American Idol: Odds split among Crystal and Lee

American Idol: Odds split among Crystal and Lee Season 9 of American Idol is getting closer to its climax and despite the lower ratings of the once extremely popular reality show, odds on the winner are still attracting plenty of bettors. This week we are down to just four American Idol contestants - Casey James, Crystal Bowersox, Lee Dewyze and Michael Lynche, so let's take a look at the latest betting odds on AI9, as posted by the popular online bookmaker Bodog Sports.

 One thing is certain in the Final Four of the American Idol 9, it's going to be a two-horse race. At Bodog Sports the current American Idol odds are split on who the winner will be this year, as both Crystal and Lee are sharing EVEN odds to win, i.e. if bettors wager $100 they will make only $100 profit. What's even more amazing - this is the first time in nine seasons of the American Idol where we have two contestants with even odds to win this late into the competition. The sportsbooks have usually favored two contestants in the final four, but one of them has always edged the other in the odds. There is some silver lining in this year's American Idol odds, however. By this time in the previous years' odds, the favorite American Idol contestant is always paying on very small odds way below the even money mark, so at least the late AI bettor can take advantage of the decent payout.

 Florida native Michael Lynche is currently the underdog of the 9th Season of American Idol with odds 15/1 to win the competition, while Casey James is sitting on odds 10/1 to be the next American Idol winner. This could be translated in another way - according to the odds makers, Michael is the most likely contestant to be voted off American Idol next. Keep an eye on our website as we will continue to bring you the latest odds on the American Idol as the show progresses in its final stages.
