As seems to be the case with every type of competition that begins to garner attention, Drone Racing is the newest entry to the list for bookmakers to host bets with. Online bookmaker Pinnacle says that it is the first to offer the odds to bet on drone racing with the upcoming World Drone Racing Championships in about a week and a half. Currently, prominent teen pilot Luke Bannister is the favorite to win with odds of 1.862 : 1.
Since the sport is still relatively new, there is no way to accurately estimate the total number of wagers until after their first event, according to their Marketing Director Harry Lang. Because of this, the outright bet limit for the event is $100. Despite the hesitance to fly headfirst into the scene, they are very excited to get on board while the sport is still in its initial growth stage.
“As the old saying goes, ‘if you can see a bandwagon, you’ve probably missed it,’” says Lang. “Drone racing looks like a sport that could take off, we have the talent in the trading teams to set the lines, so why not pave the way?”
