Federal Election 2022 Big Bets

One punter will be on excellent terms with themselves as the election campaign goes into the final days, having had $15,000 on Labor to win the election at $1.91 with TopSport, Australia’s leading election bookmaker.

With Labor now into $1.45 favouritism for Saturday’s poll, they look like collecting a tidy profit of more than $13,000 if Anthony Albanese and company sweep into office.

On the other hand, a TopSport customer who had $10,000 on the Coalition to retain office at $1.57 will be more than a little nervous given the odds and the polls. Scott Morrison and team are out to $2.75 now, meaning that if the punter had waited they could have potentially made a $17,500 profit.

Other big election bets include $5,000 on Labor at $2.45, $5,000 on Labor at $1.85 and $5,000 on Labor at $1.80.

Big bets on the Coalition are harder to come by, but one loyal punter invested $5,000 on the government to be returned at $3.00.

Another big bet indicates the Coalition are in for a tough night in New South Wales. TopSport took a bet of $3,200 on the Coalition to win 20 or less seats in the Premier State at odds of $1.95. The Coalition has 21 NSW seats heading into Saturday’s poll, meaning that the punter is predicting a net loss for the conservative side of politics.

At the electorate level, the biggest bet has been on Liberal Dave Sharma to retain Wentworth, $2,000 being bet at odds of $2.05. Sharma is attempting to hold Malcolm Turnbull’s old seat against independent Allegra Spender, and the incumbent has firmed back into favouritism at $1.80 on the strength of that large wager.
