Best Australian Election betting sites

Right below, you can check a shortlist of the top-rated ACT  political betting sites for 2020. This selection is based on the variety of political markets, the number of events and the odds these bookmakers offer. 

Australian Election betting markets

Political betting marketsSportsbooks provide five main markets for betting on the Australian election. Bettors have a vast range of selections, like which party will win the election or which is going to be the next Labor or Liberal Party Leader. 

Federal Election winning Party: Things are pretty clear when we’re talking about which party will win the next Australian elections. The Labor Party is the favorite according to the latest polls. Labors are leading the polls so far, with a percentage close to 40%. The possible scenario is to have a coalition, which is the main favorite. 

Federal Election Labor Leader: In this market, bettors will see a two-horse race. Jim Chalmers is the favorite. His rival is Chris Bowden, with Tanya Plibersek following up as underdog with the power to shake things up in the next Australian election. Chalmers managed to keep a safe distance from his political opponent after the comments about a probable border closure due to the pandemic crisis. 

Federal Election Liberal Leader: The scenery in this market is a bit blurry compared to the latest Australian election. Peter Dutton might be the favorite for the liberal leadership, although he loses his power and popularity with time. Punters know that this ACT election betting "battle" might be a close call. Josh Frydenberg is fighting hard and players may see an interesting electoral overthrow. 

Year of the next General Election: Here, things are pretty much concrete to bet on the Australian election. Something extraordinary should happen for the Australian voters to go to the ballots before 2022. The only way for this to happen is the elected parties not to form a unanimous federal government, which is almost impossible but you’ll never know in the ACT election “field”. 

Number of winning seats: The last market that bettors can find is the number of seat parties will win. Labors and Liberals gather big chances to win 13-15 seats and the Greens are far behind with the Australian election odds of winning 1-2 seats.

Australian Election betting odds

Betting odds

Australian election nominees, Andrew Barr and Shane Rattenbury are still the party leaders. The big difference is that Alistair Coe replaced Jeremy Hanson in the Liberal leadership and that changes the ground in the Australian election odds. Minor parties such as the “GetUp!” lobby has unsuccessfully tried to reduce the power of the three big ones, so Labors, Liberals and Greens are still leading the election betting odds. The main difference regarding the previous ACT election betting “field” is the electoral systems. The last ACT was the first for the enlarged Assembly and many independent nominees saw that as an opportunity but with no success. 

Latest Australian Election polls

The latest polls, compared to the most recent Australian election odds, show that the coalition percentage is at 53%-47%. They have the lead by 36% with the Greens steady at 11%, and in the last position is One Nation with 3%. The Coalition possibility right now is at 1.66 in the ACT election betting area. The COVID pandemic played a significant role in this. The majority of Australians believe that borders must close if things worsen and the premiers don’t have that authority. The main issues that all three parties have to pay attention to health care, tax reform, and indigenous affairs.  

The big debate is about which party will win more seats. The Labor party is favorite for winning 10-12 seats with the Australian election betting odds at 1.75 while simultaneously for the same amount of seats, the Liberals are at 1.65. The Greens are far behind from the other two. The latest Australian election odds show that they will win 1-2 seats at 1.75. The Australian shows very precisely people’s preferences regarding the parties and who makes a better prime minister and you can check these charts here
