Singer Justin Bieber made girlfriend Hailey Baldwin his No. 1 Belieber, but oddsmakers are a bit skeptical the newly engaged couple will get married. MyBookie.ag posted lines on any potential nuptials, as well as a couple of prop bets.
The window is short to get a wager in at the internet sportsbook. The cutoff is Monday, though those five days might be a longer time than some celebrity marriages.
The first bet is will the couple wed before the end of 2018. Though no one knows when the two lovebirds will tie the knot, MyBookie has the yes at -200, and the no at +150.
The two have had an on-again, off-again romance, and rekindled the relationship a month ago. The engagement was a bit of a surprise, so oddsmakers are thinking the two want to cement this blessed union before the end of the year.
Long Engagement Ahead?
The 24-year-old pop star finished a world tour in 2017, and has no plans at the moment to go out on the road in 2018, or 2019, but if he does that would potentially delay any ceremony. Bettors believing the engagement gets stretched out and they don’t get married until after 2018 get +150 odds, while the no is the favorite at -200.
The couple offered no hints on when the wedding might occur, but did post sappy messages after the proposal happened over the weekend in the Bahamas.
“My heart is COMPLETELY and FULLY YOURS and I will ALWAYS put you first!” Bieber posted on his Instagram account. “You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn’t want to spend it with anybody else. You make me so much better and we compliment each other so well!! Can’t wait for the best season of life yet!”
Baldwin, who is the daughter of actor Steven Baldwin, chose Twitter to announce the news.
“Not sure what I did in life to deserve such happiness but I am so utterly grateful to God for giving me such an incredible person to share my life with! No words could ever express my gratitude,” Baldwin tweeted.
Details Slim, but Bets Available
An eager public of tweeners are thirsting for everything regarding a Bieber-Baldwin wedding. MyBookie posted a couple speculative prop bets.
The first is on who will be Bieber’s best man. The favorite is Ryan Butler, who has been the singer’s best friend since the two were seven-years-old. The aspiring filmmaker is at +100. Bieber’s agent, Scooter Braun is at +300, as is singer Usher. Want to take a chance on a longshot? Former friend and boxer Floyd Mayweather is +2000.
Baldwin, 21, has to pick a maid of honor and the smart money is on Kendall Jenner at -200. Model Bella Hadid is next at +200. Former Bieber girlfriend Selena Gomez is at +5000.
Gomez is also the subject of the final prop bet on whether she will attend the wedding. The yes is +350, while the no is -500. She was seen shortly after the engagement news wearing a t-shirt that read, “only the strong survive.” Chances are she will have other plans.
