Man Booker Prize 2016 Betting Odds - Bookies backing McGuire for Booker Prize

Ian McGuire is the favourite to win the Man Booker Prize 2016 with his novel The North Water tipped to scoop the prestiguous literary gong, although the bookmakers odds suggest that he faces some stiff competition this year.

Ian McGuire is the favourite to win this year's Man Booker Prize, according to Ladbrokes.

McGuire tops the bookies' list at 3/1 upon release of the longlist, with Paul Beatty, Deborah Levy and Elizabeth Strout all tied in second place at 5/1. 

It's a typically competitive list as far as the literary oddsmakers are concerned,  with another 3 authors all quoted at 10/1 and under. 

American entrant Ottessa Moshfegh and double Man Booker Prize winner J.M Coetzee are given the least chance of winning, as both are installed as 16/1 outsiders a piece. 

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: "McGuire was hotly tipped to make the longlist and does so alongside several surprise entries so he heads straight to the top of the betting charts. Typically, it's wide open behind him and Beatty, Levy, Strout & Szalay all look decent bets to make the shortlist cut."
