Who Will Win The Voice Now that it's Down to 14?
The first of "The Voice" payoffs kicked off on Monday night with no fewer than six wannabes sent home, leaving just four hopefuls to progress into the live semifinals on the night.
Coaches Blake Shelton and Chance the Rapper were tasked with putting just two of their five contestants through each, and Kelly Clarkson and Niall Horan will do the same next week.
While there were no big favorites exiting the competition this time, sixth and seventh favorites Kala Banham and Manasseh Samone have departed, as have outsiders Jamar Langley, Rachel Christine, Kylee Dayne and Mary Kate Connor.
With these hypothetical odds provided by industry sports betting experts, we've looked into which "The Voice" contestants have what it takes to be the show's season 23 winner.
NOIVAS On Fire In The Voice Playoffs
Season 23 favorite NOIVAS showed yet again why he is at the top of the market to win this year's series.
The star is now just +150, with a 40% implied probability, for victory after his pulsating playoffs performance.
Coach Chance the Rapper described NOIVAS' rendition as "fire," while Clarkson admitted she cannot see the star missing out on a place in the finale.
Horan delivered even more superlatives. He told NOIVAS, "You brought a different level of energy every week, and this week you’ve come out and you’ve put on one of the best performances we’ve seen on this show."
Shelton picked NOIVAS to advance because of his "huge performances," and the coach chose Grace West to complete his team for the live semis.
He insisted the star is the "real deal," and West's advancement has seen her price cut from +600 to +300 third favorite.
Sorelle's 'Insane' American Idol Performance
Like West, sister trio Sorelle's odds were also cut after their coach Chance the Rapper picked them to advance to the semifinals.
Sorelle is now +200 second favorite to win "The Voice" season 23 after an "insane," energetic version of Christina Aguilera's "Something’s Got a Hold on Me," according to coach Horan, who remarked how "ridiculously tight" the trio's harmonies were.
Shelton joked Sorelle is so good the performers must be "cheating," saying, "It’s too perfect. I loved the individual moments that you guys had. It was like, ‘Oh, you think we all three can’t do this separately, too? Watch this.' "
Chance the Rapper spoke about how unique Sorelle is when announcing they advanced to the semifinals.
Holly Brand (+400) and Cait Martin (+500) are down to fourth and fifth favorites to win the series, from +300 and +400 last week, but the Team Kelly pair didn't perform this week.
Uriel's Artist Potential Sees Him Through On The Voice
Chance the Rapper's second choice to represent him in the semis is Ray Uriel, after admitting the wannabe has great potential to be a successful artist.
Uriel is now +600 from +800 last week, after his playoffs success.
What's more, a Team Niall trio of Gina Miles (+700), Michael B. (+800) and Ryley Tate Wilson (+1000) is next in the betting.
The three stars' odds remained largely unchanged after a week off, with their judgment day set to come on Monday.
Elsewhere, ALI, who overcame D.Smooth way back in episode nine, is +1200 to win this year's "The Voice," while Smooth is +1400.
Smooth was one of four lucky losers -- who were picked to advance to the playoffs in the battles stage of the competition -- alongside Samone and Connor, who exited the contest this week, and Wilson.
Elsewhere, Team Niall's Ross Clayton (+1500) and Tasha Jessen (+1600), and Team Kelly's Neil Salisich (+1600), have a lot to do if they are to win this year's competition.
The trio will find out their fate on Monday, as 10 stars perform and Clarkson and Horan take two contestants each through to the semi-finals.
