Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has Olivia Rogers as an $8.00 chance to follow in Jennifer Hawkins’ footsteps and bring the Miss Universe crown back Down Under.
Rogers has been the best backed with over 30% of the money heading her way but South Africa will be the one to watch.
Since opening at $34, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters (pictured below) has firmed dramatically to be the new $4.00 favourite.
Colombia has placed inside the top three for the past three years, so it’s no surprise that Laura Gonzalez is the second favourite at $6.00
“Punters have been patriotic and getting behind Olivia in the betting. Some late money for South Africa has seen them blast into top spot, so she’ll be the one to watch when the ladies hit the catwalk in Las Vegas this weekend,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
