The next Federal election will take place in 2018 according to the betting from online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.

2018 is the $1.25 favourite but 2019 is actually the best supported by punters at odds of $3.00 – this year pays $15.

Labor are the $1.50 favourite to win with the Coalition paying odds of $2.55 – 76% of money wagered to date has been on Labor.

“The citizenship saga has raised a lot of early election talk and the odds agree with that sentiment, suggesting we’ll be heading off to the polls next year,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
