NordicBet bookmakers have former U.S. Vice President Al Gore as a 4-1 favorite to win the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, the same odds they give Irena Sendler of Poland, Aftenposten reported Wednesday.

Sendler was nominated for saving 2,500 Jewish children during World War II. Gore is being considered for the honor for his best-selling book and Academy Award-winning film, "An Inconvenient Truth."

Other top favorites among the odds makers are environmental activist Sheila Watt-Cloutier and Indian climatologist Rajendra Pachauri.

Betsafe.com made U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change leader Rajendra Pachauri its favorite for the prize. The online betting site also has Watt-Cloutier and Gore as top candidates to accept the award when it is presented Friday, the Norwegian newspaper said.
