    Betting on the Oscar Pistorius trial is morally okay but betting on whether someone will have a baby isn't? Those are the morals you get from people who make money from addiction.

    You have miunderstood betting it has been suspended not because it is morally wrong because the bookies will lose money as it is very likely to happen e.g. a pregnancy could be announced very soon

    My mistake but could they not just alter the odds to put them in their favour like William Hill are?
