The USA Presidential Election OddsPublished November 6, 2012
Betting, voting - today.
William Hill, a leading UK bookmaker, is gearing up for an extremely tight US Presidential Race on November 6, 2012. This popular bookmaker comprises 2,350 betting shops across the UK, and continental Europe. Punters looking to place bets on either the incumbent – President Barack Obama – or Governor Mitt Romney will find generous betting odds available at William Hill Sports.
Three debates featured both candidates going head-to-head against one another. Governor Romney performed superbly to defeat Barack Obama in the first debate, while Obama bested Romney in the second presidential debate. The third debate was largely viewed as a tie, with little differences between the two candidates on foreign policy
Presidential Politicking in Nevada?
Betting pundits across Nevada will be unable to place wagers at William Hill's kiosks or sports books. And the reason for this, is that William Hill did not seek regulatory approval to post betting odds for bets on the 2012 US Presidential Election. The odds for punters on a Romney/Ryan ticket for the White House moved from 4-1 to 11-4. And for the incumbent to win re-election the odds moved from 1-7 to 1-4.
Naturally this boosted the morale of the Romney/Ryan ticket, and it is evident that the three debates have proven that this is certainly not a walk in the park for Obama. Pundits can find pretty even spreads on either the Democrats or the Republican contender, with top betting odds available on specific selections.

Other specialty bets include 100 - 1 odds of Rory McIlroy being named BBC Sports Personality of the Year for 2012.
