Re: 2009 FINA World Championships

well Peirsol always tries to give us better odds for the final by going slow in the heats, so he's one of the good guys

shame he didn't make it.

Re: 2009 FINA World Championships

Veldhuis won't start on the 100m free to concentrate on the 50m free and butterfly.

Re: 2009 FINA World Championships

Centrebet have opened Paul Biedermann at $4.50. Don't think I can resist this... Biedermann only just fell short of Phelps WR today and is almost certain to break it in the final... and Phelps will be wearing the same gear from his Beijing WR... think this will be a close one.

Re: 2009 FINA World Championships

Somebody really likes Biederman - his price has been slashed to $2.35 on centrebet now

Just think Phelps was paying $1.05 at the start of the meet for the 200m free

Womens 4x100 free: Dutch (1.50) just win
Mens 4x100 free: France (1.30) come 3rd

Mens 100 breast: Gangloff (1.88) was fav I think, fails to make final
Womens 100 fly: Veldhuis (1.70?) was fav I believe, just makes final, comes 8th
Mens 50 fly: Munoz (??) comes 3rd
Womens 200 IM: Coventry (1.80?) comes 4th
Don't forget Aaron Too Cool For School Peirsol in the 100m back Think he was 1.10 or so before the SFs.

Re: 2009 FINA World Championships

There are some really good prices at swimming bets from what I see here, the bookies don't seem to have a clue about this.

Irie @ 9 and Wildeboer @ 3 are such high odds.

Phelps @ 1,65 is a good one too, Biederman is incredible right now but I don't see Phelps losing this one.

Filippi to win the 1500 looks good too, I picked her to win this event last week in a picking contest from a Brazilian swimming website.

Too bad I don't bet

Re: 2009 FINA World Championships

I see bwin puts Coventry to win the 100 back @ 8. This must be a good one too.

Re: 2009 FINA World Championships

I would take Tancock over Arkady @ 2 as well. The Russian is more a 200 back swimmer and the Brit is swimming fast. He had a good 100 free split at the relay.

Monk to beat the Dutch @ 2.3 is a good price too.

win

These champs are turning into a laughable farce, moreso than I initially suspected. People thought the track and field WR's from the drug riddled 80's would never be broken, but they look a hell of a lot more attainable than some of these will.

Some of these world records will never be broken, ever. Over the next 20 years I think we'll be lucky to have more than a couple broken.

Oh well, was a nice sight seeing Phelps lose... looked like he couldn't get off that podium quick enough.
