Despite the fact that the winner of the 2023 Ballon d'Or has just been determined, bookmakers have already started offering odds for the 2024 Ballon d'Or. According to them, Real Madrid's Jude Bellingham has the highest chances of winning the award next year.

Currently, the odds for an Englishman to win are 4.00. In the top three, we also find Kylian Mbappé (5.00) and Erling Haaland (5.50). Harry Kane is in the 4th position (7.00). Bookmakers also don't rule out the 9-time Ballon d'Or winner, Messi, giving him odds of 9.00.

Here is the top 20 list of favorites for the 2024 Ballon d'Or according to bookmakers:

  1. Jude Bellingham – 4.00
