Betway has slashed the odds of UKIP winning the Stoke-on-Trent by-election from 11/4 to 9/4
UKIP 9/4 from 11/4 for Stoke-on-Trent by-election and Paul Nuttall 15/8 to stand in Brexit heartland.
UKIP’s chances of winning the seat vacated by Tristram Hunt have increased dramatically, as it appears that party leader Paul Nuttall is preparing to throw his hat into the ring.
Nuttall is 15/8 to be UKIP’s name on the ballot paper, close up in the betting to market leader Mick Harold at 13/8 and Tariq Mahmood at 7/4.
Labour remain favourites at 4/6 to retain the traditionally left-leaning constituency, with the Lib Dems at 6/1 and Conservatives 10/1.
“We’re wary of UKIP’s chances, especially if leader Paul Nuttall is on the ballot paper, and we’ve cut their odds from 11/4 to 9/4.
“Nuttall is currently third in the betting at 15/8 to stand for the seat, in a very tight market headed by Mick Harold at 13/8.”
