VENOM star Tom Hardy replaces James Norton as 007 favourite following Season Finale of McMafia According to BetWay
Episode 8 of McMafia has spelled the end to James Norton’s reign as Betway’s favourite to be named the next James Bond.
Drifting from 2/1 to 5/2 to be the next 007 since Sunday night, Norton’s performance in the crime drama’s final instalment has left him being replaced at the top of the betting by Tom Hardy.
Hardy has been backed into 9/4 from 3/1 and the leading online bookmaker thinks it’s now just a two-horse race for the Licence to Kill.
It’s a big leap in the betting to Idris Elba and Tom Hiddleston who can both be backed at 6/1, while Aidan Turner, fancied at 3/1 when starring in Poldark, is out to 7/1 for the secret agent role.
Betway’s Alan Alger, said “Future Bonds are being judged on their current performances and that’s left McMafia star James Norton very unpopular in the betting over the past 24 hours.
McMafia’s finale has been dubbed anticlimactic by a host of critics and with Norton at the forefront we’ve pushed him out to 5/2 from 2/1.
The money has come back in for Tom Hardy since Sunday night and he’s now a big fancy to be named the next 007 at just 9/4.”
