Sack race favourite wins again as Wagner goes – bad omen for Puel?

January 16th, 2019 Football, Home, Media & Journalism, News & Events, Press Release

David Wagner has become the fourth Premier League manager to lose his job and the Bookmakers are getting it right so far, with the man to go being the Sack Race favourite every time so far.

Normally the Sack Race market comes up with a shock, but this time around they have been spot on with each pick.

OddsMonkey has been tracking the Sack Race all season, and for the four dismissals so far this term – they were each the favourites for the chop.

Month Favourite for Sack Race
July Javi Gracia
August Mark Hughes
August Jose Mourinho
September Manuel Pellegrini
October Jose Mourinho
November Slavisa Jokanovic

December Mark Hughes

January Claude Puel

Now looking ahead to the current Sack Race there is an out-and-out favourite with Leicester City boss Claude Puel tipped for the boot next – although he had held favourtism for much of December and January.

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “The Sack Race is always a fascinating market, but the Bookmakers have been spot on this year, normally at least once they get caught by surprise but so far this season they have acted with plenty of time to be behind the favourite.

“And if their form continues, the omens are not good for Claude Puel, who does appear to be under huge pressure.”
