Nigel Farage should be careful what he wishes for after suggesting a second EU referendum – as the UK is odds-on (4/7) to vote ‘Remain’ if the Brexit re-vote takes place.
We’re now offering odds of 11/8 that the UK reinforces the vote to leave the EU, as Brexit campaigner Farage expects.
His call for a second vote has caused a stir online, with many urging Theresa May to heed his advice, and we’ve cut the odds of a second EU referendum to 5/1 from 10/1.

Asked about the possibility of another referendum spokesman Paddy Power said: “Nigel Farage has opened a big old can of worms with this one – but no bigger than the Brexit multipack he cracked open for the UK.
“His suggestion of a second EU Referendum is only going to increase the pressure on Theresa May to green light a re-vote. If she did, we think the UK would change its mind.”
4/7 UK to vote ‘Remain’ in a second EU Referendum

2/1 No Brexit deal to be reached by the deadline
