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* Seattle (10:05 ET): Felix Hernandez was once again at his best last time out, tossing seven scoreless innings in a 4-0 win over the previously red-hot A's. Now, he gets a second crack at facing an Angels team he's already shut down once earlier in the season. With King Felix available in this price range, I have no choice but to back the Mariners in this spot.
Hernandez has actually been more effective on the road w/ a 1.74 ERA in nine starts. His WHIP is 0.952 as he's 6-2. For the year, he is 8-4 in 15 starts with a 2.32 ERA and 1.032 WHIP. In 9 of his last 12 starts, he's allowed 1 ER or less. As I mentioned earlier, he had no problems with this anemic Angels lineup earlier in the season, holding them to two runs, only one earned, on five hits. He went eight innings.
Last night saw the Angels prevail 1-0, giving them a leg up through the first three games of the series. But over the last two games, they've scored only three times. That kind of production won't cut it going up against Hernandez. Don't even get me started on how awful Josh Hamilton (.210) has been this year. Hernandez should have no problem shutting the Angels down in this series finale. 1* Seattle.
