Bookmakers boast Beckham baby betting
With David and Victoria Beckham having announced that they are expecting their fourth child, Paddy Power are asking punters to predict the name of the newborn.
Sandra, the name of David’s mother, is the 10/1 favourite in this moniker market, while the name David itself is available at 12/1. Another notable is Edward/Ted – David’s father’s name – at 16/1.
Those fancying a religious reference might be interested in Noah at 25/1 while Summer – the expected season of the baby’s birth – is available at 33/1.
As is often the case with novelty markets, the more entertaining options are to be found nearer the bottom of the betting. A price of 50/1 can be snapped up on the couple naming their child Ferguson, presumably in honour of David’s former manager Sir Alex, while another nod to a Manchester United great comes in the form of the 66/1 offered on Charlton.
Even further down the list, Pele is available at 200/1, while the same odds are quoted for the child to be named after David’s former footballing rivals Chelsea.
