Online bookmakers Sky Bet have slashed the odds on Tim Sherwood becoming the next manager of Crystal Palace.
Sherwood has been out of work since leaving his first managerial job at Tottenham at the end of last season, and is now 1/8 to take over at Selhurst Park.
Former Cardiff boss Malky Mackay had been the favourite up until Sunday evening but is now 8/1, as a surge of bets on Sherwood saw him cut from 5/2 to clear favourite.
Sky Bet’s Dale Tempest said: “There’d already been a fair few bets on Sherwood over the weekend but things really exploded into life late on Sunday night.
“We continually cut the odds through the night but the punters were relentless, backing it all the way in to 1/8 before we managed to stem the flow on Monday morning.”
