Synopsis

Upon the words "place your bets" by our odds maker, three betters put their analytic senses and judgment to the test. Each week they bet on things such as:
-Which city will be named to hold the next Olympics?
-Which movie will be the biggest summer box office hit?
-Which car will be voted Car of the Year?
-Who will win the Nobel Peace Prize?
Our odds maker goes through data of past similar events and trends to decide the odds on events that will take place in the near future. Bet results are announced on the next show.
All of the betters start off with 100 Kanossa--make believe currency used on the show. Viewers at home can play along via the internet or mobile phones.
