|December 15, 2004 (London, UK) – Since the spot on BBC1’s Crimewatch last night, AnyBets.com has seen a change in the odds for the return of the Osbourne’s jewels before Christmas Day. |
On 9 December, things were looking dismal for Ozzy, with 90 percent of punters betting the £2 million worth of jewellery stolen from the Osbourne’s “Buckingham Palace” would never see the rockstar again, but Crimewatch is changing the opinion of the British public.
‘The Great Osbourne Jewel Theft’ has produced a flurry of interest from bettors who, the website reports, initially abandoned their optimism and feared the worst.
The odds that Sharon will have her jewellery back before Christmas are starting to rise since her plea on Crimewatch, now 16% of people placing bets on AnyBets.com believe that Santa will return them, compared to just 10 percent less than a week ago.
AnyBets.com are running a pool on the Great Osbourne Jewel Theft and the public is getting behind it. AnyBets.com can specialise on taking bets on any and everything the public has an opinion on.
“There’s something about Christmas time that produces a taste for wacky, off-the-wall betting, and that’s right up our street,” a spokesperson for Anybets.com said. “The Great Osbourne Jewel Theft has proved really popular with the punters. If you believe the police will deliver Sharon’s stolen gems before Christmas, place your bets now, the odds are still good, and Sharon could have a very merry Christmas!”
