London Olympics 2012 opening ceremony to break 3million viewers

The opening ceremony of the London Olympics looks set to pull in more than 3 million viewers according to a market with online bookmaker

Over 3 million viewers tuning into the opening ceremony has been installed as the $2.10 favourite, with between 2.75 and 3 million viewers next in the market at $3.30.


“Athens pulled in 2.3 million viewers and Beijing attracted 2.8 million and despite the time difference, the opening ceremony for the London 2012 Olympics looks set to be an absolute winner for Channel Nine,”’s Ben Hawes said.

Under 2 million viewers is the $9.00 outsider in betting.
