|Beginning with thousands of hopefuls from coast-to-coast, Canadian Idol has been narrowed down to just eight remaining finalists competing for a major recording contract and the adoration of millions of fans. |
With millions of viewers making Canadian Idol the country's most-watched (English-speaking) Canadian series ever, the show's loyal fans remain captivated by the search for Canada's next Kalan Porter.
PinnacleSports.com has created individual odds on each of the remaining finalists winning a major recording contract.
Newfoundland's Rex Goudie continued to impress the judges this past week and has been tabbed as the favourite to become Canada's next pop idol at 7/4 odds (i.e., win $7 for every $4 bet). After this week's rousing rendition of Stevie Wonder's 'Higher Ground' received high praise from the judges, rocker Suzi Rawn solidified herself as a serious contender and is listed with the second best odds to win Canadian Idol at 7/2 odds.
'The last edition of American Idol was easily the most popular entertainment event with our bettors and after receiving numerous inquiries from our Canadian customers, we expect wagering on Canadian Idol to be a hit with our players,' said Simon Noble of PinnacleSports.com.
