I've been watching the Olympics 400m hurdles and believe that Angelo Taylor is underpriced to win the final.

Clement is a class act but arguably has achieved less overall than Taylor and also isn't the most fluent of hurdlers. Watching the heats Taylor has looked the more impressive. However, because of a generally indifferent season Taylor finds himself second favourite.

There are two ways of approaching this - a straight win bet on Taylor at about 5/2. However given the threat from Clement and the lack of a strong challenger for silver outside the two of them I will be backing Taylor on sporting index's performance index.

A 2 unit buy at 26 on A. Taylor.

This means if he wins I win 48 units, he comes 2nd I lose 2 units, 3rd I lose 32 units. If he's unplaced I lose 52 units.

Any one else on with me?

My stakes are relatively small these days, so only about $700.

Nice!
My idea of high stakes is going from the $5 blackjack table to the $20-25 ones.:)
