Mercury Music Prize: Industry backs Bowie
William Hill have seen a run of bets for Disclosure to win the Mercury Music Prize and they are the new 3/1 favourites having started as 7/1 shots.
David Bowie seems to be the music industry choice with the majority of shrewd industry customers backing Bowie to go on and win.
"We have a number of clients who over the years have been very successful at predicting the winner of the Mercury Prize. The majority of them are backing Bowie this year whilst the grass root support is overwhelmingly behind Disclosure," said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
