Novelty betting has grown to become extremely popular over the past several years, but did you know you can bet on Television? Here are the top 3 TV shows to bet on 2017.
Some incredible TV shows are playing right now, and PaddyPower is already allowing their members to bet on the outcomes. Some are reality TV shows, while others are dramatic book adaptations. Let’s take a look at what TV wagers you can make today.
Bet on Celebrity Big Brother
The controversial Celebrity Big Brother has re-emerged this year, and you can already bet on who wins. This has been the only season in history to have two separate contestants leave voluntarily, and had the most contestants in total since 2001.
Celebrity Big Brother Betting Odds
- James Cosmo: 5/4
- Speidi: 9/2
- Coleen Nolan: 5/1
- Jedward: 10/1
- Calum Best: 10/1
Leading the betting odds to win Celebrity Big Brother is James Cosmo. The famous actor from Braveheart, Game of Thrones, and Trainspotting has already earned his spot in the final by receiving the most votes from his cast mates to earn immunity. Cosmo’s odds to win Big Brother are currently set at 5/4.
Speidi are another Big Brother betting favorite with PaddyPower odds of 9/2. Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt recently left Nicola McLean in years after blindsiding her in the votes.
Want to go with an underdog? Calum Best’s odds to win are currently set at 10/1. The former Big Brother 15 alum is certainly not at the top of most online sportsbooks in the UK picks to win, but as we’ve seen in the past, anything can happen in Celebrity Big Brother.
Bet on Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones is one of the most popular and highly reviewed series in history. The George R.R. Martin book-adapted series is now on their seventh season, and members of PaddyPower can place their bet on who will rule Westeros in the end.
At the top of the betting odds is Daenerys Targaryen, also known as the “mother of dragons.” Targaryen has been a key character throughout every season of the series, slowly inching her way to the iron throne. Many analysts of the show now believe she will be the one sitting on the Iron Throne at the end of season 8. Daernerys’ odds to rule Westeros are currently set at 6/4.
The second most likely ruler of Westeros is fan-favorite hero Jon Snow, who returned from the dead after being killed by his own men at the Mutiny of Castle Rock. Snow too has been a major character in the series, and has the kind of temperament that would make him a perfect king to rule Westeros. Snow’s odds are currently set at 5/2.
Once again, we can’t list the best TV shows to bet on in 2017 without throwing in some underdogs. PaddyPower lists “The Mountain’s” odds to sit on the iron throne at 175/1 meaning you can earn serious cash if he manages to make UK gambling news by becoming the king.
Bet on The Jump
The last addition to our list of TV shows to bet on in 2017 is the British series, The Jump. This show follows a number of celebrities who attempt to master a variety of winter sports. It is now in its fourth season, and some betting favorites have emerged.
The Jump Betting Odds
- Bradley Wiggins: 3/1
- Louis Smith: 4/1
- Jade Jones: 11/2
- Jason Robinson: 7/1
- Gareth Thomas: 10/1
The Jump betting odds are not nearly as varied as the other shows listed. Leading the betting odds to win the show is former pro cyclist Bradley Wiggins, with odds of 3/1.
The biggest underdog here is Caprice Bourret, an American businesswoman with minimal knowledge of winter sports. Her odds to win are currently set at 33/1.
