Claudio Ranieri's odds on Sack Race market shorten after poor set of results

Claudio Ranieri was among the favourites in the early Premier League Sack Race last season, although the Italian’s amazing heroics with Leicester City saw them become champions and he was clearly untouchable as far as his position at the King Power was concerned.
It was a modest start to the 2016/17 campaign and quickly clear that the Foxes wouldn’t trouble the Champions League places this season, although City have really begun to plummet and William Hill now have Ranieri as the 11/8 favourite to win the latest heat of the Sack Race.
The Sack Race betting market prices up each top flight manager and customers can bet on which man will lose his job next, with this market also including resignations and parting by mutual consent. However, Leicester’s current predicament means there has been a steady stream of money for a manager who achieved the unthinkable last season.
Aitor Karanka has taken a walk in the market despite a 1-0 defeat at White Hart Lane, with the Spaniard now 5/2 with Hills after previously being odds-on and it appears that things have calmed down at the Riverside after the Middlesbrough manager made some pretty scathing comments.
No Manager to Leave is an 8/1 chance and perhaps is worth a little bet if you think that Ranieri is bombproof, while Claude Puel is surely safe despite his 12/1 quote, with Southampton looking safe and through to the EFL Cup final.
