The odds are on American Idol Lee Dewyze

Although Crystal Bowersox has been a huge favorite to win American Idol, with gambling sites listing her as the frontrunner all season long, the odds have switched in the last week. One of the biggest gambling sites in the world, bodog.com, has decided that Lee DeWyze’s odds to win the show are 1/2 — while Crystal Bowersox is at 3/2. Richard Gardner of Bodog says: “For the last few weeks Lee DeWyze has been slowly emerging as the favorite to win American Idol, and after this past week‘s performances it has been made clear that Lee is now odds on favorite going into the final 2 at -200.  Crystal has been in the bottom 2 recently and seems that her following is not as strong as once was earlier in the season and she now sits at +150 to grab the title despite her tremendous talent. However, after Kris Allen pulled the huge upset last year who knows how America will vote next week.” The season finale airs live Tuesday night, with the results being announced live on the final show Wednesday night.

    I love Lee, his voice is so full of emotion and he seems so humble. Plus, he’s come a long way from the beginning. I love Crystal too, she’s amazing and has always been amazing. Actually, I loved most of this year’s contestants, especially Siobhan and Tim.

    I love Lee Dewyze, I just think he has gained a lot of confidence through this whole experience. I think Lee Dewyze is going to win! Crystal good too, but she’s always been that way. We got to see Lee change into this incredible artist on the show. He was so shy at the beginning and so nervous but now he’s like a hungry tiger waiting to devour his competition! Good Luck Lee!!!!!!!!!!!

    Lee is the best! I loved him since the beginning! We all got to see the growth and determination he has on the show. His story from the begiining to end is what won us over. Not to mention a spectacular singer. I love him and wishes him the best cause I know he will have a big career ahead of him!!

    My support goes to Lee. I think that he is amazing!! His voice is so rich and soulful. The fact that early on Crystal wanted to quit kind of turned me off of her. Added to the fact that she keeps mentioning her diabetes. Why mention this? It is a competition based on talent not on what people have to deal with. She is a very talented girl so I am stumped as why she did this. I remember when David Cook was also going through problems he did not mention them. The competition should be based on talent not on what is going on in their lives.
