Christmas Number One Odds Slashed: Ronson And Mars Have X Factor In Their Sights!!!
The odds of Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ single Uptown Funk hitting the top of the charts have tumbled considerably. Originally not even in the market as it was due to be released after Christmas, William Hill make it 7/2 second favourite behind the X Factor winner’s single which heads the betting at 1/3.
“Just two days ago, Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars were sitting at 50/1 in the Christmas number one market, but their odds have tumbled considerably and now look like the most likely contenders to beat the X Factor to the festive top spot,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
