Shock contestant dominating Australian Survivor betting following dramatic night
Both Simon Black and Daisy Richardson were both sent packing following a savage episode of Survivor.
The bookmakers certainly did not expect Simon and Daisy to leave the show so soon, as they were second and third favourite to win the series, behind Pia Miranda. With the duo leaving the show in dramatic fashion the market has seen quite the shake-up.
Abbie Holmes was $21 with one bookmaker on Oddschecker before Tuesday’s episode, but she has now rocketed into second favouritism. The Australian Rules star is now as short as $6 to win the series, which puts her someway behind current favourite Pia, who is as short as $1.20. To make that easier to understand, BetEasy are saying Pia has an 83% chance of winning the show.
The bets have been flying in after Tuesday’s episode, and the most popular pick with punters has been Abbie Holmes. Holmes has accounted for just over 35% of all bets in the market.
In other Survivor news, Sportsbet are quoting odds of $4 that Rove McManus takes part on Australian Survivor 2020.
