Michael Fassbender James Bond Odds Are Surging


It’s been revealed that the odds for Michael Fassbender on being named as the next James Bond have surged recently.

People are desperate to know who will be named as the next James Bond after Daniel Craig.

No Time To Die will be Craig’s last outing as Bond, and naturally, the question of who will play the British secret agent next is on a lot of people’s minds.

One name that we’ve often floated is Michael Fassbender.

The Irish actor has been a pick of ours ever since we saw him in Inglorious Basterds.

And his performance in X-Men: First Class only solidified my belief that Fassbender was born to play the role.

Well, according to OddsChecker, Fassbenders betting odds on being named as the next James Bond have soared in the last seven days.

Looking at the betting market doesn’t always mean that something’s going on, but it does mean that people are starting to place bets on a specific thing happening.

In this case, people are placing bets on Fassbender being picked to play Bond next.

Fassbender’s odds to become the next James Bond currently sit at +2500, or a 3.8% chance.

These are still pretty slim odds, and it means that he’s outside the top ten most likely actors to be cast as Bond.

Rege-Jean Page is still the frontrunner as far as the betting market’s concerned.

However, over the last seven days, Fassbender has been backed by 24.49% of bets, by far the most out of any actor in the market.

People are also betting heavily on Henry Cavill to be the next Bond

After Fassbender, Henry Cavill has been the most popular pick over that time period, backed by 16.8% of bettors.

The third most popular pick to be the next James Bond is Page at 16.3%.

OddsChecker spokesman Kyle Newman had this to say on Fassbender’s new improved odds of being cast as the next James Bond:

It’s unclear what’s fuelling the surge for Fassbender. The favourites at the top of the betting market had been stable for months. It was either Cavill, Page, Elba, or Hardy. Anybody else was just sneaking into the top five. Yet, here comes Fassbender. Of course, Fassbender has long been connected to the role. In 2016 he publicly stated he’d never play Bond. In 2019, it was rumoured that he would be the next Bond. Yet, over the last year all has been quiet. So, it’s interesting to see that Fassbender has all of a sudden burst back onto the Bond scene.
