X-Factor: Last Chance To Usurp Janet At Top Of The Betting
Janet Devlin was in the first show of this year's X-Factor but she has managed to remain the favourite throughout all of the audition shows thanks to heavy support from William Hill's reality TV punters.
She is 5/1 favourite with Hills, just ahead of Jade Richards at 6/1 and Amelia Lily 13/2. Hills believe that the fact that she has held on to top spot for so long, suggests that show producers have held back some of this year's top acts and they may well unleash a trump card this weekend.
"It is quite strange to see someone take up the mantle as favourite from the first show and hold on to it throughout the entirety of the auditions and we would wager that there will be a couple of big acts to come this weekend who will wrestle the favouritism off of her," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
X-Factor Outright: 5/1 Janet Devlin; 6/1 Jade Richards; 13/2 Amelia Lily; 8/1 Melanie McCabe; 9/1 The Keys; 10/1 Marcus Collins; 12/1 Craig Colton; 12/1 Frankie Cocozza; 14/1 Sami Brooks; 14/1 Lascel Woods; 16/1 BAR.
