West Ham manager betting update: Odds shorten on David Moyes

There is still a clear favourite as West Ham United hunt for a new manager.

West Ham United’s search for a new manager continues after the very swift announcement that Sam Allardyce would not be staying in his role last weekend.

The clear favourite at odds of 8/15 at the time of writing with OddsChecker is former player Slaven Bilic.

Bilic would be a popular choice for a number of reasons and he’s someone who would certainly try and grab the side by the scruff of the neck and drive them forward.

The odds on former Everton and Manchester United manager David Moyes becoming the next West Ham boss have shortened in one places, but he’s someway off of Bilic as the second favourite at 6/1.

Unai Emery has drifted out slightly at 8/1 while Roberto Di Matteo and Rafael Benitez have both stayed consistent as more long shot options.

This is a massive decision that officials at West Ham need to be careful over and get right, because of how important it is for the Hammers to be playing European football by the time the Olympic Stadium move comes around at the end of next season.
