Question by User: What does it mean when someone says, ‘hotly-tipped’?
For an example, ‘He was a hotly-tipped guitarist from the band.’
I’ve never heard the expression before, so what does it mean?

Best answer:

Answer by Elizabeth
If someone is hotly tipped to do or win something, it means people in the know think he will do it/win it.

hotly – popularly.
tipped – like in horse racing when one horse is favoured over another to win and is tipped to win.

popularly favoured, example:
Bono and Bob Geldof were hotly tipped by bookmakers to scoop the Nobel Peace Prize.
