Conference Premier 2014/15 Preview: The ‘Other’ Premier League

Conference Premier 2014/15 Preview: The ‘Other’ Premier League

Head of In Play Mark Swarbrick discusses…

As the stars of the game take a rest after the culmination of the World Cup, the players in the ‘other’ Premier League, the Conference Premier, start back in pre-season training, their aim to gain promotion back into the Football League.

For those dropping down from League 2 last year the omens for a swift return aren’t great, the last team to go straight back up being Carlisle in 2005. However both of last years relegated teams do look on paper at least to have a better than normal chance of a return. Bristol Rovers (5/1) would be seen as the bigger of the two clubs, and will have decent levels of support from the terraces, and Torquay United (12/1) who have the services of their former captain turned manager Chris Hargreaves. Hargreaves led the team out of the conference only 5 years ago, scoring at Wembley to send the Gulls back into league Football, and it’s that kind of experience at this level which can make such a difference.

It’s a league littered with former Football League clubs looking to return to their former glories, indeed over half the teams taking part in this year’s league have seen league Football action over the years. Topping the list, Grimsby Town (9/1) and Lincoln City (20/1) each spent over 100 years each in the upper echelons of the English League system.

Early money for this season’s tournament has come for Eastleigh (10/1) who have come up to the Conference Premier after winning the Conference South title last year by 5 points. They have made some eye catching signings in the close season so far including the striking duo of James Constable from Oxford (12 goals in League 2) and Jack Midson from AFC Wimbledon (15 goals in League 2). With the potential firepower of these two at this level, and with a backer who is reputedly spending £1.5m on upgrading the facilities at the stadium, Eastleigh look sure to be a team to follow in the coming months.

With 3 weeks to go there will be plenty of comings and goings at this level of Football as teams continue to assemble their squads, and I for one can’t wait for the start of the season on August 9th.

Wonderful World Cup –Twenty Two Million Bets Placed – William Hill Hail The Meteoric 6,598% Rise

Wonderful World Cup –Twenty Two Million Bets Placed – William Hill Hail The Meteoric 6,598% Rise

William Hill can report over 22 million bets were placed on the World Cup through all their channels, making it by far the most successful event in betting history.

14.3% of all bets placed on who would win the World Cup were on a German victory, compared to 7.6% on Brazil & 6.9% on England.

The biggest winning bet on Germany was a £147,000 wager at odds of 5/2 (after Germany defeated France in the quarter final). The gutsy punter will collect a cheque for £514,500 today.

The 2014 World Cup will be seen as the first truly mobile football betting tournament with over 462,000 bets placed via devices on World Cup Final day, an increase of 6,598% on the 2010 World Cup Final.

“Despite England’s poor performance, the figures for the World Cup are jaw dropping,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “In just two minutes on Sunday we took more than we did over the 24hrs of the World Cup Final in 2010 – the rise of mobile has been meteoric.”

Mobile Betting Boom -

The 2014 World Cup was the first tournament that went Mobile mad.

On World Cup Final day 2010 William Hill took 6,899 bets from mobile devices – On Sunday, William Hill  took 462,139 bets via mobile device peaking at 3,766 a minute.

Best bet -

22-year-old music student, Paul Wheatley who lives in Altrincham, Cheshire was the only William Hill customer to win any money on the shock correct score result in the Germany/Brazil match. Not one of the other 120,000 correct score bets came close to matching Paul’s 80p wager at 300/1 that Germany would be ahead by five goals to nil at half time. The wager returned £240.80.

*121,026 correct score bets were placed on the Germany/Brazil match

Number Of Countries To Bet On The World Cup -

2014 Really Was A True World Cup: William Hill accepted World Cup bets from 115 different countries throughout the tournament.

Northern Irish are best bettors -

William Hill Bet Nation Website graded the success of punters from across Great Britain – It appears that the Northern Irish are the most successful followed by Wales, Scotland and finally England.

