Corbyn’s PM odds halved as predicted Tory majority odds shrink
Jeremy Corbyn is now just 4/1 to become Prime Minister, following last night’s televised Q+A.
The Labour leader is now half of the 8/1 he was initially priced up at when the Election was called.
Despite facing a grilling from Jeremy Paxman in last night’s live debate, the odds suggest the momentum is firmly with Labour.
The Conservatives, once 1/50 to claim the most seats, have now seen those odds reach 1/12.
Conversely, Labour are now 6/1, in from 16/1.
Matthew Shaddick, Head of Political Betting at Ladbrokes said: “Punters continue to pour support behind Jeremy Corbyn and we’re regularly seeing five figure bets on him becoming PM come 9 June.
“More worryingly for Theresa May and the Conservatives, their projected majority is now 110, that’s down from 150 only 10 days ago.”
