John Alexander has fired in the battle of Bennelong from $1.80 into $1.75 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
The Liberal candidate is facing fierce competition for the seat from former NSW Premier Kristina Keneally who has drifted from $1.90 out to $1.95.
So far punters have narrowly placed more money on Alexander than Keneally but it’s an extremely close contest.
“Bennelong is very much a seat in play since Kristina Keneally entered the race but so far the money is on Alexander to retain the usually safe Liberal seat,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
