Sam Allardyce out to 10/1 after ruling out Scotland job


Sam Allardyce has plummeted to 10/1 to become the next Scotland manager at Ladbrokes after ruling himself out of the running to replace Gordon Strachan.

“It's very tempting but not at this moment in time,” Allardyce told BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek programme. “My parents and sister were all born in Scotland, I have heritage from there.

“I'm enjoying not being involved at the front end of football at the moment. David Moyes would probably be my choice for the Scotland job.”

Moyes is the top pick with the bookmakers too. Ladbrokes have him as the 13/8 favourite at the time of writing, with interim boss Malky Mackay considered his main rival at odds of 9/4.

BREAKING: Gordon Strachan gone; David Moyes 2/1 favourite for Scotland job


David Moyes is Paddy Power’s 2/1 favourite to become the next Scotland manager after it was confirmed that Gordon Strachan had left the role by “mutual consent”. Sam Allardyce is a big mover in the market though, with the former England boss now a 14/1 shot to head north of the border.

Ryan Giggs 9/2 to take over from Chris Coleman as Wales manager


BetVictor make Ryan Giggs its 9/2 favourite to be the next manager of Wales, irrespective of the timescale, after they failed to make the World Cup qualifying play-offs.

“[Chris] Coleman hinted that this World Cup campaign would be his last as the Welsh boss, but he has given himself time to reflect on last night's defeat at the hands of the Republic Of Ireland and there is unlikely to be a quick decision,” BetVictor spokesperson Charlie McCann told Bettingpro.com.

“Former Manchester United and Wales legend Giggs lacks experience but one would imagine he would throw his hat into the ring and is likely to be a popular choice with the fans.”

Next Wales Manager Odds: 9/2 Ryan Giggs; 5/1 Kenny Jackett; 6/1 Craig Bellamy; 6/1 Mark Hughes; 6/1 Tony Pulis; 16s Bar.

Luis Enrique slashed to 8/11 for Bayern Munich job


Bookmaker Betway has slashed its odds on former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique becoming the next Bayern Munich manager.

“News that Pep Guardiola has given his approval of Bayern’s next manager has fuelled speculation of former Barca boss Luis Enrique being the man for the hotseat at the Allianz Arena,” Betway’s Alan Alger told Bettingpro.com.

“The Spaniard entered the market at 16/1, but he is now just 8/11 to take control of the Bundesliga giants.

“The Bayern hierarchy are still considering other options, with ex-Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel firmly in the frame at evens.

“Young Hoffenheim manager Julian Nagelsmann, the initial odds-on favourite at 1/3, has drifted to 14/1 having distanced himself from the vacant position in the past few days.”

Latest Betway odds

Next Permanent Manager:

8/11 Luis Enrique
EVS Thomas Tuchel
8/1 Louis Van Gaal
12/1 Willy Sagnol
14/1 Julian Nagelsmann

Ronald Koeman into 4/7 to be axed despite Everton vote of confidence


William Hill has once again cut the odds of Ronald Koeman being the next Premier League manager to leave his job.

The Everton boss started last weekend as long as 11/4, but he is now into 4/7 following the Toffees’ miserable home defeat to Burnley at the weekend.

Koeman is also 4/1 to have left his position by the end of international break.

“Koeman has just received the dreaded vote of confidence and the international break is often regarded as an ideal time to get rid of a manager,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com.

“Koeman will have a very nerve-wracking two weeks.”

David Unsworth has emerged as the front-runner to replace Koeman should he leave, having been backed in from 11/1 to 4/1, with Carlo Ancelotti 7/1 for the job after being sacked by Bayern Munich.

Latest William Hill odds

Ronald Koeman still Everton manager for their match vs Brighton: 1/7 yes; 4/1 no

Next Premier League manager to leave: 4/7 Ronald Koeman; 7/2 Slaven Bilic; 8/1 Roy Hodgson; 12/1 Craig Shakespeare; 12/1 Paul Clement; 14/1 Mauricio Pellegrino; 16/1 Rafa Benitez; 20/1 BAR

Next permanent Everton manager: 4/1 David Unsworth; 7/1 Carlo Ancelotti; 10/1 Eddie Howe; 10/1 Rafa Benitez; 12/1 Manuel Pellegrini; 14/1 Lucien Favre; 16/1 Duncan Ferguson; 20/1 Brendan Rodgers; 20/1 Roberto Mancini; 25/1 BAR

Nagelsmann 1/3 favourite to become next Bayern Munich manager after Ancelotti sacking


Carlo Ancelotti has been sacked by Bayern Munich following the midweek Champions League defeat to Paris St Germain, and bookmaker Betway believe Hoffenheim boss Julian Nagelsmann is the leading candidate to replace the Italian.

