Money, Money, And More Money

With three EPL sides already almost through to the Champions League semi-finals, British bookmakers are salivating at the prospect of an all-English final. James Cone of Bloomberg describes it as a "betting bonanza." Money quote:
Today's results "mean Britain's bookies face a multimillion-pound payout," Coral spokesman Simon Clare said. "But the thrilling prospect of an all-English final will help soften the blow."

A final involving English clubs would, according to Clare, be the
biggest-ever U.K. sports betting event with more than 30 million pounds ($59 million) likely to be wagered.
Well then, who's ready to raid the kid's college fund?
