Clinton Favourite But Can She Win Third Debate?
THE BETTING PATTERN for the US Presidential Election seems to be mirroring that for the EU Referendum, say bookmakers William Hill as they launched their list of bets for the final debate between Clinton and Trump,making Clinton 1/3 favourite to 'win' it, with Trump 9/4.
'It was the case that consistently throughout the EU Referendum campaign, some two thirds of the money gambled was for 'Remain', but in terms of individual bets, it was around two thirds for 'Leave'. And now the stats currently show 71% of all the money gambled on either Clinton or Trump is for Hillary, but 65% of all bets placed are for Trump' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe, as Hills cut Trump's odds from 11/2 (15% chance) at the weekend to a current level of 4/1(20% chance).
Hillary Clinton remains hot favourite at 1/6, but has been as short as 1/9.
'In straight bookmaking terms we have to be big Trump supporters as he currently represents a six figure loss in our overall market!' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
