The first Test of the British & Irish Lions Tour of New Zealand starts on Saturday.
Yet subscribers to the Lap of the Odds blog will be celebrating, whatever the result, given the Lions team selected.
Before the tour started we suggested subscribers take a punt on English bruiser Ben Te’o starting as inside centre for the first Test, at a healthy price of 7/1. (Lions Tour: Te’o to surprise with Test start)
The logic was that head coach Warren Gatland has always preferred a big inside centre (think Jamie Roberts) instead of the play making abilities of the likes of Owen Farrell.
And sure enough, this came to pass when the team was announced on Wednesday. The bet was exclusively with SkyBet, and the bookie was good enough to pay out on the announcement.