“A stuttering start to Bayern’s season was dealt another blow when losing 3-0 against PSG last night and that was enough to see the club’s hierarchy pull the trigger on Carlo Ancelotti,” Betway’s Alan Alger told Bettingpro.com.

“The German giants will be looking for a replacement as soon as possible and the betting suggests they might not be far away from getting their man.

“Assistant Willy Sagnol has been thrown into the mix at 3/1 and Thomas Tuchel, without a job since parting with Borussia Dortmund, is in the running at 4/1.

“While those two seem to fit the bill nicely, Julian Nagelsmann has been the one for money from the off and now looks the most obvious man for the job at 1/3.

“Jurgen Klopp’s under a touch of pressure at Liverpool and he is fourth in the betting at 14/1 to return to Germany and take the reins at the Allianz.”

Xabi Alonso 16/1 to manage in Premier League before end of 2020


One of the most successful players in modern football, Xabi Alonso, has announced he wants to turn his hand to management and William Hill is looking at where he could crop up.

He is 16/1 to manage in the Premier League before the end of 2020, 8/1 to manage in La Liga in the same time frame and 10/1 in the Bundesliga.

“Alonso has played under some of the greatest coaches in world football and if even a fraction of their knowledge has rubbed off on him, he could be quite the gaffer,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com.

Latest William Hill odds:

16/1 Will Xabi Alonso manage in the Premier League before the end of 2020?
8/1 Will Xabi Alonso manage in La Liga before the end of 2020?
10/1 Will Xabi Alonso manage in the Bundesliga before the end of 2020?
10/1 Will Xabi Alonso manage in the Champions League before the end of 2020?

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp into just 16/1 for the sack


William Hill has slashed the odds on Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp being the next managerial casualty in the Premier League.

Klopp has seen his Sack Race odds tumble from 100/1 to 16/1 in just five days, while it is now 11/2 that the German is no longer Liverpool manager on the last day of this season.

“Defeat to Manchester City, a draw with Burnley and losing to Leicester City in the League Cup has seen Klopp’s axe odds slashed,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com.

“Another defeat to the Foxes this weekend could see him move into a single figure price.”

Latest William Hill odds:

Will Jurgen Klopp be Liverpool manager on the last day of the season: 1/10 yes; 11/2 no

Next Premier League manager to go: 2/1 Slaven Bilic; 11/4 Ronald Koeman; 10/1 Craig Shakespeare; 10/1 Rafael Benitez; 16/1 Eddie Howe; 16/1 Jurgen Klopp; 16/1 Mauricio Pellegrino; 16/1 Roy Hodgson; 20/1 BAR


12:00 11 Sep

Slaven Bilic odds-on to go next following reports of Frank de Boer sacking


Frank de Boer has reportedly been sacked by Crystal Palace so now all of the pressure turns to Slaven Bilic, according to bookmaker William Hill.

The West Ham United boss is the new 1/2 favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his job this season, with Rafael Benitez the 5/1 second favourite ahead of Eddie Howe at 14/1.

“Bilic is next in line for the chop,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com.

“It looks as though it would only be a Benitez decision to walk that will stop him from being the second boss to leave this season.”

Latest William Hill odds:

Next Premier League manager to leave: 1/2 Slaven Bilic; 5/1 Rafa Benitez; 14/1 Eddie Howe; 16/1 Arsene Wenger; 16/1 Antonio Conte; 16/1 Craig Shakespeare; 16/1 Mauricio Pellegrino; 20/1 Paul Clement; 25/1 next permanent Crystal Palace manager; 25/1 Mark Hughes; 33/1 BAR

BREAKING: De Boer odds-on to leave Crystal Palace before next game


Frank de Boer’s Crystal Palace were unlucky in defeat to Burnley on Sunday, but that does not hide the fact that the Eagles are propping up the Premier League table having not scored a single goal.

Therefore it is no surprise to see the Dutchman into 1/5 to be the first Premier League manager to leave his job this season, while William Hill is now 4/7 about de Boer leaving the club before the Southampton game next weekend.

