You heard it here. Well, maybe not first, but second or third, hopefully.
The Chicago Tribune’s Phil Hersh reported today the International Olympic Committee won’t give Rio de Janeiro a boost because the city is hosting the 2014 World Cup.
Interesting, but Hersh also reported several British betting sites are putting as high as 1.7-1 odds on Chicago to be awarded the 2016 Summer Olympics. Unfortunately, when i tried pulling up the odds on BetBrain.com, I couldn’t find them.
Anyway, Rio is listed as 3.3-1 and Tokyo at 7.7-1. Bet365.com, has Chicago at 1.72-1, Rio at 3.25-1 and Tokyo at 8-1.
What odds do you give Chicago?
