Brit Awards: Betting on the Osbournes
The Brit Awards, more often than not, are littered with talking points that have nothing to do with the awards themselves. And with Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne hosting tonight’s proceedings, a night of hilarity and calamity is bound to ensue.
Bookie William Hill is so certain that ‘something’ will happen they have opened a book on a number of Osbourne disasters.
Favourite at 3/1 is a bat being thrown on stage (in reference to Ozzy biting the head off a bat at one of his shows, obviously).
You can get odds of 5/1 that Ozzy announces the wrong winner, 10/1 that Sharon has a wardrobe malfunction similar to Janet Jackson in her performance with Justin Timberlake at the Superbowl (please god, no) and odds of 14/1 that Sharon has an anti-Louis Walsh rant on stage.
Not only that, William Hill also have markets open on who will actually win the awards!
Arctic Monkeys are now the favourites to win the best album award with Favourite Worst Nightmare after William Hill saw a large number of late bets.
Mika is favourite to walk away with Best British Male and Leona Lewis for Best British Female.