Latest William Hill Odds

Next manager to leave: 1/5 Frank de Boer; 4/1 Slaven Bilic; 8/1 Rafa Benitez; 20/1 BAR

Will Frank de Boer still be in charge of Crystal Palace for the Southampton game next week: 4/7 no; 5/4 yes

Frank de Boer 1/2 ahead of ‘must-win’ clash; Wenger 2/1 to go this season


Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer has reportedly been given one match to save his job – Sunday’s clash with Burnley – and as a result William Hill make the Dutchman the 1/2 favourite to be the first Premier League manager to go this season

West Ham United boss Slaven Bilic is now the 2/1 second favourite, with Newcastle United chief Rafael Benitez 7/2 despite his insistence that he is not considering quitting the North East club.

Another manager who is already under pressure is Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, and William Hill is 2/1 that the Frenchman is not the Gunners boss for the final game of this season. The firm is also 11/8 that Wenger fails to see out the two-year deal he signed during the summer.

Latest William Hill odds

Next Premier League manager to leave: 1/2 Frank de Boer; 2/1 Slaven Bilic; 7/2 Rafael Benitez; 14/1 Arsene Wenger; 20/1 Antonio Conte; 33/1 BAR

Arsene Wenger slashed to 10/1 to be first managerial casualty


The odds of Arsene Wenger being the first Premier League manager to go have been slashed by William Hill following a miserable start to the season and an underwhelming performance in the transfer market.

The Gunners were humiliated 4-0 at Liverpool last weekend, meaning they have taken just three points from their first three games, and in the transfer market they failed to strengthen further before the window slammed shut, instead letting Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Kieran Gibbs leave.

As a result William Hill has slashed its odds on Wenger being the first manager to lose his job this season, with the Frenchman going from 33/1 to just 10/1.

That makes him the fourth favourite in the market behind Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer at 4/5, West Ham United boss Slaven Bilic at 6/4 and Newcastle United chief Rafael Benitez at 3/1.

Latest William Hill Odds

Next Premier League manager to leave: 4/5 Frank de Boer; 6/4 Slaven Bilic; 3/1 Rafa Benitez; 10/1 Arsene Wenger; 14/1 Antonio Conte; 25/1 Chris Hughton; 25/1 Mark Hughes; 33/1 BAR

Will Arsene Wenger be Arsenal manager on the last day of this season: 4/11 yes; 9/4 no

Antonio Conte 6/1 to be first Premier League managerial casualty


Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is just 6/1 to be the first managerial casualty in the Premier League this season, according to bookmaker William Hill.

The defending champions crashed to a shock 3-2 defeat at home to Burnley on opening day and they already appear to be a club in crisis at this early stage of the season.

So will Conte turn things around?

The bookmakers are not convinced he will get the time with William Hill making the Italian the fourth favourite to be the first top-flight boss to go, with only Rafael Benitez (2/1), Mark Hughes (7/2) and Slaven Bilic (4/1) available at shorter odds.

“It sounds crazy but just one game into the season it seems Chelsea are in crisis,” William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams told Bettingpro.com.

“Conte is now one of the favourites to be the first manager out of the door and Chelsea look a shadow of the side that won the league so convincingly last season.”

Latest William Hill odds

Next Premier League Manager To Leave: 2/1 Benitez, 7/2 Hughes, 4/1 Bilic, 6/1 Conte, 10/1 de Boer, 12/1 Shakespeare, 16/1 Clement, 20/1 Hughton, 20/1 Silva, 25/1 Dyche, 25/1 Pulis, 33/1 Wenger, 33/1 Wagner, 33/1 Klopp, 33/1 Pellegrino, 40/1 Howe, 50/1 Koeman, 66/1 Mourinho, 66/1 Pochettino, 66/1 Guardiola

Caretaker boss Jon Daly odds-on favourite for Hearts job


After a fairly tumultuous day in the betting for the next Hearts manager, William Hill’s market seems to have calmed down and Jon Daly has settled as the 4/11 favourite.

He started the day as a 10/1 shot but quickly saw his odds tumble to 1/5 before drifting again.

Paul Hartley is the 7/2 second favourite with Steven Pressley 9/1.

“With Jon Daly in charge in the short term, there are plenty of people backing him to get the job on a permanent basis,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com.

“However, it is not looking as certain as it was a couple of hours ago.”

