Recent 2-0 Premier League loss to the leader, Liverpool puts West Ham United into a tough spot. The club has currently lost its fourth consecutive match and finds itself on the edge of the relegation. The only thing that keeps The Hammers away from the league’s bottom is just a single goal. The how much a big of a deal it is shows the number of bets placed on the relegation market. A 44% of all the relegation bets have been placed on West Ham during the 24 hours after their loss to The Reds.
Many top online bookmakers slashed their odds immediately due to such an overwhelming volume. Most of the leading bookies like Unibet
set their odds for West Ham relegation at 2.50 (3/2).

Hurts to say it, but that is not all the problems West Ham has to deal with. Taking into consideration what is going on with the club, it wasn’t of a big surprise to see its newly assigned manager being favoured to get sacked next. David Moyes joined the club just a month ago and have only had 6 games in charge of The Irons. Just like the “relegation” market, the “next managed to leave” one also received a huge volume of bets on the West Ham side. A 38% of all the bets back Moyes to be the next coach sacked.
A number of the leading betting operators like Ladbrokes
are offering the odds of 13.00 (12/1) for West Ham’s manager getting sacked next.
However, the best price for David Moyes departure can be found at William Hill
What is going to happen first for The Academy of Football? Is David Moyes really getting sacked after being in charge for just a month? Are we going to see West Ham United in the Premier League next season? Stay tuned to find out first.
