Greece to quit Eurozone? Odds slashed to 1/5

The odds for Greece to be the first country to leave the Eurozone have been slashed by bookmakers William Hill from 1/2 to 1/5 following the outcome of the Greek Election.

Hills make Cyprus 5/1 second favourites to leave, with Italy and Spain both 14/1 shots; Germany 16/1; Portugal 28/1; Belgium, France and Ireland all 40/1.

'If any country is ever going to quit the Eurozone you'd have to think that Greece is overwhelmingly the most likely to be that country' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