Latest William Hill odds:

Next permanent Hearts manager: 4/11 Jon Daly; 7/2 Paul Hartley; 9/1 Steven Pressley; 10/1 Craig Levein; 14/1 Austin MacPhee; 14/1 Tommy Wright; 20/1 BAR

12:00 01 Aug

Steven Pressley 4/1 favourite for Hearts job after Ian Cathro sacking


Hearts have sacked manager Ian Cathro just days before they kick-off their Scottish Premiership campaign, and bookmaker William Hill has made Steven Pressley its early favourite to take the reins.

Cathro lasted less than a year in charge at Tynecastle and former defender Pressley – who quit Fleetwood Town a year ago – is the 4/1 favourite to be named the next Hearts boss.

The club’s director of football, Craig Levein, is 5/1 for a second stint in charge, with ex-Dundee boss Paul Hartley and current St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright both 6/1 shots.

“The Cathro experiment didn’t quite work out,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com.

“And it looks as though those who were calling for a ‘real football man’ to take the helm seven months ago will get their wish.”

Latest William Hill odds

Next permanent Hearts manager: 4/1 Steven Pressley; 5/1 Craig Levein; 6/1 Paul Hartley; 6/1 Tommy Wright; 7/1 Austin MacPhee; 7/1 Gary Locke; 8/1 Paolo Sergio; 8/1 Peter Houston; 10/1 Jack Ross; 10/1 Jon Daly; 12/1 Jim McIntyre; 12/1 Rudi Skacel; 14/1 Andy Kirk; 14/1 Michael O’Neill; 16/1 Allan Johnston; 16/1 Gary Mackay; 16/1 Owen Coyle; 20/1 BAR

Rafa Benitez 'Winning' the Sack Race: Newcastle Boss Favourite to be First Fired

Rafa Benitez is favourite for this year's Premier League sack race, according to Ladbrokes.

The bookies have chalked up the Newcastle boss at 7/2 to be given the heave-ho first this season, with Stoke's Mark Hughes at 11/2.

Slaven Bilic is 6/1 to be gone before anyone else, ahead of the real surprise in the betting - Antonio Conte.

Amid continued reports that the Chelsea boss is at ends with the Stamford Bridge board, it's just 8/1 the Italian is the first to go, despite landing the title last year.

All of Conte's rivals - Jurgen Klopp, Mauricio Pochettino, Arsene Wenger, Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola - look safe in their posts at 33/1 or bigger.

Richard Marsh of Ladbrokes News said: "The new Premier League season hasn't even started but already it doesn't look great for Rafa at Newcastle."

"Antonio Conte may have guided Chelsea to the title last season, but he's ominously high up the betting when it comes to the sack race."

Premier League - First Manager to leave in 2017/18

Rafael Benitez - 7/2
Mark Hughes - 11/2
Slaven Bilic - 6/1
Antonio Conte - 8/1
Craig Shakespeare - 9/1
Marco Silva - 11/1
Chris Hughton - 12/1

Antonio Conte odds-on to be axed before new Chelsea contract expires


Bookmaker Betway go 2/5 for Antonio Conte to part with Chelsea before the start of the 2019/20 Premier League season following the news of his new two-year contract.

The Italian led the Blues to the title last season but speculation was rife about his long-term future before news of his new and improved deal.

While the online bookmaker makes Conte 1/8 to still be in charge at the end of the upcoming season, odds of 2/5 for him to not last another two seasons suggest the Italian’s time at the club is limited.

“Antonio Conte took the Premier League by storm last season and Chelsea fans will no doubt be relieved to hear about his new deal,” Betway’s Alan Alger told Bettingpro.com.

“However, the high turnover of managers at Stamford Bridge suggests it’s hard to cement yourself in the top job and we go 2/5 for Conte to be gone before the 2019/20 season.”

Per Mertesacker 12/1 to manage Arsenal in next five years


Per Mertesacker is 12/1 to take over as Arsenal manager within the next five years after confirming he will take up a coaching role after retiring in 2018.

Mertesacker has signed a contract to become the Arsenal academy manager when he hangs up his boots and the betting suggests this could be a stepping stone to presiding over the first team.

“Per Mertesacker’s appointment as Arsenal academy manager suggests that he could be getting prepared to become the first team manager by 2023,” Betway’s Alan Alger told Bettingpro.com.

Meanwhile, Betway have reacted to Chelsea missing out on signing Romelu Lukaku by offering 2/1 for manager Antonio Conte to be sacked before his main rivals.

