You’re Out: MLB Manager Firing Prop Bets And Timeline

  • Online sportsbooks are offering a unique prop bet on the odds for all MLB managers to be fired.
  • Seattle Mariners manager Scott Servais leads all coaches with the shortest odds to get fired at +800.
  • Terry Francona currently has the longest odds to get fired at +5000.

LAS VEGAS – Job security is something that is important to everyone, especially if you are an MLB manager. The leash is short for coaches in the modern sports landscape.

Any coach who isn’t able to win by their third, or even second season, is looked at with scrutiny that only increases.

In the MLB, this is no different. Even with the players risking their health by playing in a pandemic, there still is always the threat of a manager getting canned.

Certain online sportsbooks have taken advantage of these intense working conditions by offering a prop bet on which MLB manager is most likely to be fired.

While no bettor wants to root for someone to lose their job, this prop is worth a closer look.

Out of all the bets, this is definitely not the one that MLB managers want to see their name on the top of.

Scott Servais of the Seattle Mariners is the one in that position. In his five years with the Mariners, he has recorded two winning seasons, with the highest win total sitting at 89, and zero playoff appearances.

Local opinion has soured on Servais for over a year, and if the Mariners can’t improve during this season, it might be curtains for Servais.

With the same odds as Servais is Baltimore Orioles skipper Brandon Hyde. Hyde is only in his second season with the Orioles but drove them to a paltry 54-108 record in 2019.

While Hyde does not have much to work with in terms of talent or stability, he could also be looking for a new job if he can’t show improvements over the 60-game season.

Other props are available for if a manager will be fired at all this year, as well as how soon the first one will get the axe.

Any Managers to be Fired This Year?

  • Yes -1500
  • No +600

It is rare that a year passes without a coaching change in the big leagues, but maybe teams are feeling sympathetic towards the men who led their teams through the pandemic.

How Many Games Before A Manager Gets Fired?

  • Over 18.5 Games -180
  • Under 18.5 Games +140

On the other side of that thought, teams might have a shorter leash than ever due to the 60-game season. Teams who are in their championship window might be quick to make a change in order to rectify the ship.

Regardless of which manager baseball bettors choose to root to fail, there will be some major front office moves throughout this unique season.
