I’m saving my money. Football season is upon us, and I need money for fantasy football leagues, daily fantasy, and NFL/NCAA spreads. I usually bet $50-$100 each week during the football season. Futures bets are also fun… but I found one that’s intriguing… and it has nothing to do with football: Who will be Kim Kardashian’s next boyfriend.
The 41-year-old reality star is single again after recently dumping Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson. I thought the prop bet was a joke, but it’s a legit bet on Odds Shark. The casino’s favorite for Kim’s affection is Civil Rights activist Van Jones. He’s an attractive 54-year-old man, best known for his nightly commentary on CNN. They’ve been photographed together in the past, ever since Kardashian became politically active and helped in the release of over a dozen federal prisoners.
Kim’s ex, Pete Davidson is coming in at 9-to-1 odds. Another ex, Ray J (from the infamous sex tape) has 10-to-1 odds. Mariah Carey’s ex-husband, actor Nick Cannon also has 10-to-1 odds. Not sure if Kim wants to deal with all 8 of his kids, though!
The value bets I like the most; however, are Jamie Foxx (+1200), Drake (+3000) and actor Michael B. Jordan (+3300). I wouldn’t mind taking a flier on Kim going back to her crazy genius ex-husband, Kanye West (+2200).
I hope Kim Kardashian chooses Foxx, Drake, or Jordan. Their children would be beautiful! Though, I think oddsmakers know what they are doing when naming Van Jones the favorite. It makes sense. Then again, who would have though she’d have interest in Pete Davidson, for crying out loud?
I have no interest in watching her reality show, “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” but I do have an interest in making money.
It’s a degenerate play, for sure. But it’s a fun one that my wife might find fun too!
