Famed Las Vegas bookie Jimmy Vaccaro isn't putting his money on anti-gay candidates Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal and Rick Santorum to win the 2015 GOP nomination for president.

In a CNN interview with Michael Smerconish, Vaccaro had Cruz and Huckabee with 50 to 1 shots. Louisiana Gov. Jindal was listed with 500 to 1 odds. Famed homo-hater Rick Santorum was given 1,000 to 1 odds.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson was the only anti-gay candidate with favorable odds. Vacarro listed him at 5 to 1.

On the Democratic side, Vacarro has Clinton as a favorite with 2 to 3 odds.

Gambling is illegal in Las Vegas concerning elections. In Europe, however, the United States presidential election is one of the biggest days of the year for placing legal bets. If betting on presidential elections were legal in the U.S., "it would make the Super Bowl look like a high school game," Vacarro quipped.
