Premier League betting - Interesting odds

Mourinho to Man U, Rafa out and Berbatov to stay!
Footy Focus has been perusing the latest Premier League betting odds on various football topics and there's some interesting ones out there:
Next permanent Manchester United Manager: Jose Mourinho is only 10/1 to succeed Sir Alex.Ladbrokes Favourites are Carlos Quieroz and surprisingly Mark Hughes at 32/5 and 39/5 respectively (Betfair).
For all the talk on Berbatov the bookies don't have him leaving White Hart Lane just yet, with his odds at staying during January being 1/4 with Ladbrokes, 11/4 to go.
Perhaps in a sign that only God knows what's going on at Anfield, there is no book yet on who will succeed Rafael Benitez as Liverpool manager, but there is a book on him being, or not being Liverpool manager on the 1st of August 2008. Just to emphasise that no one has a clue the odds are exactly even at 5/6 either way with SkyBet. However Rafa the Gaffer is the hot tip to be the next manager to bite the bullet, ahead of Gareth Southgate and Roy Keane. Harry Redknapp may well be topping that list shortly.
Betfair LogoThe race for the Premier League throws up no surprises with all the bookies calling the top four as Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool in that order.
Lastly and patriotically we looked at the top English goalscorer betting. Wayne Rooney is 5/2, but Steven Gerrard may be worth a punt at 34/5 (Betfair)
