The Hugo Awards: what are the odds?
August 15, 2014 2:07 PM Subscribe
I thought bookmakers would take bets on just about anything, bookish competitions included—Ladbrokes has Haruki Murakami at 6:1
for this year's Nobel Prize for Literature—but I'm not finding anyone offering odds on this weekend's Hugo Awards.
Are there any "official" odds on the Hugos? And if not, why not?

Note: I'm not looking to place a bet. I'm just interested in how objective professionals are handicapping a slate of Best Novel nominees that pits Ann Leckie (who's swept the field this year) against Mefi's own cstross against the entirety of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. I know how I'd vote, but I don't know what to expect the outcome to be, and I can't seem to find anyone offering odds.
