X Factor 2016: Saara Aalto is the favourite for a Fright Night exit


Saara Aalto has been tipped for a Fright Night exit on The X Factor 2016 this week.

Or it could be Four of Diamonds and Ryan Lawrie who are in danger of elimination.

Saara is again the favourite to be in the firing line for the X Factor axe, despite making it through on the public vote and avoiding the sing off for the first time last week. The Finnish singer is the 7/4 favourite to go, but is not the only act in danger.

Four of Diamonds narrowly escaped elimination when the judges opted to send Relley C home, however they may not be so lucky this weekend as they are hot on Saara’s heels for the chop at 9/4.

Also on offer at 9/4 is Ryan Lawrie, who was saved by the lifeline vote for a second time, suggesting he may be in for a real fright on Fright Night.

At the other end of the betting, Matt Terry appears to be unstoppable in the race for the X Factor crown as he continues to head the betting at red hot odds of 4/6. 5 After Midnight are his only real rival at 9/2 with Emily Middlemas next, but at the larger price of 10/1.

Aoife Heffron from BoyleSports commented: “Saara Aalto impressed last week, but it seems the axe of elimination is hanging over her head once again as she edges favouritism for elimination at 7/4.”

She added “Both the 4 of Diamonds and Ryan Lawrie will need to up their game for Fright Night, having both featured in the bottom three only to be saved last week. In the Outright betting it looks as though it’s Matt Terry’s to lose as punters continue to get behind him every week regardless of his short odds.”
