All Bets Are Off On ‘Survivor’

Bradley said that bets taken from those alleged to be with CBS skewed the odds significantly on “Survivor” contestants.

At least two players have been identified as CBS employees and other names may be connected to the network or may be aliases, Bradley said. The biggest payoff, $8,000, came on a $1,000 bet placed on the fifth “Survivor” at 8-to-1 odds.

Odds will be offered on the seventh “Survivor” but all bettors will be carefully monitored, BoDog President Rob Gillespie said in a statement.

“Only ‘The X-Files’ has more conspiracy theories than ‘Survivor,'” CBS spokesman Chris Ender said. Asked if BoDog might consider legal action, he replied: “It’s not something we’d want to pursue, as a matter of precedent.”

Betting on events other than sports or racing is banned in Las Vegas sportsbooks, a spokeswoman for the Nevada Gaming Control Board said Thursday. The players in question opened accounts with BoDog before “Survivor: Marquesas,” the fourth show, and bet only on the show and no other events.

Callers to the Bodog.com offices were told that wagers were no longer being accepted on “Survivor.”

An online sportsbook said it has dropped betting on CBS’ “Survivor” after allegedly finding that network employees were wagering – and winning – on the hit reality show.

The Costa Rica-based BoDog.com found at least two CBS employees betting on the show’s outcome, said BoDog spokesman Lance Bradley. All Rights Reserved. One person was said by BoDog to work in a “production role” for CBS.

For the current “Survivor,” the bets in question affected the odds for contestants Jenna Morasca of Pittsburgh, Pa., and Matthew Von Ertfelda of Washington, D.C.

They wagered correctly on who would be the final two contestants in both the fourth and fifth editions of “Survivor,” Bradley said. He declined further comment on the allegations, or on any action CBS might take.

“We’re pretty sure this is the case,” Bradley said. Most offshore sportsbooks accept such alternative bets, said BoDog’s Bradley.

The show narrows the field to two finalists in filmed competitions. The suspicion is they had insider knowledge, he said.

The players’ current bets on “Survivor: Amazon” have been canceled and their money refunded, Bradley said. The winner is unknown until he or she is chosen in a vote by other contestants during a live broadcast.

“Throughout the history of ‘Survivor,’ many have believed they knew the outcome of the show,” Ender said.

. “Some have been right, many have been wrong.”

He wasn’t aware of any other possible legal sanctions.

BoDog requires that bettors must not have knowledge of an event’s outcome

Sports betting tip #1 – Money Management

There is a reason the casinos in Las Vegas supply you with free drinks while you are gambling. When you are betting big bucks the difference in odds translate into a huge difference in your payout.
