World Series of Poker Betting Odds 2014
Americans have home-table advantage at the World Series of Poker and odds are good that an American will be the 2014 WSOP champion.
Online poker room Bovada posted odds this week, just ahead of the 2014 WSOP events which kick off in Las Vegas. It made an American winner the -175 moneyline favorite position.
The full WSOP schedule includes 65 events this year, ending with the $10,000 No Limit Hold’em World Championship Main Event.
This year’s Main Event gets underway on July 5 after a record 6,352 players staked $10,000 for their dream of winning $10M in prizes and the WSOP gold bracelet. The past two champions have been Americans, who traditionally represent the bulk of the entrants.
The odds are much steeper against a past champion even making the Final Table, let alone winning the gruelling event. A ‘yes’ answer is a +600 longshot for bettors who think a past champ will make the November Nine.
And while women have come very close to making the cut for the November Nine the past two years, Bovada made this a -2000 bet that no women will join the men at the Final Table.
The book also posted on odds on what the winning hand will be and on the age of the next champion. The event has become a test of youth, with no recent winners over the age of 27 (which is the over-under for this bet).
