Prop Betting the November Nine

Bodog Sportsbook Offers WSOP Final Table Wagering

This might be the most thought you’ve given the “November Nine” thus far, that is, if you really take a look at the numbers in this post. And I hope you do and analyze it for me. Thanks.

Bodog has put up the odds for the 2008 WSOP final table, and it’s looking pretty good for my STL player, Dennis Phillips. Never mind that he’s the chip leader, but he’s a 3-1 favorite. Kelly Kim from Southern Cali isn’t looking too good with 25-1 odds, but he’s the short stack. As for the rest of the pack, I’m not sure how the odds were calculated, which makes it a good thing I’m not a sports bettor.

Here are the odds and chip counts as of July 25th:

Dennis Phillips (3-1) – 26,295,000 chips
Scott Montgomery (4-1) – 19,690,000 chips
Ivan Demidov (9-2) – 24,400,000 chips
Peter Eastgate (11-2) – 18,375,000 chips
David “Chino” Rheem (15/2) – 10,230,000 chips
Ylon Schwartz (8-1) – 12,525,000 chips
Darus Suharto (17-2) – 12,520,000 chips
Craig Marquis (10-1) – 10,210,000 chips
Kelly Kim (25-1) – 2,620,000 chips

And just for kicks, here is a picture of them all. You are welcome to copy and use it as your screen saver, or you can Photoshop them all into pretty dresses – your call.

    BTW, your boy Dennis the Menace is screwed! You call that a chip lead? He’s no Jamie Gold … he has the kinda chip position going into the final table that generally leads to about 4th place.
