Louisa Is The New Leona: 1/5 Favourite Is All But Certain To Win X Factor

Louisa Johnson is the red hot favourite to win this year’s X Factor according to bookies William Hill. Since appearing on the first show, Louisa has always been the favourite in the betting, opening at 5/1 and tumbling to 1/5 (bet £5 to win £1 profit). Since the start of the show, 37% of all X Factor wagers have been for the Essex girl hinting that not only is she the bookies’ favourite but also the public’s favourite.

Reggie n Bollie are 9/2 and Che is 14/1.

“Louisa was the last act of the very first show and since then she has been favourite to win,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “Not since Leona Lewis have we seen someone so dominant in the X Factor betting.”
