At 7.02pm on Monday evening, Sky Sports News sent the following tweet:
There is no suggestion that those sources were unreliable and unfounded, but we can assume that the news provoked a number of bets to be placed on Allardyce to be named Everton’s next manager. His price on SkyBet moved from 8/13 to 1/6 by the end of the day.
By Tuesday afternoon, Allardyce confirmed that there had been no contact with Everton over taking over the manager’s position. Either he was telling porkies, or Sky’s sources had got it wrong.
Still, at least all those bets got place.
