The Millers are on the hunt for their third manager of the campaign following last month's surprise exit of Kenny Jackett who quit his position after only five games at the helm.
The rock-bottom Championship outfit have endured a woeful start to the season, winning only one of their 19 matches to date, with their meagre tally of 7 points leaving the club an eye-popping 13 points adrift of safety.
On top of that the south Yorkshire outfit have registered only a single point from their last dozen games, while that sole victory dates back to August.
These abysmal statistics are no doubt contributing factors as to why Rotherham have struggled to lure in a new boss to the New York Stadium, although owner Tony Stewart claims that he's received a plethora of CVs.
And now the latest move in the market gives an indication that the club's search for an eighth manager under Stewart could be coming to an end.
On Monday morning Pressley was a 14/1 outsider for the post, but during the day he was sliced down to just 1/2, replacing former Millers boss Moore at the summit of the market.
The 43-year-old has been out-of-work since leaving Fleetwood back in July, while he's previously had spells at Coventry and Falkirk, winning the Scottish Challenge Cup with the latter.
Other names in the betting include interim boss Paul Warne (9/1), Southend manager Phil Brown (12/1) and former Southampton gaffer Nigel Adkins who is out at 20/1.
