Janet Devlin is favourite to win the 2011 X Factor again after a strong performance last weekend, with the show being dominated by bickering among the judges.
Kelly Rowland and Tulisa Contostavlos clashed and it appears the former will miss this weekend’s performances and results due to suffering with a throat infection, although some might think this is a smokescreen after she jetted back to America during the week.
Even so, Rowland is hot favourite to be the Winning Mentor, even if Alexandra Burke has been drafted in as a late replacement this weekend. Coral (£30 free bets) offer a best price 5/6 about the Destiny’s Child singer on the basis that she has Devlin and two other strong singers.
Misha Bryan has received plenty of criticism when it has come to being a diva and bullying other contestants, although she remains among the favourites at 5/1 (Paddy Power – £100 free betting), with Sophie Habibis also in with a chance.
The Risk are also likely to feature at the business end of the competition and can be backed at 11/4, with Craig Colton now a single figure quote with plenty of firms.
On the next eviction market, Frankie Cocozza has been leading a charmed life and hovers just above the even money mark to face the axe this weekend, with Rhythmix on offer at 5/1 and Kitty Brucknell a 6/1 chance to exit this competition at the latest stage.
