The Apprentice is a business-styled reality game show that has been broadcasted on the BBC since 2007. The candidates on The Apprentice are tested weekly through business-themed tasks, which they perform in groups. Two teams compete against each other in every episode, as their business skills are tested in an effort to avoid the boardroom.
The team that wins the task are rewarded with a prize and advance to the next stage of the process. Whereas, the losing team are faced with an extensive review of their performance in the boardroom, one of the contestants getting fired!
The gruelling tasks put the contestants through their paces as they compete to make it to the end, where they can win a cash investment towards their business plan.
When betting on The Apprentice there are a couple of things to consider. One thing to focus on is the contestants that stand out from the beginning. As the progress of the contestants is solely based on the decision of businessman Lord Sugar and his two aids, it is also important to focus on what they think of the contestants's performances.
Candidates that perform strongly and are willing to put themselves forward to be performance managers in tasks, tend to be favourites in Apprentice betting. You should take into consideration the contestant’s characteristics that make them the ideal winning apprentice.
Viewers will have their say on each contestant through social media too, so following relevant hashtags on Twitter is a great way to see how the Apprentices perform in the weekly tasks. The performances will gauge how the odds will be allocated to the contestants - this is common when it comes to specials betting.
It can be quite difficult to predict who will win in The Apprentice as there can be many strong business men and women in the competition. To help you with your Apprentice betting here are a couple of pointers to look out for when watching the ever-popular show.
As this is a business game show, it is important that an informed business-style decision is made when betting on The Apprentice. As with other television shows, such as Britain’s Got Talent or the X Factor, having an Apprentice betting strategy is key to success. Firstly, you need to decide which type of strategy you are planning to use.
Apprentice betting is updated by top specials sites after each episode, so you could choose a long bet, backing a contestant at the beginning of the show, or you could let the first few episodes play out and use those to look for your selection.
The favourites at the start of the show can often be the strongest candidates at the end, but the experience can also improve others. Understanding the Apprentice betting is simple as the apprentices considered to have the best chance of winning will be at the top of the bookmaker's list.
They will be priced with the shortest odds - meaning you win less if you back them to win, than you would if you backed an outsider to win, and they obliged. Using the Apprentice betting tips above you will be able to eliminate some of the contestants from the competition to ensure you have a successful bet.
It is no surprise that The Apprentice has a competitive audience looking to invest in a bet on the business men and women of the competition. The Apprentice odds reflect how the candidates portray their business skills throughout the series and this has brought a significant interest in Apprentice betting.
Each year the series has brought betting success to punters - for those who have backed the favourites and also the outsiders. In 2017, for example, the 4/6 favourite for The Apprentice Final was Sarah Lynn.
At the start of the series she had been priced at 10/1. Her fellow finalist James White was 11/8 in the last episode, but had been 20/1 before the first. The pair jointly won the 2017 edition.
