Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party favourites to snare Cootamundra from the Nationals in Byelection
Byelection comes after Nationals MP Katrina Hodgkinson announced her retirement.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has installed the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party as $1.60 favourites to win the Cootamundra Byelection.
Nationals MP Katrina Hodgkinson’s retirement looks set to cost them the seat according to the odds, with the Nationals considered a $2.50 chance.
Labor is only fourth in line in the betting at $12 behind the Outdoor Recreation Party at $10.
“We’ve seen some decent swings against the government in previous byelections this year so the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party would fancy their chances of picking up Cootamundra,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
