Britain’s bookmakers have suspended betting, or are offering even money odds, on the race to succeed Rowan Williams as Archbishop of Canterbury.
On 6 Nov 2012 Paddy Power and Ladbrokes closed their books on bets for the next Archbishop of Canterbury.
Gamblers who wish to take an ecclesiastical flutter, however, may still place bets with Paddy Power on who the next pope might be. The current favorites for the See of St Peter are Cardinal Francis Arinze of Nigeria (15/8), Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana (9/4), and Archbishop Angelo Scola of Venice (7/1).
