Sack race odds: Newcastle boss Steve Bruce ODDS-ON favourite to leave next

Yet another defeat has left the Newcastle United boss staring down the barrel.


Next manager to be sacked odds: Steve Bruce shortens into 8/15 to go next

Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce is the clear odds-on favourite to be sacked next. The 60-year-old has been cut from even money to a best price of 8/15.

Pressure had already been mounting on Bruce before their clash with Leeds United on Tuesday evening, but a 2-1 defeat has left plenty expecting the Newcastle manager to lose his job imminently.

That result was their ninth Premier League game without a win, and fifth consecutive league defeat, a period which also saw them knocked out of both domestic cups.

Fans have been left uninspired by ‘Bruce Ball’ this season and with the club now just seven points clear of the drop zone and 6/4 to be relegated, a change at the helm looks increasingly likely.

Next Premier League manager to leave odds:

  • Steve Bruce 8/15
  • Chris Wilder 5/1
  • Roy Hodgson 6/1
  • Graham Potter 10/1
  • Sean Dyche 16/1
  • Mikel Arteta 16/1
  • Nuno Espirito Santo 16/1
  • Sam Allardyce 16/1


Next Newcastle United manager odds: Rafa Benitez, Eddie Howe and Graeme Jones among contenders

Former boss Rafa Benitez is currently the favourite to be the next permanent Newcastle United manager with several bookies. He’s as short as 7/4, but a best price of 6/1 elsewhere.

The Spaniard left his position at Chinese Super League club Dalian Professional over the weekend.

However, reports suggest Benitez is not interested in any vacancy that may arise at either Celtic or Newcastle.


Sky Bet make former Luton Town manager Graeme Jones their joint-favourite at 7/2. Reports suggested Jones was due to leave his position as coach at AFC Bournemouth to join the backroom staff at his hometown club, but he could be in line for the permanent role.

Elsewhere in the market, Eddie Howe is also as short as 7/2 to take the job, but way out at a best price of 7/1 with other bookmakers.

No clear frontrunner has emerged as yet and it’s guesswork beyond the top two in the market, with Mark Hughes (12/1) and newly available Frank Lampard (14/1) the next shortest.
