Online bookmaker Sportsbet has deputy Premier Jeremy Rockliff as the favourite to become Tasmania's next Premier.
They have gone out on a limb with Mr Rockliff still to announce publicly whether he wants to contest the top job.
Sportsbet has Mr Rockliff as the $1.90 favourite ahead of Treasurer Peter Gutwein ($2.50) and Infrastructure Minister Michael Ferguson $4.50.
The bookmaker also has included in the market, cricket legends Ricky Ponting and David Boon and former St Kilda football star Nick Riewoldt are all at $101.
Sportsbet spokesman Rich Hummerston believes it is a three way political race with two outsiders also included in the betting.
He said Health Minister Sarah Courtney and Attorney-General Elise Archer were both at $15.
"Being the deputy, Rockliff is the likely successor.," Mr Hummerston said.
"But whether it's the Apple Isle or anywhere in the world political issues can turn sour pretty quickly."
