I'm not much of a betting man, but IIRC these odds have to do with demand; i.e. this is market-based thinking. No doubt the Belgian money, desperate to plunk down on someone, is what elevates Van Huffel. And sentimentality, soon to be dashed with extreme prejudice, gets Savoldelli a cushy spot on the list. Anyway, it's fun to ponder, very briefly.
