It’s the only gambling event where you can actually help your bet get home. The Australian Federal Election is on this Saturday, 18th May and just like those slimy politicians you can make some money out of it.
At current time, the election appears to be all Bill Shorten and the Labor Party. The bookies are rarely wrong on election betting, though they were wrong on the 2016 U.S. Election. And I made a motza out of President Trump’s shock victory!
All the major online betting agencies that Big Kooka visited this morning have Labor as very short priced favourites. The best price you can get for Bill Shorten and his new brand of Australian Socialism is $1.15. All signs are that the Australian public is dumber and more gullible than we here at Conservative Kookaburra thought.
If you were to have a punt on a Scott Morrison – Liberal/National Coalition win, you can get odds of $5.75 at some outlets. A cunning type might tell all his mates about these odds and urge them to get in on the game.
Below are some images of the juicy odds being offered around by betting agencies. Don’t forget to vote this Saturday.
Not all betting agencies were offering online bets for the minor parties. At Bet365 punters were told to phone in.
Online betting newcomers Ned’s were offering the lowest odds of a Coalition victory, but were on par with odds offered for a Bill Shorten #CommunistLeft uprising.
BetEasy has matched the odds offered by Bet365.
For desperate there is even betting offered on specific electorates. Unfortunately, you may not be able to bet on your electorate as some areas – like where Big Kooka resides – are static.
