The betting markets are open on Sporting Index and Betfair for the Winter Olympics 2006. I can’t say I’ll be watching. The whole thing reminds me of bored Sunday afternoons watching Ski Sunday which, to be fair, has something of a cult following: listen to the theme and watch highlights here. My parents were well into it, but like most forms of racing I get a little bored. How many times can you watch people skiing down a mountainside?
Anyway. Ski Sunday was born after the 1976 Winter Olympic Games. I was seven, so I have to rely on others to assure me it was a right televisual treat. I reckon that if you want to make the Winter Olympics interesting, you should place bet on something. And nowadays there are so many options to choose from.
If you find stuff like spread betting, exchange betting and in-play betting a bit complicated, why not go with Totesport, a traditional bookie offering a FREE £25 bet on anything. If it’s the best odds on the Winter Olympics that interest you, try Betfair, where you exchange bets with other punters, can lay your own odds and bet in-play.
There’s spread betting from Sporting Index. It’s more risky to spread bet on the Winter Olympics, but they’ve got some great offers including £100 cashback after ten settled bets. Finally, Cantor Spreadfair, who offer up to £2,500 cashback, combine spread and exchange betting to create a whole new Winter Olympics experience.
