British Breakthrough Act 2018

Please keep in mind that all odds mentioned are accurate at the time published on 10:31 AM, 05/02/2018 and are likely to change over time.

Every year the BRIT Awards give us the new pop kings and queens of Great Britain. Artists that have hit worldwide fame by storming the music charts thanks to their talent and mix of fortunate events. Now, when the British Breakthrough Act nominees have been announced, we can take a look where to bet on the next winner of the Breakthrough Act award, one of the more exciting awards at the ceremony.

This year’s nominees (or last year’s nominees to be more exact) include hot and exciting prospects such as Dua Lipa, the most nominated artist at the BRIT awards, Dave, an independent artist, as well as Loyle Carner, J Hus and Sampha, the winner of the 2017 Mercury Prize.

The competition is tough nevertheless. All of the artists either have won something or have been nominated in other categories. For example, J Hus is up for two different awards; Loyle Carner is nominated for the British Male award as well, while Sampha’s debut album has already received an award. Not to mention Dua Lipa, whose chances to walk out with five different awards are very high. Here is what the odds say.


Coral, one of the biggest online bookmakers originating from the UK posted the odds immediately after the announcing of the nominees. According the Coral’s odds makers, the biggest prospects for winning the British Breakthrough Act Award goes to Dua Lipa, of course. Standing at odds 2/1, this artist has the potential to walk away with a handful of other awards.

Next on the list is J Hus standing at 4/1, Sampha at 6/1, Loyle Carner at 10/1 and Dave at 20/1. In case you do not want boring predictable outcomes, go for Dave and those massive odds! A bet of £5 can get you £105 if Dave wins.

At Coral, every new bettor is treated with a welcome free bet of £20, which comes with your first deposit and first ever bet as a new member. Bet £5, and you get qualified for £20 as a bonus. Use the bonus to bet on various sporting events, including the BRIT awards.


The same situation is to be found at Ladbrokes as well. Dua Lipa is the absolute favourite with odds 2/1, followed by J Hus (4/1), Sampha (6/1), Loyle Carner (10/1) and Dave (20/1), so it is obvious where most of the bets will go.

Ladbrokes’ betting specialty are not the BRIT awards, but sports like football, horseracing or other team and individual sports. However, you will regularly find betting opportunities that do not include sports, as in this case.

The welcome bet offer at Ladbrokes is slightly bigger standing at £50. You just have to deposit a minimum of £5 or higher and stake that amount in the form of a bet. If you have fulfilled the conditions as seen on the terms and conditions page, you get a refund of up £50 in the form of a free bet. Use the free bet to make money on the house.
