Odds on Roger Clemens Return to MLB: Wagerweb.com
(Costa Rica, May 4, 2006) Wagerweb.com, one of the Internet’s largest betting sites known for its offering of odds for the hottest issues surrounding the news media (especially sports), posted odds today offering bettors a chance to predict which Major League Baseball team Roger Clemens will return to this season.
“Bettors flock to our site when they hear of these types of ‘proposition bets’ in which outcomes of certain sports issues can be predicted,” says Dave Johnson, CEO of WagerWeb.com. He adds, “The Clemens negotiations are heating up, and we want to be part of the excitement.”
Clemens’ is speaking with the Astros, Yankees, Rangers and Red Sox and negotiations can go either way since there are positive and negative aspects for joining each of these teams. He could join the Yankees with a strong chance of making the playoffs this year and be far from his home and family, or join the Astros and be 20 minutes from his house, yet risk the possibility of not making the playoffs. The posted odds are as follows:
Yankees 1:2 -200 (Bet $200 to win $100)
Red Sox 1:1 +100 (Bet $100 to win $100)
Astros 2:1 +200 (Bet $100 to win $200)
Rangers 6:1 +600 (Bet $100 to win $600)
Field (any other team) 10:1 +1000 (Bet $100 to win $1000)
Note: If Clemens does not sign and remains retired for 2006 MLB season all bets are deemed 'no action'
