Warnock heads betting for Wolves job

Warnock is a 7/2 chance

Coral have installed Neil Warnock as their betting favourite to replace Mick McCarthy as manager of Wolves after the latter was sacked by the Midlands club earlier today.

McCarthy’s days had looked numbered as punters backed him into odds-on favouritism to be the next Premier League manager to get the sack after his side lost 5-1 at home to rivals West Bromwich Albion on Sunday. And bettors’ intuition proved to be accurate when the former Sunderland and Republic of Ireland boss was given his marching orders on Monday morning.

Bookmakers are split in their opinion as to who will be his successor, with Alan Curbishley, Steve Bruce, Billy Davies and Rafa Benitez all quoted at single figure odds with various bookmakers.

“The opening list of betting features some less obvious names as well as the usual suspects, but given their precarious League position, we have made Neil Warnock our initial favourite to be handed the urgent task of keeping Wolves in the top flight,” said David Stevens of Coral.

Warnock is a 7/2 chance in Coral’s next Wolves manager betting market, followed by Bruce at odds of 5/1, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also at 5/1 and Huddersfield boss Lee Clark at 8/1.

The same bookmaker make Wolves a 4/6 chance to be relegated this season, and they are 11/4 to finish bottom of the table.

Wanderers currently occupy 18th position in the Premier League table and are just two points ahead of bottom-place Wigan. Having been knocked out of the FA Cup by Birmingham they do not have a game this coming weekend and will next be in action against Newcastle at the end of February.
