PUNTERS SAY YES TO MARRIAGE EQUALITY

The odds for a yes victory in the same sex marriage postal vote have been drastically cut following strong punter support according to Sportsbet.

The online bookmaker has cut a yes result from odds of $1.40 into $1.18 as close to double the amount of wagers back that outcome in comparison to a no victory.

No is now a $4.00 outsider, drifting out from $2.80.

Meanwhile Alan Joyce’s generous donation to the yes campaign is not expected to be topped. He’s $1.10 ahead of Ellen DeGeneres ($3.00) to make the largest contribution.

“We’ve shortened the odds of a yes victory considerably in the past 48 hours off the back of strong punter support,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
