Who Will be the NEXT NBA Coach Fired?

Who Will be the NEXT NBA Coach Fired?

I feel like I was writing a “Which coach will be fired first” article just about a week ago…oh, that’s right. I did.

Bettors didn’t have to sweat that one out long, as the Suns fired Earl Watson just a few days into the season. However, he was not listed in the original prop bet, meaning the “Field” would have been paid out at +400.

Bovada is right back on the horse and has posted odds on which coach will be fired next.

Alvin Gentry of the Pelicans, who was initially second on the preseason list, takes over the top spot. New Orleans is off to a 1-3 start and may be without Anthony Davis for a little while, as he’s dealing with a banged up knee…shocking!

Fred Hoiberg, the original favorite, has bought himself some time thanks to the Bulls’ “good” start. They are 0-3, but 2-1 against the spread including a hard-fought game against the Cavs.

Jeff Hornacek, who was not listed last week, is now right behind Gentry. The Knicks are off to a terrible start, going 0-3 both straight up and against the spread.

Oddly enough, the third name on the list is Doc Rivers.

The Clippers are 3-0 both straight up and on the spread, so what gives? I don’t know! I certainly won’t be betting on him, though.
