Heughan, Sam Heughan: Odds slashed on Outlander star to play Bond


Our traders have chopped the odds on Sam Heughan becoming the next James Bond.

A flurry of bets over the last few days have forced bookies to cut odds from 8/1 to just 4/1 on Sam Heughan replacing Daniel Craig as 007.

That puts him third in the betting, with James Norton still 2/1 favourite and Richard Madden just behind at 3/1.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “All eyes are seemingly on Sam Heughan at the moment with odds continuing to tumble on him replacing Daniel Craig – he’s now leapfrogged Tom Hiddleston into third-favourite in the betting.”
