Novelty Betting & Other Events Betting

We can’t resist a dip back into the Next James Bond betting market. Ladbrokes reported over the last week a big price chop on Cillian Murphy to be the next 007. In the last seven days the actor has come down to 10/1 from 20/1 to be the next James Bond.

Murphy has been in the long-standing leadership role in the BBC show Peaky Blinders and has had big hit movies such as Dunkirk and The Dark Knight Trilogy.

The bookie reported that it is the highest amount of bets on a single actor in the market since Daniel Craig announced that he was no longer going to be reprised.

Tom Hiddleston is still the outright favourite though at 5/2 odds * (betting odds taken from bet365 on February 15th, 2019 at 8:30 pm)
