Michael Jordan ‘The Last Dance’ Documentary Odds

Michael Jordan 'The Last Dance' Odds

ESPN’s 10-part documentary “The Last Dance,” which follows the Michael Jordan-led 1997-98 Chicago Bulls, has finally arrived. With episode 1 airing on April 19, odds are out for what’s going to transpire in the long-awaited series.

SportsBetting.ag has released a litany of prop specials for the debut episode, which are highlighted below. For a full breakdown of the Bulls’ ATS and futures odds from that iconic season, check out Gilles Gallant’s article.

Is ‘The Last Dance’ Emmy-Worthy?

Will ‘The Last Dance’ win an Emmy Award in 2020?
OptionOdds
YES+300
NO-500

According to sportsbooks, don’t expect this documentary to win the hardware any time soon. The -500 price for “The Last Dance” to not win an Emmy is telling and speaks to the stiff competition from the TV academy.

If any major sports TV network knows how to properly produce documentaries, however, it’s ESPN. Created in 2009 by Bill Simmons, Connor Schell and John Dahl, the sports documentary series 30 for 30 has made 157 episodes to this day with more on the way. The series has been nominated for the Emmys three times (2011, 2017 and 2019) but has never won.

Will MJ Cry?

Will Michael Jordan cry?
OptionOdds
YES-120
NO-120

Despite his status as a legendary athlete, Jordan has become the subject of some light internet ridicule over the years due to the widespread “crying Jordan” meme. So, will Jordan shed more tears in “The Last Dance” and potentially create another internet phenomenon? Oddsmakers have the line set for both sides at -120.

My money is on the NO option for one reason: Jordan has already done his part to get ahead of the meme.

At Kobe Bryant’s funeral on February 24, Jordan brought some light to the Staples Center by making a self-aware joke, saying “Now I’m going to have to look at another crying meme for the next… I told my wife I wasn’t going to do this because I didn’t want to see it for the next three or four years. That is what Kobe Bryant does to me.”

What About Gambling?

Will ‘gambling’ be said?
OptionOdds
YES-200
NO+150

Jordan’s love of gambling is no secret, and it’s clear the sportsbook is expecting this topic to be addressed – either by Jordan himself or someone else. Jordan never believed in anybody more than himself, and His Airness was certainly not shy about putting that confidence to work in the gambling world.

If this documentary had come out 10 years ago, I would say NO is the safest bet. But with sports betting emerging from the shadows and becoming a mainstream exercise in the United States over the past few years, it wouldn’t be surprising whatsoever to hear the word “gambling” be said.
