New York Ralphie, don't worry too much about your retirement plan.
An offshore gambling company on Thursday listed "The Sopranos" character Ralph Cifaretto as most likely to be whacked during the upcoming season. The season premiere is Sunday on HBO.
Cifaretto is listed at 5/6 odds by BetWWTS.com, an Antigua-based oddsmaker. That means bettors have to put up $6 to win $5.
Uncle Junior, whose cancer is in remission, is listed at 8/5 odds. A bettor would win if the character dies of natural causes ï¿½ not that it happens too often in a mob family.
Next on the list is Furio Giunta, the pony-tailed muscleman, at 2/1 odds.
Paulie Walnuts and Christopher Moltisanti are listed at 3/1 and 4/1, respectively. How about the boss himself? The company says there are 10/1 odds that Tony Soprano will swim with the fishes.
