Gamble On Palace To See A Silva Lining After Sam Departure

William Hill can report a significant move for Marco Silva to get the Crystal Palace job. The Portuguese manager is 6/5 having been 6/1 just 24 hours ago. Claudio Ranieri and Roberto Mancini are the 5/1 joint second favourites.


“We have seen a significant gamble on Silva getting the job,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “Nothing huge but countless numbers of smaller bets that have seen his odds tumble in the last day or so.”


Next permanent Crystal Palace manager: 6/5 Marco Silva; 5/1 Claudio Ranieri; 5/1 Roberto Mancini; 7/1 Sean Dyche; 10/1 Slavisa Jokanovic; 16/1 Roy Hodgson; 16/1 Ryan Giggs; 20/1 BAR
