Daniel Andrews will be the most eager of the two leaders to get the election over and done with tomorrow according to online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
With Labor the short $1.13 favourite to win the election, and Sportsbet having already paid out on their victory, Andrews is expected to cast his vote first at $1.70 ahead of Napthine at $2.05.
His zealousness looks justified, as Denis is a $2.50 favourite to make his conceding speech between 7pm and 8pm on Saturday night at $2.50.
The count being drawn out into the early hours of Sunday is a large outsider in the market, after midnight paying $15.
Sportsbet are also betting on the tie colours chosen by the two leaders but don’t expect any flamboyant decisions as both of their parties colours (Red & Blue) are $1.10 shots.
“We’ll obviously be watching the results with great interest after paying out over $100,000 early but thankfully the odds indicate the count will be over quicker than a Black Caviar race,” said sportsbet.com.au‘s Will Byrne.
