The nation's bookies have made it clear how they think the federal election will pan out.
According to online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au on Monday, in Calare Andrew Gee is favoured to retain the seat for the Nationals but is paying a fairly juicy $1.25 for any supporters who believe he is a certainty.
The Shooters, Fishers and Farmers' Sam Romano is on the second line of betting at $3.35 with Labor's Jess Jennings rated only a $12 chance.
Then comes The Greens' Stephanie Luke ($41), the Christian Democrats' Shuyi Chen ($51) and United Australia Party's Beverley. T. Cameron ($61), with Liberal Democrat Stephen Bisgrove the rank outsider at $101.
Bill Shorten's Labor Party is a very short $1.14 favourite to form government, with the the Coalition a $5.50 outsider.
Sportsbet has also framed a market on the number of House of Representatives seats to be won by each party.
The shortest price ($2.50) is for Labor to win 81-85 of the 150 seats, which would give the party a majority of between 12 and 20 seats, while 86-90 seats is rated a $3 chance.
