Next James Bond Betting Market wide open still at Ladbrokes

Novelty Betting & Other Events Betting
Idris Elba, who at one point looked as if he was the hot-favourite to be the next James Bond, drifted in the betting market last year. But now the Luther actor is back in the mix of things and sits as 5/2 joint favourite with Tom Hardy and Michael Fassbender to be the next 007. Elba recently teased fans by dropping an alleged hint during a comedy video which set punters in action to back him again. Daniel Craig is still James Bond at the moment, the second-longest serving actor in the role, having starred in four movies, but the market to follow in his footsteps as the star of the franchise is as wide open as you can get. There really hasn’t been any clear indicators which was this is going to go and one-time favourite Aidan Turner has drifted back to 4/1 alongside James Norton. Tom Hiddleston said recently that no-one has talked to him about taking on the role while Michael Fassbender said that he is surprised that his name is still in the market, going as far as saying that he wasn’t really interested in the role anyway. Which could lead things back to Tom Hardy as being some value here as the Mad Max star has never drifted far from the head of the Ladbrokes Next James Bond betting market. Ladbrokes Latest Betting: Next James Bond Idris Elba – 5/2 Michael Fassbender – 5/2 Tom Hardy – 5/2 Aidan Turner – 4/1 James Norton –  4/1 Tom Hiddleston – 8/1 Jack Huston – 8/1 Henry Cavill – 16/1 Any Female – 16/1 Theo James – 16/1 Ryan Gosling – 16/1 20/1 bar Register an account with online betting site Ladbrokes and earn a free £50 bet as welcome bonus from them.

Floyd Mayweather v Conor McGregor Boxing Match betting hype grows

Sports Betting
Apparently we are going to be looking forward to a huge showdown later in the year between UFC lightweight title holder Conor McGregor and boxing legend Floyd Mayweather. There have been talks and rumours about this one for some time and increasingly the bookmakers have been trimming odds on the event actually happening. Now there are reports that the two parties have agreed a multi-million dollar contract to square off against each other. If this is all true and it goes ahead, then the blockbuster match would be an epic spectacle for fans. While the bout hasn’t been officially set up or anything yet, the discourse is, is that it is closer than ever to actually happening. So apparently the fees have been agreed between the two fighters but there is a third party hold up, which hasn’t come fully to light. UFC star Conor “Notorious” McGregor has long talked about taking on Mayweather in a boxing bout and while he doesn’t have the consent of the UFC for such a fight, he has pointed out the Ali Act that would allow him to have the fight without such consent. Of course, the fallout from that, of him going against the UFC could be a massive blow for his career. McGregor does have a boxing license in California and Mayweather has sounded both optimistic and excited about taking “notorious” in the ring. Mayweather stepped back from the sport back in September 2015 after unanimous win decision over Andre Berto after having beaten Manny Pacquiao in the same year. He then decided to retire undefeated from his illustrious career, but now “Money” wants a shot at something different. Bookmaker Ladbrokes has Mayweather as 1/16 odds on favourite for the bout, with McGregor a hefty 7/1 shot the other way. Mayweather has beaten all comers of all abilities and sizes in his career and no-one was able to stop the American. It would be perhaps the most spectacular win of McGregor’s career if he was to come out on top in a Boxing match against the hall-of-famer.

Kris Marshall slashed to be next Doctor Who

Ladbrokes
Who will land the coveted role as the 13th Doctor Who? The race is on to succeed Peter Capaldi in the famous role. Ladbrokes reported this week that there was a flurry of action coming on Kris Marshall taking over the role and that was all sparked by the actor announcing that he is retiring from his popular role in Death In Paradise. The former My Family star took such a rapid backing that he was cut from 25/1 into 3/1 favourite in the Next Doctor Who betting market. Despite the action that has come in for him, and his comic role in the sitcom should see him offer that quirky humour to the role of the Doctor, in terms of the number of actual bets received, no-one has received more than Olivia Colman to break some new ground and be the first female in the lead role. There has apparently been clues to Colman taking over the role. The Broadchurch actress who won a Golden Globe for her role in the Dorset-based crime show has taken a third of all bets in the Next Doctor Who betting market. Also, Broadchurch was written by Chris Chibnall, who is the new full time writer for the next Doctor Who series. The BBC have also dropped a teaser featuring Time Lady Missy. Filing for the new season of Doctor Who begins in the summer, so we will probably find out soon who gets the starring role. Other contenders include Maxine Peake if the producers are going to go with a female lead and skip Colman, while James Bond star Ben Whishaw and IT Crowd star Richard Ayoade are in the mix at longer prices.

