It certainly looks like an early battle between the two but the difference of opinion is huge.
But you have to back 7-2 Hiddink with Hills who make another former Chelsea gaffer Jose Mourinho the same price.
Graham Sharpe, spokesman for Hills, said: “The Chelsea management markets are a regular source of income for us.
“A little bit like the first cuckoo of spring we look forward to the first indications a new manager is on the cards when punter start to look for odds.”
David Williams of Ladbrokes said: “Hiddink left Chelsea on great terms and we reckon a return to the Bridge could well be on the cards. Experience has taught us this particular managerial market is even more volatile than usual.
“There's very little prospect of an early payout as Roman Abramovich has an uncanny knack of springing surprises.”
Ladbrokes prices: 11-10 Hiddink, 6-1 Villas-Boa, Mourinho, 8-1 Marco van Basten, 10-1 David Moyes.
Hills prices: 11-10 Villas-Boa, 7-2 Hiddink, Mourinho, 4-1 Harry Redknapp, 7-1 Pep Guardiola, 10-1 Van Basten.
