Punters with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au have picked Adelaide to be the city with the hottest temperature this summer.

32% of total wagers have been placed on the City of Churches at odds of $2.50 ahead of 30% riding on Perth at $3.00.

Sydney has attracted just one single bet of $50 at odds of $6.00 – despite cracking 43 degrees in pre-summer.

Sportsbet has also reduced the odds on a new record temperature being reached from $5.00 into $4.20 on the back of weather analysts predicting a summer scorcher ahead.

“If our punters are right about this summer then Adelaide won’t be the City of Churches anymore but more like hell on earth,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
