*Odds correct as of January 27, 2023

The best betting apps now have Sean Dyche trading as betting favourite on their Next Everton FC Manager market. The former Burnley boss could have the right profile to help steer the Toffees out of the Premier League relegation zone and the money has once again come for this candidate.

Previously to this, Marcelo Bielsa was the shortest-priced candidate with the football betting sites, with reports emerging that the Argentine was the preferred choice of the club's board. The Argentine flew into England this week to hold talks, although it currently appears that Dyche is in pole position.

It appears unlikely that former boss Sam Allardyce will return to Goodison Park, according to the bets bookmakers, and the same applies to former player Wayne Rooney. Allardyce would not be a popular appointment, while Rooney seems likely to stay put in the United States for now.

The Money Comes for Bielsa

Marcelo Bielsa has recently been linked to the head coach position with the Mexico national team, although it's noticeable that the 67-year-old's odds have been shortening on the 'Next Everton Manager' betting market this week. This would be a massive coup for the Merseyside club, considering the vast experience boasted by someone who was most recently in charge of Leeds United.

Bielsa is held in high regard by Leeds supporters, and perhaps Everton fans would warm to someone who would relish the chance to rebuild a team at Goodison Park. It's also worth noting that the former Argentina and Chile manager took charge of the Whites in the Championship and has the experience of steering a club back to the top flight.

Much depends on whether Bielsa has the appetite to return to England and take on a project at a massive English football club. The latest betting odds suggest that he's certainly on the board's shortlist to replace Lampard. However, there are reports that the coach has reservations about getting embroiled in a relegation battle and one that currently looks like an uphill one.

Sean Dyche Lined Up for EPL Return?

Before being sacked, Sean Dyche had consistently kept Burnley in the Premier League on a relatively shoestring budget. The Clarets boss even steered the Lancashire side into the Europa League during his tenure, and he’s well-regarded by his peers by deploying a fairly pragmatic approach out of necessity.

Perhaps Dyche would look to play more expansive football given the right tools, and he might be interested in the chance to further his career at Goodison Park. He was previously one of the longest-serving managers in the English top flight, and there’s a school of thought that he took Burnley as far as he could.

Dyche is among the betting favourites to take charge of Everton now that the betting market is live, and it’s worth monitoring the prices. Perhaps Everton need a pragmatic manager right now in order to guide them out of trouble and preserve their top-flight status.

Hasenhuttl the New Name in the Frame

According to Sky Sports, Ralph Hasenhuttl is now a serious contender to become the next manager of Everton Football Club. The Austrian recently parted company with Southampton after a successful time at St Mary's. He has been keeping the Saints afloat in the Premier League since 2018 and might now aim to do the same with a Toffees team who are only a couple of wins away from safety.

The latest betting odds suggest that Hasenhuttl certainly has a chance of replacing Frank Lampard and supporters would be pleased if they managed to land a manager with this sort of calibre. The 55-year-old was in charge of RB Leipzig between 2016-18 and he was one of the longest-serving managers in the Premier League before leaving Southampton at the back end of last year.

Hasenhuttl has a reputation for playing attractive football. However, like any potential new manager, he would need assurances regarding the direction in which the club are heading. On face value, this looks as though a serious rebuild is needed for any coach and the terms of any contract would have to be right for the manager.

Return For Big Sam On the Cards?

It's a crazy thought, although Sam Allardyce isn't a massive outsider to return to Everton FC in the coming weeks. The 68-year-old is now trading among the favourites to replace Frank Lampard, with the former England boss having been in charge of the Toffees between 2017-18. Allardyce replaced Ronald Koeman near the beginning of that season with the club situated in thirteenth place.

Although Allardyce guided the Toffees to a final finishing position of eighth, supporters were unhappy about the style of football being played at Goodison Park and the manager promptly left the club at the end of the campaign. However, perhaps Big Sam is what Everton need right now, if only on a short-term contract to preserve their top-flight status.

Beggars can't be choosers when you're a club in Everton's position and Allardyce has more recently held a managerial post at West Brom although he was unable to keep the Baggies afloat during 2020/21 season. It certainly wouldn't be a popular move among fans to hire him this time around.

David Moyes Might Be Sweet on Toffees Return

We're likely to see betting odds jumping around at new betting sites as speculation intensifies. It’s not the longest shot that David Moyes might return to Goodison Park, with the Scot having achieved great things during his first stint at the Merseyside club, and that included guiding them into the Champions League.

Moyes jumped at the chance to manage Manchester United, although that assignment quickly went pear-shaped, and there were further spells at Real Sociedad and Sunderland that also didn’t work particularly well. The manager has rebuilt his reputation at West Ham United although the Scot is under fire at the London Stadium despite a recent 2-0 win over Everton.

Perhaps his friendship with shareholder Bill Kenwright could swing things in favour of Everton, should Moyes be offered the chance to return home, and the opportunity to guide the Toffees out of trouble in the Premier League table could mean a shot at redemption.

