Sports Betting sites are getting ready for the busiest betting month of the summer with the Duchess of Cambridge, aka Kate Middleton due to give birth to her Royal Baby on 13th July, 2013.
The Duchess gave her final official engagement when serving as godmother for the newest ship for Princess Cruises recently before going on official maternity leave.
Paddy Power, the Irish bookie and many other Sports Betting sites are offering punters a huge range of Royal Baby traditional as well as totally obscure betting odds.
Bookies appear to have made girls’ names their favorite for some time now, with the name Alexandra constantly being number one with odds of 2/1. Diana and Elizabeth follow with odds of 6/1 while Charlotte and Victoria make a third favorite at 7/1.
The Royal Palace has not confirmed the sex of the baby and it is, therefore, surprising that the first boy’s name only appears as George when the odds hit 14/1 while the top 6 names are all girls at the Sports Betting sites.
Several Sports Betting sites are also running some obscure odds giving punters a chance to wager on the name of the Royal Baby’s first boyfriend or girlfriend with Robert being a favorite at 33/1 followed by Edmund and Howard at 40/1.
Paddy Power is also carrying odds on which magazine will get exclusive first picture rights of the Royal Baby, as follows –
- Hello – 11/8
- Tatler – 5/2
- Elle – 4/1
- Vogue – 8/1
- OK – 8/1
- Now – 12/1
- Grazia – 20/1
Odds on the date of Royal Baby Number 2 are as follows –
- 2013 (in the case of twins) – 7/1
- 2014 – 11/10
- 2015 – 7/4
- 2016 or later – 4/1
