We’re down to the final three contestants in this year’s X-Factor final lighting up this first weekend in December - so who is the favourite to go on and win the lot on Sunday night? What Are The Odds looks at the outright winner favourite for the X-Factor 2017.
The absolute firm favourites to be crowned winners on Sunday are Rak-Su, the group mentored by judge Simon Cowell are backed as such by bookmaker Paddy Power with short odds of 4/9 (1.44). It’s hard to argue given their marketability and slick performances that have seemingly won over the British voters.
However, if Rak-Su slip up or don’t have a song that really brings out their best in the live finals then the next most likely to win is Grace Davies with odds of 10/3 (4.33). Singer-songwriter Grace needs to keep on-form in this final weekend showdown and look to get the bookmaker shuffling their odds and predicitions ahead of the Sunday night decider.
If the odds are anything to go by then the X Factor 2017 is for either Rak-Su or Grace Davies to lose, with Kevin Davy White making up the numbers in this final market to win with a price of 6/1 (7.00) - much further behind the frontrunners and it will take something special to see the supposed ‘top two’ moved when it comes down to choosing the ultimate winner.
However, Kevin has impressed and has won the Prize Fight Winner on a couple of occasions in this series so there’s still every chance that bookmakers could be left scrambling on what would be considered a huge upset victory.
