Bookmakers Bet on Obama

The smart money is on Obama.

Obama!

Okay. It's crazy you can bet on political races.

I mean, think of all the bad shit that could go wrong when you have millions more dollars on the line. Scary. Luckily, Vegas bookmakers are prohibited from taking wagers on political races.

Still, the gambling set is out there doing their thing and the odds are in Obama's favor.

From Forbes.com:

UK bookmaker William hill has listed odds of 1-5 for Obama and 7-2 for Romney. Ladbrokes, the other big UK bookmakers has the same line. ... gamblers are increasingly certain Obama will hang on to the White House.
