'Remain' Remains Favourite With Days To Go

BOOKMAKERS William Hill make 'Remain' 3/10 favourite (76.9% chance), with 'Leave' offered at 5/2 (28.5% chance) as the betting for the outcome of the EU Referendum goes into the final few days, with up to £20million expected to be riding on the outcome.

Hills say 64.5% of all the money staked has been for 'Remain', with 69.5% of all individual bets for 'Leave'.

''Remain has indeed remained favourite ever since the date of the Referendum was confirmed in February, although it has been both shorter and longer odds during the course of the campaign' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

'But 'Leave' has attracted by far the greater number of bets in total and is the result we fear financially. Despite having taken bets of £100,000; £60,000 and £40,000 for 'Remain' we still stand to pay out much more should 'Leave' win'
