Time Magazine Person of the Year 2017 Odds At BetOnline

We are here today to get to this thing called the Time Magazine Person of the Year 2017 award, and if you ever thought that you wouldn’t see Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-un and Bashar al Assad on the same list as Pope Francis, Tom Brady, Daenerys Targaryen and The White Helmets, then you were dead wrong. This fun props market from creative sportsbook BetOnline may have some hidden value.

Last year, Time named current Trump with its coveted Time Person of the Year award, so with no back-to-back winners since the inception of the award in 1927 when US aviator Charles Lindbergh nabbed the honors, and with the U.S. president's approval ratings hitting a new low of late, backing someone other than 45 may be a good idea, although backing any of these world politicians, the heaviest chalks in this freaky market, seems really goofy at this particular point in our history with Weather, War and Water dominating the headlines.

Here are the current odds for the Time (Magazine) Person of the Year award in odds and alphabetical order with some potentially deserving candidates like Arizona Senator John McCain, TV talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, musical artists Jay Z and Beyoncé as well all of the brave First Responders who dealt with three incredibly destructive Hurricanes as well as a number of major human tragedies in the US through a testing and still evolving 2017.

Who Might be the Best Value Pick?

Macron, 39, became the youngest President in the history of France and is a logical and safe choice for to win in this market, which often seems to zigzag from politicians to cultural things and people who made a difference on a purely human level. Some politicians besides Trump, Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, European Commission President and Luxembourgish politician Jean-Claude Juncker, former Secretary of NATO Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte, the first Mindanaoan to ever hold that office.

For me, with Time having already honored (2013) a progressive Pope (Francis) who has spoken out on Women’s Rights, Climate Change and is hip to UFOs, The White Helmets would be a wonderful and deserving choice, and, at 16-to-1 odds, have some perceived value. Like their fellow First Responders who run straight into the face of danger and death to perform search and rescue operations, The White Helmets -- founded by British mercenary James Le Mesurier and headed by Raed Saleh -- have been performing dangerous search and rescue missions after bombings during the Syrian Civil War in Syria and Turkey. The 3,000+ volunteers of this 3-year-old Non-Profit organization -- who have seen 159 of their own killed during their perilous and angelic work which covers 15 Civil Defense tasks laid out by international Humanitarian Law -- do all of their work on a $70 million budget and live by the very worthy motto, “To save a life is to save all of humanity.”
