License to Cill: Peaky Blinders star popular pick for Bond role

Cillian Murphy is the most popular pick with our punters to play James Bond next, according to our traders.

Murphy’s odds were already slashed from 20/1 to 10/1 during the week after a string of bets, and the actor has received more backing since.

No other actor has seen more bets placed on them to play James Bond after Daniel Craig announced he would be stepping aside from the role.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Punters seem to think the name’ll be Murphy, Cillian Murphy, with the Peaky Blinders star’s odds continuing to tumble.”
