Pinnacle had odds posted on this very briefly last week. Does anyone know the current odds and where one can bet on them? Thanks.

Romney is about 1-4. Santorum at 4-1, Gingrich at 20-1, Paul at 27-1, and Jeb Bush at 50-1.

Thanks, I'd love to get some of Romney at -400. Do you know any books that offer these lines?

Thanks. Are those guys reliable? I don't want to get messed around about payouts, WSEX almost screwed me a couple of years ago.

What do you guys think of betfair? Do they pay? Cheers.

Good odds on Paul.
He probably won't get the vote but if the youngsters hit the polls he may stand a chance.

Ron Paul is likely to end his campaign in the next week. He's already hinted that if he didn't win Maine he would be out.

I see Gingrich as a much better bet than Paul, and his odds are almost identical. Why? He's likely to sweep the south on Super Tuesday.

You got to be kidding ! 1,000/1 odds on Paul would suck. He's 78 years old and has been doing this for many years now. My brother has a better chance than this guy.

I stand corrected but He'll be 77 prior to election day which is the age Reagan was after serving 8 years as President. What does how fast He can run have to do with anything ? I'm not making any bad statements about his politics because I support many of his beliefs. I'm simply saying that He will not be the Republican nominee ever and 27/1 odds are ridiculously poor odds. You could no doubt get 1,000,000,000 odds on kermit16 winning the Masters this year but it would still be a terrible wager !

Although I hate trying to predict what will happen in politics, I have a feeling if you are betting anybody other than Romney you'll be wasting your money. The republican base wants him. And what the republican base wants the republican base usually gets. These republican movements like the Tea Party and others are helpful in electing Congressmen, but when it comes to higher stakes offices like the Presidency, the people with the wealth and power ultimately decide the candidate. Santorum or Gingrich will do well in the very conservative southern states, and probably Texas too. But when they start heading north and northwest with these elections where people could care less that he's a morman, Romney is going to start sweeping these states. The other two candiates could steal one or two states and we actually see a brokered election. But I have my doubts that will even happen.

I agree with you but I think Santorum has staying power as his supporters are very dedicated. Lots of polls are showing him right up there with Romney. Santorum at + 400 is the only value I see and it's not enough to get me there. Give me 27/1 wager on Santorum and I'm in big time.:lolBIG: BTW The last time I looked, Colorado and Minnesota weren't in the South ! !

The "sharp" money is running around showing Romney tickets they bet a long time ago. Hes next to a lock at this point. Give Santorum 10 more days and they will finish him off just like all the other contenders before him. The voting is rigged so im surprised they are even taking bets, its worse than the WWF. Just supposing something like the Big H happens to Romney the next clown in line is Jeb Bush. So if u want to get like 50-1 that Romney does have the Big H this summer then bet Bush, otherwise its over..
