John McCain odds
to win the 2008 Election
A couple of days left until the final showdown between the
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and the
Republican candidate John McCain, ultimately decided by the
people, it's time to look at the odds on the later to win the
2008 Election. Polls give the lead to Barack Obama, but the
presidential odds offered by the sportsbooks are the best
indicator for us on how the election is going for John McCain -
not good at all.
The GOP representative John McCain is
trailing behind Obama at the online sportsbook
Bodog with underdog odds +400.
For those of you who don't know how to read odds, it means that
the bookmaker will pay out $400 on every $100 wagered. Compared
to the Obama's odds, which at this time are -800 ( bettors must
risk $800 to win $100) and the picture is quite grim for John
McCain. The spread of various rumors and labeling of Barack
Obama helped the Republican none throughout the campaigning,
although in the past week we have seen a slight improvement in
the McCain's odds to win the 2008 Election. John McCain used to
be +600 underdog just the last week and although his current
+400 is quite an improvement, it remains far from indicating any
serious competition on Tuesday.
