Predicting a Win on 'Idol'

Two of the most reliable predicters of 'American Idol' winners are pointing in different directions.

Screensavers.com, which has been flooded with 'Idol' downloads, says Chris Daughtry's downloads have out-numbered the other top contestants 2 to 1.

Screensavers' stats have a long track record of accurately predicting the 'Idol' race, which will be whittled down to three on Wednesday night. According to their numbers, it looks like it's the end of the road for Elliot Yamin.

But Zabasearch.com, once linked on 'Idol''s website, puts Taylor Hicks in the top spot, with Daughtry falling to the last spot with a possible ticket home.

Zabasearch gathers its data by tracking speed-dialed votes on Dialidol.com.
