Harry Potter to die, say UK gamblers
According to the BBC, bettors are laying odds on JK Rowling killing off her beloved title character, Harry Potter, in the seventh book. How many kids received a HP book this Christmas who would be devastated with this news?
Lord Voldemort is the 4-5 favourite to kill off the popular character in the seventh book in the series, entitled Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
Bookmakers William Hill said punters think the young wizard will die.
William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said: "JK mentioned that Harry might be killed off and the general consensus seems to be that Harry is the final Horcrux and to ensure that Voldemort dies he will need to be sacrificed."
