McKenna now 1/3 odds on at Skybet and Bet365 to take Brighton Job 23:15 - May 20 with 5942 viewsDublinBlue84

Odds seem to be shortening by the hour.

Suggests there may have been a fair amount whacked on.

I could go and put on £20 right now and change the price further. These threads of the odds really are incredibly pointless and unhelpful. It puts fear into those that don't understand how betting markets work.

Not true at all, actually.

Managers have gone as short as 1/10 only for things to go tits up with negotiations etc.

1/3 isn't actually THAT short a price.

That can indeed be the case, but generally people don't get to as short odds as McKenna is now on that alone, it can lower the odds certainly though but not to that extent.

Personally from everything I have heard from certain circles it looks increasingly likely to happen. See earlier posts from Phil and Joe as well on other threads.

rarely.

And as you say. In those cases things have probably gone wrong in late negotiations. But more often than not that doesn't happen.

Farioli just gone evens on Bet Fair exchanges.

I suspect the betting at this stage will be moved by very small levels. Many sources have claimed no contact has been made at this stage so it's pure speculation at this point

That doesn't really mean a lot. If I place an unmatched lay of £1@6, he suddenly moves to 5/1 just with my single bet.

‘It has nothing to do with reality’.

This thread is full of nonsense where people do not understand gambling markets at all. Your comment is right up there.

I worked in the betting industry for 19 years until recently and it takes a few hundred quid to push in the betting markets on a special like a managers market.

I really wouldn't read too much into prices on betting sites on a manager.

I remember working at Hills at the time circa 2001/2 ish i think and we had a few punters put £50 on Ray Graydon to be the next Villa boss and the price tumbled. Needless to say he wasn't appointed!

If you pay attention to the x to move to y markets you see it all the time. Because they attract so few bets they move a long way from relatively small amounts.

While there seems to be something in this one, it is very easy to move the market to 1/3 and then have it fall back again.

Indeed.

I posted on here before Wilder left Sheff United to get on him at 7/1 to be the next manager sacked. That was at 8:32 am based on some def info from his side. By 9:02 it was 10/11. And into 1/5 with the same bookie by lunchtime. It wouldn’t have taken more than a few hundred to move the market at any stage.

Those of the punting persuasion.. by The_Romford_Blue 12 Mar 2021 8:32
Chris Wilder to be next manager to leave in the Premier League is 7/1 with Paddy Power. May be worth a few pence this morning within the next half hour possibly..

Gamble responsibly folks as always

I’ve just laid him at 2.4 on the exchange. I hoovered up the entire £9 liquid for a liability of £12.60 😁

It does. I am a professional gambler and have been for many years. You’d be surprised how often my bets can change the odds on markets with much more liquid than a manager market.

It’s just frustrating seeing so many messages about this when the odds mean next to nothing.

I did do a thread on here a few years back explaining various parts of the odds compiling side of it to try and help people when this sort of stuff out before. I’d (and others) would link my post for months and months in reply to nonsense such as some stuff you’ve seen in this thread itself whenever the same arguments came up but eventually it got forgotten and I’ve less than zero inclination to find it and explain stuff again.

You just have to grin and bear it that people will post stuff about betting on here as though they know what they’re talking about. Which is fine. But they will say things as fact when it’s anything but.

I was once told I had no idea what I’m talking about when I was quite literally replying from a betting shop that I’d opened and closed with nobody else in all day and was on a 14 hour shift. You have to laugh.
