cranberryDog46 Posted August 21, 2010 Report Share Posted August 21, 2010 Was going to wait until the live shows started but got excited by tonight's show. In my opinion successful X Factor betting is all about understanding which acts will have the broadest appeal and claim the crucial Mums Grannies and Kids Vote. If there are any golden rules then they would be: Any female acts who trade on sex appeal too strongly won't last long, especially if they are a group. Never assume the favorite will win, people who have traded below evens have lost, conversely if someone is a sure thing then evens is a cracking price. Never assume an outsider can't win, I've had a winner I backed at 50s in American Idol, Leon Jackson could be backed at 15, 5 minutes before he won! And finally always try and remember It's not a singing competition, it's a popularity contest for singers. best prices are usually available on Betfair and it's usually a good idea to green up if you can.
