Labor narrowly ahead of Best Party in SA Election betting

Nick Xenophon
Nick Xenophon’s South Australian Team Best is closing on the Labor Party in betting on the State Election.

We’re sure Nick Xenophon is keeping a close eye on the betting for the South Australian State Election, and he will like what he is seeing from his newly-formed Best Party.

The anti-gambling crusaders party is locked in a three-way tussle with Labor and Liberal in what is shaping as one of the tightest races ever seen and that is clearly reflected by the betting.

Online bookmaker Sportsbet.com.au has Labor as the $2.25 favourites with SA Best close behind on $2.55 and the Liberals not ruled out on $2.85.

But in terms of the hold of money wagered, Labor lead the way with 54% of total money placed, the Liberals have 36% and SA Best the remaining 10%.

“The odds indicate a close result but the punters are clearly predicting a Labor win as they hold more than SA Best and the Liberals combined,’’ said the bookies’ representative Will Byrne.

Liberals favoured to win Tasmanian Election

The Liberal party is favourites to take 12 seats in the Tasmanian State Election this Saturday according to online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.

Labor is tipped to take 10 seats and with 2 likely to go to the Greens, as to which way the final seat will go – the bookies have it as too hotly contested to call.

“We’ve got the individual count in the seat betting putting Will Hodgman’s Liberal party as favourite in 12 seats, Labor with 10 and the Greens with 2. It’s looking more than likely that Tasmania could be headed for a hung parliament,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Ella Zampatti.

The seats

Bass
Liberals are favoured to win three seats at $1.85 with the remaining two tipped to go to Labor at $1.25, with no seat for the Greens a $1.80 chance.

Braddon
Liberals are $1.60 to pick up three seats and Labor $1.27 for the other two. Greens are again tipped to pick up no seats at $1.24.

Denison
Labor ($1.50) and the Liberals ($1.55) are both tipped to win two seats each in Denison, with the Greens favoured for one seat at $1.08.

Lyons
It’s looking likely that both Labor ($1.42) and Liberals ($1.70) will both pick up two seats in Lyons, with no seats for the Greens a $1.70 chance.

Franklin
Labor and the Liberals are both tipped to take two seats in Franklin at $1.20 and $1.50 respectively. Greens are a $1.11 chance for one seat.
