Harry and Megan are expecting their second child and multiple major sportsbooks weigh in with several fun prop bets to bet on. In this space, we review the markets and serve up some light-hearted predictions.
Two years after welcoming their first baby Archie, the breakaway Royals are expecting their second child. Having already made the gender reveal (a girl) – during the controversial Oprah Winfrey interview that sent seismic shockwaves across the United Kingdom and the world for that matter, by some of the incendiary allegations levied against the Royal Family – oddsmakers are focusing on all other things related to the arrival of baby Sussex No.2.
For those even loosely interested in betting on the blessed event, they can find a slew of prop bets. As per BetOnline sportsbook (visit our BetOnline Review), bettors can bet on a whole slew of random aspects: from the date of birth to the weight of the baby, her name and more.
BetOnline Sportsbook Royal Family Odds
1. Harry/Meghan Baby’s Date of Birth
- June 11th or Later -120
- On or Before June 10th -120
Meghan Markle was absent from Prince Philip’s funeral, The official line explaining her absence was that it was on doctor’s orders due to her pregnancy. This therefore might suggest that at the time of the Royal family’s bereavement Meghan was at the very least 7 months pregnant. (It’s common to discourage travel after the seventh month.) Thus, oddsmakers quite sensibly tip the date of baby No.2’s arrival at around June 10th, which is just under two months since Prince Philip’s funeral on April 17, 2021.
2. Which day will baby be born?
- Friday +500
- Monday +500
- Saturday +500
- Sunday +500
- Thursday +500
- Tuesday +500
- Wednesday +500
Another prop bet to spot in the betting on the Sussexes is the actual day of the week baby No.2 will arrive. All the days are set to the exact same betting odds, meaning there’s no advantage either way. However, perhaps, Thursday June 10th or Friday June 11th – the two days identified in the aforementioned market, which was divided between the baby’s arrival on or before June 10th and on or after June 11th – may prove the most popular bets. Baby Archie was born on Monday, May 6, 2019.
3. Harry/Meghan Baby Weight
- Under 7lbs, 6oz -130
- Exactly 7lbs, 6oz or more -110
Baby Archie highly anticipated arrival into the world came at 5.26am on Monday the 6th May, 2019. The bundle of joy weighed 7lbs. 3oz according to reports at the time. The average weight for a baby according to various expert sources is 7Ibs, 5oz, but anything between 5Ibs, 5oz and 10Ibs is considered normal. As well, typically boys tend to weigh more than girls, and first babies are usually lighter than later siblings. As such, oddsmakers have rolled out odds in and around that scale but given all the considerations the UNDER 7ibs, 6oz is the favored betting pick.
