Results Of Our 3rd X Factor Survey - Eton Road pick up some momentum;
The early data had far too few responders to be reliable enough to gauge accurately who would be leaving on Saturday night although 4sure were in last place in our poll and we suggested in our previous core poll that the MacDonald Brothers would live to fight another day. Let's take a look at the latest batch of data;
Final results of specialbets.com's X Factor live show survey
Clearly, Ben's performance of the Rod Stewart classic Maggie May was your favourite, followed in the distance by Ashley, Eton Road, Nikitta and Leona;
In terms of your overall favourite act, Ben does not fare quite as well (although firmly in the lead) and Eton Road fare a lot better. Some of you prefer Eton Road to Ben despite considering Ben's performance on Saturday to be superior. Scottish support must be propping up Kerry and The MacDonald Brothers - who have few fans. Robert and Dionne look as though they are unlikely to make it to the December conclusion and you placed 4Sure appropriately at the end;
So what are the betting conclusions from this latest batch of data?
Leona Lewis' current price of 6.8 on the Betfair exchange below still looks too short - despite her having moved out from 4.2 type levels during Saturday's live show. You rate her just 5th overall despite her accomplished singing and vocal support from mentor Simon Cowell.
Eton Road should probably be shorter than current 6.6 prices on the exchanges - although we're mindful that the "Big Band" theme this week may not suit them and for this reason Ray at 15.5 may be worth a trading bet at least as this theme is his cup of tea more than anyone's and the data show his support is still in the double digits and looks like a survivor.
