ODDS have been slashed by bookmakers after a series of calls made by young men to their mothers was detected, it has been reported.
One leading bookmaker said: “There has been a flurry of bets on young guys finally finding a bit of time to phone theirÂ mums. The odds were 2500/1 but those odds have been slashedÂ down to 10/1. We have no idea why but we are guessing the holiday season is coming up and thereâ€™s every chance males in their 20s and 30s are a bit short on cash.”
Itâ€™s not the first time bookmakers have slashed odds. Last month bets on women paying attention to other road users went from 1million/1 down to 900,000/1 after a 24-year-old female driver from Essex was seen stopping at a zebra crossing.
