Bailout betting – Italy 6/5 favourite to be next

Italy are the 6/5 favourites with Ladbrokes to get the next EU bailout.

The bookies install Spain as 15/8 second favourites with Greece 7/2 shots to be bailed out again next.

Ireland aren’t out of the running at 11/2 with Belgium seeming safe as 8/1 outsiders.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Italy look in trouble with Spain also in contention. Sadly for the Italian finance minister we can’t take a billion euro hedge.”
