Paddy Power taking bets on this year’s X-Factor
Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh, Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue are back for another round of X-Factor. The show this year has adopted the more enjoyed style used in similar programme Britains Got Talent were acts are first seen in front of a live audience who can give their vocal opinion during the performance as to whether they like it or not. Previous years saw the early auditions performed only to the TV cameras and judges until down to the final acts. The auditions have so far seen a range of the down-right unbearable oddballs and good singers with great sob-stories to lobby their fight to reach the final.
Despite only being weeks in Irish Bookmakers Paddy Power have started taking bets on outright winner, first judge to be eliminated and the winning judge along with some X-Factor specials which include “Cheryl Cole to slap Cowell in the Face – 8/1”, “Dannii Minogue & Cheryl Cole to have a catfight – 18/1” and “ Cheryl Cole to flash her boobs. Live – 50/1”!
Singer, Danyl Johnson, is so far firm favourite t win the show outright at 2/1 with his closest rivals Stacey Soloman and Scott James at 6/1 and 8/1 respectively. It’s not all about the contestants on the X-Factor either – bets on the winning judge have been a good market in previous shows.
Cheryl Cole – 15/8
Simon Cowell – 9/4
Dannii Minogue – 11/4
Louis Walsh – 10/3
