Amusing (to me, at least): Jayson Stark marvels at the 200-1 odds Bodog offered on the Netherlands to win the WBC at its outset. I still wouldn't bet them at that price now.
How bad a bet was this? According to Stark, you could have bet the Netherlands to advance from Pool A at 50-1, and CRIS offered 30-1 on them to win the WBC before today's game. That's already a payoff of 1580-1 on a parlay, and we haven't even shopped around for better odds.
