Cricket Betting: Punters Expecting Tendulkar Fairytale
India and Sachin Tendulkar are all the rage for the 2011 Cricket World Cup Final on Saturday.
cricket betting spokesman Steve Freeth says: "It’s been one-way traffic with the odds-on boys smashing into India (4/6 into 8/13) and there’s already a gamble emerging on Tendulkar (7/1 into 6/1) landing the man of the match award in his own backyard.
"We thought there would be a few quid flying around for Muttiah Muralitharan on his last appearance, but all the sentimental money is for the ‘Little Master’ in his quest to land his 100th international century in his hometown of Mumbai."
