All on Dyche, or Allardyce? Punters lump on Big Sam to Everton

Sean Dyche remains in pole position for the vacant Everton manager’s job, but punters are favouring Sam Allardyce in the race to Goodison.

Big Sam is an 8/1 shot for the position, some distance behind Dyche and caretaker boss David Unsworth (both 5/2), but has attracted more bets with us than any other candidate..

Odds on Unsworth getting the job permanently have shortened overnight from 7/2 – with the supporters’ backing, and three winnable Premier League fixtures coming up, the untried coach is in a great position to take the role full-time.

Spokesman Paddy Power said: “Big Sam’s been linked with every vacancy going this season, for understandable reasons, but this is the first time we’ve seen a serious flow of cash on him returning to football management.

“It’d be a quite spectacular throw of the Allardyce for Everton, but if ever a boss was made for managing Toffees, it’s him.”


5/2  Sean Dyche