Next Doctor Who Betting Odds

Kris MArshall 3/1, Olivia Colman 5/1, Maxine Peake 7/1, Reece Shearsmith 10/1, Ben Whishaw 10/1, Richard AYoade 10/1, Andrew Buchan 10/1, Richard Madden 10/1, Tilda Swinton 10/1, Rory Kinnear 12/1, Phoebe Waller-Bridge 12/1, Andrew Scott 12/1, 14/1 bar Register an account with online betting site Ladbrokes and earn a free £50 bet as welcome bonus from them.

Snooker World Grand Prix Betting 2017 Winner Odds & Prediction

Snooker Betting
It is off to Preston this week for the Snooker World Grand Prix and after his recent Masters triumph, it is Ronnie O'Sullivan who is rocketing ahead of the rest of the field to lead the betting at a price of 4/1 with bookmaker Ladbrokes. The action will go through to February 12th and the winner will be walking away with £100,000 in his pocket. This is a 32-man competition for the top 32 players on the one-year ranking list who get a precious spot in the tournament. The defending champion up is Shaun Murphy who edged out Stuart Bingham in last year’s epic final, claiming the title in a deciding frame. O’Sullivan was beaten by Michael Holt in the first round of last season’s action and with the Rocket surprisingly going out of the German Masters in the first round against Mark King last week, it may just send punters in the direction of opposing the favourite, which would make some sense for value here. Basically you never know how interesting O’Sullivan is going to be in a tournament. The interesting thing about this tournament at the Preston Guild Hall, is that there have only been the two previous editions and it only became a ranking tournament for the first time last year. The previous 2015 final saw Judd Trump taking out O’Sullivan in a thrilling final at Llandudno, Wales. So in this busy period of top action on the snooker circuit, who is the one who is most likely going to really oppose O’Sullivan in the betting market? Will it be 17/2 shot Judd Trump who becomes the first man to ever win the tournament twice or will it be the always-threatening Mark Selby who is the closest man to O’Sullivan in the Snooker World Grand Prix Betting 2017 Winner Odds?

Snooker World Grand Prix Betting 2017 Winner Odds

Ronnie O’Sullivan 4/1, Mark Selby 9/2, Judd Trump 17/2, John Higgins 11/1, Ding Junhui 12/1, Neil Robertson 12/1, Marco Fu 18/1, Shaun Murphy 18/1, Barry Hawkins 20/1, 25/1 bar

Snooker World Grand Prix Betting 2017 Winner Prediction

So how do we break all of this one down? O’Sullivan was immense at the Masters, no-one looked close to touching and it was a fantastic sight seeing him control the baize so well and looking focused-in on his game. The Essex-born legend heads up to Lancashire though as a puzzle for punters. When he is on his game there is still no-one in the world who can get close to standing up to him, but then again, as he showed in his slump in the first round at the German Masters, he is liable to come unstuck. So that is probably the indicator which will send punters away from him and Mark Selby makes the most sense of all the chasing pack to be the one to lift the trophy. He is going into the tournament with more ranking points (actually more than double the amount of any other player) this season than any other competitor. He has won three ranking tournaments this season, so he has been carrying the form and should find himself in the quarter finals easily. Interestingly though, Selby, O'Sullivan and Judd Trump, along with Neil Robertson, are all lumped together inside the top half of the draw. So that makes things hit and miss completely. If you look at the other half of the Snooker World Grand Prix 2017 draw then you will see that Ding Junhui and Marco Fu both have good runs through to what would be a semi final clash between them. Taking our snooker betting fancy this week is Fu who has claimed the Scottish Open title this season and he went to the semifinals at the Masters recently. He is a big enough price to split each way in opposition to either O’Sullivan or Selby from the top half. The cluster of talent in the top half of the table is going to make for an exhausting run for one of those. Our tip would be just to run with the form, the consistent form that is, of Selby to edge his way through the mix from there.

