West Ham manager betting update: Decision imminent, the market reacts on favourite

West Ham Tube Sign

West Ham United are set to announce their next manager, with support on the betting market clear.

The odds for the next manager of West Ham United have taken a dramatic turn overnight, with Slaven Bilic moving into a very short price of 1/16.

After the club announced on their website that a decision would shortly be announced over the next boss, the market has responded with plenty of cash going on the ex-Hammers star.

Bilic would be a very good choice for the Hammers and someone who is well equipped to take the team by the scruff of the neck and drive them forward over the next ten months before the move to the Olympic Stadium at Stratford.

There has been a little bit of support on the market for the second favourite, Marcelo Bielsa, who has shortened slightly to 8/1 but that’s still a massive price when looking at the support for Bilic on the current market.

They seem like the only two options for punters in terms of West Ham’s announcement with odds drifting on other candidates who are now well and truly considered outsiders in the eyes of most West Ham United fans.
