88% Bet Yes In Scotland

88% OF SCOTTISH ONLINE BETS FOR YES

WILLIAM HILL have revealed that 88% of all bets they have taken online from clients with Scottish addresses have been for YES; compared with 70% from clients throughout England,Scotland, Wales and N Ireland.
Britain’s biggest bookmakers, Hills, who have now taken over £2million in bets on the outcome of the Referendum, and expect some £10m to be gambled industr-wide, make NO their 1/ 4 favourite, with YES offered at 11/4. ‘NO has been odds-on favourite throughout the campaign, but with YES reportedly closing up, according to various opinion polls, we would expect to see late backing for that option’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe, adding ‘We will continue to take bets for as long as possible on polling day.’
Hills say they currently face a five figure loss should the result be NO, but will make a six figure profit should it be YES.

DUNDEE has been installed as odds-on favourite to be the region producing the highest percentage of Yes votes in the Scottish Referendum.
Hills make Dundee their 8/15 favourite, with Clackmannanshire 5/1 second favourite, ahead of 8/1 Glasgow and Na h-Eileranan Slair; 12/1 Angus; 16/1 Moray. The 100/1 outsiders are Dumfries And Galloway; E. Dunbartonshire; Scottish Borders and South Ayrshire.
