|American Idol contestant Mario Vazquez’s sudden drop-out from the competition enabled swift bettors to place heavy wagers on Sportsbook.com odds before the company managed to change them. |
Sportsbook.com was offering a proposition wager on whether Mario Vazquez would win American Idol. Bettors could wager either yes or no. Sportsbook.com had Vazquez as one of the favorites to win with 4-1 odds.
Unfortunately, unlucky bettors that wagered on Vasquez to win the American Idol competition have now lost their wagers.
Odds makers have now re-evaluated the contestants and released new odds.
Vazquez was replaced with Nikko Smith, who has come back into the competition at 25-1 – somewhere in the middle of the pack.
