Bostonians Still Believe in Red Sox

20 Oct 2005

NEW YORK – (PRESS RELEASE) – Anyone who doubts a Red Sox fans' faith should speak with executives from SportsInteraction.com. The North American sportsbook continues to record a record amount of pro-Red Sox bets involving the present series with the White Sox, to the World Series.

Post-season play usually produces a large volume of bets, given that fans feel that playoff teams are more predictable. Yet bets coming from the Boston area and greater New England continue to be the heaviest at SportsInteraction.com, indicating that Red Sox fans are true believers.

"Red Sox fans seem to be keeping the faith even though they got routed last night in Chicago," says Anthony Munnelly, vice president of sports and events, at SportsInteraction.com. "Don't forget, the Red Sox were only three outs away from playoff elimination against the Yankees last year before the momentum swung in that series, and then in 86 years of baseball history."

SportsInteraction.com – the first online sports book licensed and regulated in North America – saw a 57 percent increase in bets this year in favor of the Red Sox winning the World Series. It seems that with Boston's historic victory over the New York Yankees last year that led to the Red Sox sweeping the World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals have fans believing that they can pull off the repeat.

Despite last night's routing, bets on the Red Sox to win the Red & White series continued to roll in overnight. A routine audit of IP addresses indicated a majority of those bets coming from Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire.

While the White Sox have home field advantage and the 1-0 lead in the series, almost 70 percent of New England bettors are choosing Boston over Chicago.

"After last year, Bostonians know better than anyone that it ain't over 'til the fat lady sings," added Munnelly.
