Only A Labour or Conservative minority government, or a repeat of the Conservative-Lib Dem coalition, are more likely outcomes than the SNP being involved in the next government, say bookmakers William Hill, who are offering odds of 7/1 that Nicola Sturgeon's Party will be involved in a government of coalition as a result of the General Election.

'Political punters have consistently bet on the SNP being involved in the next government and we have seen a flurry of three figure bets for the outcome in the past couple of days' said Hill's Media Relations Director, Graham Sharpe.

Hills offer just 5/1 that the SNP capture every single seat in Scotland, 8/1 that Alex Salmond becomes a Minister in the next government, and 6/4 that Ms Sturgeon herself will join her colleagues in Westminster as an MP before 2020.
