Strictly Come Dancing 2015 – Week 1 Betting Update

All the couples have now danced for the first time and there will no doubt have been an effect on all markets with the bookies. So lets have a look at the outright winner and 1st elimination markets as they now look at Coral!

Outright Winner

Peter and Janette– 2/1
Helen and Aljaž – 5/1
Jay and Aliona – 7/1
Georgia and Giovanni – 8/1
Katie and Anton – 9/1
Anita and Gleb – 10/1
Kirsty and Brendan – 14/1
Kellie and Kevin – 20/1
Jamelia and Tristan– 20/1
Anthony and Otlile – 25/1
Ainsley and Natalie – 50/1
Daniel and Kristina – 66/1
Iwan and Ola – 100/1
Carol and Pasha – 100/1
Jeremy and Karen – 100/1

Peter remains the strong favourite to win the series at a very short 2-1. Not much value in that price and a bad week could see his odds lengthen to a more attractive price so even if you think Peter is a dead cert I would hold off on taking that price. Not too much movement in the overall field with the biggest movers being Anita and Gleb coming in from 18-1 to 10-1. Katie and Anton continue to surge. From 40-1 when I first looked at the prices to 16-1 last time and now 9-1. The punters clearly think this could be Anton’s year.

Kirsty’s mediocre performance last night has brought her out from 9-1 to 14-1 however the largest lengthening in prices are reserved for Jamelia and Tristan who have moved from one of the early favourites at 13-2 to a longer shot at 20-1. But that’s nothing on Iwan and Ola who were what I incorrectly described as an attractive 25-1 last time but are now joint long shots with Carol and Pasha and Jeremy and Karen at 100-1. Despite the long price I would be hesitant about taking it as they are clear candidates for the 1st elimination unless they perform better next week!

1st Elimination

Iwan and Ola – 11/4
Carol and Pasha – 3/1
Jeremy and Karen – 9/2
Daniel and Kristina – 11/2
Ainsley and Natalie – 8/1
Anthony and Otlile – 14/1
Kirsty and Brendan – 16/1
Jamelia and Tristan – 18/1
Kellie and Kevin – 25/1
Katie and Anton – 40/1
Jay and Aliona – 50/1
Georgia and Giovannia – 50/1
Anita and Gleb – 50/1
Helen and Aljaž – 100/1
Peter and Janette – 100/1

Despite Ola’s popularity (especially with male viewers) and Iwan being a popular signing when he was announced, their poor show last night has placed them favourites to meet the chop at 11/4. With the exception of these and one or two other movers and a reshuffling of the odds not too much has changed in the 1st Elimination market. Anthony, Kirsty and Jamelia are probably the most attractive bets at 14/1, 16/1 and 18/1 respectively as their current leaderboard positions make them a bit more vulnerable than these prices give them credit for and all 3 of them will need to perform significantly better next week to avoid potentially being in the dreaded dance off.
