Australia hosts a Federal Election every four years with the next Election to take place on May 18th, 2019.
Federal Election Betting
Heading into any Federal Election in Australia there is always a lot of attention on the odds that bookmakers list each of the parties as they have become arguably the best indicator for each party, even more so than the polls.
In Australia there are basically only two parties who can win government, those being the ALB (Australian Labor Party) and the LNP (Liberal National Party).
The two parties dominate the betting in each election but there are other parties in the market, they are the Greens, Australian Conservatives and One Nation, Shooters, Fishers and Farmers, United Australia Party, Centre Alliance, Katter’s Australian Party, Christian Democratic Party.
Federal Election Seats Betting
Not only can you bet on which party will win the Election, bookmakers offer markets on certain seats to be won. Online bookmakers Sportsbet, BetEasy and Ladbrokes offer the most markets for punters to bet on individual seats which can provide more value than backing a certain party to win.
