Hottest 100 Tips: The Bookie’s Guide

For many people Australia Day is as much about triple J’s Hottest 100 as it is about inclusive patriotism, beers, barbies and backyard cricket. Why not make make your beer-fueled fun a little more interesting with a casual wager on your prediction of Australia’s Favourite Song of 2012. Sporting Bet has a long list of potential winners for Number One Song. Let’s take a look at the top odds…

1. Somebody That I Used To Know – Gotye (Ft. Kimbra)
Bookies take: 1.11 to 1 (or a $1 bet pays $1.11)
Our take: There hasn’t been a surer bet for #1 since The Offspring’s “Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)” took out the title in 1998. It really was. And it really did. You know it’s going to win, we know it’s going to win, Gotye – the personification of humility! – knows it’s going to win. Sporting Bet has tipped the following songs to round out the top ten best odds, but proceed with caution because this is a one horse race.

The Hottest 100 starts from midday (around the time people will be waking from their pre-Australia Day ritual of getting shickered) so tune in to triple j and count it down…