Could Duncan Ferguson Be Given the Job?

On 4 July 2022, it was announced that Duncan Ferguson had left Everton to pursue his coaching ambitions. At the time of writing, the Scot remains a free agent waiting for the right opportunity. Perhaps that will be the manager's seat at Goodison Park, and there's little doubt the club legend would covet that role.

There is nobody more dyed in the wool than Ferguson when it comes to Everton. The Scot has a special bond with the supporters, and he's been part of numerous backroom management teams over the past few years. It's clear the 50-year-old is always ready and waiting to step up to the plate and take charge.

Ferguson enjoyed two spells as an Everton player, scoring 35 goals in 107 appearances between 1994-1998, and he then returned after a spell at Newcastle United. He has held the interim Toffees manager role on two different occasions. Perhaps he will be given the chance to manage permanently.

Thomas Frank a Surprise Name on the Betting Shortlist

It would seem like a strange move if Thomas Frank swapped Brentford for Everton given their respective positions in the Premier League table. However, many of the betting sites have the Dane as one of the favourites for the vacant position, with Frank having worked his magic at the Gtech Stadium to steer the Bees from the Championship into the top flight.

Brentford are stationed in mid-table in the Premier League, and Frank has created a team who have been causing a number of big scalps since they attained Premier League status. Ivan Toney is one of several players who have blossomed under Frank's coaching setup and perhaps Everton might make an approach for someone who could have a transformative effect.

Could Wayne Rooney Be Lured Back from DC United?

Wayne Rooney dipped his toe into the managerial waters by taking charge at Derby County, and despite managing to keep the Rams afloat two seasons ago, the former Everton striker found life tough at the Midlands club. Perhaps he will want to throw his hat into the ring for the Toffees role.

Rooney is something of an Everton legend despite making a move to Manchester United and having the most successful years of his playing career with the Red Devils. The local lad then returned to Goodison towards the end of his time as a player, and he would surely be open to forming part of the coaching staff.

Perhaps Everton would be initially reluctant to make Rooney their manager considering the former striker is inexperienced, although the way that he performed at Derby deserves praise. Despite a points deduction, the manager engineered a number of wins against some of the leading teams in the Championship last season. Rooney is now at DC United, although that could be a short tenure if Everton come calling.

Could Marcelino Be The Next Manager of Everton?

One name which is appeared out of the blue is Marcelino, with the 57-year-old being highly regarded in the game thanks mainly to his achievements in Spain. He was able to steer Valencia to a Copa del Rey success in 2019, while his time at Athletic Bilbao saw the team land the Supercopa de Espana in 2021 and the same team were twice runners-up in the Copa del Rey.

The obvious negative is Marcelino's lack of experience when it comes to managing outside of Spain, although that hasn't stopped Julen Lopetegui from making the recent move to Wolves. Perhaps the manager will relish the chance to take charge of a historically big club and there could be a hefty bonus on the table if he was able to steer the Toffees out of danger.

The latest betting odds suggest that Marcelino could well be interviewed regarding the role and he enjoyed a win rate of nearly 50% during his time at Villarreal between 2013-2016, with Everton clearly regarding him as a high-calibre candidate.

Nuno High Up in Everton Boss Thoughts

No sooner had the news broken that Carlo Ancelotti had agreed in principle to become the next manager of Real Madrid, had the bookies started to price up the next Everton manager betting market and Nuno Espirito Santo was installed as the initial favourite before eventually making the switch to Tottenham Hotspur. In the end, the Toffees opted for Rafa Benitez.

Up until the end of two seasons ago, Nuno Espirito Santo was in charge at Wolverhampton Wanderers although the Portuguese then only had a brief spell with Spurs before the board decided to act quickly, and he's now in charge of Saudi Arabian club Al-Ittihad.

Nuno not only guided Wanderers into the Premier League at the first time of asking, but also steered them to sixth spot in the top flight and then managed seventh the following season, working his magic with players such as Raul Jimenez, Joao Moutinho, Adama Traore and Conor Coady.

Perhaps Nuno would be attracted to the prospect of replacing Lampard and looking to make Everton top six contenders again.

Pereira Has Been Linked to Next Everton Manager Roles

Everton supporters were scrambling for information on Vitor Pereira after the Portuguese was one of the betting favourites to previously replace Rafael Benitez. He was in charge of Fenerbahçe in 2021, although he lasted just a few months after a series of underwhelming performances, before taking a role at Corinthians.

Pereira previously took charge of Chinese Super League club Shanghai SIPG and initially did well, winning the title during his first season. He was apparently approached by Everton during his time at the club, despite the fact that his time with 1860 Munich in the Bundesliga ended in tears.

It would certainly be a big gamble to appoint someone like Pereira, although the 54-year-old has previously been prominent in the betting market. He could well be the preferred choice of owner Farhad Moshiri, now that the manager has just left Brazilian club Corinthians.
