First managerial casualty this weekend?
It’s 3/1 any Premier League boss is out of a job by the time the weekend is up according to Ladbrokes.
In what could be a crucial weekend for the future of a series of under-fire managers the bookies make Adkins' Saints odds-on at 4/5 to remain rooted to the bottom when the fixture card is up with QPR even money chances. Reading are the 12/1 outsiders to end up bottom of the pile.
In higher reaches of the table Mancini also appears to be a man on the edge and he can be backed at 5/1 to be sent to the stands at any time during City's match against Spurs.
Andy Carroll returns to Tyneside for the second time and as well as a full market on what will happen to the striker first in the match, the bookies are also offering odds on a series of badge kissing specials with 400/1 the price he managed to kiss both the West Ham & Newcastle crests in that match.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes told Football Betting News: "The sack race betting looks odds-on to erupt this weekend. Several men at all ends of the table appear to be on the brink."
