Louis Walsh Next For The Chop According To X Factor Odds
Wednesday 13 August 2008 at 14:50
This year the X Factor team will have a new look with Cheryl Cole joining the judges to replace Sharon Osbourne.
Louis Leaving Just A Publicity Stunt?
With the presenters and judges seeming to change every year Paddy Power has create a betting market on which judge or presenter will be next to leave the show. The hot favourite is Louis Walsh and he is 1/2. This price is based on the fact that Louis Walsh was axed from the show last year only to brought back once it had started. He also has had several on air spats with Simon Cowell. These all look very staged though so there may be better odds elsewhere.
Presenters Could Face Sack
Holly Willoughby is next in the betting and she is 3/1. She is joined in the betting by fellow presenter Dermot O'Leary who is 5/1 with Paddy Power. One of these two could be a likely candidate with X Factor constantly freshening up its look.
Minogue And Cowell Have Safe Jobs
Judge Dannii Minogue will be in her second series of X Factor this year and she is 8/1 with Paddy Power. With plenty on other career options open to her, acting and singing being just two, it is highly possible she could soon leave a job that could be described as beneath her. The betting is completed by Simon Cowell who is 50/1. X Factor is Simon Cowell's brainstorm so it seems he would have to sack himself to leave the show. With his critical eye that is entirely possible!
Cowell Favourite To Win
Cowell is the favourite to manage the winner of X Factor at 7/4 with Stan James. Newcomer Cheryl Cole is 11/4 with Stan James to make a winning start like Dannii Minogue did last year with Leon. Minogue is 11/4 with Totesport and Louis Walsh is least likely according to the X Factor odds at 4/1 with Bet365.
