Friends Reunion Betting Odds: What Will Happen in TV Event of the Year
A lot of people were willing to bet that a ‘Friends’ reunion would never happen.
But despite over a year’s worth of production and COVID-related delays, HBO Max is set to release ‘Friends: The Reunion’ on Thursday, May 27.
‘Friends: The Reunion’ will not be an episode of ‘Friends’. Instead, it is a 75-minute event featuring interviews with the cast and “rare behind-the-scenes footage” from prior filming. Originally, the special was supposed to be filmed over two days in March 2020. However, the coronavirus pandemic forced the project to be put on hold.
Global oddsmaker Raphael Esparza, who is also a professional handicapper for Doc’s Sports Service, has released odds on the upcoming event. Entertainment-related betting is a growing field in the sportsbook industry and Esparza feels that the massive amount of attention being given to the Friends reunion special makes it a perfect prompt for betting action.
“This thing is going to have a huge audience,” Esparza said. “This is just another way that people can enjoy watching the show. Or it is a way to lure in some people that maybe weren’t as excited to watch it because they have a friendly wager with their buddy.”
Esparza has released odds on everything from the Emmys and Oscars to the size of the opening week box office numbers for movies like ‘Avengers: Endgame’.
“Basically, a lot of people’s significant others are going to want to watch this while those people’s boyfriends or girlfriends don’t care. Now those people that don’t care might have a reason to sit down with their girlfriend or boyfriend and watch the show,” Esparza added.
