Television Show Gambling: Betting On The Simpsons And Hell’s Kitchen Odds

Gordon Ramsay and Bart Simpson

It seems that every time we visit an online sportsbook, there are more options for entertainment betting populating the boards. The entertainment category used to be confined to awards shows and reality television competition series, but now the spectrum has grown to include scripted TV programs, movies, and professional wrestling.

Bovada Sportsbook has created odds for two television productions we’ve yet to see lines on before: The Simpsons Season 34 and Hell’s Kitchen Season 21.

Betting On The Simpsons

The following line may narrowly qualify as celebrity deathmatch betting, as correctly choosing the next Simpsons character to die will earn cash payouts of 8-to-1 at minimum.

While Grampa Simpson is the elder statesman of the family, time never seems to pass in the Simpsons’ universe. The show has been around since 1989, but none of the characters have aged a day.

In 1989, Maggie Simpson was a newborn that had yet to learn to talk or walk. Flash forward to Season 34 in 2022, and Maggie is still a toddler, despite the flourishes of intelligence she’s revealed over the years.

That said, old age may not be the most likely cause of death for a cast member of The Simpsons. Will the next Simpsons’ character to lose their life suffer a violent death?

Next Simpsons Character To Be Killed Off

  • Grampa Simpson +800
  • Monty Burns +1000
  • Patty Bouvier +1000
  • Ned Flanders +1200
  • Selma Bouvier +1200
  • Barney Gumble +1600
  • Carl Carlson +1600
  • Comic Book Guy +1600
  • Lenny Leonard +1600
  • Reverend Lovejoy +1600
  • Nelson Muntz +1800
  • Principal Skinner +1800
  • Groundskeeper Willie +2000
  • Milhouse Van Outen +2000
  • Sideshow Bob +2000
  • Chief Wiggum +2500
  • Krusty The Clown +2500
  • Mayor Quimby +2500
  • Moe Szyslak +2500
  • Maggie Simpson +3300
  • Marge Simpson +3300
  • Homer Simpson +4000
  • Bart Simpson +5000
  • Lisa Simpson +5000

Bovada is willing to accept action on other characters upon request and will add the cast member and their odds to the above entertainment prop bet if approved.

The death must also be permanent and not a plot element of a “Treehouse of Horror” episode that airs each season near Halloween.

The Simpsons Odds For Longevity

  • To Reach Season 40 With No Breaks -1000
  • To Reach Season 50 With No Breaks -150

The above prop is also taking action at Bovada.LV and asks bettors to lay some money on the Simpsons making it to season 40 or season 50 without any pauses between years.

The longest-running television series of all time is poised to easily surpass 40 seasons and features probable odds to reach season 50. That means we can count on enjoying The Simpsons until at least the year 2028 and possibly 2038.

Betting On Hell’s Kitchen Season 21

Another television show that now features betting odds for the first time is Hell’s Kitchen. This series places a red and a blue team of chefs against each other in culinary battles until only one contestant remains.

Hell’s Kitchen Odds For Winning Age Group

  • 20-Something -1000
  • 40-Something +500

Instead of providing futures that list all cast members from most to least likely to win, Bovada has split the demographics in two, asking which age range will be victorious this season.

Season 21 of Hell’s Kitchen is subtitled “Battle of the Ages,” placing chefs in their 20’s against a group that ranges from age 40-49. The odds favor youth, but bets placed on the 40-something chefs will earn 5-to-1 net payouts if successful.

Like any other entertainment betting odds, if you are interested in placing a wager, do so now because these types of lines have a knack for disappearing quickly.
