Miss World Odds..India 7-1 Fav...New Zealand 100-1

Miss World Odds...India 7-1 Fav...New Zealand 100-1

SYDNEY, Nov. 11 /MediaNet International-AsiaNet/ --

Miss India is Centrebet’s 7-1 favourite to win the Miss World beauty pageant that starts in China this week, with the Australia-based betting agency quoting Miss New Zealand at odds of 100-1.

Amber Peebles – born in Wellington but splitting her time between Auckland and Karaka these days – is bidding to become the first Kiwi winner of the world’s most famous beauty pageant.

Centrebet does not rate the Kiwi make-up artist’s chance but it does respect the claims of those women representing India, Egypt (8-1) and Peru (9-1). Miss Australia (16-1) is also in its top ten.

Miss World betting favourites have an excellent track record. Miss Ireland, otherwise known as Chris de Burgh’s daughter Rosanna Davison, justified 9-2 favouritism in the 2003 competition.

Log on to to view its latest odds, including an exotic market on All Blacks legend Jonah Lomu. He is 5-1 to play for New Zealand at the 2007 Rugby World Cup.
