Hung parliament now 4-1 ahead of General Election

| 06.06.2017

Leading bookmaker Coral has taken a flurry of bets in the last 48 hours on there being a hung parliament following the General Election on Thursday which is now 4-1 but was as big as 8-1 when the snap election was called.

The Conservatives remain the firm favourites at 1-10 to pick up the most seats, while they can be backed at 2-7 to gain a majority. Jeremy Corbyn is 7-2 with Coral to be the Prime Minister on July 1st, while he is odds-on at 2-5 not to be leader of the Labour Party at the end of 2017.

“The Majority of the bets we have taken in the last 48 hours have been for there to be a hung parliament following the General Election. The Conservatives remain the long odds-on favourites to pick up the most seats, however, the odds on them gaining a majority are drifting with each day,” added Hill.