Betway’s ‘Big Guns’ market, which includes Jose Mourinho at a massive 10/1 to be dismissed first, has only Arsene Wenger ahead of Conte at 7/4, with the Blues boss at 2/1 and Pep Guardiola at 5/2.

“With this expected to be Arsene Wenger’s last season, we go 7/4 for the Frenchman to leave his post before any of his main rivals,” Alger added.

“However, Antonio Conte has come under criticism for his dealings in the transfer window and our ‘Big Guns’ market has the Italian close behind Wenger at 2/1.”

Frank Lampard slashed to 3/1 for Oxford United job


Frank Lampard could be the next man in the Oxford United hotseat, according to bookmaker Ladbrokes.

The bookies have slashed odds of the Chelsea legend taking over at the Kassam Stadium from 10/1 to just 3/1, making him third-favourite for the job.

Former Leeds United assistant Pep Clotet is the 4/7 favourite, with Jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink next best at 5/2, and Chris Powell a dark horse at 8/1.

“We’re not ruling out Lamps’ arrival in League One next season, with the England legend now just 3/1 to take the reins at Oxford,” Ladbrokes’ Dave Burin told Bettingpro.com.

“However, right now it’s Clotet who’s favourite to be giving the Pep talks for the Us come opening day.”

Frank Lampard 4/1 to become next Oxford United manager after holding talks


Former Chelsea and Manchester City star Frank Lampard is 4/1 to take the reins at Oxford United following reports that he is in talks with the League One club.

Oxford are on the hunt for a new boss after Michael Appleton left to become assistant manager at Leicester City, and former Swansea City and Leeds United number two Pep Clotet is the odds-on favourite at 2/5 with BetVictor ahead of 2/1 Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

However, Lampard, who retired as a player last year, has now stormed into contention after Sky Sports claimed the 39-year-old has held talks with United.

Rafael Benitez 2/1 favourite to be first Premier League manager to go


Frank de Boer has been installed as the new Crystal Palace manager and means that there is now a full complement of managers in place at all 20 Premier League clubs – but who will be the first man to go?

William Hill has priced up their first manager to go market and make Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez the 2/1 favourite to “win” the sack race, with de Boer out at 50/1 to be the first to go.

“Benitez is reportedly growing increasingly frustrated,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com.

Frank de Boer Even money to leave Crystal Palace before 2018/19 season


Frank de Boer is already Even money with Betway to be replaced as Crystal Palace manager before the start of the 2018/19 Premier League season.

The leading online bookmaker goes 8/11 for the incoming Dutchman to get a second season at Selhurst Park, although it is short at 4/7 for his first Premier League campaign to result in a bottom-half finish.

Betway offers 4/7 for Palace to finish 11th-17th in the coming season, 11/4 for 5th-10th, whilst it is 9/2 the south London side are relegated.

The former Inter Milan and Ajax boss is 50/1 to make it a dream opening campaign with the Eagles and steer them to Champions League football.

“Settling into the Premier League is very tough and we go Evens for Frank de Boer to leave Crystal Palace before start of the 2018/19 season,” Betway’s Alan Alger told Bettingpro.com.

“The odds just about favour him remaining at Selhurst Park for a second season at 8/11, though we think he’ll have to settle for a spot in the wrong half in his first at 4/7.”

Mauricio Pellegrino 1/5 for Southampton as de Boer moves in on Palace job


William Hill has suspended betting on the next Crystal Palace manager after Frank de Boer was backed in to 1/3 amidst rumours that the Dutchman has been offered the job.

That means that Mauricio Pellegrino has been slashed to 1/5 for the Southampton job.

“It was widely thought that the race for the Southampton and Palace jobs were between two men,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly  told Bettingpro.com.

“So with de Boer reportedly off to Palace, Pellegrino is left with a clear route to the South coast.”

Prime Minister Theresa May 4/7 favourite to leave job before Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger


Bookmaker Betway make Theresa May the 4/7 favourite to leave her job at No. 10 before Arsene Wenger is replaced at Arsenal.

The Prime Minister has come under fire after last week’s general election saw the party lose their majority share of seats in parliament, and the leading online bookmaker thinks May will walk the plank before Arsenal’s long term gaffer does.  

Arsene Wenger recently signed a new deal to stay on as Gunners boss for another two years at least, and Betway offers longer odds of 5/4 for the Frenchman to leave his post before the Prime Minister does.

