Managerial Specials Betting Tips

Next manager oddsBy Mark Rawlinson

The ‘Managerial Merry-go-Round’ is spinning faster and faster as patience runs out at some clubs with the season approaching its halfway mark.

Andre Villas-Boas has been the highest profile victim of late with Steve Clarke also being relieved of his duties at West Brom last weekend.

Next Tottenham Manager Odds

Time finally ran out for Andre Villas-Boas with Spurs’ 5-0 drubbing by Liverpool on Sunday evening as he was axed from his post at White Hart Lane on Monday morning.

AVB leaves Spurs in seventh place after just 16 months in charge, with chairman Daniel Levy expecting more after splashing the cash over the summer with the signing of seven high-profile players.

Ajax boss Frank de Boer has emerged as favourite to take the job over the last day or so, and Coral offer the best odds of 5/2.

Tim Sherwood is currently in temporary charge of the team but the odds on him have drofted following Wednesday’s 2-1 defeat to West Ham in the Capital One Cup. Sherwood has coached at the club since 2008 and the best odds you’ll find for him are with Betfred at 5/1.

Glenn Hoddle, who was the Spurs manager between 2001 and 2003, has also thrown his hat into the ring and Stan James are pricing him at 8/1 to return to the Lane.

Other leading contenders include Swansea boss Michael Laudrup who is priced at 8/1 with SkyBet, whilst former England and current Russia manager Fabio Capello is available with Bet Victor at 10/1.

Next West Brom Manager Odds

West Brom are also on the search for a new boss following the departure of Steve Clarke after a run of six games without a win, leaving them 16th in the Premier League.

Former Manchester United legend Ole Gunnar Solskjær is currently the favourite to take on the job. He currently manages Norwegian side Molde FK, whom he led to consecutive league titles in 2011 and 2012, and Stan James are offering odds of 11/8 in him being appointed at the Hawthorns.

Gianfranco Zola, who left Watford last week, is current favourite to take up the post, Betfred offering the best odds of 5/1.

The unsettled Cardiff manager Malky MacKay has also been linked to the vacancy and Paddy Power currently offer the best price of 8/1.

English coach Paul Clement, who began his life as a PE Teacher and is now working as a coach at Real Madrid, is also amongst the favourites, and William Hill offer odds of 12/1 on him taking his first full managerial job.

Sack Race Odds

Malky McKay is heading the lists to be the next sacked Premier League manager with relations with Cardiff chairman Vincent Tan continuing to deteriorate.

Paddy Power are offering the best odds of 2/5 on him being the next Premier League manager to be fired this season.

Sam Allerdyce is also under pressure at West Ham with the East Londoners hovering just a point over the relegation zone.

However, their progress into the Capital One Cup semi-finals have strengthened his chances of keeping his job at Upton Park and he’s priced at 8/1 with Bet Victor to lose his job next.
