Scot anticipates Independence vote by divorcing himself from the World’s Top Ten
Many have had their say in recent weeks and months about the impact of a ‘YES’ vote next week for Scottish independence. But what about us suckers south of Hadrian’s Wall. What is in it for us? Money obviously, if one can punt correctly.
NO is still the heavy favourite at 1.46, despite the weekend poll showing the YES side of the argument taking a fractional lead. This doesn’t represent any value at all in such a tight race, albeit a NO response is almost certain.
A more interesting price is the 7.2 available at Betfair on the turnout being between 70-75%. Although over 75% is the hot favourite, no vote these days gets that level of interest, not even the X Factor final. Take a step back and take the 7.2.
And whilst on the subject of Jocks saying farewell, one whom we certainly wont miss is Andy Murray. As a heroic Brit, he won the US Open, and then won Wimbledon!! But it is as a Scot that he has now dropped out of the World’s Top 10, having only beaten one decent player in the 15 months post that SW19 triumph (Tsonga at the recent US Open.) The 8 one can lay him at to win the 2015 Wimbledon is quite frankly free money, especially with the recent emergence of Marian Cilic, a man who loves the grass more than a fat cow.
