Hardy Boy Red Hot Favourite To Replace Daniel Craig As 007

Punters are starting to believe that Tom Hardy is the perfect replacement for Daniel Craig after he hangs up his shoes as James Bond and have backed Hardy into the clear 2/1 favourite to replace Craig.

Hardy had been the subject of support last week and was backed into 3/1 joint favourite from 6/1 alongside Idris Elba and Damian Lewis but following further support he is now the clear 2/1 favourite to become the next 007.

Idris Elba remains 3/1 with Damian Lewis eased slightly to 7/2 from 3/1. Other contenders at the top of the market are Henry Cavil at 4/1 and German–Irish actor, Michael Fassbender at 6/1. Christian Bale, who played Batman, is an outsider at 50/1 with Ewan McGregor currently a 66/1 shot.

With David Beckham now looking for a new venture, BoyleSports has introduced the former LA Galaxy and Manchester United player at 250/1 to take over from Daniel Craig.

Following on from the support for Tom Hardy to take over from Daniel Craig as 007, BoyleSports can report that the gamble hasn’t dried up and punters believe that the deal may be signed sealed and delivered as there is no sign of the plunge coming to a halt.

Despite Tom Hardy shortening into 2/1, and now the clear favourite, he continues to attract support.

At this stage he is a five figure loser for the firm with not even David Beckham able to take on Tom Hardy at his rather attractive 250/1 price.
