A Few Daft Novelty Bets...

How do the bookies rate the chances of the Yeti or aliens being discovered?

As there seems to be very little happening in the transfer market at the moment, I've been amusing myself by checking out some of the more unusual bets available from various bookies.

One which caught my eye is for 'the Yeti to be discovered before 2015' which is currently offered at 10.0 by Paddy Power.  Of course that's a fairly ridiculous bet so the odds of 10.0 might not be very tempting.

If you're therefore looking for a longer priced bet then how about a bet on aliens to be proven to exist?  That's available from Paddy Power at a slightly more generous 26.0, so the bookies apparently reckon that aliens are even less likely than Bigfoot to be discovered.

However, if you're looking for an even crazier bet at even longer odds, then the bet to go for is Sunderland to finish in the Top Six at odds of 29.0 from SkyBet.  That's longer odds than for aliens or Bigfoot to be discovered, so perhaps we're getting into the realms of fantasy with that bet...

Footnote:  Unfortunately, the way things are going so far this summer 'Mike Ashley to get his cheque book out' is also looking less likely than aliens to be discovered.
