Oxford have emerged as clear favourites to win the Boat Race after more than 70% of bets were placed on the Dark Blues, according to bookmaker William Hill.
Spokesman Joe Crilly said: "Oxford are certainly the best backed crew as of yet, although that was very much the case at this stage of proceedings last year.
"Last year, however, we took nearly £40,000 on the day of the race and Cambridge became best backed by the time the race started. Maybe history will repeat itself this time around."
