Predicted heatwave prompts gamble on hottest summer ever
Leading bookmaker Coral has cut the odds on this summer being the hottest on record into 3-1 (from 6-1) following reports that the UK is set for a heatwave in the next few days and after the firm took a flurry of bets on a record breaking summer in the last 24 hours.
“If the latest reports are to be believed, we could be set for the start of a long heatwave at some point in the next few days. This has promoted punters to snap up our odds on the hottest summer ever and leaves the bookmakers sweating for cooler temperatures,” said Coral’s John Hill.
