Oddsmakers favor Stephen Colbert to replace David Letterman

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
Craig Ferguson: 7/2
Chelsea Handler: 5/1
Conan O’Brien: 6/1
Jon Stewart: 7/1
Jerry Seinfeld: 9/1
Neil Patrick Harris: 15/1
Louis C.K.: 15/1
Chris Rock: 20/1
Tina Fey: 33/1
Ellen DeGeneres: 33/1
Howard Stern: 40/1
Alec Baldwin: 40/1
Jay Leno: 50/1

Who will die by the end of 'Breaking Bad'? An oddsmaker gives his take

After the ending of last week’s Breaking Bad episode, things aren’t exactly looking good for some of our favorite characters. Hank, considering he just had what could very easily be his final conversation with Marie, could be on his way out, and let’s not forget that Todd’s uncle originally brought his boys out to kill Jesse. And then there’s the fact that Walt’s cancer is back. So with only three episodes left, is anyone going to make it out of New Mexico alive?

The short answer is: We have no idea, which is why we turned to someone who has a little bit more experience with odds than we do. Kevin Bradley, a sportsbook manager for Bovada, is a huge fan of the show and was willing to take the time to give us what he believes are the hypothetical odds that Walt, Jesse, Skyler, Saul, and Hank will die before the series ends:
