The Sick World of “Who Will Die First” Bets

I had not planned on writing this report. No, I didn’t even know that you could bet on the mortality of both celebrities and public figures not using a sportsbook that is legitimate! Well, it ends up you definitely can, and thanks to the hilariously twisted souls behind setting the odds for MyBookie.ag, it’s more fun and less gloomy than you might think.
For years I’d heard people talking their passing pools on tv shows and around the workplace. Normally, they had been composed as a means to publicly predict that a celebrity would be dying soon (within the calendar year, in most cases), with small follow-through beyond the announcement.
I heard of a official death pool run and being organized by comedian Doug Stanhope — using a organized everything and site! But those choices pale compared to what is going on at MyBookie.ag — and I’m assuming other betting sites as well — at the moment.
Yes, “Death Matchups” Actually Exist!
First of all, the oddsmakers at MyBookie.ag are hilariously sick, which I will make abundantly apparent in later sections. Not only are they setting odds on if an wide selection of actors and public figures will die, but they also pair them into”passing matchups,” at which the follow-through picks that of two or more options will croak first.
It is the way the bookies opt to make these pairs that shines a light on their brilliance. For instance, preparing a head-to-head between Demi Lovato and Artie Lange is insensitive. These two have nothing in common outside of current hospitalizations and alcoholism dependence.
To reword the wager, it’s basically”which of both of these troubled celebrities will die of an overdose first?” Dark, huh?
Obviously, they never come out and say,”That is our heroin showdown,” that would probably be frowned upon. They simply set the lines and leave the remainder for you to find out. And while, the entire issue is pretty mean in today’s hyper-sensitive world; why shouldn’t we put our money where our mouth is?
It’s not like we are hypothesizing this sort of thing with coworkers and our friends all the time. This only raises the stakes somewhat. Makes your “I told you so” a smidgen more rewarding.
