While it used to be that you could only bet on the outcome of a football match or tournament, in recent years Paddy Power has taken the betting world by storm by offering a range of novelty wagers. It seems the Irish bookmaker has gone all out for the World Cup, with a range of amusing, entertaining and downright bizarre odds. One of our favourite bets has to be on how many babies will be named Wayne (after Wayne Rooney, of course) in 2010.
Similar to the new Nike football advert, which stars Rooney and depicts several babies being given the name Wayne by proud parents, Paddy Power is offering odds on how many parents-to-be will choose to name their child after one of England’s brightest hopes. The full odds on this fun bet are listed below:
- 201 to 300 15/8
- Less than 100 2/1
- 101 to 200 3/1
- 301 to 400 4/1
- Over 500 9/2
- 401 to 500 6/1
Paddy Power’s odds cover the amount of baby boys named Wayne in 2010 and will be confirmed from results published by The Guardian. For more details and to place a wager, visit Paddy Power today.
