Since Dave Sharma won the Liberal party pre-selection for the Wentworth by-election a massive 51% of the money placed has supported a Liberal victory.

That margin is just shy of their overall hold so far which stands at 55% for a election where they are the $1.65 favourite with Sportsbet.

Labor ($3.00) have only attracted 16% of the money since the pre-selection but have received 21% of the total so far.
