ESPN is set to release its highly anticipated 10-part Michael Jordan documentary series ‘The Last Dance’ on  April 19th, and for those young sports betting players who never got a chance to place a wager on the NBA GOAT, now is your chance with “The Last Dance” betting odds.

Michael Jordan proved to be one of the most intense, determined athletes we have ever seen, and his acts both on and off the court have made him a larger-than-life figure. The “idea” of Jordan might have actually outgrown history itself, and fans are eager to judge for themselves just how truly great the greatest actually was.

Two hour-long episodes will air each Sunday for a five-week run, and given the lack of competition taking place on the hardcourts, sportsbooks have opted to take wagers on the series itself.

BetOnline has recently dropped a list of props for the series’ first episode, with many of the betting lines available center around who and what will appear.

The list features many people, places, and topics commonly associated with the GOAT, and while all options will likely make an appearance over the next five weeks, bettors are essentially asked to predict how director Jason Hehir has decided to tip-off this docuseries.

Gamble on ‘Gamble’

Hehir interviewed 106 people for the series, with former President Barack Obama joining in, and with the unprecedented access given to the camera crew, it is sure to off the most comprehensive portrait of Jordan.

With Jordan himself expressing his concerns over the series’ tone and how fans will view him after its completion, it is sure to touch on some of the darker sides of his life and career.

Most documentaries open with a quick overview of the subject, while informing the audience that they are about to walk alongside them through their highest of highs, as well as the lowest of their lows. Gambling falls into the latter, and with the word ‘gambling’ itself making it into the first episode, I feel pretty comfortable in betting the ‘yes’. Add in the fact that writers like to get witty at times, Jordan’s decision to walk away from the game more than once could also be seen as a career gamble, and those wagering on the word being used could see it dropped in a context outside of the casino betting connotation.

Kobe’s Last Dance

Following Kobe’s untimely death, Jordan revealed just how close his relationship with Bryant actually was. Given this release’s proximity to his untimely passing, it seems natural that the director would at least insert a clip of Kobe’s gameplay.

I do expect a quote or interview with Kobe at some point in the series, but not in the first episode. Either way, the ‘yes’ cashes as the Lakers great gets a subtle nod in the series debut.
