Online bookmakers are offering some juicy odds on why Scott Morrison and his family needed two removalist vans to finally vacate Kirribilli House in Sydney almost two weeks after the election.
The bookies started framing odds as soon as social media chatter grew over why Scott, Jen and the two girls needed the two big vans to cart stuff away from a house that’s fully furnished and has presumably remained that way after they finally drove off in tears on Friday.
The Bug has averaged out those odds among the main online players and we urge you all to have a flutter that could prove quite lucrative. Check each site for slight variations in their markets.
