Alex Scott To Waltz Her Way To Strictly Title?

Former footballer and sports presenter Alex Scott seen her odds shorten again in the ante post market for this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.

We’ve made the former Arsenal Women’s captain 7/2 favourite from 9/2 to dance her way to victory.

Scott is a popular choice with punters having made 140 appearances for the England Women’s national team as well as securing a Super Sunday spot on Sky Sports making her the first female pundit on the channel.

The 34-year old star won last year’s Sport Relief Strictly special so it’s no wonder she is the clear ante post favourite.

One of her main dangers according to the betting will be former Coronation Street barmaid Catherine Tyldesley, who has moved into joint second favourite after being gambled into 7/1 from 12/1.

Another mover in the market is Made In Chelsea star Jamie Laing who is now 7/1, trimmed from 10/1. The reality TV star has admitted he hates losing at anything so will be a competitive contestant.

Olympic gold medallist James Cracknell has been cut into 16/1 from 20/1. The 47-year old is swapping his oars for dancing shoes and is starting to pick up some momentum from the punters.
