Adam Lambert Still a -250 Favorite to Win American Idol Finale

It's Adam Lambert and Kris Allen in the American Idol Finale this coming Tuesday and Wednesday nights. 

Remarkably, Lambert's odds haven't moved much from -250, where they peaked a few weeks ago.  One would have to bet $2.50 to win $1.00 (you would receive the $2.50 back plus the $1.00 only if Lambert wins).  Kris Allen would pay out almost $2 for every $1 bet.

Danny Gokey, the original favorite, was voted off Wednesday night.  He has never appeared in the bottom three.

Gokey had continually impressed the judges with his husky voice - but not his hip shaking - throughout the contest. "Idol" judge Simon Cowell called his cover of Joe Cocker's version of "You Are So Beautiful" on Tuesday a "vocal master class" but said his dancing during Terence Trent D'Arby's "Dance Little Sister" was "desperate."

Either Lambert, a 27-year-old theater actor from San Diego, or Allen, a 23-year-old college student from Conway, Ark., will be crowned "Idol" next Wednesday. Cowell said Allen's totally stripped-down version of Kanye West's "Heartless" on Tuesday made him a contender for the finale.
