Indeed, Villa lost 2-1 at Stoke City as their woeful form continued. Manchester United's three wins in all competitions last week, however, have given Louis van Gaal a breath of fresh air. The Dutchman's odds have therefore drifted ever so slightly, while Garde's have shortened to 7/2 to be the next top-flight boss to leave his post.
Crystal Palace head coach Pardew, meanwhile, has now seen his Eagles side go 10 league games without a win. He still has LvG, Garde, Alex Neil and Steve McClaren ahead of him but Pardew's odds of leaving have shortened to 14/1.
The Baggies head coach had previously been a question mark, with his long-term future at the Hawthorns far from guaranteed.
But West Brom's 3-2 win over Crystal Palace has had a good effect on Pulis's odds, just as it has had a negative impact on Pardew's.
Will Aston Villa, Palace or West Brom go into next season with the same manager in charge?
