X Factor! Bratavio tipped for first elimination as final 12 sing live for first time

X Factor 2016 results


X Factor duo Bratavio have been tipped for the first elimination of the series.

This weekend The X Factor 2016 goes live and, as well as Bradley and Ottavio, the Overs could be in real trouble as well.

Ahead of tonight's show, bookmakers BoyleSports have had a look at who might be the first act on the chopping block.

And before anyone has sung, Bratavio are being tipped to be the first to make their exit at 13/8, but they are by no means clear favourites with Relley C hot on their heels at 2/1 to go.

Relley's fellow Over category singer Sarra Alto is next in the betting at 7/1 with Boys' Freddy Parker on offer at 8/1. The final of the three Overs, Honey G is surprisingly fifth in line for the axe at the larger price of 10/1.

On the other hand, elimination isn’t an issue for Boys' Matt Terry as he heads the outright betting to win at 9/4. Girls' Emily Middlemas and Louis' group 5 After Midnight may also be in it for the long haul at odds of 4/1 each to take the title.

Aoife Heffron from BoyleSports commented: “Honey G may be the obvious choice to go, but the controversy surrounding the rapper has in fact gained her a following, which we suspect will come out in force to ensure she avoids the first elimination this weekend.

"Bratavio are the current favourites to go at 13/8, but punters have been latching onto Relley C at 2/1.”

She added: “Matt Terry is holding on as the favourite to win, but there has been a shift in support ahead of the live shows this weekend, with punters opting for 5 After Midnight and even Samantha Lavery, who is currently 10/1 to win.”

The X Factor 2016 airs live this Saturday and Sunday night from 8PM on ITV
