Punters Nick value on Clegg in Leaders' Debate
Political punters have decided that Nick Clegg will win the first of the public debates, and backed him down from 9/4 to 2/1 with William Hill.
"Punters are coming out of the woodwork to back Nick Clegg and plunging three figure bets on him as though defeat is out of the question - they must believe he has been very well briefed and is going in with nothing to lose and everything to gain," said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
David Cameron remains Even money favourite with Hills who have shunted Gordon Brown out from 9/4 to 5/2 outsider of the three.
"If Gordon Brown were a racehorse punters would be treating him like a non-trier, we can't attract any significant money for him at all," said Sharpe.
