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.

Strictly 2015 Post Launch Betting Update

With the launch show over and the BBC finally caught up with announcing the couples it’s time to take another look at the betting and see how the partnerships have affected things. Also markets for the 1st elimination have opened so lets take a look at those too:

Outright Winner

Peter and Janette– 5/2
Helen and Aljaž – 13/2
Jamelia and Tristan– 13/2
Jay and Aliona – 13/2
Georgia and Giovanni – 7/1
Kirsty and Brendan – 9/1
Anthony and Otlile – 14/1
Katie and Anton – 16/1
Anita and Gleb – 18/1
Kellie and Kevin – 20/1
Ainsley and Natalie – 20/1
Iwan and Ola – 25/1
Daniel and Kristina – 40/1
Carol and Pasha – 66/1
Jeremy and Karen – 100/1

There’s been quite a bit of change in the market particularly in the middle order. Peter Andre remains the early favourite and has come in from 4/1 to 5/2. Jamelia has joined Helen and Jay as the second favourite on 13/2. The biggest mover is Katie whose partnership with popular pro Anton has moved her in from 40/1 to 16/1. Ainsley has drifted out from being one of the early favourites at 11/1 to 20/1. Despite being partnered with previous winner Ola, Iwan has drifted to 25/1 from 11/1 which is quite a tempting price. The tail end of the market remains largely unchanged but prices have drifted out to try and tempt crazy punters to have a punt on no hopers.

1st Elimination

Jeremy and Karen – 3/1
Carol and Pasha – 4/1
Daniel and Kristina – 5/1
Iwan and Ola – 8/1
Ainsley and Natalie – 10/1
Kellie and Kevin – 10/1
Anita and Gleb – 11/1
Katie and Anton – 12/1
Anthony and Otlile – 14/1
Kirsty and Brendan – 22/1
Georgia and Giovannia – 33/1
Jay and Aliona – 40/1
Jamelia and Tristan – 40/1
Helen and Aljaž – 40/1
Peter and Janette – 100/1

For the first elimination basically take the outright winner market and flip it on its head. Jeremy is the clear favourite to make the first chop with Carol and Daniel not far behind.
