QuoteOriginally posted by: zerdnaAhem, whatever your adjusted in your post is not all you should have adjusted. I'll try to succeed where bearish failed. What he politely told you is that if there were shmuck in the world who would not laugh and shrug shoulders at you and took your odds instead, you could have earned huge spread offloading this bet on intrade. You basically suggesting betting roughly 1:1 wheres intrade has almost 1:2 odds. You have to pay almost double if Romney wins. Capiche?I adjusted it slightly concerning the trouble with post-hurricane voting in some states. Added BOLD type for clarity.Since I have been gambling on Thoroughbreds since I was 12 years old, I guess I understand a few things about odds making, straight betting, laying off one's bets, and when would-be bettors have a fair shot at a decent payoff.Bottom line - Obama wins by 2% of the popular vote or greater, or I have to pay up.So, you wanna bet, big guy?
