|Punters on international pool betting website AnyBets.com, hope that ex-Hear’Say’s Suzanne Shaw will have a Christmas baby, and they are putting their money on it! |
More than half of the bettors predict the pregnancy will run to schedule, and that the little bundle of joy will come into the world on December 25. Considering the problems Suzanne’s had in the last month with the pregnancy and the baby’s father, Darren Day, a Christmas baby would be the perfect gift for the former popstar.
30% think that the baby will arrive late, and 15% bet that Suzanne will go into labour early and deliver on Christmas Eve.
According to an AnyBets.com spokesperson the pool has only just begun and already people are flocking to the website to place their bet.
“Given the grief poor Suzanne has had during her pregnancy, it’s great to see the public get behind her and hope for a Christmas baby. Everyone seems to be cheering for her and it’s such a great testimony to the public that they’re putting their hope in the magic of Christmas. The odds for Suzanne to have her baby on Christmas Day are very good at the moment, but it will be up to nature in the end to decide if the Christmas wishes for the majority of punters are fulfilled.”
AnyBets.com will run a pool on practically any subject or topical issue imaginable, and is proving increasingly popular with the public as a means of betting on the hot topics that aren’t offered by traditional bookmakers.
