  • The New Conservative leader will be announced on September 10th
  • Betting sites have Pierre Poilievre as the short-priced favorite in betting markets
  • Jean Charest is the only other possible candidate according to bookmakers

It has been a long wait to find the replacement for removed Erin O'Toole at the head of the Conservative party, but the leadership election is now just a few weeks away and Pierre Poilievre is the shortest possible price with betting sites to win.

With odds of just -2000 representing a 95% chance of victory according to betting sites, it would seem the leadership race is a forgone conclusion.

Next Conservative Leader Betting Odds

Candidate Moneyline Decimal Probability
Pierre Poilievre -2000 1.05 95.2%
Jean Charest 2400 25 4%
Leslyn Lewis 10000 100 1%
Patrick Brown 10000 100 1%
Roman Baber 10000 100 1%

As we can see from the betting odds above, outside of Poilievre, just Jean Charest would have any kind chance according to betting sites with odds of +2400, whilst the remainder of the candidates can be bet at odds of 10000 or greater.

As far as the betting is concerned, there is only one player in the race for conservative party leadership in the election and according to betting odds, there is a 95% chance that Pierre Poilievre will be installed.