“If punters had been asked last month who they thought would be likelier to leave their job first out of Theresa May and Arsene Wenger, the smart money would have been on the Frenchman saying ‘au revoir’ to the Gunners faithful,” Betway’s Alan Alger told Bettingpro.com.

“Funny how things change – Wenger has since won Arsenal a third FA Cup in four years and signed a new two-year deal, while Theresa May has miraculously mishandled a general election vote.

“Due to May’s mistakes, we make her 4/7 favourite to leave before Wenger does, with the Premier League’s current longest serving gaffer being stretched to 5/4.”

Who will leave their current job first?

4/7 Theresa May
5/4 Arsene Wenger

Thomas Tuchel 6/5 favourite to replace sacked Claude Puel at Southampton


Thomas Tuchel could soon be named as Claude Puel's replacement at Southampton, according to bookmaker Ladbrokes.

The former Borussia Dortmund boss had once been a frontrunner to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, but at 6/5, he is now the clear favourite to take over at St Mary's.

Behind him at 4/1 is former Ajax and Inter Milan manager Frank de Boer, but the bookies have said there has been a flurry of bets placed on Alan Pardew returning to the south-coast and, as a result, he has already seen his odds slashed from 33/1 to just 10/1.

“Saints have finally parted ways with Puel and the early signs suggest a replacement is already being lined up in the shape of Tuchel,” Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati told Bettingpro.com.

“But will Pards throw a spanner in the works? We're certainly keeping an eye on this odds after making a notable move in the market.”

Mauricio Pellegrino cut to Even money amid reports of Crystal Palace talks


Mauricio Pellegrino is the new Even money favourite to become the next Crystal Palace manager.

Sean Dyche has long been considered the favourite to succeed Sam Allardyce at Selhurst Park, but the current Burnley boss has now drifted out to 3/1 from Even money with Ladbrokes amid reports the Eagles are holding talks with former Alaves manager Pellegrino.

The 45-year-old Argentinian is no stranger to English football having spent some time with Liverpool as a player and a coach, and having returned to Europe in 2016 after a spell managing in his native Argentina, Pellegrino is now the Even money favourite to head back to the Premier League as the new Palace boss.

Former Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is considered Pellegrino’s main rival at 2/1 amid claims he is also holding talks with the Eagles, while Frank de Boer has drifted to 4/1 just days after some leading bookmakers suspended betting in response to a flurry of bets on the Dutchman taking the reins at Selhurst Park.

“Rumoured talks with Pellegrini have blown this market wide open,” Ladbrokes' Alex Apati told Bettingpro.com. “Last week it looked set to be Dyche's to lose, but our traders now reckon as many as four names are in with a genuine chance of getting the job.”

Derek McInnes 1/8 for Sunderland switch but Aberdeen rubbish reports of talks


Derek McInnes is now just 1/8 to become the next Sunderland manager despite his current employers, Aberdeen, digging in their heels.

McInnes has been a leading contender for the Black Cats vacancy ever since David Moyes moved on at the end of a miserable 2016/17 campaign, and he was cut to 4/9 by several leading bookmakers on Tuesday morning after another flurry of supporter for the Scot.

BetVictor has now shortened him even further, to just 1/8, following claims that he is in talks with the Black Cats about filling the vacancy, but Aberdeen’s new major shareholder Dave Cormack has rubbished those reports and has insisted the Scottish Premiership side will do all they can to retain the highly-rated manager.

“The reality is, Sunderland or no other team have been given permission to speak to Derek - he is our manager,” Cormack told BBC Scotland. “He's 100% focused. He's on vacation in Florida and the guy's working every day. He's a very astute manager, we want to keep him, he is contracted to us, no-one's been given permission to talk to him.”

While McInnes’ odds continue to shorten, club legend Kevin Phillips has now drifted all the way out to 8/1 with current Bradford City manager Stuart McCall next up at 16/1 ahead of Simon Grayson, Paul Lambert and Nigel Pearson who are now all available at 20s.

Bookies suspend betting as Frank de Boer holds Crystal Palace talks


Bookmaker BetVictor has suspended betting on the next Crystal Palace manager after Frank de Boer opened talks with the Premier League club.

The Eagles have been on the hunt for a new manager since Sam Allardyce quit the club and current Burnley boss Sean Dyche has been the bookies’ favourite since then, going as short as 1/5 at one time.

