spokesperson Charlie McCann: “We saw money at 33/1 overnight and stood the price for a while before cutting him to 16/1. That didn’t stop the gamble and he continued to be backed at all rates down to 4/1. We couldn’t see Lineker leaving the Beeb to go to Sky originally and if honest are still of the opinion that the money is misplaced but those on at 33/1 will be on good terms with themselves now.
Who will replace Richard Keys at Sky Sports?
Dave Jones 7/4 (from 6/4)
Ben Shepherd 7/2 (from 3/1)
Gary Lineker 4/1 (from 33/1)
Ed Chamberlin 5/1 (from 3/1)
