Man City's dream of a domestic is over for another season after their penalty shoot-out defeat to West Ham in the EFL Cup. That's opened up the betting with Chelsea now favourites to lift the trophy at 11/4 and Liverpool close behind at 16/5.
League One side Sunderland are the only team from outside the Premier League left in the competition so no surprise to see them as 66/1 ousiders ahead of Saturday's qurter-final draw.
In Scotland, Rangers drifted out to 5/6 with Betway to win the Premiership as a result of their 2-2 draw at home to Aberdeen which coincided with a fifth consecutive win for rivals Celtic who closed the gap to two points at the top of the table.
Ange Postecoglou's men are now as short as even money with the same firm to wrestle back the title but can still be backed at 13/8 with Spreadex. The Hoops could go top of the table for the first time since the opening day of last season with a win over Livingston on Saturday and with a more favourable run of fixtures than the Gers on the horizon that price looks like it could shorten.
Big news from La Liga was the much anticipated departure of Ronald Koeman following yet another defeat for Barcelona, this time at the hands of Rayo Vallecano. Midfield legend Xavi is favourite to take over the hotseat and if you follow the betting he's the only man in the running, priced at 1/5.
Belgian boss Roberto Martinez is next in the betting at 10/1, then Antonio Conte at 16s. It's 33/1 bar for anyone else to pick up what looks like a poisoned chalice at the moment.
Spain is one of the destinations for Jamie Kennedy's Acca on Thursday which is a four-fold goals bet from across Europe while Greg is off to Italy and Norway for his bet of the day on a pretty quiet one for football fans.
