Cambridge odds-on favourites to win the Boat Race

| 20.03.2018

This Saturday will see the 164th edition of the famous Boat Race between Cambridge and Oxford.

12 months ago Oxford came through in a time of 16:59 to claim their 12th win from the last 18 contests along the Thames.

But the Dark Blues are up against it this time around. Cambridge are 1/3 to win for only the second time since 2013.

A much-changed Oxford crew are the outsiders at 2/1, while it’s 100/1 for only the second dead heat in boat race history.

The head-to-head record is finely poised, with Cambridge ahead 82-80.

It’s estimated that up to 250,000 will line the riverbanks along the 4.2 mile course this Saturday.

But with the adverse weather conditions refusing to go away, our traders offer just 10/1 for the event to be cancelled.

Richard loves his sport, especially if it involves the sound of tyres screaming around a race track. He's not fussy though and his '90s Premier League nostalgia and knowledge of team nicknames is tough to match.
