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?
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.
