DaVinci's probably sick of it too.

Didja bet on Aras? He had the most consistently good odds all season. The leak may have been Danielle, but CBS has learned so much about insider marketing that throwing off the odds and making Bodog shut them down completely was playing you instead of the other way around. Sneaky sneaky, CBS.

And then, if you haven't heard, there's this little arthouse flick called The DaVinci Code. A couple people have talked about it.

All the hype surrounding this movie will finally come to a head this opening weekend. So, maybe you aren't going to be making any scrilla from the box office receipts, but you can get some cocktail cash from how much you think it's gonna make.

I'll be real, I was iffy on the book. The story was fascinating, the writing not so much. But it was an enjoyable summer read. And I'm not gonna lie, I still like Tom Hanks. He could sell milk to a cow in my eyes. Add Ian McKellen and the cutest in the world Audrey Tatou, and I'd go see it. And Ron Howard is a decent director-- not great to me, but I think he could pull it off.

Over at Sports Interaction, you can take a gander at the odds for how much the blockbuster's going to make:

Your best odds are US$105 - 119 Million at 2.87.

You could possibly hedge that with thinking it'll make over US$ 120 Million at 3.50.

I'd much rather go see a movie starring a sane person than crazy-ass-fake-baby Tom. Click and check the odds. Maybe it'll make some weird numerical amount that's part of the code. Or something.
