Layers counting cost of Terry strike
Hills were licking their wounds on Monday night after a gamble on John Terry to score the first goal was landed when the 36-year-old netted in Chelsea’s 4-3 home win over Watford.
After the team line-ups were announced Terry was heavily backed and his first-scorer price with Hills shortened from 33-1 to 14-1.
Terry was also popular to score at any time – the odds shortening from 15-2 to 4-1 – and his goal cost the firm just under £20,000.
The former England defender did not confirm whether he would seek to extend his career next season after the game.
Punters who believe Terry will retire from playing this summer can get 7-4 with Betway.
The firm go 5-4 about him joining Bournemouth and 4-1 that he heads to West Brom.
Manchester United have been strongly linked with a move for Real Madrid’s Colombian international James Rodriguez and would appear to be getting close to landing the player’s signature.
Ladbrokes have suspended betting on James’s next club, having gone as short as 1-10 that the player swaps the Bernabeu for Old Trafford.
Danny Rose will not play again for Tottenham this season after undergoing exploratory knee surgery.
The England left-back has not featured for Spurs since appearing in a 0-0 draw at Sunderland in January.
