Tories drift in General Election betting but Labour still well off the pace

The Conservative Party are no longer odds-on to win a majority in the upcoming General Election, according to bookmaker William Hill.


The Tories were odds-on to gain a majority when the December 12 election was first confirmed, but their odds have drifted in recent days with William Hill going from 4/5 to Even money to secure a majority.

That means the bookmaker believes a Conservative majority is now lost as likely as ‘no overall majority’.

Labour, meanwhile, have been cut from 16/1 to 12/1, but they remain a bigger price to win a majority than they were a month before the 2017 General Election.

“As soon as the General Election was called the Tories were odds-on to gain a majority,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com.

“However, their odds have drifted slightly, while Labour’s have been cut.

“The gap between the two remains pretty big, but should this trend continue over the next few weeks, we could see a much closer contest than first thought.”

Latest William Hill Odds


UK General Election result: EVS No overall majority; EVS Conservative majority; 12/1 Labour majority; 50/1 Liberal Democrat majority; 66/1 Brexit Party majority
