"American Idol" 2014 continues March 12 on FOX with the top 11 performance show. According to betting odds posted to Bovada Sportsbook shortly before the live broadcast, Floridian Sam Woolf is still favored to win season 13, while an all-girl bottom three is projected for a third straight week.
Woolf, who most recently performed Blind Pilot's "Just One" to mediocre reviews from judges Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick, Jr., and Keith Urban, holds 3/1 odds of victory entering the March 12 show. Ranked second with 7/2 odds is pop rocker Alex Preston, while the first of the ladies, preschool teacher Majesty Rose, sits in third place with 4/1 odds.
Aspiring country singer Dexter Roberts, whose take on "Lucky Man" prompted a 5,475% Amazon sales increase for original artist Montgomery Gentry's recording, is ranked fourth with 6/1 odds of winning the season. Impassioned rocker Caleb Johnson sits in fifth place with 7/1 odds, while Jessica Meuse is sixth with a 10/1 shot at emerging victorious.
A pair of artists including country performer Ben Briley and soul singer C.J. Harris share seventh place with 12/1 odds, while teen Malaya Watson, who impressed the judges with her passionate March 5 iteration of "Take Me to the King," is ranked ninth with 20/1 odds.
The final two contestants, Jena Irene Asciutto and M.K. Nobillette, are the season's least likely winners to date. While Asciutto holds 25/1 odds, San Francisco's Nobillette is the long shot with an unenviable 50/1 chance of taking the win. Her position at the bottom of the heap is unsurprising, since she narrowly escaped singing for her life on March 6.
The "American Idol" 2014 top 11 performance show begins at 8 p.m. Eastern time on March 12.
