Dalton Andre Harris is the hot favourite to win The X Factor 2018 ahead of the final.
The X Factor has its finalists after a surprise triple eviction over the weekend saw two acts booted during the semi-finals on Saturday night and one act sent packing during Sunday’s results show.
Danny Tetley, Brendan Murray and duo Acacia & Aaliyah all lost their places ahead of next weekend's final.
Going into the last weekend of the competition, Dalton Harris isthe firm favourite to take the title as he served up two impressive performances. The Jamaican chose to sing ‘Feeling Good’ by Muse for his first song and ‘SOS’ for ABBA week. Both performances were met with thunderous applause and praise which resulted in his odds shortening further to 2/9 from 2/7 to win.
Anthony Russell’s odds have been slashed ahead of the final after a burst of fresh support came billowing in for the Liverpudlian.
He battled through an illness which saw him on voice rest to give his renditions of ‘Livin on a Prayer’ and ‘Name Of The Game’. Punters got behind Anthony to win as BoyleSports cut his odds all the way into 9/2 second favouritism from his relative outsider price of 9/1.
Scarlett Lee makes up the final three but it isn’t all good news for the Surrey makeup artist as she suffers a drift out to 9/1 from 8/1 to win. The outsider to triumph, Scarlett found herself in the sing-off in Sunday night's show.
Aoife Heffron, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented: “Dalton looks to have the X Factor title in the bag as he once again shortens and is now red hot at 2/9 to win. However punters have also been latching onto Anthony Russell to go all the way with an influx of bets seeing him move into second place in the betting at 9/2 from 9/1.
"His story of overcoming addiction, bond with mentor Louis and how he battled through illness at the weekend has viewers gripped, but will it be enough to topple Dalton?”