However, Sky Sports claim Palace have ear-marked former Ajax boss de Boer as a replacement for ‘Big Sam’ and is reporting that the Dutchman has begun talks with the Selhurst Park outfit.

De Boer had a successful stint at Ajax before leaving last summer, winning four straight Eredivisie titles between 2011 and 2014.

Sean Dyche now clear 1/5 favourite for Crystal Palace post


Sean Dyche is the clear favourite with Ladbrokes to take over at Crystal Palace.

According to the bookies, the Burnley boss was in a two-horse race with Roy Hodgson for the vacant post at Selhurst Park, but at 1/5 he's now shorter than anyone has ever been for the position.

Hodgson is now out to 8/1, while Manuel Pellegrino is a 5/1 shot for the role.

"This is huge news for both Crystal Palace and Burnley," Ladbrokes' Alex Apati told Bettingpro.com.

"Continued interest in Dyche from punters has seen him fall incredibly short in this market. As far as we're concerned, it may well be a done deal."

Hodgson had been as long as 5/1 on Tuesday morning before punters backed the former Liverpool boss into favouritism at 6/5.

But while the veteran gaffer looked to be running away at the head of the market, a flurry of bets on Dyche - who had been as big as 7/1 - have seen the Burnley man's odds slashed to just 6/4.

"Hodgson and Dyche look set to battle it out for the vacant Palace post and while the former is currently the most popular with punters, we're seeing increased interest in the Burnley gaffer," Ladbrokes' Alex Apati told Bettingpro.com.

Leonid Slutsky nailed on for Hull City job says bookies


Leonid Slutsky has been slashed to 1/7 to become the next Hull City manager amid reports his appointment is imminent.

The former CSKA Moscow boss, who managed Russia at Euro 2016 last summer, has been looking to land a job with an English club for several months now and recently revealed he has been receiving help from Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.  

“Mr Abramovich is my friend and he is helping me achieve my dream,” told reporters. “It's a challenge for him. He is like my agent, the best agent in the world. He's giving me lots of advice about tactics and behaviour and communication with chairmen and owners.”

It appears as though that help could now land him the Hull City vacancy.

The Tigers have been on the hunt for a new boss since Marco Silva quit in the wake of their relegation from the Premier League, and William Hill is now 1/7 that Slutsky is named his successor.

Former Leeds United manager Garry Monk is next up at 9/1 ahead of Nigel Adkins and Paul Lambert at 12/1, with ex-Sunderland boss David Moyes 16/1 to make a swift return to management with Hull.

Marco Silva has been cut to 5/4 to be the next Crystal Palace manager, following reports that Roberto Mancini will not be replacing Sam Allardyce at Selhurst Park.

Betway slashed Silva's odds from 15/8 on Friday morning and it now appears a two horse race between the Portuguese and former Leeds United boss Garry Monk.

Betway’s Alan Alger, told Bettingpro: 

“Marco Silva’s odds of becoming the next Crystal Palace manager have moved in from 15/8 to 5/4 this morning, suggesting he may not be too far away from putting pen to paper.
 
“Silva is not the only candidate whose odds have shortened, though. Garry Monk is a well-backed 13/8 chance, having previously been available at 20/1.
 
“It would appear that former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini is dropping out of the running. The Italian has been pushed out from 13/8 to 8/1 in the last 24 hours.”

“He ticks a lot of boxes for Barcelona,” Balague told Sky Sports News HQ. “But a lot of people at the club are not convinced fully about him taking over, even though he gave an interview to a Catalan newspaper with the idea of positioning himself for the job. But that's what you have to do at this stage if you want the job.”

David Moyes 5/4 to be next Premier League manager to go after Sunderland relegation


David Moyes is reportedly set to discuss his future with Middlesbrough chairman, Ellis Short, and William Hill offer just 5/4 that he is the next Premier League manager to leave his job.

“Moyes has looked beleaguered all season,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com.

“It looks as though he is on his way with Aitor Karanka and Nigel Pearson who both have Championship experience frontrunners to take over.”

Next Premier League manager to leave: 4/6 no manager to leave; 5/4 David Moyes; 10/1 Slaven Bilic; 12/1 Walter Mazzarri; 16/1 Claude Puel; 20/1 Arsene Wenger; 40/1 Paul Clement; 50/1 BAR

Latest Betway Odds:

5/2 Ronald Koeman to be manager of Barcelona by end of 2019/20 season
