Episode 577 titled the Treehouse of Horrors will feature a ghoulish story to be sure but there are betting odds to be had if you want to make a little cash while watching your favorite TV show.
How Many Viewers Will Tune in to Watch?
Over 7.5 Million Viewers (-200)
Under 7.5 Million Viewers (+150)
The Simpsons used to routinely pull in tens of millions of viewers but that was a long time ago. Nevertheless, the cartoon parody of a yellow dysfunctional family continues to reel in millions after all these years which is why the gravy train keeps on a-chuggin’. Last season’s premier saw 8 ½ million viewers sit in front of their TV’s to watch the shenanigans unfold. But a year later will the audience tune in again?
The answer of course is an unequivocal yes! The show will never be the goliath it once was but that doesn’t mean the promise of Bart getting whacked somewhere down the road this season won’t keep eyeballs glued. The Bovada betting odds are heavily stacked that over 7 ½ million at least will watch and we believe laying -200 ain’t nothin’ but a money thang.
Pick: Over 7.5 million viewers (-200) at Bovada.
Will Sideshow Bob Succeed in Murdering Bart Simpson?
I think there is little doubt that the little bast-ahd will finally get what’s comin’. As a matter of fact one only has to listen to writer/producer Al Jean who revealed as much during a panel discussion at the ATX Festival in Austin.
"You're going to see Sideshow Bob do something he's wanted to do for a long time," Jean offered in an interview with Entertainment Weekly Radio.
Al Jean elucidated the audience even further, "I'm one of the people that always wanted the Coyote to eat the Roadrunner so you can see where this is going," Jean said. "When I was a kid, I wanted the rabbit to get the Trix... I hated frustration comedy so we'll scratch that itch on the Halloween special."
While Al Jean may be leading us down a bogus path I believe him and based on the -200 betting odds it appears Bovada believes him too!
Pick: Play Yes -200 at Bovada.
How will Sideshow Bob murder Bart Simpson?
-Death by falling from height +500
-Bart to kill Sideshow Bob +500
-Homer to save the day +500
-Shot by/out of a cannon +800
-Blow him up +800
-Lead Pipe +1000
-Hires or gets someone else to do it for him +1500
-Death by elephant +2000
-Death by rake +2000
Many ways to die for young Bart but we see this as personal. That’s right Sideshow Bob has been plotting his revenge for many years now and he won’t mind getting his hands dirty. In fact, he will enjoy every gurgling minute so we envision the little man fading to black with something around his neck…perhaps even Sideshow Bob’s hands!
Pick: Strangled +800 at Bovada.
Where will Sideshow Bob murder Bart Simpson?
-Simpson House +200
The last question posed is where will the dirty deed be done? I believe Sideshow Bob will want this to be mano a mano with no onlookers to spoil the party. Therefore outdoors in the wide open plains of Springfield it will not be but since this episode is titled Treehouse of Horrors than what better place to strangle Bart than in the treehouse? It all makes delicious sense and Sideshow Bob will finally exact his revenge!
Pick: Treehouse +500 at Bovada.
