Could they both be heading towards evens?
The chart shows the changing John McCain price on the heavily-traded Betfair betting exchange over the past 24 hours.
There’s no doubt where the money is going – on John McCain who is now at his highest level ever on this market.
My approach to this is to bet against Obama rather than for McCain so you are covered in the event of something untoward happening to the GOP nominee. You would also prosper if, for whatever reason, Obama was umable to complete the course. If this sounds doom-laden it is your money that you are risking.
