Yes! Well, kinda. Do you want to bet onJustin Timberlake’s next album selling more records than Rihanna’s? If you yelled “OH MY GOD YES!”, today might be the most amazing day of your life. If gambling like a normal person is more your style, throw on your snuggy and hit up some blackjack at an online casino.
Seems the crazy kids over at BetUS have decided that betting on record sales is the future of internet gambling, and why wouldn’t it be with musicians like Kanye West and Fiddy gambling their whole careers on outselling other artists.
At this stage, the betting closes on the 31st of October and the official result will be sourced from billboard.com, but expect the market to remain open until both artists actually release their albums. As far as we can tell, Timberlake has yet to enter the studio, so your money might be on the sidelines for a while.
Current betting has Timberlake the overwhelming favorite at -150 and Rhianna the dog (note the context people) at +110.
