Ron Paul Odds Slashed Dramatically: 15 to 1 from 200 to 1

Ron Paul Odds Slashed Dramatically: 15 to 1 from 200 to 1

Carrie Stroup here with some startling news concerning Ron Paul.  Sportsbook.com (see website here) had experienced such a dramatically insurgence of betting action on Mr. Paul over the past two weeks they were forced to slash odds from 200 to 1 to the current 15 to 1 odds.

"Ron Paul is a serious contender whose grass roots campaign is growing dramatically," explains Payton O'Brien, Senior Editor of Gambling911.com, one of the world's leading political betting news sources.  "No other single candidate for US President has received the type of interest generated here at Gambling911.com."

Case in point, articles on Ron Paul in some cases generated four times the amount of interest than both Hillary Clinton and Rudolph Giuliani articles combined.

Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés in her piece for The Moderate Voice questions whether Paul will jump to the third party, something the folks at Sportsbook.com are watching closely as well since 15 to 1 odds still offer a  tremendous payout for gamblers ($1500 for every $100 bet should he win)

"Could Ron Paul’s freshest strategy be to keep showing up for all his party’s nominee debates, bringing his message out over and over again… and then, near the midnight hour, maybe suddenly say, You know what guys? I’m booking. I’m going to run Third Party.

Stroup continues to monitor Ron Paul betting odds along with
all other US Presidential candidates.

"A lot of people right now, seem to be thinking it might make stark sense to vote third party. All across the blogplanet one can read post after post from writers on the left, right and middle, fed up with two parties who’re coughing a 2 cylinder engine up the mountain of US woes, while loudly proclaiming they’re running a finned Hemi. Many people think they look and act the same. Only different colored socks. Maybe."

Representatives from Sportsbook.com agree that the backing of Paul is has been significant enough to shorten odds to what might very well amount to the biggest slashing in online gambling history.

"Read all the blogs, the Ron Paul news forums, and you'll see people saying they have either placed bets or considered placing bets on their favorite candidate at those high odds," a Sportsbook.com representative told Gambling911.com late Wednesday.  "We will likely be slashing odds further in the coming weeks and quite possibly days since Ron Paul's momentum is really building."

For online gamblers a win would mean more than just money in one's own pocket.  Ron Paul is the only candidate with 20 to 1 or better odds of becoming the next US President who supports legalized online gambling.  A handful of his colleagues, including Senator Jon Kyl of Arizona, attached an measure to curb some forms of online gambling to an unrelated port security act. 

Paul considered the act "underhanded" and a perfect example of what is wrong with today's political system.  Paul was also one of the few who had no other choice but to vote against the port security act due to the slimy tactics used during the waning days of Congressional session last October in getting the measure passed into law.

A long shot. But less of a longshot than he was.

Those gambling people really like him. If he manages to mention their issues out on the campaign trail or in debates, the money will roll in.

I’m surprised that he is even getting 200 to 1, albeit, I think the odds are better that every other person will have a heart attack and drop out, the odds will still be against him...

Besides normal conservative issues that he’s right on the mark on, he wants to return to the gold standard, removal of the US from the world bank, decommission the fed, stop funding Israel, and pull all troops from bases around the world back to the US... basically, a 1900 conservative.

Paul's not a cut-and-runner.

He's the strongest pro-Constitution official in the last 100 years.

This nut wants the U.S. to cut and run from Iraq, he wants us to abandon Israel, and he wants to get rid of the Patriot Act.

What are his plans for defeating the Islamofascists? To me, it sounds like he wants to surrender. Prove me wrong.

This is BS! Ron Paul activists are playing flying monkey all over the net to increase the appearance that he is a serious candidate instead of the crank he really is.

As a matter of fact the net is the only place his campaign is having an effect.

I believe he voted for the war in Afghanistan and wanted congress to declare war, just like the Constitution specifies.

The BIG difference is that Paul would have the battlefield moved to within our borders instead of us defining where the battlefield is.. I'm sure he would fight, but the expense to American lives would be much greater.

He should pick up some Sun Tzu for reading and sit down for a chat with Tommy Franks.

I’m not a Paul supporter, but domestically, his policies are a lot closer to mainline conservative FReeperdom than not. He’s fanatically small-government, pro-life, and for strong border enforcement (those last two put him at odds with a lot of other libertarians). He’s further “out there” on those planks than a lot of folks here, but all in all, in terms of limiting the size and scope of government, I don’t think he’d be out of place posting on FR.

As for his foreign policy...well, I’m not going to call him a kook, I just tend to respectfully disagree. I don’t think he’s got a solid grasp of what the Islamofascist threat means to us and how impossible they are to buy off or reason with. He’s right to a point about “what goes around comes around”, but these nutters are going to be coming after us sooner or later regardless of “blowback” or not. If dealing with rational actors, Paul’s kind-of-isolationist policy might make sense...but not with Islam.
