Odds to replace Jeff Stelling and there's an overwhelming favourite

The odds for Jeff Stelling's replacement at Sky Sports have been revealed and there's an overwhelming favourite.

Stelling announced he will leave Sky Sports' flagship Soccer Saturday during last weekend's show in an emotional farewell.

Speaking ahead of the 3pm kick-offs, he said: "I’ve been at Sky for more than 30 years and loved every moment of my time as part of the Soccer Saturday team.

"It is now the right time to move on and give Sky Sports viewers a break from my relentless rants, bad gags and over the top celebrations of Hartlepool United goals.


"It’s been a lot of fun - for me at least!"


The show on Sunday, May 28 - the last day of the Premier League season - will be the 68-year-old's final outing on Sky Sports.

Ahead of finding his replacement, odds for Stelling's successor have been revealed, with Laura Woods the current favourite.


Woods has done presenting work for the likes of Sky Sports, ITV and DAZN whilst expressing her love for Arsenal on talkSPORT.

She's priced at 2/1 to replace Stelling ahead of Mark Chapman, who leads the Match of the Day 2 coverage on BBC.

Julian Warren, who fills in for Stelling during midweek shows, is priced at 4/1, ahead of Micah Richards as well as Sky Sports duo David Jones and Kelly Cates.

BBC's Dan Walker, BT Sport's Jake Humphrey, Alex Scott and Match of the Day host Gary Lineker have also been given odds to replace Stelling.


Not to mention Chris Kamara as well as big outsiders Alan Brazil and Matt Le Tissier, who used to feature on Soccer Saturday.

Odds to replace Jeff Stellng via Sporting Post:

Laura Woods - 2/1

Mark Chapman 3/1


Julian Warren - 4/1

Micah Richards - 8/1

David Jones - 8/1

Kelly Cates - 10/1
