Who would win if a general election were held now?

The Conservative Party are the clear favourites to win the most seats if an election were held today, based on the most recent statistics.
As of this morning (03/09/2019), the Tories have a 1/3 forecast chance of winning the most seats, that is an equal percentage chance of 75%.
Throughout the year, the odds of Labour have drifted on the opposite side of parliament, meaning they have odds of 4/1, equating to some likelihood chance that was implied.
It has not always been plain sailing for the Tories from the market as the government trailed Labour on the market to the 2nd May and the 15th January.
The huge market movers would be the Brexit Party, that had been initially priced to win the most seats in the upcoming election.
Bookmakers slashed the probability of that happening all the way about the 10th of July into 6/1, though The Brexit Party have returned to 20/1.
Would be the Liberal Democrats, that had been 250/1 to triumph on the 2nd of January.
That cost came crashing down to 11/1 on the 24th of July and will be now 20/1 as of now (03/09/2019).
With the beginning of a number of political parties this season”Another Party” contains any not named on the bookies’ list, and also has seen a change.
“Any Other Party” opened up at 13/2 to win the most seats, although, by now, that is drifted all the way out to 80/1.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson:”When observing the data gleaned from the beginning of the calendar year, the crossover between Labour and Conservatives is rather something.
“Only twice have Labour become favourites in the current marketplace, in January and in May. The chaos which seems to have enveloped the Tory government has not translated into the gambling market”
