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.

HALEY I LIKE THAT COOLNESS ABOUT HER LIKE SHE CAN HANDLE ANYTHING,
THEY'LL ALL GET SOME KIND OF CAREER OUT OF THE SHOW BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL GOOD.......SCOTTY DEFINETLY HAS A COU..."
1* Over Jets/Panthers (4:05 ET): Last week in NFL, I went 2-0 w/ totals as BOTH Colts/Bengals & Cowboys/Bears EASILY went Over the number (by MORE THAN 40 points!).
Here's ANOTHER game that I expect to FLY OVER....
Did you know that non-conference games have been going Over w/ great regularity this season? Well, they have. The official tally is 44 of 58 have gone Over this year, including 3-1 last week.
The Jets exploded for 37 points in a win and cover over the Raiders last week. While not a non-conference game, it was the most points the team scored in any contest all season. The 209 yards passing were actually the most since Week 4. While this Jets offense hardly inspires a lot of confidence on the road, remember what I talked about last week w/ a record amount of scoring currently taking place league-wide. This year has seen an average of 46 points scored per game, which would be an all-time high. Last week's games saw more total points scored (859) than any other week in NFL history. The average Over cashed by nearly nine points per game w/ 11 of 16 games producing winning Over tickets.
In other words, this total is too low.
Carolina is also due for an Over. They own the league's longest Under streak at six straight games and are also the league's top Under team at 9-3-1 for the year. But take note that the Jets are 3-0 Over this season on the road when the total falls between 38.5 and 42 points. 1* Over Jets/Panthers.
