Coalition to blitz Labor by 50 seats, says Sportsbet

ONLINE gambling operation Sportsbet.com.au has forecast a federal election whitewash, with the Coalition taking 97 seats to Labor's 47.

A release from the company today said money was still coming in for LNP candidates across Queensland, with the Coalition expected to win as many as 26 seats in the state tomorrow.

An increased  swing away from Labor in Queensland since Tuesday has been mirrored across Australia, with Sportsbet's odds predicting the Coalition to win 97 seats and Labor just 47.

A company spokesman said four seats remained too close to call - Lingiari in the Northern Territory, Page in New South Wales, Indi and McEwen in Victoria.

The remaining two seats were tipped to go to Bob Katter and Andrew Wilkie.

"The money continues to pour in for the LNP right across the sunshine state but in a bit of good news for the ALP, PM Kevin Rudd looks to be home in Griffith despite seeing a huge plunge on Bill Glasson in recent weeks," Sportsbet's Ben Hawes said.

Sportsbet has already paid out on bets placed on the Coalition to win but wagers continued to come in three to one in favour of Labor, now $11 outsiders to win the election, with the Coalition paying just $1.03.
