From the moment that David Letterman announced that he was retiring from his record-setting stint as the host of the Late Show, people have been speculating about what this could mean, us included. Will this be Jon Stewart’s chance? Or perhaps this is the time for a woman to take over the world of late night?

But as much as we can speculate, nobody at this point has much to go on. Turning to the professionals, we let the oddsmakers at Brovada tell us who they think will replace Letterman as host of the Late Show. Here are the odds they gave us:

Stephen Colbert: 3/1
