winner Odds and Prediction

Hyeon Chung
What a tournament it has been from South Korea Hyeon Chung. He has powered his way into the semi-final of the Australian Open with some style. The youngster, who won the inaugural Next Gen ATP Finals at the back end of last year, sailed through to the semi-finals of the Grand Slam with a straight-sets victory over the unseeded American Tennys Sandgren. 21-year-old Chung becomes the youngest player to reach a Grand Slam semi final for eight years now. He is ranked down at 58th in the world and therefore is the lowest-ranked player to get to the final four in Melbourne for 14 years. This hasn’t just been a case of him getting through matches against lower ranked opponents because he has overcome some top talent. He ditched the fourth seed Alexander Zverev out of the competition in a huge upset in the third round and he was waiting to deliver an even bigger upset down the line. In the fourth round of competition, he was paired up against six-time Australian Open title winner Novak Djokovic. Chung took him down in three sets. It was a huge win for the South Korean as he dumped Djokovic out, although they Serbian clearly wasn’t at ease with his troubled elbow at all in the match. Still, Chung had to win the match and he did and then he made easy work of Sandgren. Roger Federer made it through to his 14th Australian Open semi-final as he moved past Tomas Berdych in straight sets. It means that the 36-year-old has moved through the tournament without dropping a set so far and that’s important because it keeps him fresh. It has been a fairly simple exercise for him in Melbourne as he goes in search of what would be his 20th Grand Slam title. Will the master tame the student?

Federer v Chung head to head

This will be the first ever match up between the two players.

Federer v Chung Winner Odds

Federer 1/7, Chung 9/2* (betting odds taken on January 24th at 10:37 p.m.).


It has been fantastic stuff from Chung and he is clearly a future star. However, something that is so precious on occasions like this is experience. Federer has it in spades and his ability to keep calm in situations is likely going to keep the young challenger at bay. Federer is the master at coming up with tactics to suit the occasions and Chung may leave the tournament, but with his head held high still. You wouldn't put it past Feds to roll out a straight sets victory at William Hill for 5/6*(betting odds taken on January 24th at 10:37 p.m.).

Kane stays favourite in Premier League Top Scorer Betting

Premier League Betting
Despite being the current top scorer in the Premier League by two clear goals, Mo Salah isn’t outright favourite to go all the way this term and collect the Golden Boot. The Liverpool hot shot is the 7/2 second favourite in the William Hill Premier League Top goalscorer market behind Tottenham’s Harry Kane. But the Liverpool man is having such a fantastic season, has looked clinical and now the rumours are that Real Madrid have the Egyptian on their radar. But he is playing second fiddle to Kane in the Golden Boot odds, but that will just make him more appealing to punters. Interestingly, at the time of writing, Mo Salah's 14 goals have come from sixteen Premier League appearances. Kane has netted his ten goals this season from fifteen Premier League games, but the Spurs man has amassed more minutes on the pitch than Salah has done for Liverpool. Eight of Kane’s league goals this season have been inside the box.

Premier League Top Scorer Odds

Harry Kane 7/4, Mohamed Salah 7/2, Sergio Aguero 9/2, Romelu Lukaku 6/1, Gabriel Jesus 12/1, Alvaro Morata 12/1, Raheem Sterling 16/1, Alexandre Lacazette 25/1, bar 66/1 So it’s all pretty even, but the stand out stats comes from the shooting accuracy. Salah’s accuracy has been a fantastic 64% so far this season because his fourteen league goals have come from just 53 shots on target. In comparison, Kane has fired off 69 shots on target return two goals fewer and that has left Kane with a 54% shot accuracy this season. So despite Kane having won the last two Premier League golden boots, he has a challenge on his hands here. Mohamed Salah 14 Harry Kane 12 Raheem Sterling 11 Sergio Agüero 10 Romelu Lukaku 10 Álvaro Morata 9 Wayne Rooney 9 Gabriel Jesus 8 Alexandre Lacazette 8 Jamie Vardy 7 Breaking it down, Salah has now managed a goal every 97 minutes of play on average, while Kane is averaging a goal every 124 minutes of action. That's big difference over the course of the season if that is sustained. Manchester City's Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus all trump the accuracy that Harry Kane has turned out. But not Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku who is now averaging a goal every 162 minutes, that’s despite him having a 60% success rate from shots on target. So the output of Salah has been staggering and at 7/2 with William Hill he is well worth a flutter with Liverpool always going to be a positive, attacking side, whereas Spurs have already looked at times this season that they are running out of steam a little bit. But you can’t dismiss the scoring threats for the Manchester City players in the Golden Boot race either because of the way that the Citizens are playing and there is every chance that Aguero, who already has three spot kicks converted this season, is going to be in the mix.

Champions League 2018 Last 16 – Betting Odds & Predictions

Champions League Betting
History was made in the UEFA Champions League this season with five English teams making it through the round of sixteen.That was the first time in the history of the tournament that five teams from the same nation had made it through to that stage. So how many of them will march their way through to the quarter finals? Chelsea, who were the only ones of the English sides to not win their group get the toughest draw of the lot as they have to play host to Barcelona, while Tottenham will be tested against Italian champions Juventus. Manchester City, after receiving the most favourable draw that they could have gotten against FC Basel are now 3/1 outright favourites wtih William Hill to collect the title. Looking ahead to an interesting betting stat ahead of the round of sixteen, the group winner (who are the teams who play the second leg of the tie at home) have progressed in 72.3% of round of 16 ties since the current competition format was introduced. Champions League Round of 16 2018 Infographic

Juventus v Tottenham (13 February and 7 March)

A tough draw for Tottenham, especially in the first leg in Turin. But the Lilywhites showed that they are contenders by taking four points away from their two group stage meetings with Real Madrid. Tottenham will be underdogs at 11/4 with William Hill to win the first leg, with the Old Lady in at even money. This will be the first time that these two clubs have met competitively and Juventus are 4/6 odds on favourites To Qualify from the tie.

