Odds slashed on snow for Santa

The odds on a White Christmas in Scotland are falling quicker than the temperature according to Ladbrokes.

With an Arctic blast expected to hit Scotland this weekend, it has prompted punters to part with their cash and the bookmakers have consequently cut the odds for a dusting of snow on December 25.

Aberdeen and Inverness are the most fancied cites to receive a flurry at just 7/4 apiece whilst Edinburgh and Glasgow aren’t far behind with odds of 2/1 each.

David Macdonald of Ladbrokes said: “Scotland has seen some substantial White Christmases in the past and if the early money’s on the nose then we’ll see a snow-filled December 25.”
