Susan Boyle Betting

Scottish singing sensation, Susan Boyle, was said to be in good spirits heading into Saturday night's much anticipated finale of Britain's Got Talent as betting on the show reaches record numbers.

The 48-year-old Boyle remains favourite to beat nine other other acts vying for the £100,000 prize and the chance to sing at this year's Royal Variety Performance.

Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond backed Boyle, not surprisingly. 

"Susan Boyle has put her home town of Blackburn, West Lothian, well and truly on the map.

"Her outstanding performances in singing I Dreamed a Dream and Memory have catapulted her to global stardom.

"Over the past couple of months, Susan has wowed the judges and public with her incredible voice and display of enormous talent. I'll be tuning in to cheer her on and I'm sure everyone in Scotland will be wishing her well.

"I'm convinced she's got what it takes to be a winner in tonight's final,' he said.

Susan Boyle was listed with 10/11 odds at Sportingbet heading into the Saturday evening finale.  For US customers looking to bet on Susan Boyle, Sportsbook.com promised a payout of $10 for every $18 bet (the total return $28 should she win the talent competition).   Boyle at one time had been a huge favorite to win. 

"There is definitely some amazing value in betting on Susan Boyle, all things considered," commented Payton O'Brien of Gambling911.com. 

Millions of dollars have already been bet on this season's Britain's Got Talent, making it one of the most wagered on television shows ever.
