BetCRIS.com makes Archuleta the 2 to 1 underdog (a winning $1 bet returns $3) in Tuesday’s showdown. Odds that David Cook will win are 1 to 3 (a $3 bet pays $4).
Bodoglife.com gives Archuleta — who was once the gambling site’s pick to take “Idol” top honors — a slightly better chance of winning. But he is still the underdog at 3 to 2. David Cook is around 2 to 5.
Cook had taken an early 67%-33% lead over Archuleta in our extremely scientific Bumpshack poll. Archuleta fans have rallied to close the gap to 58%-42%.
