Strictly Come Dancing 2016: Ore Oduba rivals Danny Mac as favourite to win


Ore Oduba is rivalling Danny Mac as the favourite to win Strictly Come Dancing 2016.

Ore claimed the first 10s of the series on Saturday when he blew the Strictly Come Dancing judges and audience away with his sensational jive that scored a whopping 39 points.

The presenter shot to the head of the betting after punters placed some hefty bets on him to win, forcing traders to shorten his odds to the 4/1 second favourite from 10/1.

However Danny Mac remains the favourite and has even shortened for the Glitterball trophy, despite being overshadowed by Ore at the weekend. Danny is now the Even money favourite from 6/4 as he continues to wow each week.

Louise Redknapp has been eased to 11/2 from 4/1 to win, but it is Greg Rutherford who suffered the most after week four of the live shows as he drifts out to 12/1 from 15/2.

Aoife Heffron from BoyleSports commented: “Ore Oduba is now the biggest liability in the book after an avalanche of bets came rushing in on Saturday after his stunning jive scored a massive 39 points. Bets reaching up to €200 were placed on the presenter to go all the way and take home the Glitterball trophy.”

She added: “Danny Mac hasn’t lost out on favouritism just yet, as punters continue to back the ex Hollyoaks hunk to win as he consistently scores high and shows no signs of slipping up any time soon.”
