William Hill Betting Odds on Cardinals eligible for Papal Election. Sistine Chapel and Chimney.

Chimney scaffolding is worryingly close to Michelangelo's frescos.

The Sistine Chapel is where the Pope says Mass every day. It is famous for the frescos of Michelangelo and Botticelli. Michelangelo finished the ceiling in 1512.


William Hill has the latest betting odds. Cardinal Pell's odds, from Australia, have gone down from 66-1 to 50-1. He successfully hosted Pope Benedict XVI and a wonderful World Youth Day in Sydney, 2008. Update: William Hill was well-informed, as the eventual winner Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Pope Francis, was in the top ten.
