Next Manager to be sacked odds
During the Premier League season, it isn't uncommon for a manager to be sacked, with the financial implications surrounding finishing as high up the table as possible or even staying in the league in the case of some teams. When looking at the Premier league manager to leave their club, there are a number of important elements that need to be taken into consideration including form, expectations and fixtures. If a team has won 0 games but only faced teams in the top six, it's unlikely that a manager will be sacked, if they're losing to teams they are expected to beat, then you'll start to see changes. For example, for the opening nine games of the Premier League season, Everton have arguably had the easiest run of games but sit narrowly above the relegation zone, meaning later in the season, he may find himself in trouble. On the other hand, Liverpool have had a tough start facing Chelsea, Newcastle, Tottenham and Brighton away from home but look set for a credible season, meaning we'll likely see Jurgen Klopp finish the season, something that the betting odds weren't predicting at one point last season.
Current 2023/24 Premier League manager to leave odds
As it stands there are two managers who look likely to be the next managerial casualtyin 2024, the sack race odds favour Manchester United and Crystal Palace's managers. Both teams have tricky fixtures and it will be a lot easier for Roy Hodgson to save his job than Erik Ten Hag,
Just one win could save either of these two managers jobs but football clubs are unforgiving but Bournemouth showed that sacking your manager isn't always the best thing to do, as after 10 games, they had a worse record than Crystal Palace did in 2017, when Frank De Boer was sacked as the worst managerial record in Premier League history, Andoni Iraola is now one of the most secure managers in the League.
In the instance of Palace, when they sacked De Boer, they won their very next game against Chelsea under Roy Hodgson, could the board at both clubs have this in mind? Particularly as Palace finished that season in 11th position.
Who is the favourite to be sacked next?
Erik Ten Hag is the current favourite to be sacked at odds of under 7/4. Following his sacking, you'll be able to find betting odds for the Next Manchester United manager.
Premier League manager sackings on the rise!
A manager losing their job is an unfortunate side-effect of a team under performing in the Premier League and when looking at the betting odds for the next manager to be sacked, it is worth taking into consideration that manager sackings are on the rise. There have been ten or more manager sackings during ever season since 2005/06 but during last season, history was made was there were 32 manager changes during the campaign starting with Scott Parker being succeeded by Gary O'Neil in August 2022 to five managers leaving their clubs on June 30th.
For this particular betting market it is worth taking into consideration that only manager sackings apply for this particular betting market. Therefore, Andrew Crofts being replaced by Roberto De Zerbi wouldn't impact your bet but Graham Potter leaving Brighton would win the bet if you backed Potter to be the next manager to leave his club and then checked out the next Brighton manager odds and backed De Zerbi, that would be a separate bet.
Both 2022/23 and 21/22 sit in the top five seasons for manager departures during the season and the 2023/24 season has already surpassed the 1995/96 campaign and the 1992/93 campaign where only two managers lost their jobs across both seasons. It's unlikely this season will set a record high in regards to managerial sackings but it wouldn't surprise anybody if the number reached double figures once again.
2023/24 Managers who to leave their clubs

Which clubs have sacked the most managers in Premier League history?
There are two teams with the most Premier League manager changes in history (not including caretaker managers), one is currently in the league and one is not. The team currently sat in the Championship is Southampton who have had 19 different managers during their stay in the Premier League with 12 of those occurring during the months of August and May. They are tied with Chelsea, who also have 19 managerial changes with 12 occurring during the selected months.
Following those two clubs are arguably the teams with the safest managers this season, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur, both clubs have had a solid start to the season and it is unlikely that either team will see their manager league in the coming season.
Arsenal and Manchester United are perhaps unsurprisingly the clubs with the lowest sackings per season with Arsenal changing their manager just four times during the Premier League era and Manchester United with just five different managers. Although current Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag does find himself towards to the top of the list in Premier League sack race.
