Julia & Sasha move into outright favouritism to win The Block. Golden oldies Carleen & Dan are the biggest drifters in the betting.
Teachers Andy & Ben still have a lot to learn.
After the first room reveals of the new season of The Block, it’s ladies Julia & Sasha who are setting the pace as the ones to beat.
Having topped the judges scoreboard, the couple are now into $3.25 favourites with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au to win the show – in from $3.50.
Hapless baby boomers Carleen & Dan have ballooned out following their disastrous en-suite from $3.50 out to $5.00.
Will & Karlie have made steady progress and their odds are into $3.75 from $4.00, while Kim & Chris remain unchanged at $4.00.
Teacher mates Andy & Ben have seen their odds improve from $8.00 into $6.00 despite receiving bad reviews from the judges.
“The odds on Julia & Sasha’s builder lasting the whole series aren’t great that’s for sure but the girls still measured up to win week one and are definitely the ones to beat,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
