Bet On These Wacky New Entertainment Odds At Bovada

How ‘bout them Dawgs?

If you were unlucky enough to listen to every pundit in the world and bet on Alabama to win the CFP National Championship, your gambling balance might be a little light for a while.

You can, of course, remedy that by making a quick deposit using any legitimate online betting banking option, but we understand if you’re a bit…uninspired.

And while the NFL Playoffs and the 2021-2022 Super Bowl will surely pique your interest all the way back up, we’re going to take a moment to point out some of the more lighthearted, weird things you can bet on right now.

Laughter, as they say, is the best medicine.

At any rate, these bizarre current events odds and entertainment betting lines come from Bovada Sportsbook:

2022 Kanye West Odds

Will Kanye West and Julia Fox announce their engagement in 2022?

  • Yes +250

Who is Julia Fox?

Will Julia Fox announce she’s pregnant with Kanye’s baby in 2022?

  • Yes +400

Who cares? We’re more interested in the baby’s name. Some variation of “Key” seems called for.

Will Kanye West and Kim Kardashian announce they’re getting back together in 2022?

  • Yes +2000

LOL, gross.

2022 Elon Musk Odds

Will Elon Musk apologize to China in 2022?

  • No -600
  • Yes +350

Apparently, these particular Elon Musk odds stem from the fact that a pair of SpaceX’s Starlink satellites flew too close to China’s space station, once in July 2021 and on another occasion in October 2021.

This, claims China, endangered their astronauts, and they were none too pleased.

Of course, Musk basically already “apologized” by opening a Tesla showroom in China’s Xinjiang province and pledging to expand its Chinese investments.

He’s probably saving his apologies for when the ridiculous Tesla bubble finally bursts.

2022 Drug Legalization Odds

How many states will legalize the use of psilocybin for medical and/or recreational use by the end of 2022?

  • Under 1.5 -350
  • Over 1.5 +225

Zero, probably. “Magic mushrooms” aren’t being as heavily pushed by the medical and psychiatric communities as LSD and MDMA.

We’re still waiting on legal weed in our neck of the woods. 

2022 Crypto/Tech Odds

Most Expensive NFT Sold At Auction In 2022

  • Under 69.3 million USD -350
  • Over 69.3 million USD +225

What a bunch of monkey business!

Just kidding. We love NFTs. 

Most Expensive NFT Created By Beeple Sold At Auction In 2022

  • Under 69.3 million USD -350
  • Over 69.3 million USD +225

Apparently, this Beeple guy is the ultimate NFT ape.

Will Bitcoin reach $100,000 in 2022?

  • No -260
  • Yes +175

This is unlikely but not impossible. At its all-time high, Bitcoin was up almost 500% in 2021 year-over-year, so a 100% gain during all of 2022 isn’t out of the question.

And just imagine what’ll happen to your Cardano if the tide rises that much!

Will Apple release an augmented reality (AR) or virtual reality (VR) headset in 2022?

  • Yes -300
  • No +200

Probably not, but maybe?

Most analysts believe this thing will hit in late 2022 or early 2023.

If it’s made to be an iPhone counterpart first and foremost, expect it to launch this year. If it’s supposed to support Apple iMacs, Apple MacBooks, or Apple TV devices, early 2023 is the better bet.

We’re thinking the latter, as is Bloomberg.

2022 Terrible Hollywood Movie Odds

Opening Weekend At Domestic Box Office: Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

  • Under 190 million USD -125
  • Over 190 million USD -115

Take the over forever.

Opening Weekend At Domestic Box Office: Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness

  • Over 175 million USD -120
  • Under 175 million USD -120

Under. We still need to see the first one. And is Sherlock even popular anymore?

Opening Weekend At Domestic Box Office – Jurassic World: Dominion

  • Over 165 million USD -140
  • Under 165 million USD +100

No idea. We can’t even believe Chris Pratt is still getting A-list work after coming out as a gun-toting conservative.  

Opening Weekend At Domestic Box Office – The Batman

  • Over 150 million USD -125
  • Under 150 million USD -115

Take the under. This thing’s probably going to be streamed for free on HBO Max at the same time it’s released in theaters.

What Movie-to-Musical will have a New York Broadway opening first?

  • The Devil Wears Prada -200
  • Some Like It Hot +200
  • 13 Going On 30 +550
  • Bull Durham +550

WAT

Will the next James Bond actor be female?

  • No -5000
  • Yes +1000

Presumably, any new actor to take the leading protagonist role in the next James Bond movie wouldn’t play Bond himself.

The lead may indeed be a female, but they’d be playing the role of “007” rather than Bond. In other words, Bond would retire, and a new agent would fill his Swiss Army shoes.

We don’t know what such a contingency would mean for this bet.

Caveat emptor, Ms. Bond.

2022 Coronavirus Odds

Will both starting NFL QBs for the conference championship winners be active for the Super Bowl?

  • Yes -5000
  • No +1000

Not even if they were literally dying from COVID.

Will either team’s head coach miss the Super Bowl?

  • No -10000
  • Yes +1600

Probably not. Again, the NFL has completely gutted its arbitrary COVID protocols to prevent exactly this kind of thing.

Will the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games be cancelled?

  • No -10000
  • Yes +1600

Not a chance.

Will Australia fully boycott the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics?

  • No -3500
  • Yes +900

Probably not. However, the country has gone completely insane with fear over the last year or so. Just ask the Djoker. 

Will Brazil fully boycott the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics?

  • No -5000
  • Yes +1000

It’s weird to see “Brazil” and “Winter Olympics” in the same sentence. But no, of course they won’t be boycotting the Winter Games.

2022 Miscellaneous Odds For Things We Never Heard Of

Will the Eleven Madison Park menu be vegan for all of 2022?

  • Yes -300
  • No +200

According to Google, “Eleven Madison Park is a fine dining restaurant located in the heart of New York City” that serves “upscale American tasting menus from chef Daniel Humm served in a high-ceilinged art deco space” yada yada yada.

Apparently, they currently have an all-vegan menu because – according to Humm, “The current food system is simply not sustainable, in so many ways.”

This is an interesting if scientifically illiterate hot take that will probably be trendy for a few months before Humm realizes catering to a bunch of penniless hippies is the leading cause of financial ruin in America.  

Of course, the publicity stunt worked, because you can bet on this nonsense with a legitimate international sportsbook.

Will the Grand Egyptian Museum be opened to the public in 2022?

  • Yes -300
  • No +300

The so-called Giza Museum in Cairo, Egypt, has been under construction since 2012 and has cost upwards of a billion dollars so far.

The grand opening has been pushed back several times since 2018, first because of a fire and then twice more due to COVID.

We’re guessing that it won’t open this year, but we don’t know or care.
