Ricky’s Team To Run Riot In Battle Rounds
The Voice UK
The Blind Auditions are over, the teams are full and the Voice UK is off to the Battle rounds. Team Ricky is the strongest of the lot, with the Kaiser Chiefs’ frontman the now 2/1 favourite from 9/4 to have the winning act.
Will is hot on his heels however with his squad at 5/2 and both Rita and Tom currently lagging behind at 3/1 to win.
Stevie McCrorie has been the long running favourite and looks to be unbeatable at 11/4 ahead of the battle rounds.
Sheena McHugh, of team Will, is next in the betting at 5/1, with Clark Carmody, from team Rita, and Howard Rose, from team Tom, both on offer at 8/1.
The coaches had very little room left on their teams but did have spots to fill. Autumn Sharif topped of Ricky’s team and went into the betting at 25/1. Rita had two spots left and filled them with swing singer Mitch Miller, who is 20/1 to win, and toilet roll sales person Vanessa Hunt, who can be backed at 33/1.
Tom also had two places left on his team and they went to country singer Roisin Geraghty-McDonagh and Shetland native Lisa Ward, who are 66/1 and 50/1 respectively. Will’s final spot went to Andrew Marc but at 100/1 he is the biggest outsider of the lot.
Going into the battles Stevie is most certainly the one to beat at 11/4. Ricky’s team is looking very strong having the favourite on his side and he has been cut into the 2/1 favourite from 9/4 to grab his very first win this year.
Will’s final act, Andrew Marc, may be right down the bottom of the betting at 100/1 but with the second favourite, Sheena McHugh, on his side it makes him Ricky’s main rival at present.
