Betting hots up on a record-breaking summer

| 06.07.2015

With forecasters predicting another heatwave, leading bookmaker Coral is quoting odds xx that this July is the hottest on record. The hottest day of the year so far was recorded on July 1st when the mercury hit 36.7C and the firm go 8-11 that temperatures rise even higher, making it 4-1 that the record high temperature of 38.5C is broken.

It’s 5-4 that Britain experience the hottest year ever, however the odds on a hosepipe ban being declared anywhere in the country have drifted out to 8-1.

“We didn’t think last week’s sweltering weather could be beaten, but the latest forecast suggests that the hottest is yet to come,” said Coral’s Nicola McGeady.

“Punters are queuing up to back this summer being the hottest on record and we’re really starting to sweat over the pay-out we’re facing if it happens,” added McGeady.
