Here’s a round up of the latest X Factor 2017 odds ahead of judges’ houses.
Sam Black is back in the X Factor after Louis Walsh decided he made a mistake in letting him go during bootcamp. Black will replace Anthony Russell, who withdrew from the show due to personal reasons.
Judges’ houses stand in the way of Sam Black reaching the live shows, but at 20/1 he is leading the charge in the Boys category.
Grace Davies continues to top the betting as the 7/4 favourite and will be hard to beat having held onto the top spot since her first audition.
Sean and Conor Price, two brothers from Wicklow, are Grace’s main competition at 5/1 with fellow Girl Holly Tandy a close third at 11/2.
The New Girl Group may have only sang once as a group, but at 14/1 they are third in line in the Groups category with Rak-su ahead of them at 9/1.
28-year-old plasterer Matt Linnen is the strongest of the Overs at 16/1 to win.
Aoife Heffron, Spokeswoman for BoyleSports commented “Sam Black is back and returns as the strongest of the Boys at 20/1, despite failing to make the six chair challenge round. Once it was announced Sam would be making his return to the X Factor we saw a burst in support for the Isle of Man native, however it has since died off.”
She added “Grace Davies is undoubtedly the one to beat at 7/4 and given that last few winners of the X Factor have been early and longrunning favourites it bodes well for Davies. Sean and Conor Price are her main threats in the competition and most certainly have the support of Irish punters to win.”
