West Ham manager betting update: Three clear options, odds drift on outsiders

West Ham Upton Park

West Ham United are carefully searching for their next manager.

West Ham United need to make the right call over their next managerial appointment, with pressure on the club to establish themselves in the top half of the Premier League table before the move to the Olympic Stadium.

Slaven Bilic remains favourite, with the only fluctuation in his odds seeing him frequently go from odds on to odds against by a fine margin.

He’s currently a 4/5 option and had the experience of having previously played for the club, which works in his favour.

Second favourite hasn’t changed with Marcelo Bielsa still fancied by plenty of punters. He is an 8/1 shot which shows the heavy support Bilic continues to receive on a daily basis.

Unai Emery and former Manchester United manager David Moyes remain outside bets at prices of 10/1 and 12/1 respectively.

Steve McClaren and Michael Laudrup are also outsiders, but the odds for both coaches have dropped substantially overnight suggesting they are out of the equation.

It was always going to be a risk for West Ham to go with a new manager because of the security Sam Allardyce provided but Bilic would definitely be a positive choice.
