Strictly Come Dancing UK Current Odds

The first episode of Strictly Come Dancing 2019 aired on Saturday the 7th of September

The sixteenth season of the popular Strictly Come Dancing has just kicked off in the UK, and the bookies have already provided us with odds on most likely winners.

As always, the first two weeks will be all preparatory with the contestants practicing and getting ready for the live-shows, which will begin on the 21st of September.

For many, these initial weeks are the most boring, as we don’t get to see the contestants battle it out, and no-one is eliminated in dramatic fashion.

However, if you do know your dancing, it’s an opportune moment to take note of the biggest talents around!

Who Will Be Eliminated First in Strictly Come Dancing UK 2019

The sports presenter Mike Bushell was very optimistic when his participation in the programme was announced, but the bookies do not share the optimism.

Indeed, Bushell is 4/1 to be eliminated in the first round with William Hill, making him one of the favourites to get the earliest boot.

He isn’t the favourite, however. That would be David James – yes, that David James, the former England goalkeeper! – who is 3/1 to be eliminated first (William Hill).

Who Will Win Strictly Come Dancing UK According to the Bookies

One of the early favourites for winning Strictly Come Dancing UK 2019 is the former women’s footballer and current football pundit, Alex Scott.

Why? Sometimes it is difficult to say, as these odds can seem rather random. However, she does have experience from competing athletically at the highest level – something that cannot be said for many of the others! 

Scott is currently 3/1 to win with Paddy Power, and although an interesting candidate, that is a rather low odds for such a big field.

The Made in Chelsea star Jamie Laing was all ready and prepared to suit up for the programme, but he has now sustained an injury and will therefore miss out. Instead, the award-winning actor Kelvin Fletcher has stepped in, and the bookies seem to like the look of him! 

Fletcher is currently priced at 7/1 win Betway, which is a very low price for someone called in as a replacement. However, Kelvin Fletcher’s impressive CV – acting, writing and even racer driving – is probably why he is so highly valued by the bookies.

Betway Offers up to £30 in Free Bets

The ultimate outsider is Anneka Rice, the welsh tv presenter and broadcaster. Currently at 65/1 with William Hill, she could be among the first to be eliminated. However, the dancing hasn’t even started yet, so keep your eyes open during those warm-up programmes!
