David Unsworth has seen his odds slashed into second favourite to become the permanent boss of Everton.
In the last 24 hours, our football traders have seen barely a penny laid on any other runners and riders in the frame.
And Unsworth’s odds have crashed into just 6/4, from 10/1, in less than 24 hours. That also follows up a big 3-2 comeback win over Watford under the ex-Toffees defender.
Sam Allardyce remains the odds-on favourite, but the move for Unsworth means his price has drifted out to 4/6, having been as short as 1/7 at one stage.
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “Unsworth is all the rage with punters at the moment. If the money’s on the nose, the ‘glorified PE teacher’ could soon be getting a very big promotion.”
An announcement is expected on the situation over the course of the international break.
