A total of 79 per cent of all bets in Scotland on the Independence referendum have been for a ‘yes’ vote, according to Britain’s biggest bookmaker.

The odds are 1/8 no and 9/2 yes.

100 per cent of William Hill punters in Dundee and Motherwell have backed independence although Edinburgh has a 50/50 split.

In London, 75 per cent of all bets have been for a ‘no’ vote including a hefty £600,000 wager comprising of one £400,000 wager and one £200,000 wager at odds of 1/4 and 1/6, while Belfast and Cardiff are siding with their non-English counterparts.

A total of 83 per cent of all bets in the Welsh capital have been for independence while 75 per cent of all bets in the Northern Irish capital have been for the same outcome.

William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly said: “If the Scottish punters turn out to the voting booths as they have done to the betting shops, then we could well see a ‘yes’ vote when the referendum takes place in September."
