When a new manager comes in, they'll want to stamp their authority and make changes quickly. That means certain players will benefit from a tactical reboot, while others may fall out of favor. It also means we'll see shifts in team styles and strategies. Some lowly sides might embrace a new attacking verve and shoot up the table, while loftier clubs adjust to life without their dependable defender-turned-manager. 

These disruptions cause short-term volatility that astute bettors can profit from. Fixtures immediate after a change tend to see goals galore as teams find their feet. Meanwhile, longer-term markets like top goalscorer and relegation likelihoods get scrambled. Players who were off the pace before can hit hot streaks under reinvigorated new systems.

At the same time, solid contenders may briefly slip up as squads adapt to altered blueprints. This creates value opportunities to back former also-rans for tangible short-term results. It also means the odds on title and European qualification races can be exploited.

To maximize gains, bettors need to monitor the merry-go-round and pounce when dismissals occur. Cross-reference form, fixtures and the managerial profiles to identify vulnerable and revitalized teams. With some strategic wagering informed by coaching changes, punters stand to profit handsomely from the chaos of soccer's seasonal shake-ups.
