Another Major Gamble On Allardyce For England Job

William Hill have once again cut the odds of Sam Allardyce becoming England manager after a rush of bets on Monday morning including one wager of £2,000 from Essex. His odds have come in from 2/7 to 1/6. Jurgen Klinsmann is 7/1 second favourite.

“It looks as though Allardyce has as good as got the job and even his relatively prohibitive odds are not putting our customers off backing him for the England role,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Next permanent England manager: 1/6 Sam Allardyce; 7/1 Jurgen Klinsmann; 14/1 Eddie Howe; 16/1 Steve Brice; 20/1 Guus Hiddink; 25/1 BAR