Best result for the punters -

The match that the world had been waiting four years for kicked off on the 12th June as World Cup hosts, Brazil faced Croatia.

Brazil were already incredibly well backed when William Hill announced they were enhancing the odds of Brazil winning to Even money.

A couple of dubious refereeing decisions later, punters were boosted by the biggest total payout of the World Cup.

Best result for the bookmakers –

After winning the opening game, William Hill customers were tempted into backing Brazil when they went up against Mexico.

Nearly £4.5m worth of wagers were staked with the 0-0 draw proving to be the worst result of the tournament for punters.

The match was one of eight that failed to see a goal (in 90 minutes) and thus qualified for William Hill’s bore draw refund. In total, William Hill have refunded £703,285 worth of free bets on the back of 0-0 draws.

Largest single bet –

The largest single William Hill wager was placed in William Hill’s American sports book in Nevada, when a gutsy punter placed $350,000 on Argentina defeating Iran during the group stages.

With the game tightly poised at 0-0 with mere seconds to go, Lionel Messi popped up and scooped the lucky customer $30,000 profit.

Other bets have seen £140,000 staked on Germany at 5/2 to win the World Cup after their win against France in the quarter final, a wager of £146,000 on Costa Rica to defeat Greece in 90 minutes (which they did not do) and £20,000 on a Brazil vs Argentina final at 8/1.

Biggest liability wager -

In November of 2013, a William Hill online punter placed the two most unlikely bets of the World Cup.

He placed £300 each way on Australia winning the World Cup at 2500/1 and £200 e/w at the same price for Iran to win it.

As unlikely as the bets were, they had William Hill suitably worried as the Australia bet would have paid out £1.5m and the Iran bet would have paid out £1m.

The surprise package of the tournament were Costa Rica, who were the subject of a €50 wager from a client in Malta at 2500/1 at the start of the tournament. When they were eventually knocked out, they were 33/1 to win the World Cup.

Euro 2016: 3/1 Germany; 4/1 Spain; 5/1 France; 10/1 Belgium; 10/1 Holland; 11/1 Italy; 12/1 England; 16/1 Portugal; 20/1 Russia; 50/1 BAR.

World Cup 2018: 5/1 Germany; 7/1 Argentina; 7/1 Spain; 8/1 Brazil; 10/1 France 12/1 Belgium; 12/1 Netherlands; 16/1 England; 16/1 Italy; 16/1 Russia; 25/1 Colombia; 25/1 Portugal; 33/1 Chile; 50/1 BAR.

Opta Facts – World Cup Final

Opta Facts – World Cup Final

Germany are set to play in their eighth World Cup final; more than any other nation. They have won three titles.

They have won just one of their last four appearances in the World Cup final (1990 v Argentina).

Germany have now reached a World Cup final in each of the last seven decades (1954, 1966, 1974, 1982 and 86, 1990, 2002 and now 2014).

Argentina are set to play in their fifth World Cup final, they have won two and lost two of the previous four.

This will be the third World Cup final between Germany and Argentina. They met in successive finals in 1986 and 1990, with each team lifting the title (3-2 Argentina in 1986, 1-0 Germany in 1990).

No other fixture has been played as often in a World Cup final as Germany v Argentina.

This is the 10th time that teams from Europe and South America face each other in the final. Seven of these finals have been won by the teams from South America.

Both sides will face off for the seventh time at the World Cup, the only fixture that has been played as often is Brazil v Sweden (seven times).

Germany have won three and lost just one of the previous six World Cup encounters with Argentina (D2). Germany also won the penalty shootout in 2006 against Argentina.

Germany had eliminated Argentina from the 2006 World Cup (1-1 AET and 4-2 on penalties in the quarter-final) and from the 2010 World Cup (4-0 in the quarter-final).

The 4-0 defeat in 2010 is Argentina’s heaviest World Cup defeat in the last 40 years (0-4 v Netherlands in 1974).

