Newt to win +650 (That's down from 33/1 last week)

If you stagger Newt and Mitt appropriately, that computes to +200 on the pair, which sounds amazing.

Alternately obama is available at constructed +150 odds on the electoral count at one of my books.

Taking obama +150 & Mitt/Newt +200 is a pretty nice hedge.

THE QUESTION IS: What is the chance that neither M/N get the nomination? The most obvious way is that RS or RP win the nomination.......but that isn't happening. Secondarily and probably more likely is that it gets so heated between M/N that neither has enough delegates and they nominate someone else.

I know the likelihood of that is low, but how exactly does that work?

explain your swiss cheese roulette/partial hedge for -274 odda

This clown continues to get all knotted up over an easy winner.
Where in this entire thread do I state what bet I made? Do I need a restraining order against this tool? He's a stalker and displays ghey impulse repeatedly plus he acknowledges 'circle jerk' behavior with his imaginary friends at the mental hospital and man love for someone he adoringly calls Slim.

That isn't to win outright, that's to win with less than 329 delegates and integrates three distinct pricing levels (+400, +700, +1400) which is +155.

so what was the final count?

the fact that you have to be so insulting to  me on your own vitriol free thread says it all...

No. The thread was initially vitriol free until you became a hemorrhoid. Your highlighted text is a real comment on your dogged stupidity but fails to confirm the bet I made.

because I am not attacking you at all or anyone for that matter...  not sure what this has to do with you?

but i figure you will do what you normally do and run like a coward after intrusively sticking your long nose into other people's business
