As the spooky season smothers our society once again we take a look at the seven best Halloween bets available at Bet365 and similar this year.
All Hallows Eve has a long and interesting history. Fortunately, we have, as a society, eschewed most of the traditional celebrations of this bizarre holiday. The only people who actually seem to care these days appear to be children and those working in marketing. However, beyond the tacky shop displays and inappropriately costumed kids there’s an opportunity to have some real fun. So here are our seven best Halloween bets over at online sportsbook sites in the UK like Bet365.
1. Bet On Boris Johnson
No, unfortunately, it is very unlikely the spirits of the damned will rise up and drag this ridiculous Muppet back to hell with them. And you’d not be allowed to wager on it anyway. Not under UK gambling laws. However, you can bet on UK politics seeing a shift as winter sets in. Boris could well find the ghosts of his errors come back to haunt him quite soon. Thus you may find one of the best Halloween bets in the odds on Rishi Sunak being the next leader of the Conservatives.
2. Bet On Lewis Hamilton
No, he won’t turn up at the Mexican Grand Prix in a witches costume. Yes, yes, of course, it would suit him. The hat especially. No, this is one of the best Halloween bets because Lewis Hamilton is facing a nightmare already. He’s trailing Max Verstappen in the F1 Driver’s Championship by more than he finds comfortable. However whilst a lot of people will bet on Max Verstappen to hold off Lewis, you might want to back the Brit. He may turn on the magic.
3. Bet On The Melbourne Cup
No, the headless horseman isn’t going to win it. The online bookies in the UK seem to feel a horse named “Inventivise” will. It gets the best odds on the Melbourne Cup at the moment at Bet365. It hovers at around 7/5. Meanwhile “Spanish Mission” gets a far longer 5/1 in second place at the bet365 Sportsbook. Which, obviously, makes it one of the best Halloween bets this year. Indeed even some of the longer shots are worth a look if you want an each-way wager. Someone has to come third.
4. Bet On The T20 World Cup
India are haunting themselves. For ages they were the pre-tournament favorites at online betting sites in the UK like Bet365. Alas since then the Pakistanis walked all over them with big, big boots on. Indeed where once you might have automatically bet on India to win the T20 World Cup, now the odds on Pakistan now look tasty. Even a bet on England isn’t barmy. Their odds on the T20 World Cup now put them on the list of best Halloween bets, along with a bet on Pakistan.
5. Bet On Donald Trump
Some of the best Halloween bets are truly to wager on horror. For instance, the nightmare before Christmas from 2016 could reoccur. So those considering a bet on Joe Biden to win in 2024 may want to think again. The bookies aren’t extending their odds on Donald Trump. They think he’ll run again. So you can’t, alas, bet on US politics settling back down again anytime soon. You can just bet on the Democrats to lose the midterms and bet on the Republicans to lose their minds.
6. Bet On A White Christmas
Yes, you might think this a little twee but this is on our list of the best Halloween bets because it’s a true horror. Whilst placing your bet on sports in the UK this weekend, check out the odds on a White Christmas. Notice anything? That’s right, bookies like Bet365 give it less and less chance each and every year. Now climate change is a divisive issue, but if people won’t believe the scientists, perhaps they’ll believe the bookies. They know it’s real, their prices prove that true.
7. Bet On The Booker Prize
You can get odds on the Booker Prize at Bet365? Since when? It’s almost spooky. Who goes around putting bets on authors? Okay, yes, publishers do, but they’re already all mad. Just seems a little weird the bookies are inviting the rest of us to join in. Are we really likely to look through all the best Halloween bets available online and decide to bet on Damon Galgut, Richard Powers, Maggie Shipstead or Patricia Lockwood? And just how creepy would we all be if we did?
We look beyond the witches, ghosts and carved pumpkins to check out seven of the best Halloween bets available at Bet365 this year.
