James Corden departure prompts Betway into pricing up his replacement

Following the immense success he found in presenting The Late Late Show in America, James Corden has had his time almost entirely taken up across the pond. Attempting to break America as many Brits do has meant leaving other commitments behind, and it’s been the case for Sky One panel show A League Of Their Own, where Betway are pricing up potential replacements.

No other bookmaker is allowing odds on the next presenter of A League Of Their Own, making it an exclusive feature from Betway.

Team captain Freddie Flintoff favourite to present A League Of Their Own

It’s understandably assumed that the successor to James Corden will be someone who already works on the show, with all of Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff, Jamie Redknapp and Jack Whitehall looking like the best options if that truly is the case.

Standing with the shortest price, Andrew Flintoff is favourite on Betway at odds of 5/2. He comes as a surprise option after considering more natural presenters, but he has as much if not more experience of presenting, making him a shrewd choice to take on the role.

Past controversies make it difficult to believe that Freddie Flintoff would be put into the spotlight to such an extent, but he’s proven himself as being a trustworthy figure over recent years, and he’s definitely a likeable face in the eyes of the typical viewer.

Jamie Redknapp and Harry Redknapp in contention for the job

We’ve already briefly touched upon how Jamie Redknapp would be up for the task of replacing James Corden, but his dad could also be in the frame, adding extra genuine chemistry between those involved in the show as both Redknapps lock horns.

Handing the presenter role to Jamie Redknapp would be far more likely to happen after he already plays such an important part in the show, but bringing Harry in would make it a more watchable programme, as he proved by winning I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here 2018.

The opposing team captain on the other side of the studio, Jamie Redknapp is second favourite at odds of 11/4, followed by Harry Redknapp, who’s priced up at 4/1 to get the job ahead of his son.

Outsider options worth contemplating for A League Of Their Own presenter

There are often markets that don’t appear to make any sense. We see this with backing managers to take control of specific football clubs and players to move elsewhere, but it’s been a different situation with the A League Of Their Own odds, where all options have been perfectly believable.

Only marginally larger than the price given to Harry Redknapp’s chances of hosting A League Of Their Own, former Sky Sports News presenter Kirsty Gallacher would make sense at 5/1 depending on how serious they want to go with the new series of the show. Comedian Romesh Ranganathan is the next option at 6/1, where he regularly features as a guest and would come as a different route to Gallacher, instead making the show even funnier than it is currently.

Despite leaving the show at the start of 2018 with aspirations of reaching similar heights in America as James Corden, Jack Whitehall looks like a big price at 10/1, as he saw a lot of success from being a panelist on the show. It’s expected that he would be welcomed back with open arms if he was to return as the next presenter.

It was obviously difficult for Betway to make a decision over whether professional footballer Peter Crouch or Take Me Out presenter Paddy McGuinness stood a stronger chance of being given the role, resulting in them both being priced at 16/1, but the most shocking addition is controversial television personality and former Mirror editor Piers Morgan, who is the largest price at odds of 20/1.
