Midlands Based Gamble On Big Sam To Take Sunderland Reins
William Hill have once again cut the odds on Sam Allardyce becoming the next Sunderland manager after a number of large bets from the Midlands – the biggest of which was £500 at 13/8.
He is now the clear 5/4 favourite ahead of Bob Bradley at 11/4 and Nigel Pearson at 7/2.
“After an overnight gamble saw Bob Bradley move into contention, it is now Big Sam who leads the race again,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
Next permanent Sunderland manager: 5/4 Sam Allardyce; 11/4 Bob Bradley; 7/2 Nigel Pearson; 14/1 Robbie Stockdale; 16/1 Sean Dyche; 20/1 BAR
