Bookmakers split on whether Chris Evans will continue as Top Gear host

Britian's bookmakers appear to take very differing views on whether or not Chris Evans will continue as Top gear presenter for a second series with Ladbrokes and William Hill offering vastly different odds in their specials market.


The new look Top Gear has split public opinion and it appears that Britain's bookmakers can't decide on Chris Evans and his team either.

Both Ladbrokes and William Hill have opened some specials markets on the BBC show and the odds being offered are very, very different.

William Hill are convinced that Evans will remain as the host of Top Gear and make the former TFI Friday presenter just 1/6 to continue for a second series. They make it 7/2 that he is axed, having offered 11/4 on that possibility before the second episode was aired.

William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly believes that the public are warming to Evans and told Bettingpro:

“Slowly but surely, the new format seems to be winning over its critics and it looks as though only the staunchest of Clarkson fans are refusing to say a nice word.”

Ladbrokes are, however, not anywhere near as convinced and offer just even money that Evans doesn't return for a second series of Top Gear. They make is 8/11 that he returns but that is some way from the 1/6 certainty that Hills suggest.

The Magic Sign are also taking bets on the fate of Evans co-host Matt LeBlanc and make it 5/6 that he is retained for series two and 5/6 that he is ditched. 

To be on the Top Gear markets at Ladbrokes go to Ladbrokes>TV & Specials. If you open a new account using promo code MAXCASH50 you will receive a £50 free bet.
