Odds of winning the Candidates Tournament 2014. Who do you think will win? Who would you bet on with these odds?
With those odds I'd bet on Svidler! And I'd short Mamedyrov, Anand, and Andrekin; the rest are handicapped about right.
This is a championship tournament being held in Russia, and Peter Svidler has a bigtime habit of winning them. At the London Candidates tournament he finished 1/2 point behind Carlsen and Kramnik. Rating him as the lowest-rated underdog is irrational.
Topa will win this
My spider sense says, it will be Anand once again Although I would like the either Aronian or Kramnik to win as they are considered more capable of taking on Carlsen.
As has been said before, I think Svidler will have at least the same odds to win as Karjakin, Mamedyarov and even Anand and Topalov. At least much better odds, with all respects, than Andreikin has.
Still, I expect either Aronian or Kramnik to win.
I think Kramnik is the clear favorite, but I can't believe Svidler's odds are that low. He has been playing wonderfully of late.
Kramnik will be the challenger \ do not forget that He took the ,title from Kasparov the gratest player of all time, wich most likle happend because of that one bad opening choise of his opponent.
Based on the odds, I'd go with Karjakin but I like Aronian's chances.
Kramnik already has a world championship title, so he probably doesn't need another one.
Guys -- are you forgetting who Vishy Anand is? 5 Time World Champion -- I would not count him out just yet...
Svidler at 15-1? Hell yup.
it will be nice to see Anand get another crack at the championship, but if I have to put my money into it, I will have to split it 55/45 between Kramnik and Topalov... Aronian is the best among the group but I don't think he is hungry enough for a championship match...
I think Aronian will win. (:
anand will go
The only player who even has a very slight chance of beating Carlsen is Kramnik.
Isn't Nakamura playing?
Those odds make more sense. Carlsen v Kramnik would be a huge match!
Vlad lost his chance for the right to play for the World Championship to Magnus on the higher-number-of-wins tiebreak at London. I think he'll get it done this time around. I am not a betting man, but here's another take at the odds for the outright winner at sports.bwin.com:
Kramnik 2.75, Aronian 2.75, Karjar 7, Vishy 10, Topalov 10, Mamedyarov 14, Svidler 14, Andreikin 21.
With respect to the World Championship, the same site currently has Magnus at 1.4 to retain his title and 2.8 for him to lose it, and in particular, Vlad at 6 to wrest it from him. Enjoy!
Aroinian Kramnik or Svidler, but i don't bet, so i don't know how the odds sytem works.
kramnik or aronian
Caruana is next in line.
