X-Factor: Gary's Odds Buoyed By Bagging Boys
Despite the fact that the two current favourites are girls, Hills have seen plenty of cash for Barlow to win the battle of the mentors, which points to the fact that we are yet to see the best that this year's show has to offer.
"We currently have Gary Barlow at a five figure loss in the winning mentor category despite the fact that the current leaders in the betting market are girls," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "This would indicate that we are going to see a couple of incredible male acts over the next couple of weeks."
Louis, who has once again been lumbered with the increasingly tedious ‘over 25s' group, is 3/1 to be the winning mentor, while Tulisa is 4/1 to win with the groups.
