BetVictor make Paulo Di Canio 4/5 to be the next Southampton manager after cash rolled in for Saints boss Nigel Adkins to move to Blackpool.
Adkins is already the 4/6 favourite at BetVictor to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post after his Southampton team went down 2-0 to West Brom last night but he has now been backed down to 11/8 from 66/1 to take the Bloomfield Road position vacated recently by Ian Holloway.
Nevertheless, Portsmouth’s Michael Appleton still heads the betting for the Blackpool job at 4/7.
Charlie McCann of BetVictor told Betrescue, “It has been one of the craziest mornings of football manager betting that I can remember. How can Adkins be 11/8 for Blackpool?”
“We have had a book on who will be the next Saints’ boss, irrespective of timescale, for over a month, ” he added, “we make Paulo Di Canio 4/5 favourite having been 33/1 when we opened the market on the 2nd October.”
