Find out which judge is set for victory in The X Factor 2018

Wednesday 12th September 2018

The new series of The X Factor is well on the way—and with it is a new judging panel waiting to nurture the latest singing talent.

Simon Cowell—the only returning face—is joined by former Take That’s Robbie Williams, his wife Ayda Field, and former One Direction star Louis Tomlinson.

Along with the winner’s market, the bookies also offer odds on which judge will win the series.

And bookmaker Coral makes Louis Tomlinson the favourite to be the winning judge on the ITV singing show—they’re offering odds of 7/4 to succeed on his debut appearance.

Tomlinson is mentoring the boys and Simon Cowell is now 2/1 with the girls, while Robbie Williams (7/2) and Ayda Field (9/2) are both rated as outsiders with the groups and overs respectively.

Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead: “Louis looks to have been given the perfect group with the boys on this year’s X Factor and the first two weeks have already shown the kind of talent he’ll be working with. We now make him favourite to mark his debut as a judge by mentoring the winning act.”

Anthony Russell remains the bookies’ favourite to win the show at 7/1, with Brendan Murray (10/1) and Molly Scott (12/1) the early contestants to make an impression with punters.

“Anthony has attracted more bets but we’re also seeing some strong support from Brendan and Molly, with punters clearly impressed by the trio’s auditions,” added Aitkenhead.

Odds may differ depending on the bookmaker.

The X Factor returns on Saturday on ITV1.
