Will.i.am and Sir Tom battling it out for Voice win

April 6th, 2018 News & Events, Press Release, Television

The Voice final takes place this weekend with Will.i.am firm favourite to claim the title with his act Donel Mangena.

The 16-year-old from Southampton has impressed throughout, and the Bookmakers consider him the likely winner.

Should Donel take the win, he will be the second winner for Will.i.am – whose only previous win came in 2014 with Jermain Jackson.

18-year-old Ruti Olajugbagbe under the tutelage of Sir Tom Jones is considered the only real opposition to Donel with the Bookmakers – with Jennifer Hudson’s duet Belle Voci rated as much as 10/1 with Olly Murs’s act Lauren Bannon is 12/1.

“This is very much a two horse race with the brilliant teenagers Donel and Ruti heading the markets by some distance,” said OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton.

“Donel is odds-on at a best of 8/13 whilst Ruti is 7/4 – the other two finalists are just about without a chance according to the Bookmakers here, with Belle Voci 10/1 and Lauren Bannon 12/1.”

Selected Voice final odds:
Donel Mangena 8/13
Ruti Olajugbagbe 7/4
Belle Voci 10/1
Lauren Bannon 12/1
