    World Cup Betting

    Found this very interesting, obviously the odds avry from site to site, bookies to bookies, but nonetheless, everywhere I have turned England are second favourites for the World Cup behind Australia, don't know what our One Day team has done to deserve such optimism!

    Australia 2/1
    England 5/1
    Pakistan 5/1
    India 6/1
    South Africa 6/1
    West Indies 10/1
    New Zealand 10/1
    Sri Lanka 12/1
    Zimbabwe 250/1
    Bangladesh 400/1
    Kenya 500/1
    Canada 1000/1
    Ireland 1000/1
    Scotland 1000/1
    Holland 1000/1
    Bermuda 1500/1

    England should be 7th out of 8 at best!
    Bookies seem as bad as selectors at this mixing-up of the game-forms!

    Nah, it's way easier the way Neil laid it out. Aus = $2.10 is easier than 2.1/1

    Betting is a fool's game.

    It's a genius's game when you win and a fool's game when you lose. Still, England aren't even worth an optimistic flutter at that price.

    It's a fool's game when you win because then you just stick your winnings onto something else until you lose.

    More generalising I see
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
