Is the Fix In?

Betting on the Man Booker Prize is great sport in Britain. Betting has been robust for a literary prize, but it got out of hand the other day with all the “smart” money running to Tom McCarthy’s O. One betting house suspended action on the prize.

If you go by the odds (which follows the money), then McCarthy is the prohibitive favorite. McCarthy is followed in neck-and-neck fashion by Room and In A Strange Room. The other three finalists on the short list appear to be out in the cold.

Well, it’ll all be over next Tuesday. Gentlemen, place your bets!
