British bookmakers now have Trump around even money to win GOP nomination

The price on Trump securing the Republican ticket is now hovering around even money (1-to-1) with most UK gambling institutions, meaning that a $10 bet would return $10, plus the initial stake.

Trump is priced at around 3-to-1 and is second favorite to replace Barack Obama as president, with Hilary Clinton the favorite at .88-to-1 with the Ladbrokes betting company.

Coral, another major outlet, is most confident among its competitors of a Trump victory. It has priced Trump at .80-to-1 to represent the Republicans in the general election, and 2.75-to-1 for the presidency.
