After a hard and unprecedented year, 2020 is drawing to a close, and whilst it’s been the most difficult year many of us can ever remember, there is plenty to feel optimistic about for the new year ahead.
With progress being made with treatment for the pandemic, life could soon return to some form of normality and for music lovers in particular, 2021 could be a spectacular year with a whole host of artists looking set to tour and release delayed albums.
Looking at the short-term, with Christmas just round the corner there’s plenty to get excited about and although you might not be able to head to one of the UK’s famed Christmas markets this year, WhichBookie have put together a guide to a slightly different type of Christmas market: Christmas betting markets!
The guide includes all the odds and info on everyone’s favourite festive events that take place each year, and as the battle hots up for who will take the coveted crown of Christmas number one, the leading contenders have now been revealed.
LadBaby to be top of the tree?
After a stellar year, emerging artist LadBaby is favourite to be top of the charts on Christmas day according to WhichBookie Christmas Betting Markets, while Justin Bieber is also amongst the favourites, currently priced at 8/1 to be top of the tree on December 25th.
