Sack race odds: Five Premier League managers shorter than 10/1 as Bruce, Nuno and Ole lead contenders

Sack race odds: Five Premier League managers shorter than 10/1 as Bruce, Nuno and Ole lead contenders

After Xisco Munoz sacking the next manager to leave odds have opened up, with a host of managers now in the hot-seat including Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The favourites 

There are five different Premier League managers shorter than 10/1 to be the next to leave the league, with a pair of joint-favourites at the time of writing.

Newcastle boss Steve Bruce and Spurs gaffer Nuno Espirito Santo have the unfortunate honour of being 4/1 co-favourites.

With the Magpies currently 19th in the table, Bruce has proved the most popular with punters since the weekend’s fixtures, attracting 26% of all bets.

A total of 19 different bookmakers on the oddschecker grids now make Newcastle odds-on for relegation this season, now at as short as 17/20.

Stranded at the bottom of the table, Norwich’s Daniel Farke is the third most likely manager to be sent packing next, currently priced at 11/2.

The biggest market mover, however, is Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norwegian’s odds have been halved from 12/1 into 6/1 following their 1-1 draw with Everton.

The other contenders

Ralph Hasenhuttl (8/1), Mikel Arteta (12/1), Bruno Lage (14/1) and Patrick Viera (16/1) are next in the running order, then comes Brendan Rodgers (19/1) and Sean Dyche (20/1).  

In terms of the most secure gigs in the league, David Moyes (50/1), Thomas Tuchel (66/1) and Jürgen Klopp (66/1) are the least likely to leave next.  

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “Watford’s Xisco Munoz dismissal has resulted in bookmakers resetting the Sack Race market for the first time this season.  

“It appears bookies are not short of candidates here, with a quarter of the league’s managers all shorter than 10/1 to go next.  

“Steve Bruce and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have proved most popular with punters since Saturday, attracting 26% and 21% of bets respectively.”
