Premier League Sack Race betting - Moyes in from 11/1 to 5/6

David Moyes has been backed from 11/1 to 5/6 to be the next Premier League manager to lose his job after Manchester United's defeat to Olympiakos.

Manchester United boss David Moyes has been backed in to 5/6 favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his job in the wake of the club’s latest defeat.
Moyes was 25/1 with Sky Bet to be the next managerial casualty before United’s 2-0 defeat to Olympiakos in the Champions League on Tuesday, but his odds were repeatedly slashed on Wednesday morning.
West Brom manager Pepe Mel had briefly headed the betting market at 10/11 but has since been pushed back out to 5/2 second favourite, with Moyes leapfrogging the Spaniard amid a rapid growth in interest.
Sky Bet’s Head of Football Trading Paul Wiggins said:

“The money on Moyes took us by surprise this morning as the focus was largely on Pepe Mel up until about 10.30am.   
“But no sooner had the West Brom boss been made odds-on, the money on Moyes became relentless, and he went in from 11/1 to 5/6 in just over an hour.”   

United’s odds to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Champions League are out from 1/5 to 7/4 following their first leg loss in Greece, while they’re 8/1 to finish in the top four in the Premier League.
