spoiler: betting on Amazing Race 7 halted after irregular betting on one team.
Spoilers have come to The Amazing Race 7, as the winning team may have been revealed by people using inside knowledge to bet on the show’s outcome. Sportsbook.com issued a press release about its decision to stop wagering on the series, and in it, helpfully revealed the identity of that team in the first sentence. Thanks, assholes. If you want to spoil the suspense, the team with an unusual number of bets was (highlight to read) Uchenna and Joyce. The release says, “Over a 12-hour period last week, from the evening of Thursday, March 3 through the morning of Friday, March 4, a significant increase in betting on these contestants alerted Sportsbook.com odds makers of a possible leak into the show’s outcome. All the bets under suspicion were placed from accounts in California and Massachusetts and were for the maximum allowable wagers.”
