Breaking News: Odds at Barcelona vs Real Madrid Game Confusing Oddsmakers
Spain and Europe will take a break from the recession on Sunday for a big game.
Barcelona hosts Real Madrid in what will definitely be an intense battle.
The odds makers are at odds over who is favored to win. When these two teams meet on the field, anything can happen and the best thought out odds can go up in smoke.
At first, Barcelona was the favorite. But then Carlos Puyol was injured in a Champions League game this past week.
Unfortunately for Barcelona, Puyol will be out for an entire two months with a dislocated elbow.
Real Madrid is currently 3-2-1 – not the best start for the popular team.
Speaking of a recession, Spanish football clubs have accumulated over 1 billion Euros in debt – and most of it comes from these two teams.
The high cost of trading and buying players has the European soccer leagues talking about salary caps (like the American NFL has).
Though they may not wish to admit it, salary caps may be a blessing in disguise for the two big spending Spanish teams.
