The best bookies waste little time revising their Premier League Sack Race betting market to allow customers to speculate and place bets when it comes to the next top-flight manager out of a job. Although Unibet go as short as 5/2 on no more sackings this season, with so many teams out of form it seems unlikely that we’ll get to the final game without anyone else being dismissed.

Will There Be Another Sack Race Winner This Season?
Incredibly, we’ve only seen Slaven Bilic and Frank Lampard get the chop during the 2020/21 Premier League season and it’s perfectly possible that all of the twenty current managers of the respective clubs will still be in charge when the final games of the season are played on 23 May.
Indeed, Unibet are now as short as 7/4 that the “No Manager to Leave” option is triggered although three months is a long time in football and we’ve seen some interesting price movements after the latest round of top-flight games, with Jose Mourinho and Steve Bruce potentially in the firing line at their respective clubs.
On the flip side, one wonders whether any top-flight owners or chairman have a real desire to make a change at their respective club. West Brom dispensed with Bilic much earlier in the season to hire Sam Allardyce, while Chelsea are known for quickly disposing of their managers, although other clubs tend to take a more measured view.
Mourinho Drifts For Sack Race as Bale Has an Impact
William Hill make Jose Mourinho their 10/3 favourite on the Premier League Sack Race betting market and things appear to be going sour for someone who was only appointed as Tottenham Hotspur manager in November 2019, with chairman Daniel Levy describing his hire as one of the leading coaches in world football.
While a sixth-placed finish at the end of the 2019/20 season wasn’t greeted with much derision, the fact that Spurs recently lost five out of six top-flight matches is causing plenty of consternation, despite Mourinho being typically bullish and claiming after a recent 2-1 defeat at West Ham that the better team lost.

This is a pretty standard soundbite that is issued by the former Chelsea and Manchester United manager, although the north London side are making solid progress in the Europa League and the fact that Gareth Bale has now broken into the first team hints at an exciting climax to a Premier League season where Spurs could still sneak a top four spot.
Many of the supporters weren’t exactly enthused by the arrival of Mourinho as a replacement for Mauricio Pochettino in the first place, although perhaps Levy will give the Portuguese another season to try and get things right, with the current campaign proving to be difficult and unpredictable for any number of reasons.

Can Bruce Last the Season at Newcastle United?
Steve Bruce has been described as beleaguered for much of the 2020/21 season and Newcastle United’s twenty-six points from twenty-six games illustrates the reason why the Toon Army would like a change of manager at St James’ Park, even if the current boss likes to point out that results weren’t altogether different when Rafael Benitez was in charge.
The bottom line is that the Magpies are now in serious relegation trouble after averaging just a point per game and they are only three points ahead of an improving Fulham team who are starting to get their act together under Scott Parker and are definitely the form horse compared to their Tyneside rivals.
Owner Mike Ashley will certainly not want the club to drop out of the Premier League again and betfair are as short as 21/10 about Bruce getting the axe at St James’ Park although some firms are as big as 9/2 about the Geordie and it’s plausible that he’ll be given the opportunity to see the season out to a potentially bitter end.
Will Every Premier League Manager Remain in Charge?
It’s often a dangerous game to bet on the “No Manager to Leave” option on the Premier League Sack Race football betting market, although there is an argument that all twenty managers will now remain in place until the final round of fixtures have been played.
In the space of two weeks, the price about no further sackings has tumbled from 14/1 to a best price 3/1 with betfair and there now seems the very real possibility that the various club owners will sit the current campaign out before making a decision when it comes to the manager in charge.
Klopp Drifting For Sack Race Despite Liverpool Wobble
After Liverpool’s recent 3-1 defeat at Leicester City, there were rumours of a dressing room bust-up and Jurgen Klopp deciding to throw in the towel after previously guiding the Reds to a Champions League and Premier League success. This sent the manager’s Sack Race odds tumbling and he went odds-on with some bookies before a press conference took place ahead of the win over Leipzig.
Klopp admitted that he was experiencing a rough patch as Liverpool FC manager but vowed to carry on and William Hill now chalk up 10/1 about the former Borussia Dortmund manager being the next candidate to leave their respective club, even if the Merseyside team recently lost at home to Everton for the first time in over twenty years.
Ultimately, Klopp has bags of credit still in the bank with Liverpool supporters and owners Fenway Sports Group who will be understanding of the German’s predicament, while a 2-0 win at Sheffield United along with a likely Champions League last eight spot hint at brighter times ahead.

