PDVT Final Board Odds Update v1

Postby nanooktheeskimo » 17 Dec 2014, 21:13

Ok, here we go again. Looking at the game, it occurs to me that it would be a good idea to do odds for which minor belongs to which country. That, however, is a lot of work. If there's an intrepid reader who feels like doing it in their heaps of spare time, then be my guest, and I'll copy them into the main post (with due credit, of course!). Otherwise, I'll do them by request. I would normally write a witty or clever opening here,
for those of you who have read my past odds posts, shhhhhhh
but I think I'm just gonna use it to complain and whine and moan this time instead ;)

Ok, odds, now by country!

Solo odds by country:
Britain, 4/1
France, 6/1
Italy, 8/1
Germany, 6/1
Poland, 7/1
Turkey, 4/1
USSR, 5/1
Any Minor, 20/1

A new addition to the betting catalogue! And a personal favorite of mine.

Over/Unders:
Most SC's at end of game for a minor, 3 at 1/4, 5/1; 3.5 at 1/2, 3/1; 4 at 1/1, 3/2; 4.5 at 3/2, 5/4; 5 at 4/1, 9/5; 5.5 at 5/1, 1/2.
(First number is number of SC's. Second number are odds for over bets. Third number are the odds for under bets. Push bets are all 2/1 odds.)

That's it for this week I think. Have fun, and remember: the sillier the bet, the better ;)

Where does one store 20,000,000 barrels of crude oil...?

Actually on second thought, seeing how it is sinny perhaps i may not want to know how she commandeered such property...

And I'll give you 1/10 odds, so enjoy your 22,000,000 barrels of crude oil.
