"With public speculation swirling out of control and people searching for answers," the online betting service BetUs.com said. The site is posting odds and accepting wagers "on the shamed governor's future."
Demand for the site's services is high.
"The page views alone have hit the million mark," said Reed Richards, spokesman for BetUs.com, which is known as the most-successful sports book on the Web. "We've had close to 5,000 people throw down on it," said Richards.
The average bet at the site is $5, Richards said. The safest bets are that Blago will serve prison time and that he'll begin serving time after Dec. 30, 2009.
"There's a real belief that this guy is going down," Richards said.
The online service also is taking wagers on questions that are a little snarkier. Will he get a divorce? Odds are 9-1 that he will. Will he move out of the U.S.? Gaming oddsmakers place the likelihood at even. What will his next job be? Best odds are on used-car salesman, followed by telemarketer, pizza delivery guy, construction worker and "motivational speaker."
