$20,000.00 Says Waitakere Is Going Nowhere


Here's $20,000.00 To Say Little Waitakere Is Going Nowhere!


A big-time Auckland punter with top Australian bookmaker Centrebet has shown no faith in part-time Kiwi side Waitakere Utd ahead of tomorrow night's World Club Cup clash with Adelaide Utd, plunging nearly $20,000 (NZ) on the Australian club to win the match at $1.22!

The move has forced Centrebet to shorten Adelaide into $1.18, push the Draw out from $6.00 to $6.25, and wind out Ocenia representative Waitakere from $12.00 to $13.00!

"It's a big bet, considering Waitakere is the top NZ club, and will have plenty of followers - all the plumbers, electricians, milkmen, butchers, newsagents, even brothel owners, all cheering their lungs out for this primarily amateur side," Centrebet's Neil Evans said.

The winner of this clash goes on to meet Gamba Osaka - the team that crushed Adelaide's Asian Champions' League bid at the final hurdle last month, then of course a potential monumental showdown with English heavyweight and European champion Manchester Utd!

"Waitakere, of course, won't get that far," Evans said. 'But if they did, it would be the the biggest betting head-to-head gap in football history - something like $1.01 Manchester Utd $31.00 Draw $151.00 Waitakere Utd!

Evans said currently they'd taken around $25,000.00 on Adelaide, and zero (skint, doughnut, blank, empty) on both the Draw and the Kiwi side!

Adelaide is currently a $21.00 hope to win the World Club title, while Waitakere is the rank $151.00 outsider behind hot favourite Man U ($1.47)!
