'The Voice' 2013 finals: Betting odds favor Jacquie Lee to win it all

"The Voice" 2013 comes to a dramatic musical crescendo Dec. 16 on NBC as the three finalists still alive in the competition perform one last time for America's votes. Although all three talented hopefuls bring different sounds to the stage and all have been well-received by voters, final betting odds posted to Bovada Sportsbook on Dec. 15 predict that teen Jacquie Lee will take the coveted season five title.

Lee, 16, holds 1/1 odds of following season four winner Danielle Bradbery to the winner's circle. During her tenure as international super star Christina Aguilera's pupil, Lee has earned high praise for her soulful sound and beyond-her-years mature vocals. Although her performances have kept her from the dreaded bottom three, she earned her sole iTunes vote multiplier to date with her upbeat Dec. 9 version of the Sarah McLachlan hit "Angel."

Ranked second entering the finals with 7/5 odds of victory is Tessanne Chin of Team Adam Levine. Like Lee, Chin has been popular with voters and has successfully evaded the threat of elimination with her strong, diva-like vocals and emotional performances. Her most recent offering, a Dec. 9 take on Simon and Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water," left Levine nearly speechless before cruising to number one on the iTunes top 400 singles chart.

Finally, assuming the position of competition long-shot with 13/4 odds is musical overachiever Will Champlin. The second of Levine's two finalists, Champlin has received praise throughout season five for his attention to detail and excellent work ethic. He is the only contestant to date to have earned two download vote multipliers: one for his Dec. 9 rendition of "Carry On," and the other for his Nov. 25 take on Etta James' "At Last."

To see the finalists bring their best to the stage one more time, watch "The Voice" 2013 performance finals Dec. 16 on NBC.
