French Election 2017 betting: Emmanuel Macron Leads Odds Days Before First-Round Vote

French election favourite Emmanuel Macron has retained his lead at the forefront of the betting odds heading into the first round of this year’s vote, although reports suggest the polls are still “too close to call” before Sunday’s ballot.

According to Reuters, both Macron—currently listed at evens to become France’s next president—and far-right candidate Marine Le Pen have lost some momentum prior to Sunday’s first-round vote but are each expected to make it through to the second round on May 7.

However, it’s been forecast by French newspaper Le Monde that centrist Macron is expected to win that deciding round based on a poll of more than 11,000 people.

Far-left representative Jean-Luc Melenchon has made a swift rise into contention in recent weeks and remains a 7/1 (8.00) outsider to win this year’s election, while 3/1 (4.00) Francois Fillon remains level with Le Pen despite scandals emerging around his campaign in recent months.
