ST. JOHN'S, Antigua and Barbuda, June 8 (UPI) -- Odds-makers for two Caribbean-based betting Web sites say the smart money is on Tony Soprano surviving the series finale of "The Sopranos" on HBO Sunday.

Online gambling sites Bodog.com, based in Antigua, and Betus.com, based in Costa Rica, are taking bets on the survival of the drama's other fictitious mobsters as well, including Silvio Dante, Paulie "Walnuts" Gualtieri or New York crime boss Phil Leotardo, the Washington Post reported Friday.

"Being the final episode of what is very likely the last ever season of 'The Sopranos,' everyone is itching to know what's going to happen," Bodog founder Calvin Ayre told the newspaper.

Gamblers on both Web sites can wager on who will be killed first -- Tony or Phil -- or if either will be whacked. Betus's oddsmakers are favoring a longer life for Tony, played by actor James Gandolfini.

But the angles are covered. "If both are killed, winner will be determined by whoever is killed first in the show, regardless of flashbacks or non-linear story telling," Betus.com said.
