With West Australian Premier Alan Carpenter set to call a snap poll on September 6, betting agency Lasseters Sportsbook reports the Labor Party will enter the election a hot favourite.

Labor is at the short quote of $1.20 to remain in power in WA under Mr Carpenter's stewardship with the battling Liberals listed at $4.25 under re-elected leader Colin Barnett.

"It's an obvious tactic from Alan Carpenter and the Labor Party to capitalise on the turmoil surrounding the Liberals and the departure of Troy Buswell," says Lasseters' Gerard Daffy.

Lasseters is also predicting a comfortable Labor win in this weekend's Northern Territory election. The Paul Henderson-led party is at $1.06 with the Country Liberal Party at $8.00.
