The 65-year-old has been appointed as Tony Pulis' permanent replacement in South London but is 4/9 not to see out his new two-year deal
Neil Warnock finally ended the speculation by accepting Palace's offer and bet365 make his new side 5/4 (2.25) shots to be playing Championship football next season. Warnock had previously been in charge of the club between 2007 and 2010 but he is 4/9 (1.44) not to see out his new two-year deal.
Burnley are just 4/9 (1.44) to only last a solitary season in the top flight with QPR next in the betting after opening their campaign with back-to-back defeats. Harry Redknapp's side are available at 11/8 (2.38) to be relegated closely followed by Palace at 5/4 (2.25).
West Brom (5/2) were a popular pre-season bet for relegation and remain steady in the betting after draws in their opening two matches.
The third newly-promoted side, Leicester City, are 11/4 (3.75) chances to be back in the Championship next term, followed by Aston Villa at 9/2 (5.50).
The bookmakers have seen plenty of change in the next Palace manager market ever since Pulis' departure.
Bet365’s Steve Freeth commented “When a manager gets backed into 1/6 (1.17) on the final day in a reported two-horse race, you’d normally think that they’ve got the gig, but that wasn’t the case with Steve Clarke.
“Since Tony Pulis’ departure, we’ve also seen Tim Sherwood trade at 1/10 (1.10), Malky Mackay backed at 1/4 (1.25) and Neil Lennon punted into 6/4 (2.50) at one stage and despite the inevitable late surge for Warnock around 4/1 (5.00), it was a bookmaker-friendly result.”
The Eagles are 7/2 (4.50) to finish bottom of the division and 9/1 (10.0) to finish in the top half.
