Federal election: Bookies predict who will win our seats
IF YOU get in quick, you could make a quick buck if any of the minor parties manage to win the federal seats of Dawson or Capricornia.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison called the federal election this morning and within minutes bookies had predicted Labor would nab both marginal seats.
Online betting agency Sportsbet has the party as a favourite in 94 of the 151 federal electorates. While their competitor Ladbrokes has also favoured Labor, they will pay returns of $1.17 to Sportsbet's $1.60.
In the Capricornia electorate, punters are able to hedge their bets against the five running parties on both sites. But those wanting to bet on Dawson are only able to choose between the Greens, Labor and the Coalition on Ladbrokes.
Sportsbet punters who put a neat $100 on Katter's Australian Party Dawson candidate Brendan Bunyan would stand to make more than $4000 if Mr Bunyan won the seat.
Both agencies have predicted Pauline Hanson's One Nation candidates Deb Lawson (Dawson) and Wade Rothery (Capricornia) are more likely to win either seat than the Greens.
With Labor pegged to win Government at return odds of $1.17, Ladbrokes has the Coalition's odds at $5.
On the outside, Pauline Hanson's One Nation sits with odds at $251 to win government while the Australian Conservatives and the Greens both sit at odds of $301.
