Betting on the Russian election looks like a case of Putin your money in and taking it out if you’re willing to take the shortest of prices for Vladimir Putin to win.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has the current President at $1.01, or in betting vernacular – a sure thing, but what role will his comrade Donald Trump play in getting him re-elected?
A relatively short $2.30 says Trump will tweet @ Putin during the campaign, and the US President is $7.00 to campaign in person.
“$1.01 may not be better than bank interest, but you won’t find a bigger certainty in betting than Vladimir Putin to win the Russian election in March,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
