Every year the rush to buy the right presents at holiday time can be amusing to watch. It can also be very stressful, depending on how you are involved in the process. One interesting way of making the whole thing a lot more fun is to see if the bookies are right when they predict that certain things will sell well.
For the holiday season in 2012, the bookmakers were keen on stating that Call of Duty Black Ops 2 was likely to be a real hit. The bookies were sure to slash the odds on this happening though, after all, Call of Duty games have been the bestsellers for the last three years in the lead up to 2012′s holiday season.
Many bookies had odds of 20/1 on that the game would prove to be the best selling game for present buyers everywhere. The sheer amount of people who unwrapped the game on Christmas Day could probably testify that they were correct in their assertions.
