Punters make Indira the favourite to win NZ Idol

CENTREBET MEDIA RELEASE (OCTOBER 27, 2006)

Punters make Indira the favourite to win NZ Idol

Centrebet punters are betting that Indira Moala will be crowned the new NZ Idol on Sunday night.

The Auckland singer's odds with Centrebet have gone from $2.10 to $1.80 over the past fortnight.

Levin's Matt ($1.90 from $1.66) is not Centrebet's favourite for the first time since September 18.

"Bets are running two to one in favour of Indira," says Centrebet's Gerard Daffy. "Matt looks like doing what's known as a Michael Murphy - losing the final after breezing through the heats."

Centrebet is quoting short odds on Indira and Matt now but both finalists were rank outsiders when the online betting agency opened its exclusive series winner market three months ago.

Indira was $51.00 and Matt was $67.00 when Centrebet started accepting bets on August 1.

NZ Idol winner $1.80 Indira Moala $1.90 Matt Saunoa

Tri-Nations match $1.30 New Zealand $3.50 Great Britain

Tri-Nations winner $1.18 Australia $5.50 New Zealand $12.00 Great Britain

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
