BoDog Casino posts 'The Amazing Race 4' odds, sets favorites
By Reality TV World staff, 05/21/2003
BoDog might have had to suspend it's "Survivor The Amazon" wagering after it caught CBS employees who were apparently in the know betting on the Survivor finalists, but apparently that hasn't stopped them from taking bets on another CBS-produced reality show -- "The Amazing Race 4."
"The fact is, our players really like to wager on reality television,' BoDog President Rob Gillespie told Online Casino News. "It adds something to the viewing experience to have a few dollars riding on it." The Amazing Race 4 begins airing on CBS on May 29th. When BoDog first opened it on May 13th, two teams were listed as 4/1 favorites. For complete current odds, see below.
According to BoDog, David and Jeff, best friends from Manhattan Beach, CA and Monica and Sheree, from Duluth, GA are considered the front-runners to win. "Monica and Sheree are wives of NFL players and look to be in great physical condition," said Gillespie. "The team of David and Jeff look to be in good shape, not too young and not too old."
"Both teams look very strong and seem to have the right attributes to be successful," said Gillespie who indicated he had no fears about CBS employees using insider knowledge on this show for profit. "We feel pretty confident that they won't be back," said Gillespie. "But if we see something out of the ordinary again, we'll be sure to investigate."

Reichen & Chip 3/1
David & Jeff 4/1
Monica & Sheree 4/1

Millie & Chuck 6/1
Jon & Al 6/1
