Grexit Odds Tumble After No Vote

William Hill have today slashed the odds of Greece leaving the Eurozone this year following the NO vote in the Greek bailout referendum. The odds have tumbled from 7/2 and on Monday morning were just 5/4 , via 6/4.

One punter has already taken advantage of the odds staking €999 at 6/4. The bet was struck at odds of 6/4 and will return €2,497.50 to the punter while it is 4/7 that Greece stays in until at least the end of the year.

“The No vote overwhelmingly came out on top in the referendum and as a result the odds have tumbled considerably on Greece leaving the Eurozone this year,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “The odds of a 2015 Grexit now stand at 5/4 having been as long as 7/2 at the weekend. We still think it is more likely they will stay than leave but the betting odds are nearly 50/50 for the first time ever.”
