CULVER CITY, Calif. – There are several entertainment wagers available at online sportsbooks that have sports bettors wagering on one of the bigger questions in TV and film.

With the passing of the late Alex Trebek, bettors are putting action on who will be the next host of Jeopardy. Trebek has been the host for 30 years.

Sports bettors are also wagering on who will replace Danial Craig as the new James Bond as well as taking action on Dancing With the Stars

Final Jeopardy

First up, entertainment bettors are taking action on the next Jeopardy Host. Ken Jennings is the current favorite to replace the late host.

Next Jeopardy Full-Time Host

  • Ken Jennings +100
  • LeVar Burton +200
  • George Stephanopoulos +500
  • Neil deGrasse Tyson +1400
  • Alex Faust +1800
  • Laura Coates +1800
  • Ryan Seacrest +1800
  • Sajak +2000
  • Mina Kimes +2200
  • Jimmy Kimmel +2500
  • Neil Patrick Harris +2500
  • Tom Bergeron +2500
  • Trevor Noah +2800
  • Wolf Blitzer +2800

Jennings is the biggest winner of Jeopardy in history. He holds the longest win streak of 74 and is a fixture in the community for Jeopardy fans. It is only natural that sports bettors would be leaning in his favor to replace Trebek.

No official hint as to who the next host will be has come, however, and longshot odds could be major draws for entertainment bettors.

Neil deGrasse Tyson, for example, has grown in the last decade as a go-to fixture for facts online and as a guest star of many TV shows, radio shows, and podcasts. Should he be named the new host it would be a surprise, but not be farfetched.

The Next Bond…James Bond

‘No Time to Die’ will be the last time Daniel Craig dawns the role of James Bond. Sports bettors are leaning in favor of either James Norton or Tom Hardy to play the titular secret agent.

Next James Bond after Daniel Craig

  • James Norton +300
  • Tom Hardy +300
  • Sam Heughan +400
  • Idris Elba +500
  • Richard Madden +500
  • Jack Lowden +800
  • Tom Hiddleston +800
  • Henry Cavill +1000
  • Aidan Turner +1400
  • Cillian Murphy +1600
  • Michael Fassbender +1600
  • Female +2000
  • Jude Law +2000

Both James Norton and Tom Hardy are major British action stars, taking the leady role in huge box office films. It is not a farfetched thought to assume that they could lead as the next bond following Craig.

Both actors fit the bill physically, however, sports neither actor has been attached to the role, even in rumors.

A common name that has popped up surrounding James Bond for years is Idris Elba. The Luther star has even publicly acknowledged the many fan petitions for him to take the role.

Elba has, however, seemed to express disinterest in playing bond due to the racial backlash he has received by just being rumored for the role.
