More Bets, More Money For 'Leave' But 'Remain' Remains Favourite

William Hill say that 73% of all bets and 57% of all the stake money they have taken on the outcome of the EU Referendum thus far have been for 'Leave' to win the vote – yet 'Remain' is odds-on favourite.

However,William Hill currently make the 'Remain' option their 4/11 favourite, with 'Leave' as the 2/1 outsider. Spokesman Graham Sharpe explained: 'It may seem illogical to make 'Remain' the favourite when a 'Leave' result will cost us a hefty losing payout, but we are drawing from our experience of the betting patterns in the Scottish Referendum, and taking a view of our own that when push comes to shove, people tend to stick with the devil they know. We – and ,perhaps Boris Johnson and Michael Gove-  may just be making an expensive mistake!'
