Royalty By Rupert Adams

Busy Week For Royal Baby Betting

It has been a busy seven days of Royal Baby betting with bets increasing by over 100% week on week. The two biggest bets of the week were both for £500 for the baby to be called Alice. In total over 70% of bets placed in the last fortnight have been for the name Alice, which, as a result, is the 6/4 favourite in the market.


The odds suggest that the baby could arrive any day soon and the Queen’s birthday, Tuesday the 21st April, is by far the worst result.


 “Alice is all the rage and if it is a middle name rather than a first name there will be a lot of very disappointed punters out there,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
