This year’s edition of the talent competition started on 14th April 2018 and weeks 1 and 2 have already been completed. From what we have seen so far, we can already safely say that the 2018 edition of the talent seeking show has the potential to be the best ever.
In this article we will look at the odds offered for the winner of Britain’s Got Talent 2018 offered by four respected bookmakers and in doing so we hope that we will help you choose the best betting operator for your next Britain’s Got Talent 2018 bet.
LVBet is run and operated by Fairload Ltd which is located and regulated in Malta by the Malta Gaming Authority. Betting with them on Britain’s Got Talent 2018 can be highly lucrative for all of the show’s fans who are betting beginners as their 100% Welcome Bonus for new clients can double their initial deposit of €50.
This €50 can be best used if they are placed on LVBet’s main favourite to win the show, the magician Marc Spelmann, who is given attractive odds of 11/2. The innovative magician touched everybody with his tricks and their emotional culmination revealing that his child survived chemotherapy after it was diagnosed that his wife had cancer while being pregnant.
LVBet’s next candidate for the Britain’s Got Talent victory is the group of eleven performers calling themselves Rise (8). They paid a stunning tribute to the victims of the Manchester attacks and are quite expectedly a strong candidate to win the competition.
Joining the top two favourites are DVJ (short for Diversity Juniors) a crew of 10 to 18-year-old street dancers who dazed on the stage and are given odds of 12 by LVBet.
EnergyBet is a Probe Investments Limited brand which is licensed and registered in Malta. The betting operator is renowned for its large collection of bonuses and promotions and its 100% welcome bonus offer for first time clients up to £25 is perfect if betting on Britain’s Got Talent 2018 is your first betting venture with them.
Marc Spelmann is the main favourite to win at EnergyBet and he is given odds of 11/2. The talented magician is followed by the performers from Rise who are close behind him and have odds of 8. DVJ and their impressive performance from week one have odds of 12.
Father Ray Kelly and his rendition of REM’s Everybody Hurts got four yeses from the judges and quickly became a viral YouTube video. This makes the priest another favourite to win and he also has odds of 12.
Another strong candidate is 10-year old Calum Courtney, who won over the judges with his talent and generally cute demeanor. This means that the odds of 14 for him to win the competition shouldn’t go unnoticed by experienced punters.
Ladbrokes Betting & Gaming Ltd. is licensed and regulated by the British Gambling Commission for persons gambling in Great Britain. This fact gives off a sense of security and familiarity to all punters who seek a safe and reliable betting experience.
For the Britain’s Got Talent 2018 competition they offer some very competitive odds for all candidates involved, from the biggest favourites to the biggest underdogs. Their main favourite to win the show and go home with a quarter of a million pounds is magician Marc Spelmann (5/1).
He is followed by Rise (10/1) and surprisingly enough by Lost Voice Guy (12/1) who is not in the top 5 candidates at other betting operators, but manages to get into the top 3 favourites at Ladbrokes. He is a disabled stand-up comedian who cannot speak because he suffers from cerebral palsy. However, his stand-up routine, which utilized the help of a text-to-speech app on his iPad, received ovations and laughter from the audience.
Lost Voice Guy is followed by Father Ray Kelly (14/1), the young Calum Courtney (16/1), Dvj (20/1), and the Vietnamese acrobats, the Giang Brothers (20/1).
William Hill is operated by WHG (International) Limited, a company registered in Gibraltar and licensed and regulated by the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner for customers in Great Britain. They offer a range of promotions and bonuses to their clients such as the Bet £10 and Get £30 in free bets for all new customers and the accumulator insurance offer.
For the Britain’s Got Talent 2018 outright winner market they provide a comprehensive betting offer which includes favourites such as Marc Spelmann (5/1), Rise (8/1), Father Ray Kelly (10/1), Lost Voice Guy (12/1), and Calum Courtney (16/1).
In addition to the favourites, punters can also bet on slightly riskier bets such as Andrew Lancaster (20/1), the impersonator who absolutely nailed his performance which made fun of Donald Trump. Other bets of this type are wagers made on DVJ (20/1) and the Giang Brothers (20/1).
If, however, you wish to go with something more exotic and back a candidate with much lower chances of winning, but significantly higher odds, you can put your money on Sascha Williams (50/1), a circus performer, or on Mr Uekusa (100/1), an international variety artist with a bizarre act which included him being nude.
