Haruki Murakami Has 11/1 Odds to Win 2010 Nobel Prize in Literature
By Jason Boog on GalleyCat, Sep 29, 2010
According to the betting site Ladbrokes,Swedish author Tomas Transtromer has the best chance with 5/1 odds. Japan's Haruki Murakami and Australia's Les Murray both have 11/1 odds of winning the prize.
Take these odds with a grain of salt. Last year, Herta Müller beat some tough odds to win the 2009 prize--Ladbrokes had Israeli author Amos Oz as the 4 to 1 favorite. (Via Michael Orthofer)
I notice looking at the full list at Ladbrokes that Peter Carey is at 100/1 while Bob Dylan is th rank outsider at 150/1 !
