By  | 

Here is a press release KOLO 8 News Now receieved this morning:

Following Monday’s final debate between president Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney, William Hill Race & Sports Books in the UK has again updated its odds for the U.S. Presidential race.

Obama’s odds have been trimmed from 4:9 to have him now as a 2:5 favorite to defeat Romney, whose odds stretched from 7:4 following last week’s debate now to 15:8.

“The final debate does not seem to have given either man any huge boost, but with Obama avoiding another clear defeat, he appears now to be in pole position for the race to the White House,” said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
