Triple J’s Hottest 100 is heating up as Flume faces some unexpected competition for the No. 1 spot on the iconic Australia Day countdown.
Online bookmaker Sportsbet had previously priced Flume and his smash hit ‘Never Be Like You’ as the big $1.40 favourite, but it appears as if the race to the top spot isn’t going to be as straightforward as first thought.
‘Never Be Like You’ has drifted out to $1.80, with Amy Shark’s ‘Adore’ jumping from $9.00 into the outright second favourite at $3.50. Tash Sultana’s ‘Jungle’ has also firmed from $16 to $6.00.
There’s also been some massive movement in the market for Temper Trap and their song ‘Thick As Thieves’, moving from odds of $201 down to $8.00.
“The early money suggested the rest would never be like Flume but there’s a shark circling and our punters certainly adore the track and we could be in for an upset,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
