Alexander Kostin, Bonuscodebets.co.uk: “The closer to the day of election, the more people jump on the betting bandwagon. Big stories like accusations of Trump’s sexual assaults provide spikes in performance. For example, Trump attracted 77% of stakes and 81% of bets due to Clinton’s emails investigation last week”.

The Daily Mail recently reported Clinton still holds a six-point lead over Trump with a week to go despite last week’s FBI bombshell, and British audiences have responded by betting roughly 24% more on the democrat.

It’s also interesting to see Ladbrokes reveal Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool as three cities betting more favourably on Trump, a candidate whom many would agree identifies closer to the right wing than the left.

It’s especially intriguing all three of those UK cities accounted for a Remain majority during the EU referendum, per BBC News, indicating some foreign audiences feel Trump has a real chance at causing an upset.
