What a weird song. That was the consensus among judges and fans after David Archuleta performed the song “You’re the Voice, a song that nobody admits to have ever heard before. However, this article is about gambling odds and we don’t really care what songs Archuleta sings but how it might affect his odds of winning the contest. Oddsmakers at online wagering giant Bodoglife.com still show Archuleta as the man to beat with 11/10 odds. This bet would pay you $11 on a $10 bet. If you have been following the odds since the beginning of finals competition you can see how Archuleta is slipping.
Once considered his to lose, Archuleta still could very well win the seventh season of American Idol but he must be looking over his shoulder because rocker David Cook is right behind him and closing with 5/2 odds. It was Cook who had the word “Amazing” attached to the judges critique of his “Billie Jean” performance.
