Poker World Future Bets for the Next Decade
THE WEEKLY SHUFFLE, 2010-01-03, by OzoneThere's nothing like some good futures bets that take 10 years to be graded. We'd like to suggest some various propositions with odds for what will happen in the poker world from 2010 through 2019. If you don't understand how sports-betting lines work, a plus (+) indicates you profit that much for a risk of $100, a minus (-) indicates you need to risk that much to profit $100. For example, if a line is +200, you could risk $100 to win $200 (getting back a total of $300 since you keep your original $100). All over/unders have lines of -110 on either side. Note that this is just for fun, we're not actually taking your bets! But with that being said, if you're in the business of tying your money up for ten years in exchange for little expected return, you can give it to us and we promise to give it back to you plus five percent at the start of the next decade. =)
