Ladbrokes the Bookmakers are offering 7-1 on the tories achieving 350 - 374 seats.
In other words, an overall Tory majority of more than 25 and less than 50.
The polls DEFINITELY indicate that we're headed for a hung Parliament with the Tories bagging more seats than any other party, but I am still convinced that there are many people out there who will say one thing to a polling company, and another when in private.
The odds of an overall Tory majority are 5-4, so it's simply just not worth placing this bet - not when statistically a hung Parliament is apparently the most likely option.
Unlike every other political bet I've ever had, I don't think that it's a cert that the tories will achieve 350 - 374 seats - but at 7 - 1, it's worth having £10 because it's a VERY achievable outcome by my reading.
In fact, I think I'm probably going to have another £50 on it.
I should just like to put a little health warning at this point to say only bet what you can afford to lose - and in the interests of political neutrality, I'm not backingg any one party over another. I'm just sharing a professional view of what COULD happen.
I certainly wouldn't have any more than £100 on it anyway!
