Karim Zeroual’s Strictly Cha-Chances Gambled Into SCD Favourite

Karim Zeroual is the contestant punters will have their eye on during the Strictly Come Dancing performances this weekend as he looks set to begin the live shows as favourite to win this season’s Glitterball trophy.

The CBBC presenter will cha-cha to Shawn Mendes’ ‘If I Can’t Have You’ on the first live show this weekend and he has overtaken previous favourite Alex Scott in the betting after moving into…

10/3 from 7/1 with BoyleSports since the airing of the launch show.

Alex Scott has been eased to 9/2 from 4/1 and the former Arsenal full back has also seen EastEnder Emma Barton overtake her in the betting, with her odds cut in half from 8/1 to 4/1.

David James’ stint on Strictly Come Dancing could be a short lived one after the former Liverpool goalkeeper was backed to be the first of this season’s contestants booted off the show. James is set to dance to ‘Three Lions’ by The Lightning Seeds but it may not be football coming home, rather James himself, as he has been gambled into 10/3 favourite from 5/1 to be the first to receive their marching orders.

Anneka Rice also faces a challenge to avoid being the first casualty at 5/1.
