Irish Betting Site Puts Rochester on The Map for Amazon's HQ2

WHEC - "An Irish betting site puts Rochester in the top 10 cities likely to get Amazon's second world headquarters. 

The odds for Rochester are 16 to 1. That ties Rochester with Philadelphia, Chicago and Toronto. 

According to the online site, Atlanta and Austin have the best odds at 3 to 1. 

News10NBC has reached out to PaddyPower to learn more about how it sets its odds. 

According to Fortune magazine, people in the United States cannot place bets. 

Amazon created one of the biggest sweepstakes in the country by opening bidding to any city that met certain criteria to become the company's second world headquarters. Amazon said the new location would get 50,000 jobs. 

In October, Rochester and Buffalo joined together to submit one bid. The lead Rochester agency for the bid, Greater Rochester Enterprise, signed a non-disclosure agreement with Amazon. Amazon received more than 200 submissions. 

The prevailing thought is Amazon, which has not spoken publicly about its selection process, will make an initial cut down to several dozen cities and then make a final site selection sometime this year."
