Will-i-am favourite to take The Voice title

February 23rd, 2018 News & Events, Press Release, Television

Will-i-am is the clear favourite to capture the Voice title for 2018 after the judges completed their teams.

The ITV show has gone through the judging phase with will-i-am, Sir Tom Jones, defending champion Jennifer Hudson and new-boy Olly Murs assembling their teams of ten acts each.

Now the battle section begins, where judges see their own singers compete against each-other, whilst there are also ‘steals’ available for judges to rescue an act who otherwise might be sent home.

Despite the fact the Battles have yet to begin, the Bookmakers are already confident that they know who the winner is going to be.

“Last time around on The Voice, the Bookmakers nailed it from the start with Jennifer’s act Mo Adeniran the favourite from the beginning, and he took the title,” said OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton.

“Now Will is favourite to win at 9/4, because he has the favourite for the title in the shape of impressive 16-year-old Donel Magnena, he is as short as 3/1.

“However,  what is interesting is that Sir Tom – who like Will has has won the Voice just once before – has the next best in the betting in the shape of Lucy Milburn and Simon Davies, yet out the four judges he is rated as the outsider at 11/4, so that doesn’t seam to tally.”
