Strictly Come Dancing Odds 2023: Annabel Croft Closing In On Ellie Leach
This year's Strictly Come Dancing title race has looked almost over in recent weeks, with Ellie Leach in a commanding position at the top of UK betting sites.
However, former tennis ace Annabel Croft looks to be making a late play at the championship.
In another series twist, Nigel Harman and Bobby Brazier have gone from joint-favourites to win the Glitterball Trophy to favourites to depart the competition in the past six weeks.
Angela Scanlon was also in contention early in the series, but she departed last weekend, despite achieving her highest score of the series the previous week.
This weekend is Musicals Week on Strictly and it looks set to be a Wicked couple of episodes.
Ellie Holding On To Strictly Favouritism
Ellie remains odds-on favourite to win the Glitterball Trophy on Strictly Come Dancing betting sites, but she has lengthened in price for the first time in weeks.
The former Coronation Street actress has gone from 1/4 to 5/18 this week and while that isn't a huge drift, it comes as a surprise when it looked as though Ellie had one hand on the Glitterball recently.
However, Ellie backers shouldn't be too concerned just yet.
She has topped the leaderboard four times throughout the series, including in four of the last five weeks, so the soap star will be tough to overcome.
That task becomes especially hard if she manages to achieve the show's first 40 out of 40 points score of the series this weekend.
Ace Annabel On The Rise
Annabel's odds have halved on specials betting sites in the space of a week.
She was 8/1 on Monday, and is now just 10/3 with most UK bookmakers for Glitterball glory.
Annabel was a massive 25/1 this time last week and her rise to second favourite comes as a bit of a surprise.
She is yet to top the leaderboard in the first 10 weeks of the competition, but did put in two impressive performances, worth 36 and 35 points, in past fortnight.
However, just two weeks ago, Annabel was a staggering 125/1 to win the series and just 5/2 second favourite to be eliminated from the show.
Last week, she was just 9/4 to depart the dancefloor, but the star is now out to 5/1 for a Week 11 exit.
Next Strictly Come Dancing Elimination Odds
Nigel's Tough Task
Former Strictly favourite Nigel has it all to do this weekend if he is to overcome the odds on betting apps and remain in the competition.
Former EastEnders star Nigel is the 5/4 favourite to depart the contest and he is now a massive 28/1 to win the Glitterball, from 12/1 at the beginning of the week.
There was a time when Strictly victory looked to be between him and current EastEnders actor Bobby Brazier. But the pair are now the two at the bottom of the market to triumph.
Bobby is 20/1 with most UK bookmakers to win the show, but 7/4 second favourite to go home.
Layton Williams has topped the leaderboard an incredible six times - the most out of any contestant in the series - but he has drifted once again, as punters continue to stay away.
The actor could thrive during Musicals Week after previously starring in the likes of West End shows Everybody's Talking About Jamie and Billy Elliot The Musical.
But he is 16/1 with Bet365 to win the series, and 11/2 to be eliminated on Sunday night.
