During Big Brother 11 we've seen a number of people come-and-go
as far as being deemed the bookmakers' Favourite to Win goes,
but things seem to be settling down now.
Indeed, despite the fact that five people will make it to
the Final, the bookies reckon that there are just three housemates
in contention now. However, one of them might be evicted on
Friday, thereby making it a classic two-horse-race.
Corin, Josie and Sam all have short odds with online bookie
Paddy Power at the time of writing, with Josie the 4/6 Favourite,
Corin just behind her at 9/4 and Sam third in the running
At those odds, a £10 bet would make you nearly £7
profit (plus your stake back) if you were to back Josie and
the bet paid off, nearly £23 profit if you backed Corin
and it came right, and £60 if you successfully backed
Sam as the series winner.
Plus, new customers would get a Free £20 Bet
for their trouble. So, you can effectively back two people
for the price of one, and given that there are only three
people in the running, that isn't a exactly a massive risk.
Of course, you could just back one BB11 contestant
now and save your Free Bet to stake on one of the 'Ultimate
Big Brother' housemates when that series gets going next week.

Just to backtrack a bit, we suggested above that one of the
three contenders might fall at the final hurdle, and that
person is Sam. That said, he's actually a good bet, because
if you look at the Polls he's very popular and could become
the Favourite to Win if he can survive the public vote this
If that happens, Sam's odds will inevitably be slashed. So,
whether you like him or not, back him while you can!
