Matt odds on to beat Indira

CENTREBET MEDIA RELEASE (OCTOBER 17, 2006)

NZ Idol title betting...Matt odds on to beat Indira

Online betting agency Centrebet says that Matt Saunoa is odds on to be crowned the new NZ Idol.

Levin's Matt is Centrebet's $1.66 favourite to win the title, with Auckland's Indira Moala at $2.10.

Matt has been Centrebet's favourite since Becks exited the competition four weeks ago but both he and his final opponent were rank outsiders when betting opened on the series on August 1.

"Someone out there had a better crystal ball than me because one clued-up punter backed Matt at $67.00 and Indira at $51.00 before the semi-finals started," says Centrebet's Gerard Daffy.

"He had $30 on Matt and $20 on Indira so he'll be hoping Matt gets the chocolates because a Matt win is worth double that of an Indira win. The odds are he'll get his optimum result."

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
