Now I know that many of you out there will be rolling your eyes when I mention Dancing on Ice, however this year’s show is certainly full of drama, thanks to the addition of Gemma Collins as a contestant.
But what you may be blissfully unaware of is that most betting sites have a novelty betting market on the TV show, and there is some money to be made if you can actually correctly predict just which celebrity is going to win it.
As for where the smart money is going on this year’s Dancing on Ice, well punters are latching onto the very real chance that Wes Nelson has of winning, and his current win odds of 10/11 whilst low are worth taking, for he does have the very best chance of being crowned this year’s winner for sure.
The second favourite is the professional dancer James Jordan, now most people either like the chap or cannot stand the chap but either way there is a very good chance he may just win this event which is very clearly indicated by his 13/8 win odds.
Could Melody Thornton Spring a Surprise?
Obviously the clock is now ticking and before we know it we will have discover who is the 2019 winner of Dancing on Ice, however, there are several other contestants any of which could spring a surprise and win.
The next one in the betting is on offer at odds of 7/1, to there is a huge jump in the value of that contestants odds with the first and second favourite, and for reference that third favourite to win is currently Melody Thornton.
The Rest of the Celebrities
I doubt you are going to be tempted to bet on any of the other celebrities taking part in Dancing on Ice this year, as lets be fair here, none of them have any realistic chance of winning, but if you are prepared to back any of them there are some huge odds up for grabs for sure.
As such allow me to now quickly rattle through the list of the handful of other celebrities and give you some ideas of where they stand regarding the value of their current win odds, just be aware that this betting market is now in-play so the odds are going to change as the celebs get knocked out of the show.
Next in the betting currently is Saara Aalto whose odds are high at 14/1, and Jane Danson is currently a 20/1 shot, available at some higher odds is Bryan McFadden and those odds right now are 25/1.
There are actually some people out there that do think that Gemma Collins is going to win and if you are one of them then now is the time to secure some massive odds on her winning and for reference those odds are 28/1. Finally you have Ryan Sidebottom who is the rank outsider at odds of a rather large 66/1!
