Last Updated:

–Oddsmakers’ Top Two Picks are from Game of Thrones–

Tom Hopper is the bookies’ new favorite to be the next James Bond, according to betting aggregators (See Disclaimer Below). His odds to take over Daniel Craig’s role have improved from 100/1 (1% implied probability) to 7/2 (22.2%). He’s followed by Richard Madden, whose odds significantly improved from 16/1 (5.9%) to 4/1 (20%) since the beginning of the month.  

“After a sudden flurry of primarily UK-based bets in the last 24 hours, Tom Copper has emerged from practically nowhere to become the new favorite to be the next James Bond,” says a US-Bookies spokesperson. “James Madden’s odds have also surged as of late, putting him in the second favorite spot, meaning the two most likely actors to take over Daniel Craig’s role also appeared in Game of Thrones.”

Though he was the favorite earlier this month, Regé-Jean Page has worsened in the betting markets. His odds have shifted from 5/2 (28.6% implied probability) to 11/2 (15.4%) since October 5. Tom Hardy, who was also once the favorite to take over the role, worsened from 3/1 (25%) to 9/2 (18.2%) in this time. 

“While bookies mainly expect a British actor to take over the Bond role, they’re not counting out an American,” says a US-Bookies spokesperson. “Mahershala Ali appears to be the most likely US actor to take over the role, as his odds of doing so are 12/1.”
