The 2018 Brazilian presidential election is going to be one of the closest ones in the country’s history. The elections are scheduled to take place in October 2018 and in them the Brazilian people will elect a President and a Vice President, as well as the members of the National Congress, state Governors and state legislative assemblies.
The current president of Brazil is former Vice President Michel Temer from the Brazilian Democratic Movement Party who stepped in to take over from the recently impeached Dilma Rousseff. In this article we will preview the betting offer for the Brazilian elections of two reputable bookmakers as we compare their betting offer and the odds they give to each candidate in the elections.
EnergyBet is a Maltese sports betting operator which is run by Probe Investments Limited. It is regulated by Maltese gaming laws which is a guarantee of the betting provider’s reliability and they have proven their generosity with their Welcome Bonus of 100% on your first deposit up to £25. When it comes to the Brazilian Presidential election EnergyBet ranks all of the top three candidates for the position very closely.
Geraldo Alckmin of the Brazilian Social Democratic Party is one of the three candidates to have made it on EnergyBet’s shortlist and he is given odds of 14/9. Many people consider him to be the best choice and as a result he is given slightly lower odds than the odder two contenders.
The second candidate is the so-called green alternative in the elections, Marina Silva (8/5). She has slightly higher odds than Alckmin and is considered to be the most acceptable candidate for the International community and the US. Jair Bolsonaro is the most radical of the three candidates and he has often flirted with far right ideals. However, he is still favoured by a large portion of Brazilian people and therefore has odds of 33/20 to win the election.
LVBet is another reliable betting operator which operates from the sunny island of Malta. If this is the first time that you bet with them you can make full use of their 100% Welcome Bonus on your 2018 Brazilian Presidential elections wager which can go as high as €50.
Geraldo Alckmin is a slight favourite with LVBet as well and he is given odds of 14/9. He has been in the presidential race before, in 2006, and this together with his moderate policies is a reason enough for the bookmaker to make him the slight favourite.
Environmentally friendly Marina Silva is right behind Alckmin and has odds of 8/5 to win the elections. She has recently been voted as one of British Financial Times’ women of the year in 2014 and she will hope that she can will use that positive publicity to win the presidential election as well.
The last candidate for the presidential position according to LVBet is Jair Bolsonaro (33/20) who has been an army parachutist in his past and has the military background that many Brazilians would want their future president to possess.
