"The Voice" 2014 continues May 19 on NBC as the top three finalists sing again for America's votes. Betting odds posted to Bovada Sportsbook on May 17 predicted which of the talented aspiring vocalists will earn the season six title when the week's results are revealed on May 20.
Favored to win the crown with 2/3 odds is YouTube star Christina Grimmie, who represents Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine. Although she was nearly eliminated after failing to place in the top two following the May 12 performance show and advanced only on the strength of her massive 544,000-person Twitter following, Grimmie has enjoyed success during her time as a contestant. She's earned a pair of iTunes vote multipliers for her creative spins on Drake's "Hold On, We're Going Home" and Lil' Wayne's "How to Love," and looks to become Levine's second winner in as many seasons.
With 3/2 odds of victory, Josh Kaufman of Team Usher is second-most likely to take the crown. Kaufman, 38, has been perhaps the most consistent of the three finalists. He's enjoyed the most success on the iTunes charts, claiming an impressive three bonuses for his spins on "Stay with Me," "I Can't Make You Love Me," and most recently, "All of Me."
Finally, with 5/1 odds, long shot status belongs to aspiring country singer Jake Worthington of Team Blake Shelton. Like Kaufman, the 18-year old country music purist has never been in danger of elimination. He's notched just a single top 10 finish on the top 200 chart, the number three spot for his spin on Bryan Adams' "Heaven," but has fared consistently well on the country charts.
The three finalists will sing for America's votes and comments by mentors Shelton, Levine, Usher, and Shakira on May 19. "The Voice" 2014 will conclude May 20 with guest performances by Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, OneRepublic, and Tim McGraw, and of course, the crowning of the new champion.
