O'Neill To Get Sack On Wednesday - Odds Are 3/1

Mackem boss Martin O'Neill is 3/1 to get the sack this week - as he stands one defeat away from picking up his P45.
The Mackem Leprechaun is counting on his past experience to haul the Mackems out of trouble ... but if Reading win at the Stadium Of Shite on Tuesday ... he is gone!
The Black Cats currently sit third from bottom in the Premier League, having won only two of their last 23 league games.
Reading are 3/1 to win - and that's the betting on his future.
Martin O'Neill: "I've been in management 20 years. I've had tougher times at other clubs and we've come through them.
"When I went to Leicester City, the first 10 or 11 games I couldn't win a match to save my life. We turned that round and were pretty successful.
"The first year at Aston Villa was exceptionally tough indeed. We'll pull round and, inevitably I hope, we'll get a team that the supporters are really proud of.
"The team is essentially the same as last season so it's a tough struggle, but we'll get there.
"There's lots of elements attached to this. The unity is very important of course but the players this time last year were in a similar position so we've got a bit of experience of that.
"We'd obviously hope that experience plus the spirit that exists in the squad would give us a headstart."
