Scottish Independence Odds Cut by Bookmakers as Poll Gap Narrows

Sept. 2 (Bloomberg) -- The two largest British bookmakers cut the odds further for Scotland voting for independence as the gap in opinion polls narrowed.

William Hill Plc put the chances of a “yes” vote at 11-4, meaning a bet of four pounds would win 11 pounds plus the return of the stake, reducing the odds from 4-1 last week. A bet on voters rejecting independence gets 1-4.

Ladbrokes Plc showed the same odds on its website, also increasing the prospects of a “yes” vote by the same margin while reducing them for a “no” result.
