Anyone who regularly bets on the player to score markets will have experienced the frustration of seeing their player hobble off injured early on or being inexplicably substituted whilst their bet is still in play. As your player trundles off the pitch, your money disappears with him.
Now there’s an alternative. William Hill’s Super Sub offer can ensure that your bet still runs, even if your selected player doesn’t. Should your player be substituted for whatever reason and the related market for your bet has yet to be settled, then your bet (and the original price of your selection) will run onto the teammate who replaces him.
This offer is also available on William Hill’s app, for quick download use our direct link:
It can be particularly useful if you back a player who is prone to being regularly substituted. Someone like Everton midfielder Ross Barkley immediately springs to mind.
In normal circumstances, were Barkley to be having a poor game and be replaced early in the second-half, your bet would be lost if it hadn’t already been settled.
Now though, rather than the family pet diving for cover as the TV remote goes flying across the room, with the William Hill Super Sub offer your bet will continue to run should your selection be substituted. So, in this example, your money might be going on to someone like Gerard Deulofeu or Enner Valencia.
The promotion even applies to a substitute being substituted. So, were you to have backed Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez to be the last goalscorer and he was replaced by Theo Walcott, but then he were to be replaced by Olivier Giroud, then your bet would stand on whichever of those players was on the pitch at the time.
Depending on the particular market you select, the William Hill Super Sub offer might not be a factor too often, as a result of your player either not being substituted or the market having already been settled by the time he is. What the offer does provide is a little extra security.
However, it could be a great offer when it comes to the anytime scorer market, as the bet would run for the full 90-minutes if not already settled in your favour.
For example, you’ve had a punt on Juan Mata to score anytime for Manchester United, but he’s hauled off to be replaced by Marcus Rashford at half-time. Now, instead of being consigned to the bin, your bet is on Rashford to score in the remaining 45-minutes.
The Super Sub promotion applies to selected TV matches throughout the season. Alongside Premier League games, it also covers the Champions’ League; various English and Scottish league and cup competitions; La Liga and selected international and Europa League matches shown on Sky Sports, BT Sport and the terrestrial TV channels.
It also covers a vast range of markets, including first goalscorer, anytime goalscorer and many more besides (check the William Hill site for full details).
