In under 24 hours after online sportsbook Bookmaker.com posted odds on the next car maker to announce a recall, North America’s oldest established online betting site will be paying out on Nissan.

That auto company announced that 2 million of its vehicles will be recalled due to an engine-stalling issue.  It is the third largest recall ever.

Bookmaker.com on Wednesday had published odds of +380 that Nissan would be the next automaker to announce a recall.  The payout is $38 for every $10 bet and $380 for every $100 bet.

Initially, Bookmaker.com made GM the favorite with odds of +250, which would have paid out $25 for every $10 bet or $250 for every $100 bet.

Ford had odds of 4/1 or +400.  Chrysler was at 3/1.

Mercedes had odds of +500 or 5/1.

Just yesterday BMW recalled 130,000 vehicles just yesterday. 

That recall affects the following models:

* 2007–2010 model year 335i models

* 2008–2010 model year 135i, 535i and X6 xDrive35i Sports Activity Coupes

* 2009–2010 model year Z4 Roadster sDrive35i
