Should a simple majority reject the Brexit deal at the House of Commons two options will be on the table to trigger a leadership contest. According to online sportsbook news in the United Kingdom, Mrs. May might decide to step down or 48 Tory MPs might sign letters of no confidence.
Key pro-Brexit voices Michael Gove and Dominic Raab are gaining momentum at the new Conservative leader odds. However, some cabinet members who are less pro-Brexit like Jeremy Hunt and Sajid Javid are seen as safe choices and ambitious to lead.

Leading Cabinet Brexiteer Michael Gove
Environment secretary Michael Gove is the leading Cabinet Brexiter. He enjoys a dedicated follower base among MPs. He stands against Mrs. May’s draft, but he refuses to leave the Cabinet out of belief he can lobby for change from inside. He was also a leading figure in the referendum, campaigning to quit the EU in 2016. A consistent Brexit politics could win him the Conservative leadership with 17/2 odds at Bet365 Sportsbook.
Jeremy Hunt an Experienced Minister
Jeremy Hunt is seen as a stable figure in May’s government. He serves now as the foreign secretary after Mr. Johnson quit in July. Previously Hunt was the health secretary for six long years. Hunt could end up as a safe choice for Tory MPs, especially that he is an experienced cabinet minister. Yet his positions were a bit shaky unlike Mr. Gove. He backed remain in referendum but switched to an outspoken Brexiter.
Brexiter Raab Has Good Relations with Brussels
According to online sportsbook news in the United Kingdom, Dominic Raab is one of prominent leave-backers. He is leading the rebellion against Mrs. May’s draft, resigned as Brexit secretary in November. However, he had more active relationship with Brussels than his predecessor David Davis, and that might earn him credibility to lead. He is also seen as from the new generation.
Sajid Javid, Mrs. May’s Loyalist
The home secretary Sajid Javid is the favourite at new Conservative leader odds. He made no secret that he wants Mrs. May’s job. However, we do not recommend betting on Javid, because he appears to be May’s loyalist. He considers Mrs. May’s draft Brexit deal as the best option available. Should May lose her job Tory MPs will opt for outspoken Brexiteer rather than similar face to the current PM.
