American Idol Odds: Durbin Eliminated
(The Spread) – In the shocking results show on Thursday night, James Durbin was sent how on American Idol and now, all that’s left are three.
When the final four was announced last week, Durbin was a 3/2 favorite over Scotty McCreery (8/5), Haley Reinhart (7/2) and Lauren Alania (4/1). But Durbin shockingly found himself in the bottom 2 just two weeks later and now, he’s heading home after being eliminated.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Bodog.com have made Scotty McCreery a 4/7 favorite to win American Idol Season 10. Lauren Alaina is 7/2 to win, while Haley Reinhart is 3/1.
It’s interesting to note that when one-time favorite Pia Toscano was surprisingly eliminated on April 7, that only Lauren and Haley remained for the females. Five weeks later and now Scotty is the only male left standing.
Of the three left, Scotty has never tasted the bottom three once, while Alaina is fresh off being placed in the bottom 2 this week. Reinhart has somehow stayed through unscathed, even though she’s been in the bottom 3 four times since March 10.
So this is it: It’s down to the two country singers and…well, we might not know what the other one is. It would be easy to say that the favorite (Scotty McCreery) is a shoe-in to win this season’s American Idol, but they same could have been said for James Durbin before he was eliminated. Maybe it’s time to take a look at one of the females to take home American Idol 10!
