Sack race odds: Dean Smith cut into favourite to be next Premier League manager sacked

Sack race odds: Dean Smith cut into favourite to be next Premier League manager sacked

Villa manager under pressure after four straight defeats...

A 4-1 defeat at home to West Ham on Sunday marked the fourth straight defeat for Dean Smith’s side who sit just three points above the relegation zone. 

As a result of their poor form, bookmakers have installed Dean Smith as the 2/1 favourite to be the next Premier League manager to lose his job.

In the last 24 hours, Dean Smith is the second most backed manager to leave next through oddschecker with 24.1% of bets just behind Daniel Farke who’s Norwich team sit bottom of the league on just two points.

Reports have suggested that Aston Villa’s next match against Southampton could be pivotal in deciding Smith’s future at the club.

Which other managers are under pressure?

Daniel Farke is the second favourite to be sacked next at a best price of 4/1, with reports suggesting that Norwich are actively looking at the prospect of bringing in a new manager.

Behind them is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who has seemingly bought himself some time after a 3-0 victory away to Spurs at the weekend that ultimately cost Nuno Espirito Santo his job.

Solskjaer is a best price of 5/1 to be sacked next despite being as short as 16/5 with another bookmaker.

Next Premier League manager to leave odds:

  • Dean Smith – 2/1
  • Daniel Farke – 4/1
  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – 5/1
  • Rafael Benitez – 9/1
  • Claudio Ranieri – 20/1
  • Brendan Rodgers – 20/1
