Entertainment prop bets for Idol are often tough to come by. With that in mind, we advise making haste in placing your bets before odds are removed from the boards. Under normal betting circumstances, we’d expect props to stick around until Sunday’s episode, but odds for American Idol come and go without notice.
Even if the above prop remains on the boards at BetUS until the end of the season, the odds will change as singers are eliminated. Payouts will have to wait until after the final episode of season 21 on the 21st.
Iam Tongi is the front-runner with a +200 moneyline. The large-bodied Hawaiian doesn’t fit the standard image of a stage performer but his soulful renditions of R&B classics have placed him as the most likely singer to win.
Tongi’s audition has more YouTube views than any other in American Idol history. Iam’s social media presence has also blown up over the course of the season, with his Instagram and TikTok accouts adding hundreds of thousands of followers.
Wé Ani is trailing Tongi in the American Idol odds by only 50 points, suggesting it would not be much of an upset if she won season 21. Her near-perfect cover of Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing” on last Sunday’s episode propelled her to the next round.
An upcoming episode will be without the services of judges Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. They’ll have to miss some time as they are traveling to the UK to perform at King Charles’ coronation on May 6th.
While Perry and Richie are out, singers Alanis Morissette and Ed Sheeran will fill in as guest judges. Morissette and Sheeran will carry considerable weight on the panel of judges and could cause for the early exit of a favored performer.
This Sunday, three of the above potential American Idol winners will be eliminated. Even if betting lines disappear, all entertainment bets will be honored and paid out upon conclusion.