Basel v Manchester City (13 February and 7 March)

Manchester City got the best draw that they really could have asked for and they should find themselves getting through to the quarter finals. They are now the outright favourites to win the title because of how the draw for the last sixteen has panned out. This will be the first meeting between the two clubs and for Basel, it will be somewhat of familiar territory for them as they were up against Manchester United in the group stage, losing 3-0 at Old Trafford but winning 1-0 at home. City are 1/12 odds on favourites to go and qualify from this tie.

Porto v Liverpool (14 February and 6 March)

There is a little history between these two but not too much. They were together in the 2000/01 UEFA Cup quarter finals and in the 2007/08 Champions League league group stage. From those four matches, Liverpool won both of their home games against the Portuguese outfit, while drawing the two away games against them. The last time that Porto faced an English side they hammered Leicester on match day six of last season’s group stage. Liverpool have their big attacking threat in Mo Salah, but Porto’s Vincent Aboubakar could trouble the Reds. Still, the Premier League side are 2/5 odds on at William Hill to qualify.

Sevilla v Manchester United (21 February and 13 March)

This is a tricky tie for the Red Devils as they will have seen Sevilla collect two draws against Liverpool in the group stage of the competition. Sevilla are a good home side and this will be a good test for the Red Devils. Sevilla, of course, won three consecutive Europa League titles between 2013/14 and 2015/16 before United swooped in and took it last season. They have a good goalscoring threat in Wissam Ben Yedder, but the strength of the English Premier League side is expected to win out.

Real Madrid v PSG (14 February and 6 March)

This is the heavyweight tie of the round and this has happened because Real Madrid only finished second in their group to Tottenham. Things are even from the previous meetings with two wins and two draws each from their six previous comings together. This should be an epic affair and it will be interesting to see how PSG, who invested heavily in the summer handle the reigning European champions. PSG are 4/5 odds on favourites at William Hill To Qualify and you can’t argue with that. Real Madrid haven’t looked anywhere near as strong this season as last and are there for the taking as Tottenham proved.

Shakhtar Donetsk v Roma (21 February and 13 March)

While this may be the tie that gets the least attention, both of these will be happy enough with the draw. The two of them have met before as they were paired up in the 2010/11 round of 16 and it was the Ukrainians who won through 6-2 on aggregate on that occasion. Roma held off Chelsea for the top spot in their group campaign while Shakhtar battled through behind Manchester City in theirs. This may be a pretty even tie and Shakhtar are a tough side to get the better of on home soil but at the end of the day, the superior quality of the Italians sees them go as 4/9 favourites at William Hill to qualify.

Chelsea v Barcelona (20 February and 14 March)

The rough draw that Chelsea feared has happened. Because a team can’t face a side from their own nation or someone who they were within the group stage in the round of sixteen, then the options as to who Chelsea could face were really limited. The Blues famously got past Barcelona on their way to winning the title in 2012 and they beat Barcelona 5-4 in the 2004/05 round of sixteen as well. The Blues actually hold a head to head lead against the Spaniards in UEFA Competition with four wins to the three posted by Barcelona. Lionel Messi has incidentally never scored in eight previous appearances against Chelsea but still, the Catalans have been in great form this season and are 3/10 odds on favourites To Qualify, with Chelsea 5/2 underdogs at William Hill. The Blues start at home to make this even more difficult.

Bayern Munich v Besiktas (20 February and 14 March)

The German powerhouses will be happy enough with this tie. Besiktas were one of the surprising group stage winners while Bayern could only finish second behind PSG in their group. Still, Munich are going as very strong 1/8 odds on favourites to qualify from the tie. The only previous time that these two game together was in the 1997/98 group stage with Bayern winning both of those games in the tie by a 2-0 scoreline.

Champions League Winner Odds

Manchester City 3/1, Bayern Munich 9/2, Paris St Germain 5/1, Barcelona 15/2, Real Madrid 8/1, Manchester United 14/1, Liverpool 16/1, Juventus 16/1, Tottenham 25/1, Chelsea 33/1, Roma 33/1, bar 100/1

Champions League Winner Odds price changes

Of the sides going into the round of sixteen the team who saw the biggest odds movement because of the draw was Shakhtar Donetsk as they line up against Roma which is a draw that was favourable to them both really considering what they could have gotten instead like Real Madrid or Bayern Munich. Of the English teams left in the competition, Man City were at 5/1 before the draw and have been slashed to 3/1 to win the tournament while Liverpool took an even bigger cut coming in from 25/1 to 16/1 thanks to their draw against Porto. Both PSG and Real Madrid fdrifted because of their impending coming together, while Tottenham and Chelsea both drifted as well. The Blues were the English side who drifted the most, from 22/1 to 33/1. The team with the biggest odds drift overall after the draw was FC Basel after being paired against Manchester City.
