This is the next time that Bangkok has hosted the Miss Universe Pageant. In 1965 and 1988, this year’s host country of Thailand won the coveted crown. They are seeking to capture the Miss Universe crown for a third period, but are facing some serious competition.
This 2018 list of entries has set an all time record as contestants from 94 distinct countries are expected to take part in the pageant. As you can imagine, with this many contestants, the betting field is quite large. Without further delay, let us analyze the Miss Universe betting odds, prop bets and also make some predictions.
2018 Miss Universe Prop Bets
After browsing through some of the top online betting sites, the following is a list of the most popular Miss Universe prop bets courtesy of MyBookie:
How Old Will the 2018 Miss Universe Be?
More than 23.5 years old (-120)
Under 23.5 years old (-120)
The initial two Miss Universe pageants (1952-53) crowned 17-year-old winners. Since that time, all of the winners have been 18 or older. The oldest contestant to win was 26 years old and that has been done twice: in 1997 since Brook Lee from the USA won and at 2015 when Pia Wurtzbach in the Philippines won.
In the 66 previous contest, we have the following breakdown of ages for winning contestants:
17 years old: 2 times
18 years old: 15 times 19 years old: 11 times 20 years old: 12 times 21 years old: 5 times
22 years old: 8 times
23 years old: 4 instances 24 years old: 4 instances 25 years old: 3 times
26 years old: 2 times
It should be noted that in 2002, the first ever Russian winner was finally dethroned. She was 24 years old and also the runner-up who was 23 years old took over as Miss Universe.
As you can see, the number of contestants 23 and under to win the pageant is far more different than 24 and elderly at nearly a 6-to-1 ratio (57 to 9). It wasn’t until 1961 (the 10th pageant) that somebody within 23 years old won the Miss Universe crown.
For this wager, I am really shocked that the Under of 23.5 doesn’t have larger odds considering the number of contestants 23 years old and under have won this pageant. If you add up each the ages to the winners and divide by the entire amount of pageants, you get a normal age of roughly 21.4 years of age.
However, since 2010, there have been 4 winners that were 24 years old and over.
Looking over the participants in this year’s contest, we have the following age breakdowns:
18 years old: 6 contestants
19 years old: 5 contestants
20 years old: 9 contestants
21 years old: 7 contestants
22 years old: 14 contestants
23 years old: 14 contestants
24 years old: 15 contestants
25 years old: 8 contestants
26 years old: 5 contestants
27 years old: 9 contestants
28 years old: 2 contestant
This year, we’ve 39 of those 94 contestants age 24 and above. That leaves us with 55 contestants age 23 and younger. 43 of those competitions are right in the 22 to 24 age category, which will be a fantastic reason why oddsmakers have the O/U at 23.5 years of age. The typical age for that year’s contestants is 22.8 years old.
With all of the data pointing towards the Beneath, I’m actually taking the Over for this wager and here is why:
According to BetOnline, the top five favorites are all 23 and elderly.
4 of the top 5 most Miss Universe betting favorites are 24 and above.
Even two of the other popular selections (Australia and Spain) are 24 and 27 years old.
With the average age of this season’s contestants only under 23 yrs old (22.8) and 6 of the top seven favorites being 24 and elderly, I’m carrying the Over 23.5 bet at -120 with this bet.
