The betting company has an extensive catalogue of actors who could potentially play Bond after Craig.

One of those names is Elba’s, who’s at 10/1 on to be given the role after Craig.

However, there are a couple of other names who are ahead of him in the race to become the next Bond.

The actors currently ahead of him are James Norton who’s at 2/1 on to become the next 007, Sam Heughan at 3/1, and then Elba’s fellow MCU co-star Tom Hiddleson at 5/1.
