Christmas Top TV Programme Market- Update;

UPDATE - We've asked our friends at Paddy Power to keep this market open as long as possible and they've duly obliged - will be open until 10pm Christmas Eve. The prices on Against The Crowd's original article are now a little out of date but we attach his original thoughts. Eastenders has remained the clear favourite, with Doctor Who still looking like an interesting outside chance.

Special Bets Wishes you all a very happy Christmas, don't forget about our new odds comparison site which should be of help getting you best prices over Christmas.

Best, Special Bets.


Special Bets is proud to announce the inaugural guest spot of "specials" expert "AgainstTheCrowd".
A Special bettor for many years, AgainstTheCrowd's recent tipping of Maria Lawson to be eliminated from X Factor (at odds of 40/1!) and Carol Thatcher to win "I'm A Celebrity" (12/1) earned him the acclaim of the Racing Post.


Those of you who find the lack of a bet on Christmas Day difficult to handle are in luck this year. Bookmakers are taking bets on the ‘Top TV Programme ’ the show that has the highest UK Viewing figures on Christmas Day Settled in accordance with BARB UK.

contenders are the ‘soaps’ Eastenders and Coronation Street..& the Dr. Who Christmas Special "Christmas Invasion"

Paddy Power are running a comprehensive book and are best priced on 2 of the main contenders. I feel Dr.Who - 'Christmas Invasion' at 9/2 is the best value at present. It has the combination of a seasonal theme, a new Dr. Who, and relatively weak schedule opposition in ‘Millionaire ‘Celebrity Special’.

Add to that, good viewing figures in its spring season and the fact that at heart, every generation loves it we could have a runaway success.

The professionals have already moved in on Eastenders which has a genuine favourite’s chance at odds on with the same firm. The major ITV soap Coronation Street is
thus available at a generous looking and biggest available 9/4.

Those looking for a shock might consider the ‘other soap’ Emmerdale at 33/1 or Only Fools’ spin off ‘The Green Green Grass’ at bigger odds…
