Make a bet! We'll see who wins!

I tried to do the odds as best I could.

Maybe I under-rated Pleks...Probably should have been 2 to 1 for him.

wow, 4 guys are under 1:1 to score the first goal.

I was going to go with Ryder, but not if I have to bet 100 to win 40!

Sorry for the people who already bet Pleks but I lowered his odds to 2 to 1...I would get in trouble with the mods for giving out too much vCash otherwise...

Ryder is too safe a bet...I want people to take risks! (Komo at 10 to 1 odds )

In reality, Garth Murray is about 50/1.

I would agree, but unless 4 guys can score at the same time, it doesn't really make sense to have 4 odds under 1:1 (because once you go under 1:1, it's more than 50% likely that will occur)

That's ok... I appreciate the effort anyway. Maybe I'll take a flyer on Plekanec or something.

First time I do something like this, I'll know for next time.

You need to be a sponsor I think.

Well you would actually win 140 total (100 bet back and 40 for winning the bet).

I didn't think it was 40 total! That would make it a complete fool's bet (guaranteed money loser)

When I was talking about risking 100 to win 40, I meant that my gain (or profit, if you prefer) was 40, so getting 140 back was assumed.

Odds are bad, but I put one for fun anyway. Ryder.

For future reference, when you have 20 choices, odds start at 19:1 for each. Then redistribute those odds based on what you think the real probabilities for each even is. Total should be 100%. You would take a few percentage off all the odds if you were trying to make money as a bookie. Of course, as a bookie you could always make a poll like you just did and make lots of money off suckers .

I'am 2/2 currently, but there is no way to rely on something else than chance on this one so I will pass.
