Shortest Odds on ‘in’ Since EU Vote Date Was Announced – Bookmaker

British bookmaker William Hill said on Monday it was offering an “In” vote at the shortest odds since the date of next month’s referendum on European Union membership was announced in February.

It said odds on “In” had shortened to 1/6, implying an 85 percent chance of the country deciding to remain in the EU, compared with 1/5 (83 percent) previously. “Out” was at the longest odds yet at 4/1 (20 percent) from 10/3 (23 percent).

On Feb. 20, the day the referendum date was confirmed, Hills offered 2/7 “In” and 5/2 “Out”.
