Hollywood star Matt Damon has already shown his good taste by stopping in to the Long Track Pantry in Jugiong to grab a coffee last month.

Now the wags at Sportsbet are having fun with the honorary Aussie, accepting bets on where Damon will turn up next.

The tongue-in-cheek market was prompted by the down-to-earth Damon doing a live TV interview with the American Today show from the TAB section of his local pub in Byron Bay.

Since moving his family to Australia so he can film Thor: Love and Thunder, Damon has also been spotted at a Kmart in Ballina. A man of the people.

The Big Bogan at Nyngan is $6 favourite to be the next venue for a Matt Damon spotting, just ahead of the Big Prawn at Ballina, at $7.50.

Damon has already been to an AFL match at Docklands and he is $11 to be spotted in Bay 13 at the MCG.

Perhaps underestimating the star's interest in modern art, Sportsbet has put him turning up at MoNA in Hobart at a $21 long shot. Pffft. This the man behind the Jason Bourne franchise. Philistines.

Sportsbet.com.au's Rich Hummerston suggests the place Damon is most comfortable is boho central, Byron Bay, where his good mate Chris Hemsworth has built a mansion, reportedly worth anywhere from $20 million to $30 million.

"Matt's become an honorary Aussie and is certainly seeing a lot of Australia. He's been in Brisbane, Melbourne, but the Byron Bay pub suggests he's well and truly settled into the Aussie lifestyle," Hummerston said.

What are the odds?

Next Place Damon Does Interview From:

$6.00 The Big Bogan

$7.50 The Big Prawn

$9.00 The Dish

$11 Bay 13

$14 The Dog On The Tuckerbox

$15 The Big Banana

$21 MoNA
