Christmas Betting Markets 

Christmas betting is basically betting on markets that are associated with Christmas, and there are plenty of them.

They aren’t necessarily markets that you should take seriously, after all it’s a lot easier to predict a goalscorer than it is the weather! They’re tons of fun, and right here you’ll find some of the more popular markets...

Christmas No. 1

Being top of the charts at Christmas is a big deal and every year a bundle of artists release their efforts in a bid to write themselves into history.

Betting on it is essentially placing a bet on an outright market. You place a bet on a song to become Christmas No. 1 in the Official UK Charts and if it does, you win the bet. If the artist doesn’t reach the top of the charts isn’t Christmas number one on December 25, your bet loses.

The winner of Christmas No. 1 is announced in the Chart Show on the Friday before Christmas between 4pm and 5.45pm.

White Christmas

Dreaming of a white Christmas? Well, you can even bet on it!

It’s a wager that involves betting on whether snow will fall in the UK, or even globally. You’ll be offered different odds for different locations. All you need to do is back a location where it will snow!

If it does, you win.

Top TV Christmas Show

This is a market in which punters are able to bet on which TV show will get the highest audience over the Christmas period. This is based upon live television views (so excluding catch up and streaming). In order to win you must select the show with the highest audience.

White Christmas Odds 

Will it snow in Britain this year? The odds don’t necessarily think so. Certainly not in large parts. It’s favourite to do so in Aberdeen, while others parts of Scotland are also favoured.

London is a 6/1 shot, while it seems unlikely in the likes of Cardiff and Penzance.

Christmas No. 1 Odds 

Down the years, many have enjoyed the glory of Christmas No. 1, from the likes of Elton John, Band Aid and even Bob the Builder.

This year there are some big tracks going for it, including LadBaby, a 1/3 favourite with Paddy Power.

It’s a market which dozens of top bookies offer, with the Christmas No. 1 heavy backed!

Top Christmas TV Show Odds 2019 

Christmas TV sees millions of families crowd around the set to watch the likes of Doctor Who, Call The Midwife and of course The Queen’s Speech.

There are some big specials on in 2019, including Gavin & Stacey which returns after almost a decade away. It’s tipped to be the most watched show, but will the bookmakers be right?
