Odds cut on Scott Parker to be sacked from Fulham

The Fulham boss is now favourite with some bookmakers to be the first manager to go

Following another poor display from Fulham, this time losing 3-0 to Aston Villa, the pressure has already begun to mount on Scott Parker.

Bookmakers were quick to cut his odds during the game tonight, and he is now as short as 21/10 to be the first Premier League manager to be sacked this season. 

The 39-year-old was as big as 7/1 in the market before tonight, but has seen that price lapped up by punters.

In the last 4 hours, 80% of bets in the market have been on Parker. 

Clearly, punters think the former England international is in trouble now, with plenty quick to get their cash down on him. 

Fulham are still yet to pick up a point in the Premier League this season. What is more worrying for Parker and his side, however, is that they have conceded 10 goals in just three games. 

That is an extremely worrying sign and although it would be silly to write a team off three games in to the season, the outlook currently looks bleak for the West London side. 

Their defence does not look good enough for the Premier League. Arsenal, Leeds and now Aston Villa have already taken advantage of that. 

David Moyes’ West Ham producing a shock 4-0 victory over Wolves last night has not helped Parker’s case either. 

 

Moyes was the favourite to go first before the weekend, but with a number of firms Scott Parker is now at the head of the market. 

Moyes has surely bought himself some more time, and has meant his odds have been eased out to as big as 3/1 with some firms.

Elsewhere in the market, Jose Mourinho (9/1), Slaven Bilic (11/1) and Roy Hodgson (12/1) are all near the front of the market. 

Chelsea’s 3-3 draw against West Brom has seen Lampard’s odds cut from 25/1 into as short as 10/1

Chris Wilder has also seen his odds drop after a poor start to the season with Sheffield United. He was as big as 33/1 but is now a 16/1 chance.
