Interesting Bond betting article

Post by carl stromberg »

This is an interesting article on the next James Bond betting.

https://www2.politicalbetting.com/index ... cting-you/

The author says that there is endless speculation on the next Bond making actors who have no chance of being cast as the favourites. The authors plan is to bet against certain actors becoming Bond and making money off it. For example if you bet £10 on Idris Elba NOT becoming Bond, £3000 can be won! Of course betting against something means that if Idris is cast as Bond you will have to pay the £3000.
Bring back Bond!

Do you? I thought you just lost the £10. Anyway, Idris is 49 and has said he doesn't want to do it, so it seems a fairly safe bet.

I think the lay betting means you have to have the liability at the site.

There is a Doctor Who market too.
