What Are the Odds?

There's a problem when betting on a contest where the result's already known to someone, but it's supposed to be a closely-held secret. The closely-held secret can slip out, because there's money to be made. I've seen reports related to Survivor, but today the target is the upcoming Harry Potter book where a major character is supposed to die.

Possible spoilers here for Harry Potter #6...

(And, if they're right, it's just what I would have predicted.)

Update: And a newspaper article with more spoiler info here.
