You bet 'Moyes to quit' rumour was misplaced
David Moyes was cut from 16/1 to 3/1 by William Hill to be the next Premier League manager to leave his club as a gamble developed during the early part of Wednesday that he was about to leave Everton.
But with no supporting evidence to back up the claims, his odds have drifted back out, doubling to 6/1.
"Given that the market often anticipates managerial departures - Sam Allardyce was gambled on significantly just before he quit out of the blue earlier this season, for example" said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe. "But in this instance as there was no particularly worrying pattern to the gamble, or substantial bets involved we quickly decided that this rumour was probably based on Moyes' frustration and outspoken comments after Tuesday night's defeat to Arsenal, and pushed the odds back out without being knocked over in the rush to get on."
David Moyes is 4/11 with Hills still to be Everton boss on the first day of next season, 2/1 not to.
