People like to bet a lot! Betting has always been one of the most favourite and most popular ways of entertaining. There are so many things you can bet on. Some people bet on football or some other sport and others bet on a baby due date or the weather. It is only important to bet and win the bet. When someone wins the bet, they feel powerful and somehow special because they were able to predict the odds.
So what can you bet on? People have been imaginative and creative when it comes to betting, so let us explore, in the following paragraphs, the top seven bizarre things people can bet on and win.
NUMBER ONE: CELEBRITY DEATH POOLS
It seems morbid and bizarre but celebrity death pools do exist, they are as real as football betting pools. Choose a celebrity and bet on his or her death date. The only thing you can do is to wait, longer or shorter, depending on the celebrity in question. You can play for points and win a prize. How bizarre can it get?
NUMBER TWO: CARRYING WIVES
The sport of wife-carrying exists in Ireland. It is a sport when a man is carrying a woman which does not have to be his wife. He carries her down an obstacle course, 253 meters long. The couple who reaches the finish line the first is the winner. It resembles horse racing, doesn’t it? Maybe, although some would disagree. Anyhow, you can bet on your favourite couple, if they win, you win too!
NUMBER THREE: ROYALS AND THEIR WEDDINGS
Whether you love the royal family or not, you cannot be unfamiliar with the events surrounding them. For those who are into royals and their weddings, betting companies have offered bets.

You just need to place your bet and wait for them to get pregnant!
