Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has released odds for the upcoming NSW by-elections to be held on Saturday Oct 14th with two seats very much up for grabs.
In Murray, the National party are the $1.72 favourites but are closely followed in the betting by the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers party on $2.10.
The Shooters, Fishers and Farmers are also in the running in Cootamundra on $1.72, slightly behind the National party who are the $1.67 favourite.
Blacktown is viewed to be a safe Labor win, Stephen Bali the short $1.02 favourite to win the seat.
“The Shooters, Fishers and Farmers have the big parties in their sights according to the betting and could potentially have two seats when votes are counted,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
