· Sportsbet brings in price from $5.00 into $4.00 for national temperature record of 50.7 degrees to be broken
· Canberra the $2.50 favourite to be the hottest city in February
Sydney is a $3.00 chance to set a new mark for the month and $5.00 to break the all-time record in the harbour city of 42.2.
Brisbane is $4.00 to eclipse its all-time record of 41.7 and Adelaide is $6.00 to better the ridiculous highest temp of 45.7.
Canberra ($2.50) is expected to be the hottest city in the country this February ahead of Sydney ($3.00), Adelaide ($4.00) and Brisbane ($5.00).
“The temperatures we’ve been seeing across most of the country have forced us to change our prices on the national record being broken and we now see it as a real chance of happening,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
