Where To Bet The Nobel Prize


You really can bet on anything and that includes who is going to win a Nobel Prize.

There are 5 separate Nobel Prizes which are awarded and generally online sportsbooks will allow you to bet on the most mainstream one, which is the Nobel Peace Prize. I’ve also seen odds for the Literature prize too.

While Nobel will inform people of how many candidates there is for a particular prize, there is no shortlist or anything like that so the online sportsbooks – and yourself – have to take a guess at the potential contenders.

I’ll cover where to bet the Nobel Peace Prize as well as talk about the betting history for it.

Where To Bet the Nobel Prize:

America: The best sportsbook to bet the Nobel Peace Prize is BetOnline who will usually have odds up a few weeks prior to the event.

In 2020 for example, the prize was awarded on the 9th of October. BetOnline had betting odds up approximately one month prior.

They did not have any other odds up except for the Nobel Peace Prize. It’s not really a surprise. At BetOnline you can bet on the Grammy’s, hot dog eating contests and simulated video games. Why not the Nobel Peace Prize too?

Everyone Else: You can bet the Nobel Peace Prize all year long at Mr Green. You can find it under the TV & Novelty Category. They update the list as the year progresses.

What Nobel Prize Bets Are Available?

As mentioned, the only Nobel Prize I’ve ever seen odds for is the Nobel Peace Prize.

It’s a pretty simple betting option – bet on who will win it.

A variety of celebrities and groups and political figures will be listed for the Nobel Peace Prize and you choose to bet on who you think will win it.

For 2021 for example, betting options include the WHO, Greta Thunberg, Alexei Navalny and Bill Gates.

Can you bet on anything other than the Noble Peace Prize?

Yes. Some sportsbooks have offered the Nobel Literature Prize. Ladbrokes were one sportsbook that had odds for it in the past.

What are the odds for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize?

The current favourites in March 2021 were:

  1. World Health Organization: +275
  2. Greta Thunberg: +400
  3. Alexei Navalny: +450
  4. Black Lives Matter: +600
  5. Jacinda Ardern: +750

What were the historical odds for the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize?

Obviously it changed a lot throughout the year. Early in 2020 in March, Greta Thunberg was the favourite at -130 odds. Behind her was Jacinda Ardern at +170, then we have to go all the way down to the third favourite, Reporters Without Borders, at +700.

THat changed with the WHO becoming the favourite at +200 odds closer to the ceremony, and Greta Thunberg moved out to +400. Black Lives Matter moved up there too. As it is, the World Food Programme won. I don’t even believe you could bet on them.

How to Bet Nobel Prizes

BetOnline: You will find it under “Other Sports” in the “Entertainment” section of the website.

Mr Green: You will find it under the “TV & Novelty” section listed under “Global”.

Both sportsbooks work similar – click on the bet you want and it is added to your bet slip then you place the bet.

Nobel Prize Betting Strategy:

I honestly have no idea haha. I’ve looked at previous prizes to see if I could figure it out but I really can’t. Only thing I would suggest is stay away from anything American-centric. Also look into categories such as human rights, international diplomacy and the climate. Those seem to be the categories that work recently.
