It’s Snow Joke, Festive Flurry Increasingly Likely!
William Hill have significantly cut the odds of a White Christmas throughout the country with long range forecasts predicting a big freeze. Aberdeen is the favourite to see snow, slashed from 3/1 to 2/1 and London in from 6/1 to 4/1.
Newcastle is currently William Hill punters' favourite to see snow on Christmas day with bets of up to £200 placed at odds ranging from 7/1 to 4/1.
"We have tried to pre-empt the meteorological punters by slashing our white Christmas prices but we do not think this will deter them with snow looking ever more likely to fall on the 25th," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
White Christmas odds: 2/1 Aberdeen; 5/2 Edinburgh; 5/2 Glasgow; 4/1 Belfast; London; 4/1 Newcastle; 5/1 Birmingham; 5/1 Dublin; 5/1 Leeds; 5/1 Liverpool; 5/1 Manchester; 6/1 Bristol; 6/1 Cardiff
