Default Interesting WSOP ME - Sportsbook Bet.

So, pinnaclesports.com has what i consider to be a very reasonable wager being offered for the WSOP ME. I've reviewed many sportsbooks to see if there were any value bets to be made, and this is the only one i've come up with. id be interested in seeing what you kids think.

The way it works is you pick either Group 1 or Group 2. In each group you get 10 assigned players. The winning wager will be decided depending on which group of 10 players makes more money in the WSOP ME.

Group 1:
Phil Hellmuth
Dan Harrington
John Juanda
Chris Ferguson
Johnny Chan
Barry Greenstein
John Phan
Tuan Le
Michael Mizrachi
Antonio Esfandiari

Group 2:
Daniel Negreanu
Howard Lederer
Ted Forrest
Erick Lindgren
Layne Flack
Erik Siedel
Doyle Brunson
Scotty Nguyen
Mike Matusow
Scott Fischman

When thinking about the list, i think one side should clearly be favored over the other. however, they're offering each side at -105 (meaning, bet 105$ to win 100$). Then, i sent the list to my friend who felt whole-heartedly that the other side would win.

So, what do you think and why?

Bodog is offering odds as well on the ME, but I believe you can actually choose a player. I believe the lowest odds I saw were like 180-1.

yes, im huge on group 1 as well. interestingly, group 1 dropped to -102 (which means money came in on group 2 in the past few minutes).

this might be easier money than party sngs.

I actually think it's pretty close.

If I had to pick, I'd pick group 2.

I agree completely - it's very close, but in a pinch, I'd have to take group 2.

While I agree I think group one is stronger this is by no means "easy money" due to the escalating pay scale. Group one could outperform group 2 but one deep finish is likely to decide the whole thing. That being said, -105 is very low juice, so it's probably a good bet, it's just tough to be a great bet.
