Big bets being placed on a White Christmas
William Hill are starting to see more than a light dusting of White Christmas bets with bets of up to £200 being placed on snow falling around the country on Christmas Day.
The most popular selection with punters has been London which is 6/1 to see snowfall on the roof of Buckingham Palace although the favourites are all in Scotland. Aberdeen's Pittodrie Stadium is 3/1 with Edinburgh Castle and Glasgow Cathedral both 4/1.
"Christmas is less than a month away and with the weather being so interchangeable at the moment, our punters are definitely banking on snow falling on Christmas Day," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
Snow on Christmas Day: 3/1 Aberdeen; 4/1 Edinburgh; 4/1 Glasgow; 5/1 Belfast; 5/1 Newcastle; 6/1 Birmingham; 6/1 Dublin; 6/1 Leeds; 6/1 Liverpool; 6/1 London; 6/1 Manchester; 7/1 Bristol; 7/1 Cardiff
