XFactor 2014: Jay James, Paul Akister, Lola Saunders early favourites

Lola Saunders x factor 2

The likes of Jay James, Paul Akister and Lola Saunders are the early favourites to win The X Factor 2014 this year.

And that's despite Lola having not even had her Arena audition shown yet.

Also proving popular with the bookies as it stands are Ben Haenow and Only The Young, who have also not been shown at Wembley yet.

But it's Jay and Paul who remain the current joint favourites to win the show at odds of 4/1 each, having both taken to the stage at Wembley at the weekend where they sailed through to the bootcamp.

Further on down the betting and the adorable Emily Middlemas is given a 10/1 shot while returning after being turned away in 2012, Jake Quickenden is given odds of 11/1.

Italian Andrea Faustini brought the house down on Sunday night but is only fancid at 12/1, perhaps over a lack of supprot from a home crowd.

Chloe Jasmine is at 14/1 with Lizzy Pattnson, brother of Twlight star Robert, is at 16/1.

After their original song at the weekend got them five yeses, Boy band Overload have made the biggest shift and are now also 16/1 to win.

It fortunately looks like that - at least for now - there is no clear winner, which is sure to please boss Simon Cowell.

Earlier this year he hit out at Sam Bailey's victory on the last series, claiming it was "predictable" from the start of the live shows.

The show continues this Saturday and Sunday with the final Arena auditions on ITV.
