Bigg Boss 11 is coming to an end. The much-awaited season is finale on January 14 and fate of four contestants are at stake. Hina Khan, Shilpa Shinde, Vikas Gupta and Puneesh Sharma are competing for the prize money and title and it is still difficult to predict as to who will take the coveted trophy. Who will win the trophy? Rumours are doing the rounds on the internet that the name of Bigg Boss 11 winner has been leaked. However, the rumours can’t be always true.
Bigg Boss 11 viewers are very eager to know who will win Bigg Boss 11! And just like the viewers, bookies too are geared up for the grand finale as, probably for the first time, they have found a TV show where they can finally put their bets on.
According to The Times of India, Delhi has bet several hundred of crores of rupees on the four finalists. The estimates of how much amount is exactly riding on the result of the show, however, vary. Some bookies claim that bets of around Rs200-250 crore have been made on the show in and around Delhi, while others say the figure is as high as Rs 1,000 crore if you take into account the nearby areas in NCR as well.
A bookie told ToI that it is “impossible” to estimate the exact figure because betting is not an organised sector. However, the amount of money at stake on the Bigg Boss finale may not be as high as in the case of, say,an IPL or an ODI cricket match. The bookie, however, told the daily that “substantially higher” amount is running on the show and even he has bets worth twice than the last year.
According to bookies, Shilpa is the clear favourite to win the show with over 30% of all bets from Delhi against her name, while Puneesh is the least favoured of the four finalists. Hina Khan is expected to get the second place. Most of the betting is done in the last week when the excitement is at its peak and prior to this, odds on various contestants keep on changing over weeks. As per the report, Shilpa Shinde has now odds of 1.25 to 1, Puneesh Sharma’s odds are 3 to 1, Hina Khan’s 1.5 to 1, and Vikas Gupta’s 2 to 1.
Just like bookies, astrologers and tarot card readers too are making predictions and foretelling the future. According to a report by Bollywood Life, tarot card readers feel that unlike the predictions that root for Shilpa, here the maximum chances of winning is for Hina Khan. “I just feel she will win it. She deserves it and is ready for more success, growth and happiness in her world,” says Monisha Singh, tarot card reader.
