African Cup of Nations 2013: Premier League bias should encourage Ivory hunters

The likes of Yaya Touré in the squad lead punters to over-emphasise the chances of Ivory Coast

When it comes to the African Cup of Nations, punters are overly-influenced by the presence of Premier League stars, writes Jack Houghton.

"How much do odds of 2.76 – which suggest they have a greater than one-in-three chance of lifting the trophy – reflect Ivory Coast’s recent superiority over competitors, and how much do they reflect that, of the 15 players from the Premier League who will journey to South Africa for the finals, six will be in their squad?"
