Sydney is simmering through a sweltering heat today with more intense temperatures on the horizon for Friday.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au is offering odds on the wider effects of the uncomfortable conditions with some interesting options if you fancy a flutter!
The bookie is quoting $5,001 that the Sydney Harbour Bridge will begin to melt and similar odds for the Archibald Fountain to boil over!
With transport systems expected to struggle with the heat, there’s $7.00 on offer for either the buses, trains or ferries to come to a standstill due to overheating.
Sydney is the $1.35 favourite to be hotter than traditional hotspots Jakarta ($11), Singapore ($11) and Adu Dhabi ($16) on Friday.
“We’re all struggling with the heat with the frozen aisle in Coles or Woolies really the place to be right now. Hopefully punters can make a dollar or two off some of our markets to ease their way through it,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
