The Battleground Blitz: Name the State Romney Wins First
One market you’ll find at Ladbrokes and nowhere else is our Battleground Blitz puzzler. A great bet for anyone thinking of staying up on election night.
Check out the list of states. At the top you’ll see states that look hard for Romney to win.
At the bottom should be certainties for Mitt. In the middle are the battleground states. The question you have to answer is; how far down the list will you have to go before finding a state that Romney wins?
So if Mitt takes Pennsylvania but loses all of the states above that, you’re on a 20/1 winner. Let’s say the results go exactly as Ladbrokes’ current state by state betting suggests. Then Florida will be the winner here, currently a 4/1 shot.
New Hampshire is our worst result at the moment, now an 8/1 shot from the opening 20/1. If Romney takes the Granite State, chances are he’s going to be President.
On the other hand, If you think Obama is going to have a good night, Missouri at 8/1 might be the place to go. You will need Romney to blow out of every single swing stake for it to go that far, but it might only take a small shift to the President to make that happen.
New Jersey 100/1
New Mexico 50/1
New Hampshire 8/1
North Carolina 4/1
None of these 100/1
