"The Voice" 2013 resumes Dec. 9 on NBC with season five's penultimate performance episode. Entering the week's action, betting odds posted to Bovada Sportsbook on Dec. 8 favor teen Jacquie Lee, but any of the five remaining hopefuls could still snag the title.
Lee, who sings under the tutelage of international super star Christina Aguilera, holds field-best 1/1 odds of winning the show. The teen's preternaturally mature sound has secured her enough of the public vote to keep her safe from the newly implemented Twitter instant save, though some of her performances, like her playoff round offering of "I Put a Spell on You," have been markedly better than others, like her pitchy top 10 take on Zedd's "Clarity."
Ranked second with 11/4 odds is country music star Blake Shelton's sole remaining contestant, Cole Vosbury. As one of the season's most consistent performers, Vosbury has come close to snagging iTunes vote multipliers more than once, but hasn't yet scored a top 10 ranking.
The last three hopefuls, who all sing as part of Team Adam Levine, fill in the rest of the betting picture. Ranked third with 5/1 odds is the hard-working Will Champlin, who mostly recently covered Avicii's "Hey Brother." Champlin is followed by Tessanne Chin, who last channeled Katy Perry with her Dec. 2 take on "Unconditionally" that she dedicated to her parents. Chin holds 11/2 odds of victory.
Bringing up the rear with 9/1 odds is indie rocker James Wolpert, who received the Twitter instant save during the Dec. 3 results show after turning in two performances that failed to live up to his usual high snuff.
"The Voice" 2013 resumes Dec. 9 as the top five hit the stage to perform once again for America's votes.
