NZ 25-1 Not to Win a Medal of Any Colour
Bookmaker Offers Odds on Every Athens Games Gold... NZ 25-1 Not to Win a Medal of Any Colour
SYDNEY, Aug. 3 /MediaNet International-AsiaNet/ --
Australian bookmaker Centrebet is taking bets on every Athens Games gold medal - from archery to wrestling - and offering odds of 25-1 that New Zealand does not win a medal of any colour.
Kiwis won four medals in Sydney - including one gold - but Centrebet is tipping them to double their haul in Athens. For example, New Zealand is odds on to win the women's double sculls.
"We Aussies like to poke fun at our Kiwi cousins but the fact is that New Zealand could win as many gold medals in Athens as it did medals of any colour in Sydney," says Centrebet's Gerard Daffy. "Caroline Evers-Swindell and her twin sister, Georgina, will take a lot of beating in one of the rowing events, while Bevan Docherty has a favourite's chance in the men's triathlon race."
Australia won 16 Sydney Games gold medals but Centrebet, offering odds on every event for the second tournament in a row, is tipping that Advance Australia Fair will get fewer airings in Athens.
"We do not expect Australia to win as many titles as it did in Sydney four years ago," says Daffy. "Home advantage is huge. For example, Spain won 13 gold medals in Barcelona but only five in Atlanta. Australia will do well to get into double figures on the other side of the world."
