X Factor is music talent competition which started in the UK but is now held in other countries across the globe. Many people find the early stages of the competition the most entertaining as auditions take place across the country in question. It is worth noting that at this stage of the competition there are competitors with absolutely no talent whatsoever. Acts that successfully navigate themselves through this point of the competition will then be sent to Boot Camps with a certain judge and if they are selected they will then perform at live shows. Acts are divided into four categories; The Boys, The Girls, The Groups and the Over 25’s.
It is when the live shows begin that you can then place bets on the competition. This can be in the shape of the outright winner or on which act will be eliminated at certain stages of the competition.
You place bets on X Factor like you would bet on any other event by a bookmaker. Talent Competitions such as X Factor are found in the ‘Specials’ or ‘TV/Specials’ section of a bookmakers online sportsbook and placing bets online can be done with ease and in an instant. If you prefer you can also place a bet on shop. Just ask one of the cashiers at the desk and they will be able to inform you of what the up-to-date odds are on the X Factor markets. You can also place a bet by calling a bookmaker directly, we do recommend opening an account online previously. This way you can simply quote your username when calling to place your bet.
Betting on X Factor is good way off spicing up the television show and you can sit back on a Saturday or Sunday night in the hope of making some nice profits. Due to the fact that it is the public vote the most important thing to consider is public perception. Whether it be crowd reaction, newspaper coverage or social media activity, this should be crucial to shaping your bet. It is also important to remember that your chosen act will continuously be saved from elimination if the judges like the act. It is important to note this and if the judges continually commend an act there is every chance they will go far in the competition.
In the last seven years all of the four categories have experienced success. It is the boys who have had most success and they have won it three times including last year with Dalton Harris. It is worth noting this. Young, solo male acts continuously attracts the vote of many people including young female voters. The boys go deep in this competition with astounding consistency.
The Over 25’s have won it twice whilst the Girls and Groups have only won it once. This was with Louisa Johnson and Rac-Su.
