Celebrity Novelty Bets to Start the New Year

The New Year has arrived and with it a number of fun novelty markets on events in the year to come. Paddy Power in particular seems be offering a huge variety of markets on anything from George Clooney’s next girlfriend to how many more times Lindsay Lohan will be arrested.

Online bookmakers are full of novelty markets at the moment, offering odds on forthcoming celebrity scandals, marriages and divorces

If you enjoy a celebrity scandal then maybe you’d like to bet on the first super-injunction exposure, you’ll find odds ranging from 2/1 on a footballer to 25/1 on a member of the Royal Family. Alternatively you could bet on the first to announce a baby, will it be William and Kate, Tom Cruise and Katy Holmes, the Beckhams or maybe Cheryl and Ashley Cole.

Perhaps you think that Liz Hurley’s romance with Shane Warne is doomed, you’ll find odds of5/2 at Paddy Power that they are the first couple to split in 2012 and odds of 4/1 at William Hill. Alternatively, maybe you think they’ll get married, if so there are odds of 6/1 available but Alex Reid and Chantelle are said to be the most likely with odds of 1/3.

As mentioned you can also bet on George Clooney’s girlfriends. How many will he get through this year? The odds range from 10/11 on just one all the way to 33/1 for five or more.

Whilst celebrity gossip seems to be incredibly popular at UK betting sites this year, who will be the next British celebrity to succeed across the pond. You’ll find odds of 2/1 on Jonathan Ross, 5/1 on Graham Norton and 40/1 on Charlotte Church.

All of these and much more are available at a number of online bookmakers. Novelty bets are a fun way to begin the year so why not get in on the fun and make your New Year predictions.
