Money on Clive Palmer to win 100 seats: from 14 people
FOURTEEN people agree with Clive Palmer. Yep, that's right.
Fourteen punters with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au have placed bets on the Palmer United Party winning 100 or more seats at the upcoming Federal Election.
Paying a lazy $1,001 to crack a century in the House of Representatives, the following punters stand to enjoy a handsome pay day should PUP pull off the feat:
1. There's been eight $1.00 bets with each punter standing to collect $1,001
2. One $20 wager with the return to be a cool $20,020
3. Two $5.00 bets, one $3.00 wager and a single 30 cent punt
PUP not winning 100 or more seats on September 7 is at the shortest possible odds of $1.001.
"It was a big claim but at least 14 punters agree with Clive. It might take a few more to get PUP over the line though," sportsbet.com.au's Ben Hawes said.

Sportsbet.com.au has several other PUP related markets, offering $4.00 for the party to win a seat and $1.18 for them to go home empty handed.
Mr Palmer himself faces a massive task to win the seat of Fairfax, priced at $7.00 to do so, well behind the Coalition, who are the $1.09 favourites.
