BEN SHEPHERD is the 2-1 favourite with Ladbrokes to replace Richard Keys as the main anchor for Sky Sports football broadcasts.
The market looks wide open as several other pundits both currently on Sky and rival channels vie for the lucrative contract after Keys quit yesterday over the sexism rows.
Popular Soccer Saturday host Jeff Stelling is a 7-1 chance with Ray Stubbs in at 16-1.
Adrian Chiles is 20-1 which is the same price about BBC favourite Gary Lineker. Gabby Logan is the shortest price female candidate at 10-1.
Ladbrokes have also paid out to punters who successfully backed Keys at 4-5 to leave before midnight on Sunday.
