I'll take that bet, at least on your statement that "criminal law & common law have nothing in common", because you're flat-out wrong. Common law is the basis of the legal system in the UK. This includes "criminal law", as well as civil law, which is probably what you were thinking of.

How much are you going to pay me, and when?
You win! Even though much has been codified into statute in more recent times, it all still exists:
