Banker Bets For Grexit And Barclays

BOOKMAKERS William Hill have slashed their odds that Greece will remain in the Eurozone to its shortest odds yet, from 1/5 (stake £5 to make £1 profit) of 1/9 (stake £9 to win £1), and lengthed the odds of a Grexit during 2015 from 7/2 to 5/1 (stake £1 to win £5). 'As far as our customers are concerned a Grexit during 2015 is now effectively a non-runner' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Grexit 2015? - Yes- 5/1......No- 1/9

BARCLAYS TO BANK ON MORZARIA, SAY BOOKIES.....

'It is very rare for punters to be able to bet on a market in which every runner appears to be a banker bet' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
