Edvard Munch's The Scream Odds-on to Make Over $100 at Auction
LONDON, May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Bookmakers Bodog.co.uk estimate that the $80,000,000 price tag set by Sotheby's for tomorrow's auction of The Scream will be smashed and go 4/6 that the painting goes for over $100,000,000.
For those less optimistic its 11/10 that it will make less than $100,000,000 with the same firm. The current record for a painting at auction stands at just over $106,400, a record that could also go tomorrow.
Betting on the auction has seen both sides backed but with slightly more customers thinking the painting will rake over the $100 million mark.
The auction takes place tomorrow (Wednesday, May 2nd) Sotheby's in New York.
