Roundup: Day Four (as figures suggest at time of publication)
Day Three suggested: Polls – Remain 44.4%, Leave 45.8%. The bookies maintained a clear favourite of a Remain vote.
Day Four suggests that three of the main polls registered a change with two swinging in the direction of a Remain vote, bumping up the total by +3%. Leave remained static, as the final polls show that Remain just edges it going into the day of voting. The bookies have, for a final time, favoured the Remain vote by shrinking the odds across the board and extending the Leave odds to an average of +1 – indicating a better value bet to Leave than yesterday’s Leave odds. However, with all bookmakers focusing on a tight margin for Remain – reducing a potential profit to around 12p from 25p off a standard £1 bet earlier in the week, a Remain vote is clearly the favourite.
Voting remains open until 10pm tonight, with the result expected to be announced some time Friday 24 June. The EU debate has been a tightly contested referendum, with the verdict whether the UK will Remain or Leave eagerly anticipated.
