William Hill have shortened their odds for a 'Remain' majority in the EU Referendum from 4/9 (stake 9 for profit of 4) to 2/5 (stake 5 for profit of 2), and lengthened the Brexit odds from 7/4 (stake 4 for profit of 7) to 15/8 (stake 8 for profit of 15). 'The Easter weekend saw a surge of support for the 'Remain' option' said William Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

Sanders' Momentum shortens his Presidential odds

With Bernie Sanders picking up momentum as he took 128 delegates to Hillary Clinton's 75 from the last six states to vote, bookmakers William Hill say they have seen a surge of support for him to become President, and have trimmed his odds from 20/1 to 16/1 third favourite to do so, while lengthening Hillary Clinton's odds from 2/5 stake 5 for profit of 2) to 4/9 (stake 9 for profit of 4) favourite.

'As yet we have only tweaked the odds towards Mr Sanders, but if he manages to sustain the momentum I'd expect them to shorten further' said William Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
