Conservatives In Control Of Election Betting
With the UK election just a month away it seems the Conservative Party have the upper hand as they head the betting at 2/5 to win the most seats.
Labour Party are next at 7/4 with UKIP and Liberal Democrats all but out of the running for the most seats at 66/1 and 500/1 respectively.
The UK Government could be set for a Labour minority after the election which is 2/1 favourite. A Conservative-Lib Dem coalition is the shortest priced coalition at 6/1. Any other coalition has been backed in from 14/1 to 8/1 of recent and is currently the most popular bet in the market.
The Overall majority market has been the most tremulous with nervous movement in recent weeks. No Overall Majority is now as short as 1/7 having been initially installed at 11/10. A Conservative Majority (11/2) and a Labour Majority opened in the betting neck and neck at 2/1 and 9/4 respectively, however a Labour Majority has lost a lot of support and subsequently drifted out to the outsider at 11/1.
SNP are red hot at 1/20 to dominate in Scotland and win the most seats whereas it is the Conservative party who again top the betting for the most seats, this time in England, at 1/7.
The percentage of voter turnover is expected to reach 65.01-70% with BoyleSports offering 6/4. 70.01% or more is next in the betting at 15/8, with 60% or less on offer at 10/1.
