The Italian boss has been relieved of his duties after a 1-0 loss in Austria all but ended Ireland's chances of qualifying for the World Cup next summer.
O'Neill was installed as the 5/6 favourite for the job on Wednesday morning with the news widely anticipated and those odds have been backed into 8/15.
Sky Bet Football Trader Chris Spicer said: "O'Neill seems the obvious choice given his experience and availability and our punters tend to agree, with all the early money coming for him despite the short odds."
