Is there a betting market for whether there’s life in the outer solar system? (eg in Europa’s oceans?)

When I looked at astronomy books from the 70s or early 80s as a kid, my impression was that people thought they had a fairly good idea of what was in the (observable) Universe. Since the recent launch of the Hubble space telescope, other satellites and planetary missions, our view of the Universe has expanded enormously – even the breadth of different kinds of objects is more than what people imagined (eg see http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.cfm?release=2006-129 for a story on a Jupiter-like gas giant that keeps one side to its sun, and the other away from it).
