Tsipras Resignation More Likely Than Grexit?

BOOKMAKERS William Hill are offering odds of Even money (stake £1 for profit of £1) that Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will step down before the end of the year - but they are 6/1 that the country will quit the Eurozone by then.

And Hills are 8/11 (stake £11 for profit of £8) that Tsipras will still be PM at the end of the year - and 1/12 (stake £12 to profit by £1) that Greece will still be part of the Eurozone when 2016 gets underway.

It looks as though the PM's future is a little more difficult to predict than that of the country's continuing membership of the Eueozone' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

WILLIAM HILL....ALEXIS TSIPRAS STILL PM AT END OF YEAR?.......8/11 YES; Evens NO

GREXIT 2015.............6/1 TO HAPPEN; 1/12 NOT TO HAPPEN
