A few days post-budget, Sportsbet payouts suggest the Coalition is more likely than Labor to win the forthcoming federal election. Other betting firms are not indicating support for the Coalition – it is close to an even money bet. But as as Tim Blair shows, they all suggest the budget has improved the Coalition’s election chances.

    Puzzling behaiour – the betting market should have anticipated a free-spending budget and priced it in in advance. I can only think that some punters weren’t paying attention.

    I think the odds for Labor are generous – they should be a clear favourite now.

    Derrida, I was going to put $1000 on Labor a month ago – they then paid better than even money. I thought if they won (on balance likely) I would get a financial reward whereas if they lost I would be blessed with better government.

    But I now think it will be a close election – I don’t want to throw my money away. I’ll wait.

    BTW – the budget was not so free-spoending given the income receipts.
