Ron Paul is going off at higher odds then Pawlenty?

Your $40 bet looks much better in that light. Any money on Pawlenty at those odds is a sucker bet!

Aye , they where doing a strange one last year in regards to Obama disclosing alien life forms before 2012. IIRC the odd's where 200/1. Never put a punt on it.

They have odds on everything including the next pope.

I was thinking ill get in now while the odds are good, If he gets in next year which I hope, pray and beg he does then im walking away with just over 2k sterling. Since I won't on principle bet on horses (I think its cruel) a man has to get his betting action on something else.

I had a friend who laid $20 on the Minnesota Twins to win the World Series prior to the 1991 baseball season. In 1990 they finished dead last.

Stupid bet? Oh, I don't THINK so! Twins go all the way and my friend makes a tidy bundle. (Think they were going off at 500-to-1 when he put the money down.)

Could it happen with Ron Paul? Never say never, and I know I'd be okay with that.

Putting a bet down at the very least will make the unending torture of political ads a bit more tolerable.

I hear ya, im not a big gambler but it definalty puts the spice back into life when there is something to look forward to, even if its a silly flutter. Its not like im gonna miss £40, well in my economy thats one round of drinks at the bar and with such good odds not to mention EVERYONE loves an underdog it would be silly not to.
