X Factor Update 15th November- Hannah Facing Exit Door , As Sam Bailey Wins Nations Hearts

Well with 5 weeks completed it has started to heat up in the X factor world with all the weaker acts mostly eliminated. Last week saw singer/ songwriter Abi Alton leave after struggling to connect with the audiences in the different theme weeks.

Hannah Barrett has a fantastic range and seems to have been crying more than signing in this series, she has been saved twice already and Sharon Osbourne has already said she will get no more reprieves from here. This means that if she does go to the bottom two again Deadlock is the best she could hope for with each judge likely to vote for their own act.

Another potential act up for the chop is teen heartthrob Sam Callahan, the man who Gary Barlow loves to hate. He will go as soon as he is in the bottom 2 and is turning into this series Chris Maloney. For us at the Betting agency we do believe it is between these two for elimination this week.

At the front end of the competition the public seem to be behind prison officer Samantha Bailey (11/8) as she comes out and smashes every song each week, you get the feeling she has every house wife in the United Kingdom behind her as she seems like a normal lady who is trying to follow her dreams.

Though Sam seems to be in the box seat our fancy from the start Rough Copy have continued to impress in the competition and have come in to (5-1)(we tipped them at 16-1 at start) plus the likes of Tamera Foster (9/2), Nicholas McDonald (4-1) and Luke Friend (9-1).

This week we believe that Hannah at 5/4 @Bet365 to be eliminated Sunday is the bet to be on, she surely will be in bottom 2 and judge’s patience is up.


Strictly Come Dancing

We have flip flopping favourites on Strictly this week after a faultless performance by Natalie Gumede at the weekend. Is she value at 7/4?  or has suddenly Sophie Ellis Baxtor become a good bet at 7/2. Some big action for Abby Clancy has seen her shorten in to just 6/1 from 11/1 and the boys are massively on the drift.

Our bet is to take some of the 25/1  on offer about Ben Cohen – e/w. He will keep improving as he has that sportsman’s work ethic and women will keep voting for him. We think he will make it to the final 3 and see you get the place part of you bet up at least. On the winner front there is still some value left in Sophie at 7/2 backed each way. She will be a lot shorter in the final.

Next elimination for me is torn between Patrick Robinson at 5/1 and Rachel Riley at 7/2. I’m going to go for Patrick Robinson to go next at a tasty 5/1 with Bet 365.
