The former England number one has drifted out to 2/1 to make the squad.
Joe Hart looked nailed on to clinch one of the three goalkeeping slots last week, with Marathon Bet pricing him up at 1/4 to be picked alongside both Butland and Pickford.
However, this morning four bookies on Oddschecker’s site have lengthened his odds, and he can now be backed at 2/1.
Burnley's Nick Pope is expected to be the one to benefit and land a shock call-up to the England squad. The 26-year-old stopper has had a stellar season, and is now as short as 2/5 to go to the World Cup.
Pope’s call-up can still be backed at 6/4 to secure a place on the plane, however those odds are expected to shorten this morning. At the end of February, the former Charlton keeper could have been backed at 6/1 to make squad.
Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek “Punters believe Gareth Southgate will pick the Burnley man, as a massive 78% of the money placed in the betting market for the World Cup squad has been on Pope.
If Southgate was picking on form then it would be Pope over Hart, hands down.”
