A Wise Royal Wedding Bet: Elton John The First Dance Choice

Royal Wedding Bet First Dance

DonBest.com has long been the leading line service in the US and leave it to Pat Williams to come up with what we think might be a “lock” when it comes to the perfect Royal Wedding bet.

In his bi-weekly interview with Gambling911.com’s own Jenny Woo, Williams noted that Elton John would likely win out being that he dedicated his “Candle in the Wind” to William’s mother Princess Diana. 

Bookmaker.com is offering odds on the song to be chosen for the first dance

While Elton may be a “lock” according to Williams, he has two songs listed:  “Your Song” and “Can You Feel The Love Tonight”.

Williams joked that “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” is from the animated feature “The Lion King” and might not exactly bode well with the Royal Wedding.  “Your Song” pays 5/1 odds or +500.

Williams definitely might have found his niche as a Royal Wedding bet prognosticator, noting that the favorite – “At Last” by Etta James – was played at the Obama inaugural ball, and it might be a little tacky to use again.

Jenny Woo threw out there the possibility of William and Kate (Middleton) dancing to “Dancing Queen” by Abba.  The payout is good at 40/1 or +4000 odds, but we believe Woo has been prancing around in the mushroom fields of her native Pensacola, Florida if she really believes the Royal couple is going to dance first to an Abba song.
