Gaddafi: If, When and How he is Removed from Power Odds

BetUS.com is the latest online gambling site to offer odds on Libya strongman Muammar Gaddafi. 

With Gaddafi slowly gaining ground once again and taking control of cities previously occupied by opposition forces, the oddsmakers still believe he will be forced from power with odds of 1/8.  His remaining in power would pay out $40 for every $10 bet (see website for exact time frame on this bet).

There were odds on when Gaddafi relinquishes power, with August or later being the 7/2 long shot.
