Sack race odds: Steve Bruce slashed to odds-on-favourite for the sack after new ownership announcement

Sack race odds: Steve Bruce slashed to odds-on-favourite for the sack after new ownership announcement

Steve Bruce is now odds-on-favourite for the sack with the announcement of new ownership at Newcastle, oddschecker will break down the market.

The favourite

For many Newcastle fans, yesterday marked an important period for the club with the announcement of new ownership, taking over from Mike Ashley.

Steve Bruce’s Newcastle are currently second from bottom in the league having only picked up three points on their first seven games and no wins.

Bruce was 4/1 to be sacked as of yesterday but after the announcement of new ownership he has become the clear odds-on-favourite to be sacked at a best price of 1/2 but can be found at 4/9.

Bruce has proved the most popular with punters in the last 24 hours, attracting 90.6% of all bets.

The other contenders

With Bruce now becoming the front runner for the sack, it has put some distance between himself and other managers.

Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo is next on the list at 10/1, Norwich’s Daniel Farke at 12/1, new Watford manager Claudio Ranieri at 16/1 and Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 18/1.

In terms of the most secure jobs in the league, David Moyes (66/1), Thomas Tuchel (100/1) and Jürgen Klopp (100/1) are the least likely to leave next.
