Brits Set To Shun One Direction Again!

They may be the world’s largest super group but once again the odds from William Hill suggest that for the third year running 1D will not win Best Group at the Brit awards. As it stands Royal Blood are the 13/8 favourites with One Direction offered at 2/1. Coldplay, who have one of the best records at the awards, are 11/4.

“One Direction have a history of getting snubbed at the Brit Awards and our customers expect this dismal run to continue,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

It looks like Ed Sheeran & Sam Smith will be fighting it out for two other major awards with Ed Sheeran 4/9 to win Best Album & the same price to win Best Make Artist
