The 2021 Booker Prize winner will be announced tomorrow, so the time to place bets or make predictions is winding down.
The prize website itself shared two oddsmakers’ predictions, along with links to actually place bets. (This surprised us, honestly … )
The specific odds are on the Booker Prize website; each oddsmaker has a slightly different margin.
The Guardian, meanwhile, shared Ladbrokes’s odds, which differed from Smarkets and OLBG only in that Great Circle had a slight edge over No One is Talking About This.
And it also added this observation from a Smarkets employee: “The betting markets hadn’t had a very good record of predicting the winner until a few years ago, but the favourites have tended to do better recently.”
We'll find out tomorrow!
