X Factor 2016: Saara Aalto tipped go this week - third time unlucky?


Saara Aalto is being tipped for The X Factor boot once more this weekend.

Poor Saara from Finland - or whatshername from Norway, as mentor Sharon Osbourne would say -has been in the bottom two twice now.

And unfortunately that looks set to continue as Saara heads the X Factor Next Elimination betting at 8/11.

Ryan Lawrie was saved by the public on Sunday when he found himself in the bottom three; however the threat of elimination remains as he is priced at 6/4 to make his exit.

But who else could be in danger? Relley C is next in the betting, but at the much bigger price of 8/1 with newly returning girl group 4 of Diamonds right behind her at 9/1.

On the other hand, Matt Terry is going into the third week of the X Factor Live Shows as the red hot favourite to win after his odds shortened further from Evens to 4/5.

5 After Midnight are Matt’s only key rivals in the competition thus far at 11/4 with Emily Middlemas and Samantha Lavery next at 12/1 apiece.

Aoife Heffron from bookies BoyleSports commented: “Saara Aalto has dodged the elimination bullet twice, but if she finds herself in the sing off this weekend she is 8/11 to be firmly in the elimination firing line.”

She added: “5 After Midnight put the pressure on Matt Terry after the dust of last weekend settled on Monday, as the trio’s odds were cut to 5/2 from 4/1. However going into this weekend’s performance order has resumed for long running favourite Matt as he shortens to 4/5 and 5 After Midnight drift slightly to 11/4.”
