(The Spread) – American Idol Season 11 is down to its final four and Philip Phillips remains the favorite heading into the final three weeks.
According to oddsmakers Phillips is a 7/5 favorite while Jessica Sanchez and Joshua Ledet have the next best odds at 2/1, respectively. Hollie Cavanagh remains the massive long shot of the four remaining contestants, as she’s 18/1 to win this season of American Idol.
Last week, Phillips was a 4/5 favorite to win this season, while Sanchez had odds of 5/2. Ledet was 5/1 while Cavanagh was 40/1, although she escaped elimination last week despite being in the bottom two. Skylar Laine, who was 7/1 last week, was eliminated on May 3.
Of the final four, Cavanagh has been in most danger of being eliminated. She has been included in the bottom three five times since the start of the show, including three weeks in a row now. Ledet has been in the bottom three twice, while Sanchez and Phillips have never been in the bottom three. (Sanchez was saved on April 12, however.)
There are just three weeks remaining in American Idol Season 11, as the season finale will take place on May 24.
