After 14 years of abandoning us all to an audio wilderness Gary Barlow has finally released his 3rd album after over a decade wait, and Paddy Power reckon it's going to be a corker, offering odds of 1/1 it will be a UK number 1.
The bookmaker are also offering match bets on who will sell the most albums, as Robbie Williams releases his new offering 'Swing Both Ways' featuring duets with Kelly Clarkson and Olly Murs. Robbie currently has the edge with odds of 4/7 his album will be winning the sales game against Gary's 5/4, and he is also the favourite to enjoy the most chart success at 4/5.
But it's not all doom and gloom for Mr Barlow as its odds of 7/4 he will put his X Factor success to good use and perform with Take That on one of the Live Shows, and its 5/1 he and Robbie will put their chart bloodbath behind them and perform a duet.
A spokesperson for Paddy Power said, 'Robbie has always been Take That's bad boy making him chart gold. The odds are saying Mr nice guy, Gary Barlow might not be able to compete'.
