Topping charts during holidays is prestigious for most artists, especially when it comes to Christmas. Bet on Christmas number 1 single in the UK to be one of the British singers and you will definitely win some money you can spend on presents.
According to the newest online sportsbook news in the UK, British singers have the most chances to reach #1 on Christmas Day. However, several Americans also aim for the top, so the battle for the #1 will be really tough this year.
Odds on artists to top Christmas UK charts
- Ed Sheeran – 3.00
- Ariana Grande – 6.00
- Adele – 7.00
- Mariah Carey – 11.00
- Sam Smith – 13.00
Bet on Christmas number 1 single in the UK to be Ed Sheeran or Adele
British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran leads the best odds on reaching his ninth number 1 on Christmas Day. He has 3.00 odds at 1xBet Sportsbook, which is the best result according to analysts. Sheeran released his last LP No.6 Collaborations Project this July, so one of its singles can easily top the UK charts.
Sheeran’s colleague Adele follows him by his feet for topping her home country charts at Christmas. Unlike Ed, Adele hasn’t released new music yet but if she does, it will definitely top worldwide charts. Considering that the last Adele’s album was released in 2015, this Christmas is the right time for the comeback.
Ariana Grande can earn her sixth number 1 on Christmas
This year’s main chart-topper, Ariana Grande, is likely to celebrate Christmas at the top of the UK chart. She has 6.00 odds to do this. The American artist can finish at #1 either with a single from her last album Thank U, Next or new material. This singer releases new music almost every year, so this Christmas is an ideal time to dominate in charts. Also, Grande has once recorded a Christmas song Santa Tell Me, which can repeat Mariah Carey’s success as an annual holiday hymn.
Christmas song by Mariah Carey is very likely to return to the UK charts
Mariah Carey can be back to the UK charts with her 1994 song All I Want For Christmas Is You. The legendary Christmas hymn returns to charts annually in December, so 2019 won’t be an exception. According to online sportsbooks in the UK, the “Christmas Queen” will finish at #1 with the possibility of 11.00.
Despite huge popularity, the song had never reached number 1 in the UK. Its peak was #2 three times – in 1994, 2017 and 2018. However, the cult of the song increases every year, so Carey has probably the best possibility to get her #1 this Christmas.
