Following the 3-1 loss, Sky Bet certainly feel the Italian will be the first manager to find his services no longer required. The Leeds-based firm are just 9/4 with BetVictor offering 4/1.
The compilers at Ladbrokes and William Hill appear to think that Alan Pardew isn't out of the woods despite Newcastle rescuing three points from their match against Fulham thanks to a lte goal from Hatem Ben Arfa.
Ladbrokes, in particular, have taken that view with their quote of 11/4 about the Magpies being first to part company with their manager, though BetVictor are a more conservative 5/1.
Meanwhile, William Hill go even money that Di Canio is no longer at the Stadium of Light at the last game of this season and 8/11 that he is.
888sport currently offer 11/4 about the prospects of relegation for the Black Cats though Paddy Power are just 2/1.
William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly said: "Di Canio must surely be feeling the pressure after flopping in a must win game, especially considering the money that he has spent in the summer."
Palace are still firm favourites for the drop and Ladbrokes are a best-priced 1/2 about the eventuality.
Hull can be supported at 5/6 with Coral while Cardiff are a general 2/1 despite humbling Manchester City last weekend and taking a point against Everton on Saturday.
