Polling stations will be busy today as the people of Scotland vote on whether the country will become its own independent state.

I don't follow politics that much, but have been passively taking an interest in this referendum. One thing that has struck me is the belief that the 'Yes' and 'No' opinions are neck-and-neck.

The claims that this is too close to call is something that contradicts something I have looked at.

Using an unscientific method - betting odds - I see that the 'No Vote' is favourite with a price of 1/5. The 'Yes' is 7/2, which leads me to question whether it really is as close as the analysts are predicting.

We won't know what will happen until all the votes have been counted but, based on what I see here, I would not be surprised if Scotland remains part of Great Britain.
