Britain's Got Talent Winner Odds Comparison - TV

Britain’s Got Talent is really starting to get exciting as the live semi-finals are just around the corner and with all five Golden Buzzer acts now known, we have a very good idea of who the leading contenders are. Betting on Britain’s Got Talent gets bigger and bigger every year and if you want to put your money where your mouth is and back your favourite in the outright winner market, you should consider reading our BGT preview first. We’ve got the best live odds comparison for all the top acts, as well as analysis, our own predictions and our betting tips for who we think will be crowned the Britain’s Got Talent winner of 2015.

The favourite in the bookies’ eyes is Calum Scott and given the likeable singer got Simon’s Golden Buzzer it’s easy to see why he’s priced at odds of just 4/1 with Sportingbet. The recruitment officer, from Hull, has a genuinely excellent voice, the right mix of humility and charisma and is good looking in an accessible way that should appeal to a wide range of people of different ages. The 26-year-old is a very worthy favourite and with the potential to harness a strong regional vote from Yorkshire we think odds of 4/1 are solid and as such he is our first and main BGT betting tip.

Making pre-final predictions is always a dangerous game of course and even come the grand final itself there have been enough shocks previously to suggest that putting all your Britain’s Got Talent eggs in one basket might not be the wisest move. The second favourite is UDI, a remarkable dance troupe from Siberia. However, despite their brilliant and highly original routine, that contains elements of shadow puppetry, gymnastics, dance and brilliant lighting effects, odds of just 4/1 seem far too short to us. Whilst there have been overseas winners of BGT, in general the voting public relate better to British acts, whilst there can be little emotional connection to a large group, most of whom don’t speak English. Moreover, last year a similar act, Light Balance, failed to make the final despite wowing a lot of people.

Next in the betting come Revelation Avenue, who were given Amanda’s Golden Buzzer. This gospel/soul choir are undoubtedly talented and come across very well but we think they lack the wow factor and again may suffer from being a group and thus harder to “get to know”.

Our second betting tip, therefore, having predicted that these other well fancied acts won’t quite have what it takes to go all the way, is Emma Jones. The young opera singer provided a “Susan Boyle” moment and given operatic acts have done well in recent years we think odds of 10/1 with BetVictor look like very good value. She has a decent back story and her slightly nervous persona may well gain her plenty of votes, whilst her mesmerising voice is sure to win her lots more.

So, if you fancy a bet – or two – on BGT this year there are our tips: Calum Scott to win with an each way bet on the outright winner market on Emma Jones a nice back-up plan.