Ladbrokes rate Trump even money to be impeached in first term

Ladbrokes
Well the change is about to happen in the USA. Barack Obama ends his historic reign in the White House and in will be coming the politically-inexperienced Donald Trump. In a major underdog story, the real estate mogul beat out out Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton in last year’s election and he will take his place in the Oval Office on January 20th when the handing over of power happens. Obama made his farewell speech this week and now the next major date is when Trump gets inaugurated. However, because of the highly volatile nature of the President Elect, even through his election campaigning and now topped off with rumours that the Russians have some embarrassing information stockpiled on him, punters have piled into the odds that Trump fails to see out his four-year term. You can now take a price of even money at Ladbrokes that Trump resigns or is impeached before the end of his first term in office. Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “Fake news or real news, it hasn’t deterred punters from putting their money on the line that Trump is impeached before the end of his first term.” Trump’s Inauguration is sure to capture the eyes of the world next week, and we’re on the pulse too with our latest Buzzword Bingo. Make America Great Again leads the way at 1/50, with outsiders including Meryl Streep at 25s and Piers Morgan at 100/1.

Back the FA Cup underdog with Ladbrokes promotion

Ladbrokes
The third round of action in the FA Cup on the weekend. While the action kicks off on Friday night with a clash between Premier League sides West Ham and Manchester City in London, there will be a lot of sides from outside of the Premier League looking to claim a big FA Cup scalp over the weekend. The bulk of the action is one Saturday and there is a big game at Old Trafford when Reading go there to try and take down the Red Devils. The Royals are obviously big underdogs for that one, but sides like Norwich at home against Southampton and Millwall at home against Bournemouth may fancy their chances of pulling off an upset. On Sunday Plymouth and Peterborough both have massive giant killing acts potentially in their grasp as they go to Liverpool and Chelsea respectively, while Aston Villa will be hoping to carry forward some good form as they make a tough trip to White Hart Lane to take on Tottenham.

Ladbrokes pays out on Boxing Day big wins

Ladbrokes
Boxing Day wasn’t kind to bookmakers as a stack of favourable results, particularly in the Premier League, gave punters some extra Christmas cheer. Each of the seven most popular selections in the Premier League all won on Boxing Day, including Chelsea, Man City, Man Utd and Arsenal. Ladbrokes suffered as Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Aston Villa, Sheffield United, Bolton, Rochdale and Manchester City all won, those being the eight most heavily backed teams on the Boxing Day coupon with the bookmaker. Among the lucky punters who came up trumps there was one punter who turned a £1 stake into nearly a couple of grand. £1 Stake on Arsenal Chelsea Man Utd Man City Aston Villa Huddersfield Reading Fulham Leeds Wolves Returned £1,947.16 There was a bigger win off a £10 10-fold acca which returned £5,389.56 at the final whistle, with the being grateful for wins for Arsenal, Burnley, Chelsea, Everton, Man United, West Ham, Aston Villa, Wolves, Bolton and Millwall. Another punter turned a £9 9-fold into a return of £4,730.33. So there were some hefty wins for punters and there was a dramatic cash out pulled by a punter as well on a 14-old acca. With 13 of the 14 selections winning, the punter cashed out the bet for £11,470.08 instead of trusting Plymouth to hold a lead against Wycombe in the final leg. It turns out that it was the right call, as Wycombe netted a late equaliser in the match, which would have caused the bet to tank. £2 stake - 14-fold - Cashed out for £11,470.08 - 13 selections won - Plymouth remain - Concede in 89th minute to draw 3-3 Register an account with online betting site Ladbrokes and earn a free £50 bet as welcome bonus from them.

Ladbrokes refunds all White Christmas bets

Ladbrokes
Once again there was no White Christmas for the UK as the white stuff was nowhere in sight across the nation. There wasn’t a dusting of it anywhere and bookmaker Ladbrokes decided to go ahead and refund all wagers placed on a White Christmas. They went a step further as well paying out to punters who had backed December 25th to be the warmest Christmas Day ever this year, which pretty much left everyone coming up roses with the bookie. Temperatures went up to 15c this year on Christmas Day and that actually was matching the temperatures with climates in Madrid and Athens. Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “White Christmas punters were never given a proper run for their money this year. “We’re feeling festive and a little merry from all the sherry, and have decided to refund all wagers as well as paying out on it being the warmest ever December 25th.” Register an account with online betting site Ladbrokes and earn a free £50 bet as welcome bonus from them.
