Crufts 2020 is now in full swing with over 20,000 different dogs descending on Birmingham to compete in various categories including the biggest prize of them all, Best in Show. ‘The Greatest Dog Show in The World’ features unique dog events and competitions but the most famous and revered category is, without a doubt, Best in Show, which is announced on the final day. In 2019 , this honour was won by a papillon named Dylan, who despite being small, fluffy and adorable also has the nickname ‘Dylan the villain’ – what’s not to love?
Dylan, a Toy dog who also won first prize in his individual category, beat six other finalists to take home the title along with his proud owner Kathleen Roosens.

But which dog breed is the favourite to take home the trophy this year?

What are the Crufts 2020 Best in Show winner odds?

The current odds on which breed of dog will win Best in Show this year according to Betway are as follows:
  • Terrier – 13/8
  • Hound- 7/4
  • Gun – 5/2
  • Utility – 5/1
  • Toy – 10/1
  • Pastoral – 12/1
  • Working – 16/1
After Dylan’s big win last year, it looks like the small Toy dog breed is less favoured to take home the prize this year, with Terriers instead being the favourite to win Best in Show in 2020.

INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOUR PET: One survey found that 81 percent of cat owners let their felines sleep on the bed, compared to 73 percent of dog owners.

Betway’s Chad Yeomans commented: ‘The Terrier is bounding towards Crufts Best in Show at 13/8 to be crowned as this year’s top dog, as Jack Russells and Bull Terriers jump through hoops to showcase their canine credentials.’ ‘Tailing closely behind at 7/4 is the Hound, with the Gun aiming for the title at 5/2. The Working dog is a far-fetched bet, chasing the pack at 16/1.’
