Next Everton Manager: Sizeable Gamble On Koeman Sees Odds Cut

William Hill have this morning, cut the odds of Ronald Koeman becoming the next Everton manager after a rush of bets were placed on the current Southampton manager. He has come in to 5/4 from 2/1 with almost every bet on Thursday placed on him. Unai Emery is the 5/2 second favourite with Frank de Boer 5/1.

“Koeman has been the subject of bets of up to £100 this morning while the biggest bet we have seen elsewhere has been £3 on David Moyes at 7/1,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “This is the first big movement that we have seen in about a week on this market and we think something could be happening soon.”


Next permanent Everton manager: 5/4 Ronald Koeman; 5/2 Unai Emery; 5/1 Frank de Boer; 7/1 David Moyes; 7/1 Manuel Pellegrini; 10/1 Roberto Mancini; 14/1 Paulo Fonseca; 16/1 Ryan Giggs; 20/1 BAR
