For this year's predictions, rather than concentrating on my career, which I could only jinx, I'm going to look at some things that could really make me money. I'm having a look at the things you can bet on, with actual money.
The sporting bets aside, about which I know little and care less, the website PaddyPower.com does a nice line in Novelty Bets. Obviously I won't put any money on these bets, unless I prove to be magically prescient then next time round maybe I will, but just for fun what do I predict these outcomes to be?
Bet: Who will replace Chris Moyles as Radio 1 Breakfast DJ?
I predict: Fearne Cotton 12/1
