Silva 10/11 to leave Watford and join Everton as Sam Allardyce’s odds drift
It appeared last week as though Sam Allardyce was in pole position to become the next manager of Everton, although his odds have been drifting in the past few days and Marco Silva is now overriding favourite.
Silva is 10/11 with William Hill to take charge of the Toffees, with the Portuguese having only joined Watford FC in the summer after earning rave reviews for his work with Hull City last season.
Silva’s stock is high and has enjoyed a bright start to the season with the Hornets despite a recent run of defeats which included a 3-2 defeat at Goodison Park.
Silva can still be backed at 6/4 with Ladbrokes and it would be costly exercise to buy the manager out of his contract at Vicarage Road. Perhaps the alternative is to hire David Unsworth and he’s trading at odds of 3/1 with BetVictor.
Unsworth has made little secret of the fact he wants to take charge of Everton on a longer-term basis and it’s possible that he’ll be given the reins until the end of the season.
However, results haven’t been particularly kind since Ronald Koeman left and Sean Dyche still seems to be on the radar of the Merseyside club, with the Burnley boss trading at 6/1 with BetVictor to leave Turf Moor for this new project.
Allardyce has drifted out to 14/1 and it appears as though Big Sam will be remaining semi-retired for the time being, while Thomas Tuchel and Guus Hiddink are now trading at odds of 25/1.
