Sportsbet has declared the federal election a one-horse race and we’re paying out all bets on the Coalition nine days before Australia goes to the polls.
We’re so confident of a landslide Coalition victory for Tony Abbott and his team, we’ve paid out more than $1.5 million in bets to our members – a first in Australian federal election history.
I’ve never heard of this happening before.
Sportsbet got 147 of the 150 electorates right in 2010. They currently show as favourites Coalition for 90 seats, Labor for 56.
Tim Blair also has the best line of the campaign from Tony Abbott:
If you want to know my character, ask my colleagues. If you want to know Mr Rudd’s character, ask his colleagues.
Food for thought for some people in NZ Labour?
