The Obama Dividend

GIVEN that the Billabong’s bank account took a beating over the weekend, a direct consequence of the Western Bulldogs’ refusal to fire born loser Rodney Eade and the Hawks’ third-quarter failure of will, skill and Cyril Rioli's hamstring, astute punters will quite probably prefer to look elsewhere for their investment advice.

That said, the odds is offering on a Republican ousting Obama at the end of next year are simply too good to pass up. Get on it now, before the bookmaker wakes up.

  1. Dear Professor Bunyip,

    As a professional punter I can assure you that the odds on offer from Sportingbet are quite poor at their current price of $2.30 for the Republicans to win the 2012 election.

    On Betfair you can easily get $2.70 and, given there's been solid support for the Democrats for the last few months which has seen the Republicans ease from just over $2, I'd suggest that they'll go out to a bigger price.

    Note that you should bet with your head and not your heart. Money doesn't know the difference.

    Cheers - Jack

    PS - the prices available from sporting bookmakers provide a very accurate guide to the chances of each side so it's tough to make money betting on the winner straight out.
