William Hill desperate to give away money on FA Cup final

It’s a fix!

Bookmakers William Hill were so desperate to see you pick up a small fortune on the outcome of the FA Cup final that they ran adverts in newspapers pointing to the correct final score and goalscorer.

They weren’t shy about the fact that backing Manchester City to win 1-0 with Yaya Toure bagging the goal would get you odds of 50/1. In fact, they took out an advert in the Evening Standard telling you just that.

They are probably now hoping that their advertising campaign wasn’t very effective.

Thanks to OTP reader Marco for the spot.
