Melbourne Cup Economics


My opinion editorial: “Beat the Odds in Cup Day Betting” appeared in today’s The Age (Tuesday 6 November). Article is on p.15, and the link is the Sydney Morning Herald online version. A perfect little read for punters who want to get a bit of an advantage when placing a bet. Happy reading!

UPDATE: Irish stayer Green Moon wins at odds of $22.50, reinforcing the points in the op ed about avoiding the local-horse betting bias; as well as the favourite-longshot bias (though that begins to take hold from about those odds).
