Jimmy Balito’s into 5/1 from 16/1 in ‘The Voice UK’ Betting Following Tribute to his Late Father

The first of the Voice UK knockouts shook up the outright betting after two outsiders made it through to the live shows on Saturday.  Team Olly’s Jimmy Balito survived his knockout battle after impressing with his rendition of Radiohead’s ‘High & Dry’. The emotional performance saw Balito pay tribute to his late father who passed away recently. It struck a chord with punters who rushed to support the Essex lad to win backing him into BoyleSports third favourite at 5/1 from his relative outsider odds of 16/1.

Another outsider who saw their odds slashed (10/1 from 33/1) as a result of their Knockout triumph is Team Will’s NXTGEN who made it through to the semi-finals as a result of their performance of ‘Runnin’ by Naughty Boy featuring Beyoncé.

Nicole Dennis, who has yet to secure her spot in the live shows, remains the market leader at 5/2.  But Moya, who was one of the four acts to book their place in the live shows on Saturday, is unchanged in the betting.  She is 4/1 second favourite and if you have a Voice free bet we recommend this is the place to put your wager.

Aoife Heffron, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented: “The first of the knockouts brought with it some shocks and surprises, most notably Jimmy Balito’s incredible performance. The support which forced our traders to slash his odds from 16/1 to 5/1 has made him one to watch ahead of the live shows.
