Royal Baby Betting Markets

Royal Baby Betting Markets!

Mary, Victoria and John have been installed as equal $9.00 favourites with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au to be the name of the Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge’s first child following news this morning that Kate Middleton is pregnant.

Diana and Frances are next in the market at $10, followed by Phillip, Anne, Charles and George at $11.

Brynne ($151) and Fergie ($251) are the outsiders in the market.

In other royal baby markets, speculation is mounting that there may be a multiple birth, with twins priced at $9.00, Triplets $41 and Quadruplets $101.

It appears unlikely the baby will be a ginger ninja ($7.00), with the baby favoured to have brown hair at $2.75.

Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton are both $2.00 favourites to be the Godfather and Godmother.

“Word is that Kate has had bad morning sickness which could suggest more than one baby is on the way. Either way we are tipping they will keep the name traditional, otherwise the Queen might lose it,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
