Norway Chess Super Tournament betting odds show that the World Champion is the favorite as usual. 2020 has been a good year for Carlsen as he won the majority of the tournaments he participated in. However, Caruana will pose a serious threat in the Norway Chess Super Tournament as it is in classical format.
Magnus Carlsen Is On A Roll
Magnus Carlsen is currently the world chess champion in all time formats. The Norwegian grandmaster has been the World Champion in classical format since 2012 and has recently become the rapid and blitz champion as well. Carlsen has shown no signs of slowing down in 2020 despite the pandemic. Instead, he is on a roll winning a tournament after a tournament. For instance, he won the Magnus Carlsen Tour Finals in the most exciting match of 2020 against Hikaru Nakamura. His most recent win was in the Saint Louis Rapid and Blitz after sharing first place with GM Wesley So. Considered by many to be the greatest player of all time, online sportsbook sites in the US place him a favorite in any tournament he participates in. For instance, at 1xBET Sportsbook, the Norway Chess Super Tournament betting odds for Magnus to win are 6.00.
Fabiano Caruana Is Not Having A Good Year But Always Dangerous
Although Fabiano is not having the best of years in 2020, he is still a top contender in this tournament. He is one of the best classical players in the world with a rating of 2842. Therefore, the Norway Chess Super Tournament is his best chance to win another title in 2020. Earlier this year, the American grandmaster won the 2020 Tata Steel with a dominating fashion. He finished with a score of 10/13 which is 2 points ahead of the World Champion. Caruana did not lose a single game in that tournament and showed why he is one of the best classical players in the world. As a result, 1xBET Sportsbook placed just behind Carlsen in their Norway Chess Super Tournament betting odds. Caruana’s odds to win his second classical tournament this year are 6.00.
Norway Chess Super Tournament Betting Odds: Levon Aronian & The Underdogs Of The Tournaments
Another elite grandmaster who is participating in this tournament is Levon Aronian. Just like Caruana, Aronian is one of the best classical players. He always shows up with solid preparations and surprises opponents with new ideas. He had an ELO rating of 2830 back in 2014 which makes him the 4th highest ranked in player in history. As a result, 1xBET Sportsbook placed him in third place with betting odds equal to 8.9. Several other underdogs were invited to participate in the tournament. However, the Norway Chess Super Tournament betting odds indicate that it is unlikely they will get the title. The following table shows those players along with their betting odds.
