William Hill have slashed their odds that Liverpool will not be handed a Premier League points deduction this season from 1/3 to 1/6
Hill’s now quote 7/2 from 9/4 that they will receive a penalty.
“Punters seem convinced that Liverpool will not have to face a points deduction and it does seem very rare for bigger clubs to suffer the same sort of fate as smaller fry like Portsmouth and Southampton, so we have lengthened the odds that Liverpool will have one or more points deducted this season” William Hill spokesman Graham Sharpe told betrescue.com
Meanwhile, Stan James shortened the odds on Liverpool being relegated from 16/1 to 12s as punters wrestle with the possibility of a nine-point penalty for the Reds should the Club be forced into administration as a result of the current case in the High Court.
Head of PR Charlie McCann at Stan James told betrescue.com : “On the face of it there seems little chance of Liverpool going into administration, but punters obviously felt that 16/1 was too big for a side with only one rather fortunate win to their name in the Premier League this season. Success in the High Court and victory at Goodison on Sunday and it will be crisis what crisis, but 16s was too big for punters.”
