Lee DeWyze -- The Odds Are in His Favor

5/20/2010 3:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The smart money is on Lee DeWyze to win "American Idol" -- in fact, dude has become the odds on favorite to win the show ... this according to one of the biggest gambling sites in the world.


The gambling experts at BoDog.com have decided that Lee's odds to win the show are 1/2 -- while Crystal Bowersox is at 3/2. 

Translation -- a $2 bet would pay back $3 on Lee (the favorite) and $5 on Crystal (the underdog).

But the odds don't always predict the winner -- last year, Adam Lambert was the odds on favorite to win ... and we all know how that worked out.

To everyone talkin about Crystal's teeth, hair, or looks in general, YOU are what's wrong with the music industry today. It is about MUSIC and SINGING. I think they need to have a contest where you don't see the contestants, just the winner at the end.

Lee fits the role better for Idol.



As runner-up, Crystal can go on to have a good career with her own unique style.



I think she'd be happier that way anyway.



The Idol contract requires that the singer/musician follow the recording label's direction and promotion. They're all about packaging. I think it's pretty obvious that Lee would be more comfortable going along with that stuff than Crystal would.

I hope Lee wins, he is far better then Crystal.
Everytime the judges can her some bad feedback she always had an excuse and she has an attitude problem.
She need to brush her teeth and do something with her hair.

what a beautiful day     

I believe LEE will WIN. He has a better voice. He kind of sounds like CREED.



Crystal will do well after IDOL.



Lee has my vote!

go home!    

Juliane- are you nuts? Tell that to Katherine McPhee, Justin Guarini, Diana DeGarmo, et al. Just accept Lee's most likely win gracefully instead of spewing that crap about second place does better. Where's Clay Aiken now???? LOL!

That chick and her "yuck mouth" need to head to the nearest dentist & get that grill done. And then straight to the pet shop and get that crop cut off. Sorry folks but this chick looks like she stinks & needs a serious bath. She looks like that guy on Pirates of the Caribbean - the one with the snakes for a beard!

Your "journalist" clearly has no idea how to calculate odds. A $2 bet getting 1/2 odds would net you $1 and a $2 bet getting 3/2 odds would net you $3. Smart writer.
