Former Celebrity Apprentice contestant Lauryn Eagle will start as the $1.60 favourite with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au for her world title fight in Melbourne on Friday against Thailand’s Kiangsak Sithsaithong.


Sithsaithong is the $2.25 outsider for the Super Featherweight bout.


“She’s super fit, is dropping down several weight divisions and has a sizeable height and reach advantage so we’re anticipating she’ll get the job done,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said.

James ‘The Missile’ Magnussen has been installed as the $1.33 favourite by online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au to win gold in the Men’s 100m freestyle at the London Olympics.

Such a favourite to win the event, Magnussen’s nearest rivals in the market, fellow Aussie James Roberts and Brazilian Cesar Cielo, are at a distant $7.00.

“It will take something very special to stop Magnussen from winning the 100m freestyle Gold medal in London,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said

“He will no doubt start shorter than the current $1.33 quote.”

Canadian Brent Hayden, France’s Yannick Agnel and American Nathan Adrian are on the third line of betting at $15.

A punter with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au thinks Barack Obama will be re-elected when the US go to the polls in November after wagering $10,000 on the incumbent.


The punter placed a bet of $5,000 on Obama at the odds of $1.57 before wagering another $5,000 shortly after Obama had drifted out to $1.80.


Obama, who has now attracted three times the money compared to his biggest rival Mitt Romney ($2.60), has firmed into $1.45 to win the election.


“On top of the two $5,000 bets, we’ve seen wagers of $3,000, $2,000 and several of $1,000 on Obama to win,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said.


“It seems the consensus amongst the punters is that he will hold off Mitt Romney and be back for his second and final term.”

Mother Nature looks to have scant regard for the upcoming Olympics in London with the event tipped to cop bucket loads of rain and so much so that online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has priced 10 or more days of rain during the Games at just $1.57.


5 or more days of rain is the favourite in the market at $1.10 while rain on all 17 days of the Games has been priced at $10.


“While we debate who is going to win what event, one thing looks almost certain – it will rain in London during the Olympics! The question is just how often?” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said.


No rain during the Games has been opened at $8.00.

Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has installed the Sydney Roosters as a $13 chance to win the NRL in 2013 with further speculation Sonny Bill Williams will wear the tri-colours next year.

Sportsbet.com.au has also priced Williams at $13 to take out the 2013 Dally M Medal.

“The Roosters were opened at $26 to win it this year so you can see what type of impact Williams will have on their chances of success,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said.

“We’ve opened Williams at $13 to win the Dally M Medal as well. That would put him right near the top of the market.”
