X Factor 2016 winner revealed? Saara Aalto is red hot favourite ahead of the final


Saara Aalto remains the favourite to win The X Factor 2016 final as and Matt Terry prepare to face off.

5 After Midnight are predicted to finish third in this weekend's final, the latest odds from the bookies suggest.

Emily Middlemas missed out on a place in the X Factor Final as she was the latest act to be voted off on Sunday night.

Just three contestants remain for next weekend’s final and bookies BoyleSports have seen a major flip-flop at the head of the betting.

Finnish native Saara is now the new favourite to win at 4/5 having been available at 9/4 last Friday. As a result, Matt Terry, who had been favourite from week one of the live shows, has seen his price ease out to 13/8 from 8/11.

Boyband, 5 After Midnight, are the outsiders of the remaining three at 5/1 as they bid to give Louis Walsh his second victory as a mentor in the competition having last mentored Shayne Ward to win back in 2005.

Liam Glynn from BoyleSports said: “The X Factor betting has seen a flip-flop with Saara Aalto taking over as the new favourite to win. Having been as big as 66/1 back in mid-October, the Finish native is now odds on at 4/5 to claim the crown.”

He added: “Louis Walsh hasn’t been a winning mentor since Shayne Ward won in 2005 and despite his Boyband 5 After Midnight being the 5/1 outsiders, he can’t be ruled out.”
