Bupsi gambled on to be first X Factor elimination

Leading bookmaker Coral has seen an early gamble on Bupsi being the first contestant eliminated from the X Factor in the opening live show of the season this weekend where she has been cut from 9-4 into 11-8 following a flurry of bets. Reggie ‘N’ Bollie are the 11-4 second favourites to be the first act knocked out, while bad boy Mason Noise is available at 6-1.

In the outright betting for the show, Louisa Johnson is the 9-4 favourite to be crowned the winner and she has been the most popular selection so far to go all the way.

“The betting suggests Bupsi has a fight on her hands to avoid becoming the first contestant eliminated from the live shows at the weekend where her odds have come crashing down this week,” said Coral’s John Hill.

“In the outright betting, it’s not all one-way traffic for Louisa Johnson, however, she has by far been the most popular contestant and we saw a spike of bets on her after her spectacular performance at Judges’ Houses,” added Hill.
