Handicapping the “Voice” Finale: The Prop Bets
Posted by Newson 05/07/2012 at 5:11 PM
As you all know, tonight is part one of the finale for the second season of The Voice, and for most of us red-blooded Americans, that means but one thing: Gambling opportunity. Unsurprisingly, you can find odds up for the four remaining Voice contestants on Bovada Sportsbook, with Juliet Simms getting by far the highest odds at 1:2, followed by Tony Lucca at 5:2, Jermaine Paul at 15:2 and Chris Mann at 10:1. Looks about right, though frankly, you couldn’t put the odds on Juliet low enough for us to want to bet on anyone else.
Anyway, we’ve got more interesting things to bet on—and so will you, if you use our handy Prop Bets column. (Sadly, “Lindsey Pavao and Jamar Rogers crashing the stage and staging a second-season coup” is still off the board.) Read, study diligently, and (hopefully) watch the money pile up:
