An Oasis reunion looks increasingly likely, if bookmakers’ forecasts are anything to go by, as Coral have now suspended betting on the band getting back together this year. Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, a spokesman for the bookies said the Britpop group’s potential comeback had prompted an “abnormal” number of bets in recent days.
“We have suspended betting on an Oasis reunion as we feel this is almost certain to happen now in 2020,” Coral’s John Hill said.
“The abnormal numbers of bets we have taken on this reunion points to the Gallagher brothers getting back together this year.”
Bookies suspend betting for one of two reasons: either because they have taken a substantial amounts of bets or when they believe something looks almost certain to happen.
Hill said: “We have been knocked over with bets on Oasis reuniting later in 2020 and as a result we have pulled the plug on this market now.

“If this latest gamble is landed, it gives Oasis fans something to look forward to later this year,” he added
The bookmakers received such a large number of bets on Oasis getting back together in 2020 that they decided to suspend betting for now.
Before the suspension, the band were as short as 1/2 to reunite this year.
Shortly after Coral pulled the plug on betting, Liam appeared to drop another hint about a potential comeback for the Kings of Britpop.
