There’s still no word on when Harry Redknapp’s chauffeured Bentley will roll up outside QPR’s training ground for the veteran wheeler dealer (just don’t call him that) to tell all regarding the Super Hoops’ late business, but betting opportunities abound on deadline day.
You can still get 1/5 on the man who would be England manager performing his customary roadshow from the comfort of a car window, while Redknapp’s interview lasting longer than three minutes is available at snap-your-hand-off 11/5 odds.
However, an even better way to make money from the 67-year-old’s twice-yearly sojourn into the markets could be by backing the west Londoners to make the last transfer of the window at 6/1.
Considering QPR are rumoured to be in for Fabio Borini, Jermain Defoe, Aaron Lennon, Sandro, Gary Lineker, both the Charlton brothers and probably Peter Crouch, this price looks as likely to turn into profit as not.
In other deadline-day betting news, the imminent arrival of feted news anchor Jim White into the Sky Sports studios, where he’ll feature from 7pm onwards, has seen the black and gold boys at bwin.com price up which cliche the Scot will blurt out first.
‘The clock is ticking’ is the strongly-fancied 6/4 favourite, followed by ‘A Sky Sports exclusive’ at 5/1.
However, ‘This just in’ at 14/1 should hold plenty of appeal with fewer than four hours ‘before the window slams shut’, which – incidentally – is available at 5/1.
