Tom Hardy Reclaims Spot as Favorite to be Next James Bond

–Hardy Improves While Hopper, Madden Worsen in James Bond Betting Markets–

Tom Hardy once again has the strongest odds to be the next James Bond, according to betting aggregators US-Bookies.com (See Disclaimer Below). His odds to take over Daniel Craig’s role have improved from 9/2 (19.2% implied probability) to 3/1 (25%). Hardy has overtaken Tom Hopper, whose odds worsened from 7/2 (22.2%) to 11/2 (15.4%). 

“The Tom Copper surge seems to have ended, as Tom Hardy is now back on top as the most likely actor to be the next James Bond,” says a US-Bookies spokesperson. “In fact, Hardy’s current odds are better than Coppers were at their peak during the end of October.” 

Richard Madden’s odds to take over the role also worsened from 4/1 (20% implied probability) to 6/1 (14.3%). He’s followed by Regé-Jean Page, whose odds also weakened from 11/2 (15.4%) to 8/1 (11.1%). 

“Regé-Jean Page is another addition to the list of actors who were the betting favorite to be the next James Bond at some point in October,” says a US-Bookies spokesperson. “While he had the strongest odds early last month, they quickly trended negatively to the point where he’s now fourth on the list.”

James Norton and Sam Heughan noticed positive movement in the James Bond betting markets. Norton’s odds improved from 14/1 (6.7% implied probability) to 12/1 (7.7%), while Heughan improved from 20/1 (4.8%) to 14/1 (6.7%). They’re closely followed by James Bell, who emerged at 16/1 (5.9%), where he’s now tied with Mahershala Ali and Henry Cavill.
