Manager Markets & Types of Bets

Manager betting markets are now one of most popular in the sport of football. Every single day of the year there are a multitude of new rumours relating to a manager and his future at a certain club, whether he is coming under-fire or in line for a move to another team. Nowadays managers are under pressure like never before and are constantly having to deal with questions concerning their job.

The Sack Race brings you up-to-date listings of all the current managerial vacancies as well as the more popular manager markets which are constantly on going. As soon as a job vacancy opens up, or a position comes under threat, we provide you with the latest Next Manager Odds, supplied by all the major bookmakers. We organise these in a way that shows the best available odds, which means you are always sure to get a great price.

The manager odds differ depending on the relevancy of the respective market. For example, if a vacancy has only just opened up then the odds will fluctuate by the minute. In this case it is common to see a number of managers going from complete outsiders to odds-on favourites in no time whatsoever.

In contrast some of the top teams, such as Man Utd, almost permanently have a Next Manager Market up-and-running which tends to be relatively stable, that is until a new rumour comes out of nowhere. Once Sir Alex Ferguson eventually announces his retirement the next Man Utd Manager Market is likely to explode into epic proportions and could easily become one of the busiest markets of all time.

As well as bringing you odds and information on all the club manager markets we also focus on the English and Scottish leagues, with the Next Premier League Manager To Be Sacked market particularly popular. This tends to run from the start to the end of the season and often changes by the week. At the beginning of the 2011/12 season Steve Kean was the heavy favourite to be the first manager to lose his job, however, the Scot somehow managed to hold onto his job and is still in charge of Blackburn Rovers today, despite the club’s relegation to the Championship.

The advent of social networking websites such as Twitter and Facebook have had a huge impact in the way that news is both processed and managed, with rumours and speculation now spreading like wildfire. Speculation about a manager’s future is now heavily influenced by these websites along with newspaper reports and of course Sky Sports News, which are all worth keeping an eye on throughout the year.

There are certain managers who always seem to be in the running for a vacancy as soon as it opens up. The main culprits include Alan Curbishley, Rafa Benitez, Steve Bruce and until he took the Sunderland job Martin O’Neill. When the new manager odds first come up for a certain club it may be worth having a glance at some of the outsiders at this early stage as their odds could dramatically shorten within the next couple of days. This method is sure to earn you a few pounds if the outsider eventually lands the job.
