Betting On The Next Pope

So, you want to lay down some bets on the next Pope?
Go to Paddy Power and look for the Pope betting lines:
For instance,the odds on favorite is Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana who is going down at 5/2 odds.
Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York is a 33-1 long shot, while Cardinal Sean O'Malley of Boston is a 25-1 long shot.
You want a long shot, go with the singer Bono of U-2 is a 1000 to 1 shot.
They also have odds on the length of the Conclave: 5/2 for over 4 days
Number of Ballots held, with the fourth ballot at a 5/2 odds.
According to Las Vegas 1100 AM radio, they think that Paddy Power will take in about $7,000,000 in bets for the bets. 
Most casinos in Nevada don't come close in taking $7,000,000 in bets for the Super Bowl.
So, if you are in Ireland, lay down a bet to see who will be the next Pope.
