Scots Betting On Independence Yes Vote

Cameron speech prompts ‘yes’ bets as:
SCOTS BETTING ON INDEPENDENCE YES VOTE

William Hill have cut their odds from 3/1 to 5/2 that the Scots will vote in favour of independence when they get the opportunity to do so in a Referendum. And Hills offer 4/11 that the Referendum will take place in 2014 – and 7/1 that the country will become independent by 2020.
‘Although the betting suggests an ultimate ‘no’ to independence at any Referendum, the money we have taken is almost all for a ‘yes’ vote- and every bet struck since David Cameron spoke on the issue has been for ‘yes’.’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Hills OFFER 2/5 THAT ONLY THOSE AGED 18 OR OVER WILL BE PERMITTED TO VOTE IN THE REFERENDUM, 7/4 THAT THE AGE LIMIT WILL BE LOWERED FROM THAT.

William Hill…..

WHEN WILL SCOTTISH INDEPENDENCE REFERENDUM TAKE PLACE?….4/11 2014; 11/4 2012/2013; 7/1 2015 OR LATER

WILL THE REFERENDUM PRODUCE A VOTE IN FAVOUR OF INDEPENDENCE? – 5/2 YES; 2/7 NO

WILL UNDER 18s BE PERMITTED TO VOTE IN REFERENDUM? – 2/5 NO – 7/4 YES

WILL SCOTLAND ACHIEVE INDEPENDENCE BY 2020? – 7/1 YES; 1/16 NO

Gutsy Scottish Punter Burns Bookies To The Tune Of £39,000

Bookmakers William Hill were burned by an Ayrshire punter who made a profit of £39,000 by backing Scotland to defeat Cyprus to the tune of £30,000. The gutsy punter walked into an Ayrshire shop and placed the bet at odds of 13/10 and in doing so, placed the biggest ever bet that Hills have taken on Scotland to win a match.

“When we heard about the bet, we were very surprised as this unknown Scottish punter was willing to risk such a large stake on a nothing friendly, but Craig Levein’s men have done the job and in the process, more than doubled this punter’s cash,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

You Bet Scotland Won’t Be Paying The Penalty Against Lithuania

Scotland suffered last minute heartbreak against Czech Republic at Hampden Park on Saturday and all eyes will turn to the referee against Lithuania this week. Hills are offering 10/3 that there is a penalty awarded in the match (1/5 there is not one awarded). Scotland are 50/1 to qualify for Euro 2012 but the odds indicate that there is no reason why they should not win, offered at 8/13 to win with their visitors 5/1. The draw is offered at 13/5.

“Scotland should be able to see off Lithuania in their latest Euro 2012 qualifier and the odds suggest that they should do so with relative ease,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “Unfortunately whether they qualify is now out of their own hands and it appears that they have only the slimmest chance of doing so.”

The last time that these two sides met a goalless draw was played out and Hills go 15/2 about this happening again.

Scotland 50/1 Instead Of 3/1 To Qualify After Paying Penalty

SCOTLAND PAY PENALTY NOW 50/1 TO QUALIFY INSTEAD OF 3/1

William Hill make Scotland 50/1 outsiders to qualify for Euro 2012 after the stunning disappointment of conceding ‘the penalty that never was’ to the Czechs who were able to equalise as a result. ‘Had the penalty not been given and Scotland won the game 2-1 we’d have been quoting them at 3/1 to make it to the Euro 2012 finals, instead they are now 50/1 no-hopers because of the penalty that never was’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
Looking a little further ahead Hills make Scotland 11/4 to qualify for the next World Cup, but 1/ 4 not to.
