Hillary Clintons as underdog for the White House
advantage of the underdog status Hillary Clinton has "enjoyed"
in the past month, punters are flocking to make a bet on the
Democratic candidate to win over rival partyman Barack Obama. In
a surprised twist of events, at the online sportsbook
Bookmaker, the most bet on
event this week is currently the presidential race and the
favorite candidate is Hillary Clinton. According to the bookie,
the majority of the bettors who risk on a candidate to win the
2008 Elections favor Hillary Clinton over Barack Obama, likely
to take advantage of the long odds Clinton holds. Currently at
Bookmaker, the odds on Hillary Clinton to become the next U.S.
President are the worse they have ever been +385 (meaning the
bookmaker will pay out 385 for every 100 risked). For
comparison, Barack Obama, who is the favorite to win the White
House bid, is sitting on -155 and John McCain holds odd of +140.
The only reason for this anomaly is that
the punters are taking the underdogs this week. The second most
bet on event at
Bookmaker is which party will
win the Elections, and surprise, surprise, the punters favor the
Republican party, underdog at +140, while the favorite Democrats
are enjoying -170 and much less action. Among the Democrats
alone, Hillary Clinton is underdog +300 to win the party
nomination and Obama is holding odds of -400. Keep in mind that
the bookmaker will be changing the odds very soon to reflect the
betting action, so lock them in while you can.
