Alan Curbishley Strong Favourite for Robins Job

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 18, 2010) - Online football betting company Victor Chandler report a deluge of bets on Alan Curbishley to be the next Bristol City manager after the firm opened up with prices this morning. The firm were originally 12/1 about Curbishley getting the job, and it didn't take long for that price to be snapped up.

"It's been a fair old gamble throughout the day, and we have had to cut his price several times," said VC spokesman Neal Wilkins. "We were 12/1, then 8/1, then 6/1 and we are now 4/1, but the way it's going he could well be shorter in the near future. He's a big loser in our book."

The firm have also taken decent money on Sean O'Driscoll, but they do expect that there will be a few swings and roundabouts to come. "With the new stadium on the horizon, Bristol City is an attractive proposition to many managers, and we expect a few more names to be backed before a decision is made." added Wilkins.
