American Idol down to the final four
American Idol’s panel of judges, as well as the legions of fans voting from home, hold your wagers in their hands. The four finalist perform Wednesday night and then the axe will fall on one pop hopeful Thursday.
Scotty McCreery -110
McCreery’s booming voice is a surprise when starring down his nerdy stature. He’s already grabbed the attention of plenty of country recorded labels and will be cracking the country charts soon – regardless if he wins American Idol or not.
James Durbin +180
Durbin is the male rocker among the finalist and hopes to follow in the footsteps of Idol alum Chris Daughtry and not the long list of winners who have faded into obscurity.
Lauren Alaina +650
It looks like the guys are running a two-horse race for the American Idol crown, but don’t count out the ladies. There is plenty of value in Alaina, who is hoping to parlay her Idol success into a country career a la Carrie Underwood and Kellie Pickler. Maybe she'll end up dating an NHL player too!
Haley Reinhart +650
Reinhart is the dark horse of the bunch and plenty of critics don’t see a career for her once she gets the boot, well, unless she pulls off the upset and wins. But even her home town is prepping for her return. If anything, Reinhart has the edge over her competitors in the looks department. And in today’s music industry that can go a long way.

1* Pittsburgh (10:10 ET): It's tough to go against the Padres here, after they took a bad loss at home last night, and especially w/ James Shields pitching. But the fact is this team simply isn't very good right now while the Pirates are red hot, winners of seven in a row and outscoring opponents by a 46-14 margin. They are the play here.
Shields may be unbeaten in his 10 starts (6-0) w/ the team having won the last five times he's taken the mound, but he's hardly been dominant here in 2015. In fact, his ERA of 3.75 and WHIP of 1.203 are downright pedestrian numbers. A major concern for him has been giving up the long ball as he leads the team w/ 15 HR allowed in 62 1/3 IP. Pirates' starter Francisco Liriano, despite an unfortunate 2-7 TSR, has very similar numbers to Shields, which shows just how cruel this game can often be. Liriano is off a spectacular outing where he struck out 12 and allowed just 1 ER in a 9-1 win over the Mets. He has a 1.91 ERA in four road starts.
The Pirates homered three times yday en route to the rout (Note: I won w/ the Over). None of those were from Andrew McCutchen, but that's okay; he had three hits anyway & continues to be red-hot at the plate w/ a .314 batting average in May. The Pirates are simply a much better team than the Padres right now & we can get them at a great price here because of Shields' influence on the line. 1* Pittsburgh
