Snap 2017 Election Betting Update PT 3- By A.J. Ryder on April 19, 2017 17:37 GMT
A Labour Majority is unlikely and it's 40/1 price tag reflects that while a LibDem majority is trading at a 150/1 shout.
There are a few interesting special bets out there on the election as well and you can lock in a relatively unappealing 1/8 price tag on the Conservatives to win by 100 seats or more – you're better off just backing them for a majority at 1/6 while Labour to win more votes than the LibDems can be backed at a 1/5 price tag.
UKIP to not win a single seat is also heavily favoured this time around and you can back that at a listing of about 1/5. UKIP to turn that around and actually win a single seat or more can be backed anywhere from a 7/4 margin all the way up to a 2/1 shout. The LibDems to win more votes than Labour is available at a 7/2 margin.
UKIP to win more votes than Labour trades at a 5/1 shot with some outfits and there are others who go up to 6/1.
The bookmakers are also offering up a wager on who will be named as the next LibDem leader and you can back Norman Lamb as the outright betting favourite with a few bookmakers going 5/2 and others going as short as a 2/1 price tag. Greg Mulholland is also very much in the mix with a price hovering around a 5/1 margin. Tom Brake is trading at a listing of 7/1 while you can back Mark or Kirsty Williams at a price of around 10/1, respectively.
Labours vote percentage is an interesting option for wagering and you can find that the 20-25% range is proving to be the most popular with bookmakers listing that at a price of around 6/4. A 25-30% showing would reward at a 9/4 listing while under 20% is paying out at a 4/1 price tag. Look for them to outperform and rack up somewhere over 30-35% and you'll be looking at a very appealing payout of 11/2.
