Nik is the New NZ Idol Odds-on Betting Favourite

Nik is the New NZ Idol Odds-on Betting Favourite

SYDNEY, Sept. 20 /MediaNet International-AsiaNet/ --

Centrebet says that Nik Carlson is odds on to win NZ Idol after Rongo Brightwell's elimination.

Nik's odds-on betting price means that Centrebet thinks he is more likely than not to triumph.

The Masterton man was Centrebet's hot favourite when the judges unveiled the Top 24 but he gave up his position at the top of the bookmaker's market following a few poor performances.

"Punters are born-again Nik fans," says Centrebet's Gerard Daffy. "He's restored their faith."

NZ Idol winner 1.90 Nik Carlson 3.50 Teresa Bergman 5.00 Rosita Vai 8.00 Jesse O'Brien 21.00 Steve Broad

Sex of the NZ Idol winner 1.50 Male 2.40 Female
