Thirteen American Idol Odds Finalists at Sports Gambling

American Idol odds for Season 8 show a total of 13 finalists instead of the normal. 12.

American Idol odds followers have come to a conclusion. Gamblers that bet on American Idol have already decided that most of the final 13 are not worthy of a wager.  Four of the singers have American Idol odds of less than 10-1.

American Idol odds show that Adam Lambert is the favorite in Season 8 American Idol odds.  He is listed at about 2-1.  He is followed closely by Danny Gokey at about 3-1.  Lil Rounds is 4-1 in American Idol odds while Allison Iraheta is 7.5-1.  Since the two men are favored, the choice to bet on American Idol on whether a male or female will win has the male at -170 while the female is +130.  In the previous seven seasons of American Idol the women hold a small 4-3 edge over the men.  Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Fantasia Barrino and Jordin Sparks are the four previous female winners while Ruben Studdard, Taylor Hicks and David Cook are the previous male winners.

There are some live longshots in Season 8 American Idol odds.  Scott MacIntyre is listed at 10-1 in American Idol odds.  Matt Giraud and Alexis Grace are also interesting longshots at 12-1.  The remaining six contestants probably don’t have much of a chance according to the American Idol odds board.  Anoop Desai and Megan Corkrey are 10-1 in American Idol odds.  Jorge Nunez is listed at 25-1 for Season 8 of American Idol.  Kris Allen and Jasmine Murray are 30-1 while Michael Sarver is 50-1.

The big longshot Wild Card pick that could be interesting to gamblers that bet on American Idol is Jasmine Murray.  She didn’t make it originally but she could turn things around in the finals as she has an excellent voice and at 30-1 she offers a lot of entertainment betting value.

The choices to bet American Idol odds are always exciting, especially when the final 12, in this case 13, contestants are determined.  People like to bet on American Idol because they can watch their favorites in action each week.  That is always appealing and the choices available in American Idol odds have never been better.
