Warrington Guardian are reporting that substanial amounts of money have been placed on Geoff Toovey and Michael Maguire at a local bookmakers to become next Warrington coach.They carnt split them and make them both 3/1 joint favourites.The bookies rarely get it wrong.

If they really thought it was going to be one of those 2 the odds would be a lot shorter than 3s.

Indeed the bookies rarely get it wrong, you just need to know what "it" is. This would of course mean by offering these odds, the bookies would be guaranteeing themselves a loss, if either got the gig. Joint favs at a generous 3/1 suggests more of a healthy spread of other candidates and the bookies taking a decent percentage on others as well as these two.

The bookies odds mean if you read this as a signal from the bookies that it's gonna be one of these two, then clearly you should lump on, onto both, and make a 50% profit whichever of them gets it. Bookies guaranteeing themselves a loss? Not likely. As you rightly say, they aren't noted for getting it wrong!

I would go for Maguire. He has won both SL and NRL as far as I believe.
He knows the game here.
Toovey has hardly any experience of the game over here.
The Wigan chairman does tend to get it right and he did with Maguire so I won't be surprised if the Wire chairman brings Maguire in.
I am not fully sold on Toovey. All I hear is his fierce will to win but what are his coaching skills like?

From what I hear he's very good.
