Next James Bond Odds: Market Sees Sudden Surge of Support for Jamie Dornan to Play 007

If you've been paying attention to our pieces covering next James Bond odds, you know just how temperamental they have been. For a while, Tom Hardy led the way when it came to next James Bond odds. Then. it was Henry Cavill and James Madden. Now, Rege-Jean Page is the favorite, according to the latest next James Bond odds.

But, Hardy, Cavill, Madden and Page aren't the most popular pick or fastest rising pick when it comes to next James Bond odds. No, that honor belongs to another actor. Jamie Dornan.

Dornan, who is best known for starring in the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise as main character Christian Grey, is not only seeing his next James Bond odds skyrocket, but he's also far and away the most popular pick among bettors over the last week.

US sportsbooks aren't offering next James Bond odds, and we don't expect they will, but the UK betting markets have zeroed in on Dornan to be the next 007.

Next James Bond Odds

So, we know that Rege-Jean Page is the next James Bond favorite and that Jamie Dornan is surging as his odds continue to shorten, but what exactly do the next James Bond odds look like at UK sportsbook?

We'll Page's +300 odds make him a pretty decent favorite over the second shortest odds, which belong to Tom Hardy at +490. Page's next James Bond odds imply he has a 25% chance of landing the role. Meanwhile, Hardy's implied chance sits at 16.9%.

You still have to go some ways down the board to find Jamie Dornan's next James Bond odds, but at +1200 he sits as the 7th favorite.

By itself, being the 7th favorite isn't earth-shattering news, but if you believe in trends then Jamie Dornan's placement could imply he's gearing up to play 007.

A few weeks ago, Dornan wasn't even appearing at the top of the odds board, with odds to play the next James Bond at +3000 or greater. Now, they've been slashed by more than half.
