PUNTERS MAKE CHET FAKER FAVOURITE FOR TRIPLE J HOTTEST 100 NUMBER 1 SONG WITH ‘TALK IS CHEAP’

Mere minutes after online bookie Sportingbet.com.au released its market on Tuesday for the Triple J Hottest 100 number 1 song of 2014, punters began to single out one particular tune to take out top honours.

Talk Is Cheap was put up as an $8 fourth favourite by Sportingbet, but after a string of significant bets, the sensuous track from Melbourne songwriter Chet Faker is now the $2.60 favourite.

“We have 70 songs in our market but more than 60% of the money we’re holding is for Talk Is Cheap to top the countdown,” Sportingbet’s Andrew Brown said.

“Several of our punters have backed the song multiple times; they are that confident.”

Peking Duk’s High is the only other tune attracting support and has also shortened from $6 to $3 since Sportingbet opened its market.

Opening favourite Chandelier by Sia has drifted from $4 to $10 and Milky Chance’s Stolen Dance has eased from $5 to $11.

Earlier this year, Vance Joy’s Riptide was a $4 second favourite at Sportingbet when it upset heavy odds-on pop Royals by Lorde to win Triple J’s 2013 song of the year.

Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know was the shortest priced favourite in Triple J Hottest 100 history when it won at odds of $1.11 with Sportingbet in 2012.
