Tories cut to 1-14 to gain most seats at General Election
Leading bookmaker Coral has cut the odds on the Conservatives picking up the most seats at the General Election into 1-14 (from 1-10) this morning, while at the same time pushing Labour out to 8-1 (from 7-1). The Liberal Democrats have attracted some support in the betting and have been trimmed into 28-1 (from 33-1) with the firm.
Meanwhile, Coral has seen a flurry of bets for George Osborne not to hold the seat for Tatton after the General Election where he is evens to either lose the seat or step down. The firm has also taken a rush of bets in Scotland on there being a Scottish Independence Referendum by the end of 2018.
“We’ve hardly taken any bets on the Labour party gaining the most seats at the upcoming General Election which suggests punters have little confidence in Jeremy Corbyn. In fact we have taken more bets on the Liberal Democrats who have been popular to pick up more than 20% of the share of the vote when the electorate head to the ballot boxes,” said Coral’s John Hill.
“In Scotland we have seen a gamble on there being a second independence referendum in the last 24 hours following Theresa May’s decision to hold a snap election,” added Hill.