Argentina have won nine out of 20 games against Germany (D5 L6), though. The last meeting (August 2012, Frankfurt) saw Argentina win 3-1.

No side have kept as many clean sheets as Argentina in the 2014 World Cup (four, Germany have three).

Argentina are yet to concede a goal in the knock-out stages at this tournament (despite playing extra-time in two of their three games).

On the last five occasions that Germany have failed to score in a World Cup match, they have lost.

The last time Germany scored in a World Cup match and lost was the 1994 quarter final defeat to Bulgaria (1-2).

Germany are unbeaten in 17 internationals (W12, D5).

Argentina haven’t been trailing in any of their six games at the 2014 World Cup, Germany just eight minutes (v Ghana).

Argentina have won four out of five penalty shootouts at the World Cup, Germany won four out of four (including the one against Argentina in 2006).

Miroslav Klose has scored more World Cup goals than any other player in history and as many as the entire current Argentinian squad (16).

Only Lothar Matthäus (25) has played more World Cup games than Klose (23, as many as Paolo Maldini).

Klose is the only player in both squads who has already played in a World Cup final (2002, 0-2 v Brazil).

Argentina’s Angel di Maria and Marcos Rojo lead the way in terms of crosses attempted from open play, with Rojo’s haul of 25 so far bettered only by team-mate di Maria (32).

Thomas Müller has played a hand in 16 World Cup goals in 12 appearances at the finals (10 goals and six assists).

Müller (2010 and 2014) and Klose (2002 and 2006) are the only players in history to score 5+ goals at consecutive World Cup tournaments.

Müller is the first-ever Golden Boot winner to reproduce his number of goals at the following World Cup (five goals in 2010, five in 2014).

Müller could also become the first player ever to win the Golden Boot at successive World Cups.

Lionel Messi has been the most creative player at World Cup 2014, setting up a tournament-high 21 goal-scoring chances for team-mates.

Messi has embarked on a tournament-high 65 dribbles so far, completing (another-high) 39 of them.

No German player has created more chances for their teammates in the 2014 World Cup than Mesut Özil (15).

Barcelona midfielder Javier Mascherano has attempted a competition-high 509 passes so far.

Mascherano has also made the most tackles so far – 28.

Andre Schürrle has scored three times in just 156 minutes of action so far at this World Cup.

Only Tim Howard (27) has made more saves in the competition than Manuel Neuer (23).

Lionel Messi has scored five World Cup goals to date, but none of them in the knockout stages.

Angel di Maria or Sami Khedira will become the 10th player to win both the Champions League and the World Cup in the same season. Seven of the previous nine have been German (Bayern Munich 1974) along with Christian Karembeu in 1998 and Roberto Carlos in 2002.

Awesome Altrincham Student – Only Correct Punter In The World!

Awesome Altrincham Student – Only Correct Punter In The World!

The world is still reeling from Germany’s demolition of the World Cup’s host nation and the shocking nature of the result is highlighted in the fact that not a single punter out of more than 120,000 who tried managed to predict the correct scoreline with Britain’s biggest bookmaker William Hill. 7-1 was a 500/1 shot but not even those lofty odds could tempt any punters to part with their cash, although there was one solitary punter who managed to predict the halftime correct score of 5-0 at 300/1.

The winning punter was a student from Altrincham who wagered just 80p on the halftime result.

“For the price of a tin of beans our student will be living off a slightly inflated budget for the next couple of weeks,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “Not one of our customers managed to predict the correct score in the match – which is the first time in recent World Cup history.”

Miroslav Klose broke Ronaldo’s World Cup goalscoring record although his fellow countryman Thomas Muller is hot on his heels already. At just 24 years old and with 10 World Cup goals to his name, he is 6/1 to overtake Klose’s record (whatever that may be after Sunday).

Germany are 4/6 to win the World Cup with Argentina 5/2 and Holland 4/1.

6/1 - Thomas Muller to overtake Miroslav Klose at the top of the World Cup scoring chart at any point in his career
