Now Odds On For 2017 General Election

BoyleSports can report support for a General Election to take place in 2017 in Ireland after a number of bets on Monday.

With the scandal around Sgt. Maurice McCabe, Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael are rapidly separating from each other and on Monday we had to cut the odds of a General Election in 2017 into odds on as some chunky bets were laid at 7/4 resulting in the price hardening into 4/7.

2018 is currently second favourite for a General Election at 11/4 with 13/2 about 2019, 12/1 about 2020 and 20/1 that it will be 2021 or later.

It was odds against for a General Election to take place in 2017 on Sunday evening but following the news that Fianna Fail had overtaken Fine Gael in the latest Sunday Times Poll and following on from the on-going McCabe scandal…

punters quickly latched onto 7/4 resulting in it now being odds on for a General Election to take place this year.

We firmly believe that we will be heading to the polling stations before 2017 is out and it could be sooner than we think as Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael grow further apart on a daily basis.
