Bookies BoyleSports report this week support for the newbie to mentor the winning act.
Initially Rita Ora, Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini were all locked together at 12/5 in the betting but in the past 24 hours following a flurry of bets, Rita Ora has been supported into the clear 2/1 favourite to provide the winning act.
BoyleSports has also a winning act market which sees the Boys currently head the betting at 15/8. Its then 9/4 that the Girls will do the business whilst its 4/1 that a group will follow in the success of former winners Little Mix. The Overs can be backed at 11/4 to be crowned the 12th X Factor winner.
BoyleSports’ spokesperson Liam Glynn said: “Rita Ora has been all the rage to be the X Factor winning judge and following some chunky bets over the weekend she has now been made the clear favourite to provide the winning act.”
He added: “We will be in for a right bashing if Rita Ora can manage to find the winner of the 12th edition of the X Factor with one punter certainly having faith in the Toxic singer having placed €1000 on her at 12/5 on Saturday.”
The X Factor will be back on telly later this year.
