Based on the odds, the 2020 Chess World Championship betting predictions indicate that the young Norwegian is the absolute shoo-in. However, in mind-games you never know when your opponent will surmount you. I mean, these guys became Chess Grand Masters at age 14. Later on, in their twenties, they have beaten the most experienced sportsmen. They are developing much faster than the other older competitors. Despite their longer odds at Bwin, the Chinese Liren with 7.00 and the Italian-American Fabiano with 11.00 also can be threats to Magnus. At the official site of FIDE, all of these young talents have ratings above 2800 in the standard letter.

The rivalry between these young geniuses is going back for years.  The 2018 Norway Chess Tournament Betting Odds told us the other emerging Chess Masters have a bigger chance to win against the Norwegian phenomenon year by year. Later, last year we mentioned that if you are willing to bet on the 2019 Norway Chess Tournament to end the same as last year, you can lose because the Carlsen boy is already reached his play peak. But now, based on statistics and forecasts he is the absolute winner of all these events. However, sooner or later a new champion must appear, that’s how life works. When will Magnus’ heyday end?
