Submitted by admin on 1 August, 2006 - 2:39pm

Online betting agency Centrebet says that Matt Saunoa is odds on to become the third NZ Idol.

Matt is Centrebet's $1.66 favourite to join Ben Lummis and Rosita Vai on the NZ Idol honour roll.

"Matt's mate Lavina Williams was eliminated from Australian Idol in eighth place last night but he's got a favourite's chance of finishing first in New Zealand," says Centrebet's Gerard Daffy.

Centrebet is tipping Aroha Robinson to be the contestant who does not make the NZ Idol final.

Aroha is Centrebet's $1.50 favourite to be voted off NZ Idol next week after two recent escapes.

The person who wins this

The person who wins this year better passionately pursue their career!i mean goodness we don't want another Ben and Rosita!...if the winner this time round isn't that motivated to actually try and kick-start their career as a singer..i will be deeply dissapointed..i mean what would be the point of this show?..the Idol reputation needs rescueing, so i'm hoping the person who wins will change this

Goodness - that's a bit

Goodness - that's a bit unfair! :| What do you think Ben's been doing for the last two years?!! It's not like he's been sitting on his backside, not doing what he enjoys doing and not working on creating more music for us to enjoy! I guarantee if you ask anyone who is close to him they'll say he's definitely been "passionately pursuing his career!" :p

If you look at Centrebet's

If you look at Centrebet's initial odds, based on who is left, Ben would be the favourite followed by Kali!

I dont know how Matt and Aroha will go with the genre weeks, but its so good to see a whole bunch of actually quality voices in this top group

Yup true. But of their Top 4 from when they chose the Top 24 contestants last year, Nik and Rosita were both in there.
