Boof to smoke Rigor in 100m race say punters

Centrebet punters are backing Australia batsman Darren Lehmann to beat New Zealand opener Mark Richardson in their charity race over 100 metres at the end of the Test match in Adelaide.

Lehmann (Boof as in boofhead) is $1.50 with Centrebet to burn off Richardson (Rigor as in rigor mortis) when the fun-loving cricketers race for charity at Adelaide Oval. The underdog is $2.40.

Punters are betting on a memorable week for Lehmann in his home city. Centrebet reports good money for the Aussies ($1.45) to beat the Kiwis and Boof ($15.00) to be the man of the match.

"Boof will leave Rigor trailing in his wake if organisers put a packet of smokes at the end of the track," says Gerard Daffy. "Australia is odds on to win the Bledisloe Cup of amateur athletics."

Log on to to view its latest odds. For example, a multi bet on the Aussies beating Great Britain at rugby league and England at rugby union pays over $4.30.
