FORGIVE THE American feel this month but it only happens once every four years, and despite the US Presidential Election (8th November) being one of the most devisive election campaigns in living memory, it does give us an opportunity to profit from the results. And it all adds up to Hillary Clinton receiving the necessary 270 electoral college votes to take up residency in the Oval Office. And Donald, here is the maths! Firstly let me explain my nap selection is NUMBER OF DEMOCRATIC ELECTORAL VOTES BETWEEN 330-359 AT A WHOPPING 2/1 WITH MOST FIRMS.
So have you got your calculators ready? The number of rock solid Democratic votes (in states) is 175. Add on the undisputed 84 votes that Clinton is practically assured of. Now let’s add, of the swing states (the ones that always decide the election) of Florida (29), Ohio (18), Virginia (13), Colorado (9) and Nevada (6).
You are now up to 334. If the other swing states which are likely to vote Republican of North Carolina (15), Arizona (11) and Georgia (16) we are still able to collect if one of these three unlikely targets go blue. Following all that? Back Hillary now and banish the racist mysoginist.
Speaking of America, my Superbowl tip of last month, New England Patriots, continue to be at the head of the betting with the Green Bay Packers in a promising position.
My last outright selection prior to the Superbowl needs to be backed at this point and they are America’s team – the DALLAS COWBOYS – at a generous 16/1 in the outright lists. Their franchise quarterback Tony Romo is now back fit, they have the best offensive line in the league and they are currently 5 and 1. Take the odds now.
Meanwhile I hope you backed my headline selection of America in the Ryder Cup with my tip for outright selections and equally my ongoing tip for Sunderland to be relegated at 9/2! See you next month.
