Political betting – what to look out for
General election odds
Before every general election, you can get the latest UK politics odds from William Hill.
Labour have been out of power since 2010 and were crushed under Jeremy Corbyn in the 2019 general election.
Betting on the party to become a force again under Kier Starmer?
Or will the Conservatives hold onto their political base in the south and make further headway in the north of England and Scotland? They’ve won three successive electoral majorities.
And what about the Liberal Democrats? Has their role in the Conservative-Liberal coalition of 2010-15 damaged their political brand for good?
The American political landscape is as polarised as it’s been since the late 1960s.
The Republican and Democratic parties are miles apart on every issue from climate change to trade policy, immigration, healthcare and the role America should play on the world stage.
So, the stakes could hardly be higher when Americans vote for president, and the ripples are felt across the globe.
Presidential elections take place every four years. The winner is the candidate who gets the most votes in the Electoral College.
With William Hill, you can get odds on the next president and on which states will turn red or blue.
Conservative leadership odds
The fortunes of a Conservative leader can go downhill quickly.
Take Margaret Thatcher. In 1987, she won her third general election in a landslide on the back of an economic boom. But, just two years later she was driven away from Number 10 in tears.
Reckon there’s another Tory rebellion on the horizon? All it takes for a leader to face a challenge is for 15% of Conservative MPs to sign a letter to the 1922 Committee.
Get political betting odds on the next Conservative leader right here.
Labour leader odds
Removing and replacing a Labour leader takes time and involves votes from the parliamentary party, the party grass roots and Trade Unions.
That’s why, with famous exceptions like Harold Wilson and Tony Blair, leaders of the party are normally only replaced after poor general election showings.
In fact, there hasn’t been a successful challenge to a sitting Labour leader in the party’s history.
London Mayoral election odds
There are also London mayoral elections once every four years.
Who are you backing to follow in the footsteps of Ken Livingstone, Boris Johnson and Sadiq Khan?

Political betting jargon buster
• Popular vote
When a candidate wins the most votes. In America, this doesn’t decide the presidency – that comes down to the Electoral College. In the UK, the winning party in a general election is the one that takes the most seats and gets a majority in Parliament.
• US Presidential Election Debate
Before a US Election, the candidates normally have three televised debates, held on different news channels with different moderators.
• State betting
Each state in America is worth a certain number of votes in the Electoral College. A presidential candidate collects all those votes when they win a state – no matter how small the margin.
There are 650 parliamentary constituencies in the UK, and these translate into seats in Parliament. The party that wins the general election is the one that gets the majority. If no party manages this, there’s a ‘hung parliament’, when parties either form a coalition or another election is held.
Tips on political betting
If you are betting on elections, you should keep an eye on the most respected polls.
In the UK, these include Ipsos MORI, Opinium and YouGov. In America, CNN and MSNBC run regular polls, plus you have polling firms like FiveThirtyEight, which was founded by the famous number-cruncher Nate Silver.
Don’t forget that every poll includes a margin for error, and they all get it wrong sometimes!
