Who to support for the AC show down?

No guesses what I'll be glued to this evening.

It all ends up with the decider: one race, win all, lose all, and hundreds of millions of dollars riding on the result.

But who to support?

Do I back the Australian / British boat (*) with sailing legend Ben Ainslie or those plucky underdogs from New Zealand?

Decision... decisions....

(*) ok, ok, funded by uber-billionaire (and American) Larry Ellison who from this report doesn't seem to be that popular in the industry.

Update: for those that like a bit of number crunching here's a plot of how the aggregate delta in finishing time has changed over the course of the competition:

Looking good for Team Ben Ainslie
