Royal Baby Betting Heating Up as Due Date Approaches
A second royal baby from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge is due anytime in the next few weeks and of course this means that the betting markets are heating up.
There has been no official announcement on the sex of the baby but the bookmakers are greatly favouring it being a girl. Bet365 has odds of 4/6 on a girl and 6/5 on a boy while William Hill is also offering 4/6 on it being a boy and odds of 11/10 on it being a girl.
As a result it is no surprise that the favourite name at the bookies is Alice with odds of 3/1 and 2/1 at Bet365 and William Hill respectively. Alice is followed by Elizabeth (4/1 and 9/2), and Charlotte (5/1 and 11/2). The most likely boys name is James which is at 12/1 at Bet365 and 14/1 at William Hill.
