The Voice UK: Team Will's Jaz Ellington favourite to win

Jaz Ellington

Team Will artist Jaz Ellington is the favourite to win The Voice UK, as the live shows prepare to kick off.

This Saturday night Team Will and Team Tom's artist will both perform for the public votes, with two acts getting the axe, one from each of the two groups.

With the fate of the acts now in the public's hands, bookies reckon Jaz has the support to go all the way.

Before making it through to the final 20 over the weekend Jaz was joint favourite, however now he's the clear 4/1 market leader along with his coach will.i.am who's chalked up at 7/4 to be the winning judge.

Jessie J's act [tag]Becky Hill[/tag] has seen her odds slashed to 8/1 after making it through on Sunday night and quirky [tag]Vince Kidd[/tag] earns a 10/1 chance of stardom. But unfortunately the remainder of the singer's hopefuls are among the outsiders for success.

[tag]Joelle Moses[/tag] (9/1) has been a popular bet with punters since her blind audition where all four coaches turned their chairs for her.

Despite his credentials Sir [tag]Tom Jones[/tag] is in the unusual position of not being on top of his game, as he's the current 5/1 outsider to mentor the winner.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "Team Will have firmly established their position as the favourites. Sir Tom and Danny appear to have made some bad choices as all the fingers are pointing towards will.i.am or Jessie J's acts."

Unfortunately at the other end of the betting, both Matt & Sueleen and Ruth-Ann St Luce are outsiders with odds of 50/1.

The Voice UK shows air from 7PM on BBC One this Saturday.
