Dominic Cummings Odds
The odds on government adviser Dominic Cummings still being in his position at the start of June have been shortened, despite the media whipping up a storm over his journey to County Durham. Since the press conference in the Rose Garden yesterday, the odds on Cummings remaining in his post on June 1st have been trimmed to 4/9 at Betfair Exchange, thus implying that he has a perceived 69.2% chance of keeping his position. On the other side of the coin, the bookies go 13/8 that he leaves his position by the above date.
Backing of PM
Since Cummings received the backing of Prime Minister Boris Johnson, punters have been piling on the adviser in their droves with around 68% of all bets being aimed at him staying in his role with the government since the betting market opened.
On the reverse side, 32% of punters have backed the government aide to leave by the start of June.
This episode has affected the odds on Boris Johnson’s exit date with the bookmakers cutting the Prime Minister’s odds from 6/1 to just 9/4 that he vacates 10 Downing Street by the end of 2020.
There can be no doubting that this is a hugely challenging time for the government and the country as a whole, however when all is said and done, it is looking increasingly likely that Dominic Cummings will stay in his position as Boris Johnson’s adviser. The punters are certainly taking this view despite the odds going as high as 13/10 with some firms at the weekend.
