Scottish Independence Odds Cut by Bookmakers as Poll Gap NarrowsRodney Jefferson
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.
