Labour leadership odds tracker: Keir Starmer back in a commanding position as race heats up
Sir Keir Starmer has taken up a commanding position at the bookmakers with bookies currently giving him a 73 percent chance to be called the next Labour leader.
In reality, 73%??is the greatest implied chance Starmer has had of winning this past season, despite using a 60% likelihood only a week.
That is due to the large percentage of bets placed on the front runner over the previous 48 hours.
With every other candidate, a ripple effect has taken place on the remaining portion of the marketplace, with Starmer shortening.
Second favorite, Long-Bailey, drifting out to 15/4 from the current marketplace, providing her a 21.1% likelihood of substituting Jeremy Corbyn as the pioneer of the Labour party.
Lisa Nandy’s odds are becoming longer and longer through the day and is now 14/1 to be Corbyn’s successor, offering her only a 7.7% opportunity.
Rounding off the Marketplace, both Jess Philips and Emily Thornberry are out of this race, both priced to shoot over the Labour party.
In layman’s terms, that means they both have a 1 percent chance of winning.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson:”As we approach the company end of the Labour leadership race, Sir Keir Starmer has retained his label as the punter’s choice.
“The MP for Holburn and St Pancras spanned very appreciably a week, together with his suggested chances falling by 20 percent.
“But since then, a tide of service has propped the 57-year-old up on the current market, with it today appearing like Starmer’s to drop.”
