Matt odds on to win NZ Idol...Aroha odds on to go

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.
