William Hill can report a surge of bets for who will be the next James Bond after Daniel Craig confirmed that he has handed in his licence to Kill. James Norton has been extremely popular in 2020 and is the current favourite at 6/4, with Sam Heugham and Tom Hiddleston both 4/1. Perhaps the most interesting move in recent days has been the money for Jack Lowden, who is now 6/1 from 20/1.
"We have had our busiest day in the Bond betting and James Norton is a strong favourite to become the next 007," said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
Next James Bond (William Hill): 6/4 James Norton, 4/1 Sam Heugham, 4/1 Tom Hiddleston, 6/1 Jack Lowden, 6/1 Richard Madden, 7/1 Tom Hardy, 8/1 Henry Golding, 8/1 Michael Fassbender, 9/1 Idris Elba, 10/1 Chris Hemsworth, 10/1 Jamie Bell, 14/1 Aidan Turner, 16/1 Cillian Murphy, 16/1 Claes Bang, 16/1 Henry Cavill
