Jol sack odds slashed

Received this press release this morning:
Paul Lambert is 6/4 favourite (from 4/7) at BetVictor to be the next PL manager to lose/leave his post after a steady trickle of bets for Martin Jol who has been cut from 20s to 3/1 this morning.

Spokesperson Charlie McCann: “The gamble has taken us by surprise to be honest and we don’t really understand why Jol has suddenly become of interest to punters; Paul Lambert, as a result, is out to 6/4 from 4/7 despite Villa’s poor run of form in recent weeks.”

Next Premier League manager to lose/leave his post:
P lambert                     6/4 (from 4/7)
M Jol                           3/1 (from 20/1)
N Adkins                    6/1
16s Bar

While I thought the draw against Wigan could suck Fulham into the relegation battle, I was surprised to see how many teams were still below them. In such illiquid markets, movements such as this might not indicate much money being put on Jol, but 20/1 was a quite attractive price considering the situation.

Doesn't Mo usually sack managers when they are closer to the relegation zone?
