Richard Madden Well Backed For Bond
William Hill have cut the price of Richard Madden being named as the next Bond from 6/1 to 4/1. “Winning a Golden Globe is a massive deal for Richard Madden as the only thing against him was perhaps a lack of gravitas, which he clearly now has,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
Next James Bond: 6/4 Tom Hiddleston, 7/4 James Norton, 4/1 Richard Madden, 5/1 Idris Elba, 6/1 Tom Hardy, 12/1 Cillian Murphy, 20/1 Aidan Turner, 20/1 Henry Cavill, 33/1 Bar
Lincoln In The Bardo is the 11/8 favourite to win the Man Booker Prize with William Hill, however, it is relative outsiders Elmet (9/2) and Autumn (4/1) that have attracted the most bets.
The countdown to Christmas began in earnest on Thursday with the release of over 500 books all battling to be the festive bestseller and William Hill make Jamie Oliver at 3/1 the slight favourite, ahead of David Walliams at 7/2
