West Ham manager betting update: Odds on previous favourite drop dramatically

Upton Park

West Ham United are still searching for a manager to replace Sam Allardyce.

West Ham United are yet to confirm who will be the man coming in to replace former boss Sam Allardyce.

However, the bookies suggest that Slaven Bilic is the preferred choice with most punters at a best price of 2/5 on the current market.

Bilic has decent experience in the European game and also has the fact that he used to be a West Ham player working for him.

It’s then a big jump out to Marcelo Bielsa at 12/5, with the Marseille boss likely to bring an entertaining brand of attacking football to the table should he get the job.

David Moyes and Garry Monk are both 16/1 shots and Unai Emery, who was favourite at one point last week, has drifted further out in the betting to a current price of 33/1.

Whoever West Ham opt for, that manager has to be backed over the course of the summer to get the Hammers into a good position, where they are well placed to fight for a top half finish in the Premier League as well as progression in Europe.
