Brian McDermott is considered the bookmaker's favourite to be the next Leeds manager following Neil Warnock's departure.
With Warnock's exit expected this summer, the Sky Bet already had a market available on his successor, with the former Reading boss heading the market at 11/4.
Confirmation of the 64-year-old's departure, which came after a 2-1 defeat to Derby all but ended their promotion hopes, was followed by support for McDermott, prompting his price to come in to 8/13.
Neil Redfearn has been placed in charge on a caretaker basis but is deemed unlikely to get the position on a full-time basis at 40/1.
Sky Bet Football Trader Chris Spicer said: "McDermott had already been touted as the ideal replacement, having led Reading to promotion last season.
