Sleep deprivation is taking its toll here at Special Bets, But here's our view on tonight's proceedings. We think JS's song choices are OK (Bad Day should suit them well) and so JS and the ever popular Shayne will certainly survive this week.
We think Andy's choice of a Nat King Cole song is a poor one - slow crooning a NKC tune is not likely to have people running for the phones in our view so we would not be backing Andy tonight at any time. He looked uncomfortable during rehearsal for "Easy Lover".
We have a "trading buy" idea tonight on Brenda - We were impressed by Brenda's "I'm Outta Love" on the highlights show. Its a popular recent song and her voice is made for it. We'd back Brenda at 8s available on Betfair (and top up if there are better odds available during the slow Dionne Warwick number) and then lay to close or for a "free bet" at what we think will be lower prices during the Anastacia "bring the house down" track or when the mentors give their undoubtable glowing verdict on her rendition. The potential for amazing Brenda vocal gymnastics will have the audience screaming for more in our view... those readers who heard Simon Cowell on the Lorraine Kelly show will have learned that Simon think Brenda has/will overtake Andy and claim a place in the final 3 acts.
Enjoy yourselves this evening! All feedback gratefully received in the comments section.
