Online bookmaker 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.

Mike Baird declaring Friday a public holiday is rated a $11 shot while Waverley Council allowing swimmers to take a dip in Bondi in just their birthday suits is paying $21.

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’s Will Byrne.
