If you haven’t yet watched last night’s episode of Survivor, LOOK NO FURTHER. This post contains spoilers and I don’t want to be responsible for ruining a great hour of television. That being said, it is almost finale time, and it is always fun speculating on who is going to win. When it comes to speculation, there’s nothing better than a good Sportsbook. Why? Because the people taking bets have to be able to cover those bets, so they take these things very seriously. Look for B-sides recap later today, but until then, feel free to take a look at the odds for the remaining contestants after the jump. And just in case you missed it, SPOILERS AHEAD.
Thanks to the folks at Bodog.net for giving us something to talk about.If you saw last night’s episode or don’t care about spoilers, Parvati was eliminated. Not very strange, but I think it was really stupid to leave Adam there since he is the biggest threat to win an immunity challenge and if he were to go up against Yul or Ozzie, I think there would be enough of his old friends and backstabbed players to give him the win.
What do the odds makers say? Right now, Sundra has the lowest shot at winning, with the odds 7-1. I think this is about right. I don’t think any of her tribe would vote her out before Adam, but once it gets to the final four, she hasn’t done enough scheming to keep herself in the game. The next person on the list is Adam, at 6-1, which reflects his ability to win immunity and stay in the game. Beck comes in at 4-1 because Ozzy and Yul won’t get rid of her before Adam and Sundra.
That leaves us with Ozzy and Yul, who have odds at 1-1 and 5-9, which means they basically have an equal chance. Yul’s chances are slightly better, I believe, because he was seen as the leader of his tribe, and Ozzy was seen as an asshole to a lot of people. Yul is a lot like Terry, but Yul actually has the ability to scheme. Although Terry had Aras competing with him last year, Ozzy is much more the equal to Yul, and I think this season is still up in the air.
