Hilary Clinton favored to be next U.S. president

Nov 12, 2013 |
Action is coming in overseas on who will be the next American president and Secretary of State Hilary Clinton is the odds-on favorite.

William Hill has Clinton at 2-1, Ladbrokes had her at 9-4 and Paddy Power had her at 15-8. One $2,400 wager at William Hill moved Clinton down from 5-2 according to a report in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Good news for sports bettors is New Jersey governor Chris Christie is the second favorite.

“This bet on Hillary Clinton, together with a run of support for (New Jersey Gov.) Chris Christie, reducing his odds from 20-1 to 10-1, seems to signal the presidential race coming under starter’s orders as far as political punters are concerned,” William Hill spokesman Graham Sharpe said.

Betting on elections is illegal in Nevada.
