Bob Bradley, the manager of Swansea City, is the manager considered most likely to be sacked according to betting odds. BetVictor have the event priced at 2/5 while Betfair is less optimistic in him hanging around, the firm pricing Bradley's sacking at 1/4. The updated odds follow December 26th's action which saw Swansea City lose another in what has been a bad patch of football of late.

Swansea fell to West Ham United

Swansea continued their trend of losing by big spreads as they've not played a team to within one goal since beating Sunderland a few matches ago.

In their last trio of Premiere League matches, Bradley's club has been outscored 10-2, with Monday's loss to West Ham United a 4-1 decision. West Ham themselves were flirting with relegation position a few weeks ago, however where Swansea have dropped three straight, West Ham have won three straight. Currently the Swans are in last place save one and they are four points out of 17th position, the cut off for relegation, following Crystal Palace earning a draw on Monday.

The next-manager-to-be-sacked markets can be tumultuous. Back in November, David Moyes was the favorite to be sacked next, however Sunderland have won some matches since then. Moyes is now a lengthy 18 to 1 to be sacked next despite his side losing to Manchester United 3-1.

Swansea have weak competition coming up

In truth Swansea's Premier League and FA Cup schedule does suggest that they might get some points in the standings soon. They host AFC Bournemouth next, just the 13th-placed team that has dropped two straight. After that Swansea have 17th-placed Crystal Palace and last-placed Hull City.

The match against Hull is not Premier League action, however it is a chance for Bradley to tally a win still. The strength of schedule at this time of the season certainly is favourable for Swansea. Anything positive and Bob Bradley might stave off a firing, however there's certainly a double side to that. If Swansea don't turn in some positive results soon, then dropping matches to weak clubs could be a stronger argument to let Bradley go.
