Greens’ odds crunched to win Batman by-election

Punters with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au have jumped on the Greens to win the upcoming Batman by-election.

The Greens opened at odds of $1.80 but have been backed into $1.22 following close to 90% of the money being placed on the party.

One punter placed a $1,000 bet at odds of $1.50 on the Greens.

Labor meanwhile have drifted massively to hold their seat from $2.00 out to $4.00 with the largest bet to date $125 at odds of $2.25.

“The Greens have pulled massively ahead in the betting to win Batman and if the betting reflects the polling on the day then we’re looking at a landslide victory,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne
