Southampton manager Pochettino faces strong competition from Ajax boss Frank de Boer, who was once favourite for the role, with the Dutchman following in the betting at 2/1.
Other names in the hat include Rafael Benitez at 5/1, while former Manchester United boss David Moyes is available to back at 9/1.
Sky Bet's Head of Football Trading Paul Wiggins said: "It was almost inevitable that Sherwood would leave, so much so that we already had a market open on the potential vacancy.
"De Boer was the initial favourite but Pochettino has been gaining support over the past few days as it looks likely that he'll lose his key players at Southampton.
"We don't foresee Sherwood being out of work for long, with the 45-year-old currently odds-on to be the next Brighton manager and 5/1 to replace Pepe Mel at West Brom."
