Simon Cowell may be the man behind the X Factor TV series, but without his fellow three judges, the TV show would be nothing.
Cheryl Cole is the newest recruit to the TV series and she will mentor the girl category throughout the TV show, and her best hope of winning comes in the form of Rebecca Ferguson who is 6/1 to win.
Cheryl has an unbeaten record in the competition, overseeing the wins of Alexandra Burke and Joe McElderry in the two years she’s been a part of the show, and Cheryl is 2/1 second favourite to be the winning manager.
Dannii Minouge is in her fourth series of the show and is the 13/8 favourite to be the winning manager in this series.
She mentored Leon Jackson to victory in her first appearance on X Factor and holds the trump card in Matt Cardle, the 5/2 favourite to win the X Factor.
Louis Walsh joins Simon as an ever-present throughout the series but has only mentored one winner in the six completed shows, and after being dealt the over 28’s, it’s unlikely that he holds the winner of this series and is the outsider in the top manager betting at 11/2.
Although in Mary Byrne, Louis has an outside chance of holding the winner and the Irish singer has won previous singing competitions in her home country – she is 6/1 joint third favourite to win.
Simon is mentoring the groups and has already lost two acts, and 66/1 is available that he loses his final two acts in Week three.
That is unlikely though considering One Direction are second favourites at 11/4 to win but a group has never won the X Factor.
Simon is optimistic that the boyband holds the key to victory and Simon is 11/4 to be the top judge.
