Few gambles on Northern Ireland outcome

Betfair is very quiet on the Northern Irish elections. Only five constituencies are even mentioned and at the moment there’s only been activity in two of those: East Antrim and Fermanagh/South Tyrone. Someone got in early and put money on Michelle Gildernew at the half decent odds of 6/4. It’s now gone down to 1/17. That’s partly because there’s no money going into any of the Northern Ireland races. In the past (in volume markets at least) Betfair’s been a good predictor for the final results. We’ll keep a weather eye on it! And keep you posted!!

You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here.
