Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au today received the largest bet to date on the election with a $50,150 wager on the Coalition to win at odds of $1.33.
The punter stands to collect $65,195 should Malcolm Turnbull be returned as PM and follows the previous largest bet of $30,000 placed two weeks ago.
Sportsbet have now cut the odds on the Coalition winning the election for the first time since May 18th from $1.30 into $1.28.
The largest bet on Labor is only $1,400 although there has been significantly more individual bets placed on Bill Shorten’s team but their price drifts from $3.50 out to $3.70.
“It’s quite a significant bet so this punter is obviously confident that Malcolm will lead his party to victory on July 2nd,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
