Opinion Polls Say Photo Finish- Bookies Say 'No'!
As Referendum becomes biggest political gamble ever:
POLLS SAY REFERENDUM HEADING FOR PHOTO FINISH - BOOKIES BET 'NO' PAST THE POST!
DESPITE opinion polls continuing to suggest a close finish to the Referendum vote, bookmakers William Hill continue to make No their odds-on favourite.
'No' has been odds-on favourite since the book on the outcome of the Referendum began and we see no reason to change that now' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Having been a 2/5 chance at the start of the week, 'No' odds have shortened to 1/5 with Hills, who have lengthened 'Yes' from 7/4 to 10/3.
'All of the biggest bets we have taken, including one customer staking £800,000 and another £200,000, have been for 'No' while the biggest we have taken for 'Yes' is £10,000.'
Hills say their betting turnover on the Referendum will be the biggest ever gambled on any political event, with over £2m staked on the outcome.
