Huge Gamble On Allardyce For Everton – Bets Of Up To £1000 Make Him Favourite

Earlier on Monday, William Hill reported a gamble on Sam Allardyce that had seen his odds of becoming the next permanent Everton manager come in from 8/1 to 5/1. The morning gamble has not subsided and now the former Bolton boss is the 6/4 favourite attracting bets of up to £1000 at a time to take over from Ronald Koeman with David Unsworth and Sean Dyche now both 4/1 joint second favourites.


“Allardyce has suggested he would be interested in the job and this gamble indicates he is now the frontrunner,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


Next permanent Everton manager: 6/4 Sam Allardycde; 4/1 David Unsworth; 4/1 Sean Dyche; 6/1 Marco Silva; 6/1 Thomas Tuchel; 9/1 Chris Coleman; 16/1 BAR
