Apprentice betting offers, reviews & tips
Apprentice Betting Sites
Betting on The Apprentice has become very popular, with the BBC TV show having been on our screens for 13 years and counting in the United Kingdom.
A succession of The Apprentice winners have gone on to work for Lord Alan Sugar or alternatively they have launched their businesses with his backing and the 2018 winner will be no different, with Apprentice odds always giving an indication of who this is likely to be.
Like with Great British Bake Off betting, this show is pre-recorded in advance which means that many people behind the scenes know the actual winner of the show including the winner themselves. However, it doesn’t prevent the bookmakers from offering TV betting markets on The Apprentice 2017 and The Apprentice 2018.
How to bet on The Apprentice
As soon as the latest series of The Apprentice starts, there are several bookmakers who will look to create betting markets for the popular TV show. This includes the winner of the show who will aim to survive the boardroom every week before getting a chance to pitch their business idea to Lord Sugar and his trusted associated.
Betting on the winner of The Apprentice tends to be a win-only market rather than each-way, with the odds not particularly competitive but they at least allow viewers the chance to place small stakes bets on the outcome of the show and they can back their favourite contestant.
Ultimately, Lord Sugar will go for the candidate who not only proves himself or herself in the various teams but can also demonstrate a winning business idea which will make a profit very quickly. Sometimes a strong candidate ultimately doesn’t have the killer idea required to land the prize.
Bet on The Apprentice Candidate to be Fired
Every week, we see at least one candidate fired in The Apprentice. Sometimes we get the treat of seeing more than one fired, especially after a bad week where a team has fared badly and Lord Sugar considers that there are at least two candidates who aren’t deserving of being in the process any longer.
There have been the odd occasions where Lord Sugar will fire as many as three candidates, although for betting purposes, it generally comes down to which person will be fired in the boardroom in that particular week and it’s usually the weakest candidate who is the first to bite the bullet.
It can make for tremendous viewing when you bet on a contestant to be fired next and they end up in the losing team before being selected to return to the boardroom as part of the unlucky trio. It just comes down to whether Lord Sugar will point a finger in their direction and give them the bad news.
The Apprentice UK betting markets
Sometimes you can get the chance to bet on Top Man or Top Woman when it comes to The Apprentice UK, with odds available about a particular contestant winning this market and they don’t have to win the overall process to be successful on this market.
The early episodes when it comes to the latest series of The Apprentice generally involves the two teams racing around trying to make money against a deadline and given some difficult instructions which leads to arguments and disagreements over the best plan of action.
Many candidates trip over themselves in a panic to try and win a task, while conflicts are a regular occurrence although it’s worth noting that Lord Sugar will often keep a troublemaker in the show for viewing purposes. After all, the BBC don’t want the candidates to be bland or very good at doing business.
Free Bets on the Apprentice
Many bookmakers offer a welcome bonus when you first sign up and this can be used for any The Apprentice betting markets should you find any available for that particular week.
Apprentice betting will only be available when the show is actually on our TV screens, with bookmakers sporadically adding up some markets to show their array of betting propositions although punters shouldn’t expect to get much money away at any of the odds.
The bookmakers are fully aware that the show is pre-recorded and will therefore limit any stake to small amounts as they don’t want to be paying out on virtual certainties given that several people already have access to the overall winner.
Indeed, it’s common for a leak to occur when it comes to a television show like The Apprentice and the bookmakers will be very aware of the overall winner.
