White Christmas Looking Likely

William Hill have had to cut the odds of a Scottish White Christmas again as punters continue to plough into the most festive of markets. Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow are all 2/1 shots to see snow at Christmas having been cut from 7/2 while Belfast (4/1), London (5/1) and Cardiff (5/1) have also seen their odds trimmed in the last 24 hours.


“Usually at this time of year, with just a week or so to go, we tend to start seeing the prices drift as the long range forecast becomes clearer, but instead we have cut the odds of a White Christmas with snow looking more and more likely,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


Snow on Christmas Day: 2/1 Aberdeen; 2/1 Edinburgh; 2/1 Glasgow; 4/1 Belfast; 4/1 Leeds; 4/1 Liverpool; 4/1 Manchester; 4/1 Newcastle; 5/1 Birmingham; 5/1 Bristol; 5/1 Cardiff; 5/1 Dublin; 5/1 London; 5/1 Norwich; 7/1 Penzance
