There are bookies around the world that take bets on who’s going to win the US Presidential Election. (Not in the US, mind you, where it’s illegal.) Oddsmakers don’t mess around when it comes to accuracy on any topic, so if you want to know who people REALLY think is going to win – when the chips are down – the bookies are where you go.
SO WHAT DO THE ODDSMAKERS & THE BETTING LINES SAY?
- Betting lines have Trump leading GOP at 5-4 w/ Rubio behind him at 2-1. After that there’s no contest with both Jeb Bush & Ted Cruz coming in at a distant 6-1.
- Sorry “feelthebern” progressives but Hilary’s blowing out Bernie at around 9-8 vs anyone else – including Sanders at 4-1.
- Bloomberg’s betting line just came out at a distant 33-1.
