Never mind March Madness. Forget about the mid-term elections. All eyes -- and bets -- are on the Fox reality show "American Idol" to generate the most intense competition of the year, according to John Avello, director of race & sports operations for Wynn Las Vegas.

Avello, whose purview normally covers all on-site sports bets and nationwide horse racing for the Las Vegas Strip venue, has assessed all "Idol" contestants since the launch of the show. He has a near perfect record, pegging advance #1 rankings to winners Ruben Studdard, Fantasia and Carrie Underwood weeks before their crowning.

As of today, Avello has given open odds to win the 2006 season of "Idol" as follows:

[ VT's comments in parenthesis - Ed ]

11. Kevin: 100/1 (kevin, the toothless baby head)
10. Bucky: 35/1 (bucky bice jr.)
9. Taylor: 25/1 (blue haired soul brother)
8. Kellie: 15/1 (barbie meets dolly parton)
7. Elliott: 12/1 (who's elliot?)
6. Paris: 10/1 (hasn't wowed since her billie holiday impression)
5. Katharine: 8/1 (needs a personality injection)
4. Lisa: 6/1 (good, but an also ran)
3. Ace: 5/1 (ace is going to be out before top 4)
2. Mandisa: 9/2 (the one to beat)
and the best bet to win the fifth season of "American Idol":

1. Chris: 4/1 (Mr. Burns)
