Ahead of the Conservative Manifesto being released on Tuesday, the latest bookmaker odds are giving the party little to no chance of winning the most seats at the upcoming election.

At odds of 40/1, UK bookmakers imply a 2.3% probability of the Conservatives winning the Most Seats on July 4th.

Labour, on the other hand, is currently priced at 1/66 in that same market, translating to a 96.4% implied probability.
