Betting on The Mortgage Works charity five-a-side football tournament on June 21 went supernova last week with Mortgage Strategy clear favourites to win the title.
Visitors to Mortgage Strategy Online punting to win a jeroboam of champagne reckon the scribblers' team is tops for the title, ranking Alexander Hall a close second.
After a dazzling display at Molyneux last month at the BM Solutions charity match, James Rodea's Hamptons players seemed nailed-on favourites, but brokers think otherwise with seven out of 10 expecting the MS team to triumph.
But an upbeat Rodea says: “Steve Smith and Richard Verlander both played well in the BMS charity game. Despite Steve missing a penalty in the shoot-out he scored a cracking volley in the game and I've every confidence he will do so again to take us to victory.”
