Gambling911.com widely anticipates the start of the new American Idol betting season to begin this week as the final 24 are determined.

Emphasis is on the word "anticipates" as more and more online gambling sites have waited a few weeks to begin posting odds on individual contestants.

"We generally see them waiting until the field narrows down to 12," says Payton O'Brien, Senior Editor of the Gambling911.com website.

That will happen in a few weeks.

One of the primary denominators to determine potential betting activity will be based on the ratings as the American Idol franchise has become unstable with departures of two popular judges (Paula Abdul during the summer and Simon Cowell after this season). 

But Ellen DeGeneres's debut on the show resulted in a positive jolt for its ratings, attracting nearly 28 million viewers.  It helps that she has a high rated show of her own.

More impressively, it's the nine-season-old franchise's biggest non-finale, non-debut Tuesday audience in nearly two years.

"As long as there are viewers there will be people gambling on the show," remarked O'brien.

Sports Interaction.com, Canada's first licensed online gambling website, offered odds on American Idol's 9th season for the gender of the winnerBoth male and female were around even odds though the girls were favored slightly.

Gambling911.com is the leading authority when it comes to American Idol betting.
