Donald Trump takes the most money in recent betting on US election

It's no surprise to see the shredded wheat haired contender getting some action after the latest Clinton email news

There's a bit more money going on to bets that Trump wins the election after last weeks Clinton news. Before the Clinton news broke, you could have grabbed nearly 6/1 on Trump but now you'll do well to get 3's.

Our friends at Livesquawk noted that Ladbrokes have seen a big increase in Trump betting with some bets of several thousand pounds going down.

Despite Clinton looking favourite, the money has been pretty evenly split so far.

While the odds indicate where the favourite is, that doesn't mean that people won't look for value or a hedge on the other side. In this instance, those odds near 6/1 looked mighty inviting when the Clinton news broke so I'd suggest most of the recent money was put on then.
