Managers Betting Odds at Bet UK
When betting on managerial status in football there are typically two areas of betting that is covered, departures and incomings. Managerial sackings and resignations happen almost every month in leagues across the world. This means that there are betting odds and markets for the designated topic. Whenever a big team in the world has a vacancy there are always rumours based on which manager will take on the role next. For example, at the start of this season, the seats at Stamford Bridge and White Hart Lane had about 20 candidates rumoured for each role. Manager betting odds tend to be heavily stacked in the favour of one or two names who have been heavily prominent in English football in recent years.
Premier League managers betting
As it stands all Premier League teams have a manager and it looks highly unlikely that we'll see any changes in managers before the new season. During the campaign, you'll likely see odds rise and fall around the status of Premier League managers and who will be the first to be sacked in a season. You have to go back to 2017 /18 for the last time the first managerial sacking came from a side that wasn't newly promoted. Which means that Scott Parker, Marco Silva and Steve Cooper statistically should be the first managers looking at the sack. Fulham probably have the highest expectations of the three teams, meaning Marco Silva may be the best bet early on.
Next Manager to be sacked betting market
When looking at the next manager to be sacked, it's good to look beyond the last few games, sacking a manager takes months of preparation so manager markets are usually fairly easy to predict, particularly the sack race market. Some of the main reasons managers get sacked are if a team doesn't perform well in the Champions League for a club like Liverpool or Manchester City or if a team looks likely to play Championship football next season, their manager will be the odds on favourite to be sacked in a last ditch effort to stay in the league.
A large part of this betting market can be determined by the owners history, for example, if a team is in the relegation zone with Nottingham Forest, like Steve Cooper was for the latter part of the season, they're more likely to stick with them than the likes of Leeds United or Aston Villa.
Club's Next Manager betting odds
After a manager is sacked you'll find betting odds for the next manager of a club. The hiring of an interim manager won't pay out on the next pl manager betting market and it will be the next permanent manager that provides a payout. If the current manager of a team is under pressure and could lose their job, it might be worth checking the club's next manager market and get ahead of the betting odds.

Premier League Managers who left their clubs 2022/23
|08/09/22||Graham Potter||Brighton & Hove Albion|
|20/10/22||Steven Gerrard||Aston Villa|
|06/02/23||Jesse Marsch||Leeds United|
|17/03/23||Patrick Vieira||Crystal Palace|
|26/03/23||Antonio Conte||Tottenham Hotspur|
|24/04/23||Cristian Stellini||Tottenham Hotspur|
|03/05/23||Javi Gracia||Leeds United|
Tottenham's Antonio Conte was the most high profile sacking. However, many Spurs fans didn't want their manager to leave but Antonio Conte seemed to have decided that enough was enough, his replacement Stellini performed poorly with a dismal 6-1 defeat to Newcastle United acting as the final straw. A number of teams had three managers or more across the season and ended up performing poorly with almost all of them.
Betting On European Managers
Outside of the UK, there are dozens of opportunities to bet on football managers across the world with the likes of PSG, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid desperate for European success, it can often cost a manager his job if he fails to deliver. Bayern in-particular have had 14 managers in 15 years with only three of those being on a caretaker basis. The longest-serving in that time was Pep Guardiola who managed for three seasons. However, with teams in Germany, it is often very obvious who is going to replace each manager once they've been sacked so the odds will be considerably lower than those of potential Premier League managers.
Next Manager of a team betting
The most popular market for managerial betting in football comes in the form of the next manager odds. This market opens up once a manager is sacked or set to be sacked, depending on the sportsbook. The two most popular markets for this last season were 'Next Chelsea manager' and 'Next Spurs manager' after Graham Potter and Antonio Conte were subsequently sacked at their clubs. Chelsea's failures have become well documented at the start of Ted Bohely's reign as Chelsea chairman, with many questioning the logic of the American, especially after replacing Graham Potter with Frank Lampard.
Manager Specials Betting
When a new manager takes over a club, you may also find manager specials regarding the manager and the clubs' performance under the new boss. For example, the most recent high-profile managerial change in England, comes in the form of Mauricio Pochettino to Chelsea. So, you'll be able to find specials betting regarding their performance in the Premier League, domestic cups and Europa League.
This market is also sometimes available for managers who are under pressure, a prime example of this is England manager Gareth Southgate. However, in this scenario, the market opportunities are typically negative, such as Southgate leaving before the World Cup, England failing to qualify for the knockout rounds of the World Cup etc;
Football Managers Betting FAQs
I can't find betting markets for the bet I want to place, why is this?
If you can't find betting markets for the bet you wish to place there are a number of reasons why this may be the case, it could be that betting is suspended and that market has been removed. Alternatively, it could be that the sportsbook has decided not to add the market to it's selections. This typically demonstrates that the market simply doesn't have value at present, this could be due to historically low betting numbers on that market or simply low interest.
Who will be the next Premier League manager to be sacked?
Ultimately, nobody knows for sure. Teams can be incredibly patient with poor results and some may be incredibly hasty with their decisions. If Watford remained in the Premier League, they would always be a good bet. However, out of the top teams in the division, one poor start could create a new favourite to be sacked in the rumour mill every week.
Which club have sacked the most managers since 2000?
Crystal Palace have historically sacked the most managers since 2000 with a total of 29. In second place was Leicester City with 28. However, after Leicester's relegation, Palace sit a large distance ahead of any other team. Last season, we backed Crystal Palace, Southampton and Leicester City all to sack their manager during the season based on their previous record and within the year, it seemed almost inevitable that Brendan Rodgers, Ralph Hassenhuttl and Patrick Vieira would follow suit.
Are Football Manager bets the easiest to win?
Typically no, the easiest bets to win can often be found in live betting markets as you can often judge how a game is going to go when you watch. Managerial appointments can be an 'easier' bet given the longevity that goes into the selection, picking the right moment to place the bet is crucial, as you'll either get odds that are too short or pick a selection without a good level of information.
