X Factor 2018 contestants: Latest favourites revealed as live shows near

x factor 2018 judges auditions

Here's a look at the current X Factor 2018 odds with the live shows now just over a week away.

Last weekend saw The X Factor get its first finalists after Simon Cowell whittled the Girls down from six to just three.

Shan is the strongest of not just the Girls category, but the entire competition as she shortens into the now 11/4 favourite having headed the betting at 3/1. Despite Bella Penfold securing the Golden X at the Six Chair Challenge, her odds have been eased out to 14/1 from 10/1.

One Group stole the show during their six-chair challenge, Misunderstood who performed another original track ‘Ghetto Style’. The group is made up of Stephan Benson and Jeffrey Okyere, who appeared on Britain’s Got Talent in 2010 under the name Myztikal, and made it all the way to the semi-finals.

Although they did not receive the Golden X from mentor Robbie Williams, they are in with a shot at taking the title after their odds were slashed from 14/1 to joint second at 4/1.

Irish hopeful, Brendan Murray is also priced at 4/1 alongside Misunderstood with another Boy, Anthony Russell, taking third place in the betting at 9/1.

Aoife Heffron, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented: “Misunderstood were undoubtedly the stand out performers from the Groups and six-chair challenge. The duo had everyone singing their original track ‘Ghetto Style’ and instantly saw their odds crash into 4/1 joint second favourites from 14/1 as punters rushed to get behind them.”

She added “The lads are no strangers to performing and their track Ghetto Style already has over 73K views on their Vevo channel, which currently has 5.6K subscribers, so they most certainly will have the public support should they make the love shows.”
