Is Boris' time in Downing Street being cut short?
Punters have been flocking to back Boris Johnson leaving his role as Prime Minister in 2020.
In the last 24 hours, a whopping 62% of bets placed at Britain’s biggest bookies have backed Johnson to leave before December 31st this year.
That’s prompted bookies to cut odds on that happening from 6/1 earlier this month, into 4/1 at the time of writing.
Odds on Johnson remaining as PM until 2022 or after are drifting, from 1/2 out to 4/6.
When looking at individual years, 2020 (4/1) is followed by 2021 (8/1), 2023 (8/1) and 2022 (10/1) for the year of his exit.
Looking at the next Prime Minister market, Labour leader Keir Starmer is the clear 2/1 favourite in the market, ahead of Chancellor Rishi Sunak (10/3).
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “Boris Johnson has been under scrutiny since the COVID-19 pandemic first arose, and punters seem to believe the Prime Minister’s days are numbered as a result.
"Rishi Sunak is the most likely Conservative politician to be the next PM (10/3), with Michael Gove (8/1) following after."
