NEW YORK, NY, Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ - Sportsbook.com says bettors are zeroing in on Vice President Cheney as the next American President. The world's largest online sportsbook and casino has seen a significant rise in wagering on Vice President Dick Cheney as the likely winner of the presidential race in 2008. Odds on Cheney have improved from 100-1, when betting on presidential candidates opened in May, to 20-1 currently. The increase in betting activity comes in the wake of recent media coverage of Vice President Cheney's chances of winning the Republican nomination during the 2008 primaries. Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward said yesterday that it is 'highly likely' Cheney will take his shot at the White House. The Vice President is widely seen as the most powerful figure in George W. Bush's cabinet and the mastermind behind many of the administration's major policy initiatives. Hillary Clinton continues to be the betting favorite for the Democrats. Odds on Senator Clinton have moved from 6-1 to 7-2. Despite Cheney's improving odds, former New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani remains the Republican favorite with 10-1 odds. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has gone from 15-1 to 25-1 odds. Barack Obama, Illinois Senator and darling of the Democratic Party, has also seen his stock decline and now sits as a 70-1 favorite from an opening line of 30-1. "Wagering on the US presidential election continues to evolve alongside the ever-changing world of American politics," says Alex Czajkowski, Marketing Director, Sportsbook.com. "Bettors are very much in tune with media reports and analyses of potential presidential candidates." Adding to the fun and challenge, Sportsbook.com is offering odds on a number of less likely presidential candidates from film director Michael Moore to conservative news personality Bill O'Reilly and California Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
