|Internet sportsbook, PinnacleSports.com announces updated odds on which performer will win the fourth series of American Idol. |
PinnacleSports.com has seen 42% of all the money wagered on American Idol so far placed on Carrie Underwood being crowned the next pop superstar. After opening as the favourite to win the competition at 2/1 odds, bettors continue to back the Checotah, OK native dropping her odds to 11/10.
Although Underwood remains the favourite, bettors at PinnacleSports.com have jumped on the Vonzell Solomon bandwagon in the past three weeks – backing her with 38% of all money bet to date, while dropping her odds from 10/1 at opening to her current price of 4/1. Bo Bice was awarded co-favourite status after Mario Vasquez dropped out and has received balanced action throughout the competition and currently stands at 9/5 odds to win. There has been very little support amongst bettors for Anthony Fedorov to date, which is why he finds himself as a 40/1 long shot.
“Betting at our company has proven to be an extremely accurate forecast of current affairs – after recently correctly predicting who’d be named the new Pope as well as the winner of last year’s Presidential election including the winner of every single swing state in the Nation,” said Simon Noble of PinnacleSports.com. “Our customers initially backed Carrie Underwood more than any other performer, but recently her support has waned slightly as bettors have placed their money on Vonzell becoming the next American Idol. Despite his past troubles with the law, bettors continue to value Bo Bice’s talent over any potential controversy.”
PinnacleSports.com will be offering betting options on American Idol throughout the remainder of the series until the show’s finale on May 25th.
