Sky Bet: Janet Still the Jolly in X Factor Betting

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Oct. 11, 2011) - Janet Devlin remains the early favourite in Sky Bet's X Factor betting after she wowed the judges with her rendition of Coldplay's 'Fix You' on Saturday's first live show.

However, the biggest mover in the X Factor betting market was Manchester's Misha Bryan, whose confident rendition of Adele's 'Rolling In The Deep' and exuberant styling sent her odds plummeting to 4/1 from 10/1.

Other big movers in the X Factor betting included boy band The Risk (11/2 from 20/1) and Craig Colton, whose heartfelt performance of Christina Perri's 'Jar of Hearts' incited a flurry of bets, causing a plunge in his odds from 16/1 to 13/2.

The biggest shock of Sunday night was the premature and tearful departure of 16-year-old Amelia Lily, who had been second favourite in the betting to win the show.

After Sunday's cruel X Factor twist, which saw each mentor being forced to choose one of their acts to send home, the elimination process returns to normal this weekend. The public vote will once again determine which two acts land in the dreaded bottom two before the judging panel decides which act they will save and which they will send home.

Sky Bet has launched an exclusive, new X Factor betting market – 'Who will the judges save?' and make girl band Rhythmix 11/4 favourites to be the ones to narrowly avoid the chop. Sky Bet also offers bottom two betting and is predicting a face-off between rival groups Nu Vibe (11/8) and Rhythmix (6/4).

Sky Bet's X Factor betting expert Helen Jacob said: "This year's X Factor promises to be a very open betting event with some very strong acts indeed. The judges are going to be faced with an agonising decision every week and their decision is often a controversial one. Sky Bet customers will love second guessing the panel and having a flutter on which act they'll send packing."
