Dalton Harris odds-on to win X Factor for first time in 2018 series

Dalton Harris is on an unstoppable march towards winning the 2018 series of the X Factor, according to the bookmakers.


Dalton has been wowing the audience since his very first audition and although he was initially overshadowed in the betting by Shan and Misunderstood, he has now given the bookmakers no other option than to make him the favourite to win the series.

The 24-year-old Jamaican has been at the head of the betting for the past few weeks but now, for the first time, he is the odds-on favourite with the bookies after earning rave reviews for his take on the legendary ‘California Dreamin’ track by ‘The Mamas & The Papas’.

“Dalton, you are literally killing it every week,” X Factor supremo Simon Cowell told him after his performance. “You were amazing week 1, week 2… this is probably the best you’ve sounded so far. And I was thinking while I was watching this, it was almost like maybe you needed this platform but, trust me, we needed you on the show because this is what it’s all about… stunning.”

Viewers, bookmakers and punters certainly agree with Cowell’s comments and, as a result, Ladbrokes has now trimmed his outright odds all the way into 8/1, with Scarlett Lee now believed to be his main rival after the bookie slashed her odds all the way in from 10/1 to 4/1 in the wake of this past weekend.

Former favourite Shan, who set X Factor betting records during the audition stage, has seen her odds drift from 3/1 to 5/1, while Anthony Russell remains locked on 6/1 after earning praise for his rendition of the famous Rocky song ‘Eye Of The Tiger’ by ‘Survivor’.

There is a massive jump in the betting from there, with the bookmakers predicting that the days are numbered for the final four contestants in the betting.

Bella Penfold has gone from 20/1 to 25/1 despite receiving some positive comments from the judges this past weekend, while Brendan Murray remains unmoved at 33/1 to stay ahead of Danny Tetley and Acacia & Aliyah at 50/1.
