Probably the most interesting article I’ve read on betting in quite a while. I’m not much of a gambler myself, but nowadays you can bet on just about anything. Even on who is going to die on Games of thrones next season…..and by who…..
The thing that cracks me up about betting on “pre determined” out comes(wrestling, TV shows, reality TV) is how does that stop the people who make these decisions from making a mint? The biggest upset in odds I’m aware of is when(I’ll be back in a second comic folk I’m going to wrestleville)Brock Lesnar beat the Undertaker at WrestleMania in 2015.The odds on that was heavily slanted to the Undertaker winning. If I knew the finish, could I not make a mint by betting an hour before hand? What could they accuse me of?….it was pre determined.
(Back folks).The same can be said of GOT. Could not one of the writers or anyone else in the know bet on this before it airs?
Interesting tidbit of the day. What was the very first show outcome that was bet on? ………..(drumroll).Who shot JR?……which would make sense. It also made sense that the gaming boards put an end to it.
Thanks to sportsbettingexperts.com for the article inspiration. Bet they didn’t see that coming.
