TV Specials Betting with William Hill
There ain’t no business like show business and show business is very much a business that William Hill knows.
Whether it’s the annual enquiry to find out if Britain has talent or when rhythmically-challenged celebrities strictly go dancing, the number of TV and TV specials odds that William Hill offers is enough to fill a studio audience.
From Game of Thrones to Eurovision, from the next James Bond to the next Pope, William Hill’s TV and specials odds are star-studded. Ready for your bumper guide to TV/specials betting? Let’s get this show on the road.
So let’s begin by explaining exactly what William Hill offers TV specials betting on before we dive into the kinds of bets that you can make. Reality television steals the limelight here - The X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent, Strictly Come Dancing, I’m A Celeb…, Dancing on Ice, Big Brother, Celebrity Big Brother, The Voice, The Greatest Dancer, Love Island; whichever your poison, you’ll find the latest odds at William Hill.
Next up comes the silver screen. Our film betting is based around the awards calendar, so when the Oscars, BAFTAs, Golden Globes, and more roll around, that’s also when you’ll find our odds.
Our awards betting applies to television as well - stay tuned to when it’s time to crown winners of the Emmy and National Television Awards.
Next on the agenda are the specials. These come in all shapes and sizes - things like the next James Bond, the next Pope, and the name and gender of the next Royal Baby are all markets that you can bet on.
BBC Sports Personality of the Year, temperature specials, Christmas number one - there are always some amazing TV/specials betting odds available at William Hill, just drop by and see what’s on the programme.
Finally, our TV/specials odds are up to you as much as they’re up to us. If you’re wanting a price for a special bet or if you can't find the market you want listed on our site, then please tweet us @WilliamHill, or contact our 24/7 Customer Service Team to request a price. Send us your craziest ideas - we can’t promise that they’ll all be made available, but we’re curious to know what you come up with anyway.
And that’s your run through of TV/specials betting at William Hill. Basically, the bottom line is that when it comes to TV and specials betting, William Hill runs the show. Now let’s discuss exactly the kinds of bets that you can make.
Break a leg
To demonstrate the kind of variety available on TV/special betting odds at William Hill, let’s use Eurovision as an example.
The immediately obvious bet that you can make here is an outright winner of the whole competition, but because William Hill are all singing and all dancing in the TV/specials betting world, we offer a whole lot more than that.
So for Eurovision specifically, here’s what you can bet on:
- Outright winner - as explained above, back a country to be the overall winner.
- Semi-final winner - another one that’s self-explanatory, back a country to win the semi-final.
- Finishing position of a specific country - choose whichever country you like and bet on where you think they’ll finish overall.
- Maximum points for a specific country - when it comes to voting, you can bet on whether any country will award maximum points to another specific country.
- Nil points - predict whether a specific country will walk away from the finals without a single point to their name.
- Semi-final qualification - predict whether or not a specific country will qualify for the final.
So, that’s a whole lot more than just ‘overall winner’. William Hill takes TV and TV specials betting very seriously - we want to match the commitment that superfans show with the latest and best TV and TV specials betting odds around.
The show goes on
For reality TV shows like Big Brother and The X Factor, on top of overall winner betting you can find odds on the lines of:
- Top male
- Top female
- Winning judge/team
- Next eviction
- And more
When it comes to Christmas you’ll be able to bet on whether it will snow or not, which song will be Christmas number one, and which show will be the most viewed on Christmas Day.
When it starts getting really hot or cold out there, you’ll be able to bet on whether certain cities will reach a certain temperature.
Finally, as we said before, it’s almost ‘anything goes’ when it comes to TV and TV specials odds. Next James Bond, next Batman, next Pope, next I’m A Celeb… judge, what time the next Royal Baby will arrive and how much it will weigh - the only limit is our imagination and William Hill has a very active one.
Make sure to follow your favourite shows and events on news.williamhill.com for the latest TV/special betting odds and betting tips.
Due to the sheer variety and number of odds that William Hill offers on TV and TV special betting, it’s almost impossible to suggest exact tv/specials betting tips that apply to everything.
When it comes to talent shows like The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent, keep an eye out on who is trending on social media and is getting the most positive coverage online. Remember, the ultimate judge on these shows is the public, so it’s key to be tapped into the discussion before you start backing a winner.
If you’re betting on these shows then you’re likely a fan already, so you’re in a great place to start your TV betting.
For TV/specials betting odds on the next actor or actress to play a character - like James Bond or Batman, as examples - it’s not always wise to bet on who you like the most or think will be the best.
You need to consider the wider implications of hiring certain people - have they featured in the series before? Have they starred in a ‘rival’ franchise that would stop them from joining?
Hollywood’s a fickle place and surprises happen every day. It’s bad news for producers, but great news for bettors.
For our final tip, we’ll remind you that this is just a bit of fun. TV/special betting odds are yet another option for our favourite William Hill customers (that’s all of you) and novelty bets inject some silliness into proceedings.
TV/specials betting can also introduce a little excitement in the more mundane goings on in life. Not fussed about the next Pope or Royal Baby? Betting on it gets you a bit more involved and interested in the outcome.
