Republicans Odds-On To Go For Brokered

Bookmakers William Hill have shortened their odds about a brokered convention being used to decide on the Republican Presidential candidate, and have cut the price about that happening from 5/4 (stake 4 for profit of 5) to 5/6 (stake 6 for profit of 5) making it an odds-on shot.

'At one point we were offering 2/1 (stake 1 for profit of 2) about a brokered convention, but our clients seem to be confident that it is now a very likely scenario' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
