Redknapp 5/4 To Leave Before Next QPR Match
Harry Redknapp is a 5/4 shot with William Hill to have left QPR before their next match – against Stoke at the end of the month.
His side are 4/6 joint second favourites for relegation with Leicester and just behind Burnley (4/7) at the head of the betting.
“There seemed to be plenty of speculation that a defeat against Manchester United would have resulted in Harry Redknapp’s departure, however, we think that he will just about stay in his role for the Stoke match,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
At the top of the table, Chelsea are 2/5 after their convincing win over Swansea put them five points clear of Manchester City. Manuel Pelligrini’s side are 5/2 for the title.
Premier League winner: 2/5 Chelsea; 5/2 Manchester City; 33/1 Manchester United; 80/1 Arsenal; 150/1 Southampton; 400/1 Liverpool; 400/1 Tottenham
Premier League relegation: 4/7 Burnley; 4/6 Leicester; 4/6 QPR; 7/4 Hull; 5/2 Aston Villa; 11/4 Crystal Palace; 11/4 Sunderland; 4/1 West Brom; 25/1 Everton; 33/1 Newcastle; 100/1 Stoke
Will Harry Redknapp have left QPR before their next game (Stoke, Jan 31st): 5/4 yes; 4/7 no
