Prince Harry And Meghan Markle’s Baby Name Odds: Diana Tops The Market Following Oprah Interview
Newspapers all round the world are over-run with content following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's jaw-dropping interview with Oprah last night. There are obvious various talking points which will be discussed for weeks by people working in showbiz. However, OddsChecker's only focused on things that impact the betting markets...
The biggest betting news that came out of the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Oprah interview was the fact the couple are expecting a girl. This news caused a massive stir in the Royal Baby betting market, as expected, as half of the names have now been removed from the betting.
I know what you are thinking, and yes, the Royal Baby name betting market is a thing, and actually quite a big thing. Thousands of dollars are wagered around the world every time a Royal is expecting a baby. Unfortunately, US residents can't bet on the Royal Baby name just yet, despite sports betting being legal in various states. However, UK sports betting sites are offering odds, and our UK facing website, is taking bets on the Royal Baby name.
As mentioned, sports betting is legal in the US, with millions of people placing wagers with the likes of DraftKings, Bet365 and FanDuel. Check out the sports betting sites operating in your state here.
Back to the issue at hand, Diana has emerged as the betting favorite in the Royal Baby name odds market following the Oprah interview. Diana currently has odds of 4/1 (+400), which implies there's a 20% chance the baby will be named after Prince Harry's mother.
There's then a rather big gap in the market before you come to the second-favorite, which is currently Allegra. Online bettors can bet on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby being named Allegra at 11/1 (+1100), the odds imply there's a 8.3% chance the couples second child is named Allegra.
Isabella is the third favorite in the betting at 12/1 (+1200), closely followed by both Alice and Abigail, who have odds of 14/1 (+1400).
