2016 looks set to be the biggest year in political betting history, with the US Presidential Election taking centre-stage plus various big contests in the UK. Here, for @BetfairExchange, I look forward to six particularly exciting markets.
US Presidential Election – Republican Nominee
There’s no question which country’s politics will produce the most betting action during 2016. The US Presidential Election already seems certain to be the biggest political betting event of all-time.
The main reason behind an unprecedented amount of early public interest is Donald Trump. It seems everyone has an opinion about the controversial billionaire, and in the primary race to be the Republican Nominee, we have a chance to put our money where our mouths are.
