Joe Biden Money Too Much for Online Gambling Websites

Sportsbook.com and others began pulling down odds for the Democratic Vice President pick Thursday on word that Joe Biden is a "virtual lock" to be selected by Barack Obama.

Speculation is increasing that Barack Obama's choice for vice president will be foreign policy expert Joe Biden.

If Mr Biden is selected as a running mate it would underline Democratic fears that Mr Obama's inexperience in world affairs is costing him votes.


The VP choice was a difficult one for Obama, a source close to the Illinois senator tells CNN's Gloria Borger.

Specifically Obama was "very hung up on the experience versus change," the source said, and how his message of change may conflict with a longtime Washington insider.

The source doesn't know who Obama ultimately chose, but confirms Sens. Joe Biden and Evan Bayh, along with Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine are all in the running.

With substantial money pouring into Sportsbook.com on Biden, it was time to close the bet, a spokesperson for the company told Gambling911.com.

Sportsbook.com will be offering a state-by-state "action" platform leading up to the 2008 US Presidential Elections which should give a very clear picture of which states will go to Obama and which to Senator John McCain. The platform will measure betting volume for each candidate per state and presented on the Gambling911.com website.

Sportsbook.com still had their Republican vice presidential odds up:

Bill Frist +3000

Bobby Jindal +2000

Charlie Crist +600

Chris Cox +1000

Chuck Hagel +4000

Condoleeza Rice +1000

Fred Smith +3000

Haley Barbour +2000

Joe Lieberman +1500

John Kasich +2000

Kay Bailey Hutchinson +2500

Lindsay Graham +1000

Mark Sanford +1200

Mike Huckabee +600

Mitt Romney +125

Rob Portman +1500

Rudolph Giuliani +2000

Sarah Palin +500

Tim Pawlenty +300

Tom Coburn +2500
