Is this the best hung parliament bet?


Should you be taking the 11/4 for 324 seat or fewer?

Thanks to our regular betting poster, URW, for spotting this one – the 11/4 (in old money) or the 2.75 in the new parlance that Bet365 have on the Tories coming out with fewer that 325 seats. This total, of course, is the minimum that is required for a majority.

Unlike the range of conventional hung parliament bets this covers you in all situations that Cameron Tories don’t make it to an overall majority including the, admittedly highly unlikely, event of a fourth term majority Labvour government being returned.

It is precisely the same price as Ladbrokes have on the hung parliament option alone. PaddyPower have the hung parliament as a 9/4 shot.

I’ve still not come to a firm view on the overall election outcome but this wager is good value and allows you to cover yourself against two eventualities.
