Next Swansea City manager odds: Eddie Howe slight favourite over Frank Lampard following Steve Cooper exit

Alex Neil and John Terry are next up in the betting…

Former Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has been installed as the clear favourite to take over from Steve Cooper at Swansea City.  

The English manager is the 4/1 favourite in the early stages of the market, with Bet Victor the first to offer odds on Cooper’s replacement.  

Frank Lampard closely follows his compatriot at the slightly longer odds of 5/1, with the former Chelsea manager also without a club at the moment.

A trio of Alex Neil, John Terry and Neil Lennon are next up in the betting, and can’t be separated at 8/1 each.  

Rotherham United boss Paul Warne follows next at 10/1, then comes Wycombe Wanderers’ gaffer Gareth Ainsworth at 12/1, alongside Tony Pulis (12/1).  

In a tightly priced market, former Stoke City boss Mark Hughes (12/1) and brief England manager Sam Allardyce (12/1) are the same price.  

WhoScored.com exclusively revealed that Swansea City are Howe's favourite opponent. He faces them seven times without defeat and isn't unbeaten against any other club over five encounters.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “Despite Eddie Howe being made the marginal favourite for the next Swansea City manager, the bookmakers’ pricing of the market is incredibly tight. 

“At 4/1, bookies are implying just a 20% chance Howe will take over at the Vitality Stadium. Lampard is the next nearest challenger with an implied 17% chance.”
