Lauren Alaina, Julie Zorrilla Lead 'American Idol' 24, Oddsmaker Says

Bodog.com also ranks Paul McDonald and Casey Abrams as tentative favorites.

They've already survived Hollywood Week, Las Vegas and even that very long walk down the airplane hangar, but now, the real competition begins. On Tuesday night (March 1), the "American Idol" Top 24 will sing for their lives — guys first, followed by the girls on Wednesday — and it will be up to viewers at home to determine just who moves on.

And though there's still a long way to go until we reach the finals in May, that hasn't stopped some "Idol" hopefuls from already surging to the front of the field ... at least, according to the oddsmakers, that is.

With the Top 24 set to tip off, the folks at Bodog.com have just released their odds for each of the remaining contestants, a list that's topped by early frontrunner (and Steven Tyler favorite) Lauren Alaina, who is a 7/1 favorite to win the season-10 crown.

The bubbly teen edges out Julie Zorrilla, whom Bodog has given 15/2 odds; soulful singer Paul McDonald (8/1); and Casey Abrams (9/1). Deep-voiced country crooner Scotty McCreery and Tim Halperin round out the Bodog top five, each getting 10/1 odds.

The Bodog oddsmakers were lukewarm on a few other frontrunners, giving big-voiced gospel standout Jacob Lusk only 12/1 odds to win the season-10 title, followed by likeable heartthrob Stefano Langone and polished, poised Pia Toscano (14/1 odds) and Kendra Chantelle at 15/1.

And if you're a fan of folks like TaTynisa Wilson, Jordan Dorsey or Rachel Zevita, well, you probably won't be tuning in to "Idol" for very long. Bodog has those three as the biggest long-shots to win the title, with Wilson and Dorsey each getting 40/1 odds and Zevita bringing up the rear at 50/1.
