Here's a look at the latest odds on The Voice UK 2019 as this year's battle rounds get underway.
There has been a massive gamble on Jennifer Hudson to be the Voice UK’s winning coach this season following the first of the battle rounds at the weekend.
J-Hud currently has the top two singers in the Outright betting, Nicole Dennis, who is the 5/2 favourite, and Moya, who is a close 4/1 second favourite.
Having stolen one act and seeing one sent packing, punters evidently think Jennifer is building an unbeatable squad.
BoyleSports were forced to suspend betting on the winning coach market on Monday after an avalanche of bets saw Jennifer’s odds crash from 6/4 and her liability soar. As the dust settled on Tuesday, Ireland’s largest independent bookmaker re-opened the market but J-Hud is now odds-on at 8/13.
Will I Am is next in the winning coach market but at 9/2 he is no competition for Jennifer and will need to make some solid decisions in the battle stages if he is to even cause her to break sweat for the title. Both Olly and Tom Jones are tied in third at 11/2 apiece.
Aoife Heffron, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented: “The bets began to roll in thick and fast on Monday morning for Jennifer Hudson to have the winner on her team after the first of the Voice UK battle stages.
"J-Hud’s odds were quickly cut from 6/4, to 5/4 and to even money but it wasn’t enough to defer punters and our traders were forced to suspend the market as a result of the sheer volume of bets.
"Having re-opened it on Tuesday, Jennifer Hudson is now as short as 8/13 to claim her second win on the show.”
