New Jeff Bezos Odds For Space Travel And Time Magazine’s Person Of The Year

Time Man of the Year odds for Jeff Bezos 2021

Jeff Bezos may have stepped back from his leadership role at Amazon, but that hasn’t stopped him from remaining globally relevant in the realm of economics and space travel.

While he may be more well known for starting the online shopping juggernaut, Amazon, Jeff Bezos is now lighting up the odds at entertainment betting sites for outcomes relating to his upcoming space flight next Tuesday.

Blue Origin, the company responsible for this upcoming space mission, recently placed a spot on the flight up for auction. The anonymous bidder that secured the seat for $28 million had to bow out, thus his spot was awarded to 18-year-old Oliver Daemon who will become the youngest space traveler in history.

The rocket will carry the moniker of “New Shepherd,” and will escort four human beings into space for an 11-minute flight that is intended to test the craft’s capabilities.

The following entertainment prop bet lists Texas as the most likely landing spot for the returning capsule, but the slightest miscalculation on re-entry could cause for the state of New Mexico or the country of Mexico to receive Bezos and company.

Where Will The Capsule Containing Jeff Bezos Land On Re-Entry?

  • Texas -1000
  • New Mexico +350
  • Mexico +1200

Of course, upon landing in an international territory that is not governed by the United States, the craft and all people on board become subject to regional laws and governance.

The following Bezos odds at online sportsbook sites suggest that the Mexican government will not opt for an international incident and instead allow the New Shepherd and its crew to return to the USA.

Bezos Capsule To Be Seized By The Mexican Federales?

  • No -10000
  • Yes +1500

Who will emerge from the capsule following its landing? The odds suggest Bezos will indeed be the glory hog and exit the capsule first, but if he doesn’t, the line implies that he’ll come out last.

In What Order Will Jeff Bezos Emerge First From Capsule On Landing?

  • First EVEN
  • Fourth +150
  • Second +450
  • Third +450

All this extra attention on Jeff Bezos’ space flight will certainly draw some investors toward Amazon stock. The odds on Amazon’s stock price following next Tuesday’s launch are predicting a change in value from the prior day.

Amazon Share Price At Close Of Launch Day Up Or Down On Previous Day’s Close?

  • Yes -300
  • No +200

Although not favorable, odds on Jeff Bezos to become the 2021 Time Person Of The Year are currently at 20-to-1, and considering his Howard Hughes-like entrepreneurial and aeronautical endeavors, he is a legitimate contender.

Who Will Be Named Time Person Of The Year For 2021?

  • Doctors, Nurses, First Responders, Healthcare Workers +175
  • World Health Organization +400
  • Anthony Fauci +700
  • Joe Biden +700
