Joe Sugg Sambas Up Strictly Betting To Tackle Favourite

YouTuber Joe Sugg is one to watch in the race for the Strictly Come Dancing crown after he closed in on favourite Stacey Dooley after the weekend performances.

Joe scored 32 for his samba to Hanson’s 1990s hit ‘MMMbop’ and saw his odds on winning the competition cut into 12/5 from 7/2 by BoyleSports, closing the gap on 6/4 favourite Stacey Dooley. Joe is now a red hot 1/8 shot to be the best placed male come the final standings after Danny John-Jules was sent packing at the weekend.

Former Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts top scored with 39 but that hasn’t been enough to sway punters in her favour and she has actually drifted out to 7/1 from 6/1 to get her hands on the glitterball trophy.

Faye Tozer also booked her spot for this weekend’s highly anticipated visit to Blackpool’s famous Tower Ballroom but she has also been eased in the betting to 9/2 from 3/1 despite outscoring all but one of her fellow celebs with her jive.

The nerves will be jangling as much as the sequins this weekend at Blackpool and…

if the trends continue in Joe’s favour we could soon have a new favourite.

The bulk of bets since the weekend performances have been placed either on him or Stacey so punters are making it out to be a two-horse race at this stage.
