All of the major parties are returning to the campaign trail after suspending all activities in the wake of the tragic Manchester bombing which claimed 22 lives.
The Conservatives are still leading in the polls and have the best odds of winning the general election with Betfair odds of 1/10 or a 90 per cent chance of winning.
Oddschecker spokesman Sam Eaton said: “Support appears to be growing for Corbyn’s party, but it’s evident that there still needs to be a dramatic change of opinion in the majority of constituencies if his party is to have a realistic chance of winning.
Conservative manifesto for General Election launched by Theresa May
Theresa May willing to pay 'reasonable' Brexit bill
“The Labour party are second favourite for plenty of different areas where the Torries are favourite, but even if they manage to overturn the odds in all of these regions it would still not be enough.”
At the launch of the Conservative Manifesto last week, Theresa May seemed confident that she was on course for victory and said: "We need to look forward and not back.”
Even despite the Conservative slip-up on the “dementia tax” u-turn, Mrs May's party is still the strong favourite to win.

One punter in particular felt the adrenaline rush of the election campaign last week and placed £350,000 on the Conservatives winning the most seats.
Mr Eaton said: “The ballsy punter obviously believes the election will be an easy win for May’s party, despite the person coming from a largely Labour dominated area.
“As bookies will only accept a certain outlay, the bets have been spread via different bookmakers, using Oddschecker to find the odds of all the top bookies.
