- Women’s Doubles odds
Let’s do a quick recap. There has been a total of 23 Badminton World Championships since 1977. The most impressive record is set by China with 20 wins in the Women’s Doubles competition. Plus, they have the longest winning streak of 14 years! The 2018 Badminton World Championships Women’s Doubles odds hint that they could have the 15th streak.
Who Could Succeed in 2018?
For China to become the winner, the whole nation is counting on Qingchen Chen/Jia Yifan (4.00). The duo’s performance this year has been top notch. They are now placing first on the Badminton World Championship 2018 rankings. We expect no less from the defending champion of 2017.
On the other hand, it’s a shame that the 2018 Badminton World Championships Women’s Doubles odds only favor one other Chinese pair. Although not a favorite, Yu Xiaohan/Yaqiong Huang still have 10.00 odds to become the winner.
According to online gambling news in China, there is not enough Chinese talent pool this year. Out of 41 pairs competing, only two have the likelihood to continue China’s winning streak. Can they make it? To answer this question, we have to know their opponents first.
Teams to Overthrow China
Japanese and Denmark teams from last year’s semi-finals are not making things easy, according to online sportsbook sites in China. Actually, the bookies’ favorite to win 2018 Badminton World Championships Women’s Doubles is Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi (3.74) from Japan. Rumor has it that they have improved since the last time they lost to Qingchen Chen/Jia Yifan.
Online gambling sites in China also estimate great winning odds for Danish Team Kamilla Rytter Juhl/Christinna Pedersen at 6.00. They are number two on the world rankings, which makes them somewhat more intimidating than Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi.
The last team that we will mention is So Hee Lee/Seung Chan Shin (11.00). The Korean newbies having made it this far is already a feat in itself. Who knows? They might be the first South Korean women to win Badminton World Championships Doubles since 1995!
Bet on the 2018 Badminton World Championships: Women’s Doubles!
There is no denying that Danish, Japanese and South Korean teams have become better. This is especially true for Kamilla Rytter Juhl/Christinna Pedersen (6.00) and Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi (3.74) who might even overthrow China this year.
However, with strong support and cheer from their home country, we still believe Qingchen Chen/Jia Yifan (4.00) and Yu Xiaohan/Yaqiong Huang (10.00) are more likely to win.
