PLACE YOUR BETS: In N.Y., Greogory Viscusi reported that Montpellier Prosecutor Brice Robin said in a press conference that €87,880 ($113,500) of bets were placed, earning €252,880 ($326,291). The bets were placed in €100 ($129) lots, "allowing winnings to be picked up anonymously" (BLOOMBERG, 10/3). The NOUVEL OBSERVATEUR reported that a second Montpellier match from last season "could be the object of a police investigation." The game in question is the Nîmes-Montpellier clash from April 26. Montpellier, "the unquestioned leader of the league, suffered its first defeat of the season." An English company specialized in the control of online betting noticed "an abnormal spike in bets" coming from Asia (NOUVEL OBSERVATEUR, 10/3).
