As Viewers Warm To Top Gear Odds Suggest Evans Is Guaranteed To Return For Series Two

It would appear that TV fans are warming to the new panel of Top Gear with episode three drawing praise from critics and viewers alike. Having offered 11/4 that Chris Evans would fail to return for a second series hosting the show, that price has drifted to 7/2 with his odds of returning a very short 1/6.

“Slowly but surely, the new format seems to be winning over its critics and it looks as though only the staunchest of Clarkson fans are refusing to say a nice word,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

It is 7/1 that the series attracts 5m players at any point.


William Hill odds:

Chris Evans to return for a second series of Top Gear: 1/6 yes; 7/2 no

Will any of the remaining three episodes of Top Gear attract over 5m peak viewers: 7/1 yes
