Betting on the Bee

How many times in life do you have the opportunity to combine grade school and gambling? BetUs is giving you just such a chance with their lines on the 2009 National Spelling Bee. You can bet on the length of the winning word, whether or not the champion will be donning glasses along with their trophy, and the gender of the winner. Ladies have historically had a slightly stronger showing than men, winning forty three championships vs. forty one for the boys. However, this year the guys have the upper hand as they have more overall contestants. There are 150 boys and 143 girls competing this year, making this the biggest spelling bee contest in history.

The grand prize winner takes home 30k from Scripps. How much are you going to take home from BetUs?

Gender of Winner
Male -130
Female -110

Length of Winning Word
Over 9.5 Letters -130
Under 9.5 Letters -110

Winner to Wear Glasses
Yes +120
No -160
