James Bond – Hiddleston Drifts – Hamm Enters The Betting

Tom Hiddleston has drifted in the betting to become the next Bond from 6/4 to 2/1 but he remains second favourite based on bets placed before he became romantically involved with Taylor Swift. Aidan Turner is the current odds on favourite with Damien Lewis 10/1. One surprise entry into the market has been John Hamm, who looks a genuine contender at 50/1.

“James Bond is the King of cool and Tom Hiddleston is acting like a star struck teenager – personally I think his Bond ambitions in are shreds,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.

Next James Bond: 8/11 Aidan Turner, 2/1 Tom Hiddleston, 10/1 Damian Lewis, 12/1 Idris Elba, 14/1 Tom Hardy, 16/1 Jamie Bell, 16/1 John Hamm, 25/1 Luke Evans, 25/1 Michael Fassbender, 33/1 Henry Cavill, 40/1 Rupert Friend, 50/1 Bar
