Todrick Hall A Clear Favorite
Making multiple alliances, being friendly with everyone and working the charm on every other competitor, Todrick Hall quickly positioned himself as the house guest to beat in the early episodes of Celebrity Big Brother S3.
The singer, songwriter and choreographer has an early advantage (alongside Carson Kressley), as he clearly has pre-existing connections with many people in the house. It was “raining alliances,” according to Hall, and most of them were being instigated by him.
Best Value Bet: Chris Kirkpatrick?
Alongside Hall, NSYNC icon Chris Kirkpatrick was revealed as a Big Brother superfan early on in this season. While knowledge of the show can only carry you so far, Kirkpatrick has shown he can be a solid player and use his experience with the format to slide into some key alliances.
Kirkpatrick has already discussed becoming a team with Todrick Hall, and he could hide behind the shadow of the early favorite for long enough to make a deep run in the game.
Don’t Sleep On Carson Kressley
Former Queer Eye for the Straight Guy star Carson Kressley clearly came to play. He was connecting with everyone quickly, clearly had some pre-existing relationships and attempted to form an early alliance with some of the other members.
Kressley got put on the block early with an eviction nomination, but if he can stay alive past this first vote, the +900 value could be too good to pass up. Maybe Kressley can follow in the footsteps of former Sportsbook and fellow Drag Race judge Ross Mathews?
How To Bet On Celebrity Big Brother Odds Futures
Like any futures bets, Celebrity Big Brother odds and futures are long-term bets on the Sportsbook of a given season, in this case, Celebrity Big Brother Season 3. The favorite is the player with the lowest odds (sometimes a minus number), while the higher the odds means the lower the chances to win — as determined by Sportsbook.
If a player has +125 odds to win, a $100 wager on that player would profit $125 if they were to win it all and remain as the final house guest. You would get your original $100 back plus your winnings of $125.
If you’re betting on a long shot, with odds as high as +30000, a $100 wager would pay $30,000. Yes, their odds to win are essentially slim to none, but if you’re right, the payout would be massive.
