On the night after a Superbowl upset, in which some people made major money by betting against the spread, it might be interesting to consider the odds being given on the U.S. Presidential elections. My limited searches suggest that Hillary Clinton is favored to win, followed by John McCain, then Barack Obama. I would welcome suggestions on the best betting websites for these odds making purposes–not that I want to wager money, but just to see what people are willing to put their money on. Here is at least one link http://www.easyodds.com/compareodds/specials/Politics/m/51363-234-3.html.
(Our colleague Steve Levitt suggests backing on the underdog. Good advice for the Superbowl. What about for the election?)
