Australian Elections

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Uh oh! Is Labor in trouble?

Abbott out. Dutton in. Barnaby in and calling it a coalition win.. 44% of vote counted.. too early to tell?

Breaking bad.
Very slim chance Western Australia will swing it for labor, but I doubt that will happen. (Too many PerthGuys and pineapples)

Labor has no hope now. Coalition may have a to form a minority government though.

Latest Sportsbet prices;

Labour $1.10
Coalition $7.00
Sportsbet paid out $1.3 mil on Labor for the win on Wednesday or Thursday I think. And with no major fuck ups from Shorten it looks like it's over. Most polling had it tighter.

Let me know if they've got a spread on at the embassy and I'll pop in again...
So, did the bookies get a 'flogging' or did they make a killing?

The straight answer;
The bookies always make a profit if they frame their prices right.

The punters conspiracy theory;
Sportsbet paid out Aus$1.3 mill (on a $1 mill bet on Labor.) on Thursday. Two days before the election. It was supposed to be that certain.
The straight-heads say this was a legitimate promo stunt, just to stimulate turnover.

But some punters say that Sportsbet had seen the fastidious private polling that the two parties were doing every day. Having this inside information they figured that Labor would loose - so they sucked everybody in to take the "sure thing" 15-25% profit.
"Ah hell, if Sportsbet is gonna pay out $1.3 mill even before the election is held, then it must be a certainty, eh"

Either way, straight or shifty, you can be sure the bookies made their killing.
