Kevin The Tipster - New Zealand vs France - The Final

Kevin the Tipster, the results predicting sheep, has had a pretty good run so far in the RWC. A 90% success rate includes correct predictions for both Semi Finals, so today he's had a go at the final. 

You can watch the video to see who the Tipster goes for, as he aims to add to his very impressive 35 from 39 correct predictions. We can tell you though that Paddy Power have already paid out over £600,000 in winnings for those who bet on New Zealand to beat France in the final. 

That's right, according to them, the tournament is as good as over, so they're not wasting any time. "New Zealand has left all of their opposition so far feeling All Black and blue and it’s inevitable us bookies will be taking a hammering from them on Sunday too so punters may as well collect now," said their head honcho. 

Last weekend Paddy Power refunded Welsh punters to the value of over £200,000 following the sending off of Sam Warburton. All losing bets were scratched as they felt the call was wrong. 

The All Blacks were pre-tournament favourites at 4/6 while France were available at 16/1. A final between the two sides was at set at 11/2 and France, heavy underdogs at this stage, are now at 6/1 to pull off another famous upset.

Paddy Power must have discovered how to turn Lead into Gold. I don't see how else to stay in business when you have calls like the welsh refund and the new zealand payout. We're talking of a combined total of 800 000£ (some reports claim de new zealand affair was a 800 000 one). They have already refunded people in the Masters due to Tiger Woods being handed a can of whoop-ass, in the 2010 German Grand Prix due to Ferraris infamous Team Call, last Champions League Final they supposedly (their own numbers) refunded like 3,000,000£, plus the 2011 Wales/Ireland Cardiff affair... How do they break a proffit? Better yet, how do they even manage to stay affloat?!?!?!?!?! Unless they're laundering money for the Russian Mafia or something.

Seriously thinking to start doing all my bets at Paddy Power. If I don't win, at least I'll get my money back and drown my sorrows in the pub

On the spit-roast for Kevin tomorrow, if La France win. Ummmm.......
On the spit-roast anyway, whatever happens, and I will eat his fried testicles as a side dish, if no one else wants to?
