Mitt Romney was the 1/12 red -hot favorite with Europe’s largest betting company Paddy Power to win this Saturday’s South Carolina primary. Romney who has already notched wins in Iowa and New Hampshire is followed in the betting by former Speaker of the House of Representatives Newt Gingrich at 5/1 and Ron Paul at 14/1.

Further down the list at 16/1 is Rick Santorum who came so close to shocking Romney in Iowa while Rick Perry props up the market at 40/1.

With Romney so far ahead of the chasing pack in the betting, Paddy Power is also running a market without him in the South Carolina primary. Here, Newt Gingrich is the favorite at 4/7 followed by Ron Paul at 6/4, Rick Santorum at 13/2 and Rick Perry at 25/1.

A spokesperson for Paddy Power said: “Mitt Romney continues to build momentum and looks unstoppable at the minute. The rest of the candidates aren’t throwing in the towel just yet but it looks as though they face an uphill struggle.”
