Further to my earlier musing on political betting odds (courtesy of the Political Betting Blog), it now seems that the odds against Labour taking the Glenrothes by-election on Nov 6th have shortened considerably, from 7/4 to 5/6 – level pegging with SNP whose odds have lengthened accordingly. Only Betfair seem to be offering a different take.
More intriguing is the betting on McCain, on whom I put a pony last weekend at 17/2 against. Centrebet, who offered 17/2 are now offering 5/1, while only Ladbrokes are still offering anything like a decent price on McCain.
Fingers crossed. Come on Grandad Chip.
I didn’t put any money on Labour to take Glenrothes, back when 7/4 was on the cards. Even though it would have been sweet to make some money out of those bastards, I couldn’t even stand the thought of cheering were they to succeed.