Allardyce Running Out of Games to Save West Brom
Sam Allardyce has been the saviour for so many football clubs during his long and successful managerial career and it’s odd to see one of his teams now struggling so badly in the Premier League. Perhaps it was always going to be the impossible job to keep West Brom afloat for the former England boss whose only highlight was seeing the Baggies win the Black Country derby at Molineux.
Many thought that Albion beating their arch-rivals could act as the springboard to help the Midlands club stay in the top flight, although West Brom have taken just two points from their ensuing six matches and it would now take a major miracle for them to finish above at least three other teams in the top flight this season.
It’s clear that Allardyce was brought in to keep the club afloat and perhaps the 66-year-old will baulk at any suggestion that he remains in place at The Hawthorns for the 2021/22 season in the Championship, although he has previously steered Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United to the Premier League from that division.

Hodgson Hangs On For Now at Crystal Palace
Few punters would have had Crystal Palace’s clash against Burnley as a 3-0 away win, although it certainly strengthens the argument for Roy Hodgson stepping aside as Eagles manager sooner rather than later. Palace swiftly found themselves two goals down and don’t yet have enough points to be declared categorically safe.
Betfair have 11/2 about Hodgson on the Sack Race betting market and it’s entirely possible that the former England manager will decide to call it a day and potentially announce his retirement from football management, with Palace languishing in fourteenth place.
The uncertainty over Roy Hodgson’s future at Crystal Palace FC continues to grow and it would now be a surprise to see the former England manager remain in charge at Selhurst Park beyond the current campaign. Hodgson’s contract comes to end this summer and the coach himself isn’t sure of what is going to happen next.

Will Nuno Walk the Plank at Wolves?
Nuno Espirito Santo was nowhere near the head of the Premier League Sack Race betting market when the 2020/21 season began, although it’s been a real struggle for the Portuguese at Molineux this term and it’s plausible that club owners Fosun International might look to now make a change at the top.
Paddy Power certainly think Nuno is a contender on the Sack Race market with their 16/1 quote although it should be borne in mind that the former Porto coach has completely transformed the fortunes of Wanderers, steering them to promotion from the Championship at the first time of asking.
Wolves then landed sixth spot and seventh place in their first two seasons in the top flight and perhaps the current manager can be forgiven for a flat campaign which has seen the Midlands team achieve just 33 points from 25 games played thus far.
Parker Losing His Battle to Keep Fulham Afloat
Fulham being relegated from the Premier League this season is looking like an increasing prospect although the Cottagers going down isn’t going to tarnish Scott Parker’s reputation as a football manager. The former England midfielder is still a relative rookie although a recent 2-0 win at Everton has at least thrown the west London side a lifeline.
While Fulham are now competitive in practically every match they play, there is a distinct lack of goals holding back the team and they are seven points away from safety at the time of writing, with Parker potentially walking from Craven Cottage if it gets to the stage where it’s mathematically impossible for him to remain in place.
Due to the money coming for other managers, Parker has drifted out to the 33/1 mark and it will be intriguing to see if Fulham can further close the gap and give themselves a genuine chance of remaining in the top flight.

Will Every Premier League Manager Remain in Charge?
It’s often a dangerous game to bet on the “No Manager to Leave” option on the Premier League Sack Race betting market, although there is an argument that all 20 managers will now remain in place until the final round of fixtures have been played.
In the case of managers such as Sam Allardyce and Roy Hodgson, they might remain in place until the season’s fixtures have been completed before stepping down and the fact that the transfer window has closed means that any new arrivals would have their hands tied in terms of changing the squad.
Paddy Power offer a best price 5/1 about no manager being sacked and we can see the merits in having a speculative bet on this outcome considering that the wager gets closer to profiting with the passing of every day.
