X Factor Final: Rak-Su Favourites But Bookies In Fear Of Grace

Rak-Su are the 2/5 favourites to win this year’s X Factor with William Hill, who make Grace Davis the 10/3 second favourite with Kevin Davy White the outsider at 6/1.


Grace Davis has been by far the best backed contestant over the duration of the show with 17% of all wagers being for her to win the show.


“Grace was the long-time favourite having appeared on the first show and it was only a couple of weeks after the live shows started that Rak-Su started to be considered contenders,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “They have attracted much of the recent money but Grace remains our worst result.”


Rak-Su have attracted 12% of all bets placed on the show, with Kevin Davy White attracting 8%.


X Factor 2018 winner: 2/5 Rak-Su; 10/3 Grace Davis; 6/1 Kevin Davy White


Christmas number one single: 1/2 Ed Sheeran (ft Beyonce); 5/1 Wham/George Michael; 7/1 Choirs With Purpose; 7/1 X Factor winner; 10/1 BAR
