With a decision now imminent in the thriller trial of Dr Conrad Murray, Paddy Power have today shortened the odds on Michael Jackson’s doctor NOT being found guilty of the involuntary manslaughter of the King of Pop from 4/5 to 8/15.
The bookmaker, who has accepted bets on the outcome of the televised trial since it began six weeks ago, originally set the odds much tighter but recent betting activity heavily favours the 58-year old doctor beating the rap.
Paddy Power are also taking bets on the whether the jury are unable to reach a unanimous decision, making it a 5/4 shot that this is the case.
Paddy Power said “From a betting point of view we give Dr Murray a 65% chance of dodging a guilty verdict but these high profile celebrity trials have proved the form book wrong in the past”
Will Dr Conrad Murray be found 'guilty'?
5/4 Jury does not come to a unanimous decision
