33/1 Con-Lab Coalition To Keep SNP Out?
With Lord Baker suggesting that a Conservative-Labour coalition may be necessary to prevent the SNP holding the balance of power, William Hill are offering odds of 33/1 that this is what will happen - but just 7/2 that the SNP will be involved in a coalition government.
'There has been some betting interest in the chances of a Lab-Con coalition, but much more in the SNP to be part of any governing coalition' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
MEANWHILE Hills offer 6/5 that David Cameron & Ed Miliband will both take part in the same tv election debate, 8/13 that they will not.
WILLIAM HILL ODDS: GENERAL ELECTION OUTCOME...2/9 Hung Parliament; 7/2 Coalition involving SNP; 4/1 Con-LD Coalition; 9/2 Con minority govt; 9/2 Con majority; 5/1 Labour minority govt; 13/2 Lab-LD coalition; 7/1 Coalition involving Ukip; 12/1 Lab majority; 20/1 Coalition involving Greens; 33/1 Con-Lab coalition; 50/1 Ukip majority; 500/1 Lib Dem majority; 25/1 any other outcome.
