Kelvin Fletcher Shortens To Lift Glitterball Trophy

Strictly Come Dancing 2019

Outright Betting

Karim Zeroual and Michelle Visage took the highest scores of the night on Saturday on the first elimination weekend of Strictly Come Dancing, but it’s Kelvin Fletcher who is still the favourite.

BoyleSports have cut his price into 6/5 from 13/8 following his impressive Waltz routine with his partner Oti Mabuse that earned him a score of 28 from 40 with 7s from all four judges. Kelvin scored 32 the previous week after his excellent Samba on the first live show of the series but the punters are still showing their support for the ex-Emmerdale actor.

Former footballer and sports presenter Alex Scott seen her odds shorten in the ante post market for this year’s Strictly Come Dancing. BoyleSports make the former Arsenal Women’s captain 15/2 from 10/1 to dance her way to victory after her cool Cha Cha Cha dance.

Karim Zeroual finished this weekend top of the scoreboard from across the two weeks with a combined score of 63 points. Karim and pro partner Amy Dowden danced a Foxtrot to score 32 points, the joint highest marks of the night and is the 4/1 second favourite in the ante post market.

At the bottom end of the scoreboard there was bad news for both sports stars David James and James Cracknell with the latter now 8/11 from 11/10 to be the first contestant axed from the show.

Kelvin Fletcher was a late sub for Jamie Laing who couldn’t take part in the show following an injury, but he has earned himself a spot at the top of the market already.

Kelvin was introduced at 10/1 and over the last couple of weeks has plummeted into the 6/5 favourite to lift the glitterball.
