Carlsen big favourite to win No Logo Norway Chess

Hello chess blog friends, World Chess Champion is all set to play another tournament next week and is the favourite to win it! CHeck this:

Carlsen big favourite to win No Logo Norway Chess

One of Europe’s biggest online gambling providers, Unibet, do not think the challenge from Fabiano Caruana and Levon Arionian can stop Norwegian chess genius Magnus Carlsen from adding the No Logo Norway Chess-trophy to his own personal trophy cabinet next week.

The outright odds for the Norwegian, ranked as number 1 in the world, is set at 1,75 with Unibet. The betting provider will also stream the chess matches live from No Logo Norway Chess in Stavanger for its Norwegian clients. Furthermore Unibet will provide odds on all the matches; and also offer live betting for the matches involving Magnus Carlsen.

- We can see an increased interest for betting on chess world-wide, and we believe that this tournament can make a breakthrough for chess as a sport to bet on for the online betting market in years to come, claim PR manager Kjell Hanssen at Unibet.

Even though Magnus Carlsen lost his matches against Levon Aronian and Fabiano Caruana during the Zurich Chess Challenge; Unibet do not believe the challengers have shaken Carlsen enough to rob him of the crown in his native country. The outright odds for Aronian going into the tournament is 6,00, while a flutter on Caruana pays back eight times your stake; if he were to win No Logo Norway Chess.

- As the defending champion we believe that Carlsen will be in top shape for the tournament in Stavanger. This time he plays on his own turf, and he wants to show the Norwegian public that he is the world number 1. We also believe he is hungry for revenge since he lost out in this tournament last year to Sergej Karjakin, says Hanssen.

Unibet rank the trio of Aronian, Caruana and Kramnik ahead of Alexander Grischuk who has made a big leap on the world ranking (from 6th to 3rd) during the last month. The outright odds for Grischuk, and Sergej Karjakin, is 15,0 to win in Stavanger.

The second Norwegian participant in the tournament, the former professional footballer, Simen Agdestein, is priced at 150,0 to shock the world of chess by winning in Stavanger.

Unibet’s outright betting for No Logo Norway Chess:
1. Magnus Carlsen (NOR) 1,75
2. Levon Aronian (ARM) 6,00
3. Fabiano Caruana (ITA) 8,00
4. Vladimir Kramning (RUS) 12,50
5. Alexander Grischuk (RUS) 15,00
6. Sergej Karjakin (RUS) 15,00
7. Veselin Topalov (BUL) 18,00
8. Peter Svidler (RUS) 25,00
9. Anish Giri (NED) 25,00
10. Simen Agdestein (NOR) 150,00
