Following the elimination of Japanese dance crew Siro-A last week, comedian Drew Lynch skyrocketed up our winner’s chart to take their position in our #2 slot. But Drew’s 9/2 odds to win are nothing compared to those of ventriloquist Paul Zerdin, who leads all acts with 11/8 odds. Do you agree or disagree with those rankings? Hurry – make your own predictions and you could win our prize of a $100 Amazon gift certificate. It’s fun and easy, so start now by scrolling down and predicting which five acts will advance to the finals.
According to the odds that are derived from the predictions made by users like you, either Lynch or Zerdin will win the $1 million prize and headline their own show in Las Vegas. But since there are 16 acts still in the running, it’s truly anyone’s game.
Following these two frontrunners, comedian/magician Piff the Magic Dragon is in our third-place position to win Season 10 with 6/1 odds. In fourth place is singing duo The CraigLewis Band with 12/1 odds, while The Professional Regurgitator sits comfortably in fifth place with odds of 33/1
All other acts have lowly 100/1 odds to win, but there are still two weeks left to vote in our prediction contest and influence the rankings. Which acts do YOU think our odds-makers are underestimating?
Making your predictions is fun and easy. Just log into your Gold Derby account, or you can register for a free account via Facebook, Twitter or Google. Get started with your own predictions by answering the following questions:
Which acts will advance to next round?
Will Howard Stern hit his X?
Will Heidi Klum hit her X?
Will Mel B hit her X?
Will Howie Mandel hit his X?
Who will win ‘America’s Got Talent’?
Every week, the eligible user with the highest prediction accuracy and most points will win a $100 Amazon gift certificate, so it’s beneficial to keep coming back often and making/updating your predictions. The “AGT” performance shows air Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC, while the results shows are Wednesdays at 8 p.m.
After logging in, click on the “Predictions” button found at the top-right of every page. That will bring you to a list of every event currently being predicted at Gold Derby — everything from the Emmys and Oscars to “Big Brother” and “So You Think You Can Dance.”
Click on any box and then scroll down to start making your predictions. For each TV show, cast your votes on several different questions relating to the upcoming episode. If you click on the “America’s Got Talent” button, you’ll see something like this:
To vote for who you think will advance to the next round, drag your chosen contestants over from the left to the right and arrange them in your predicted order. Every time someone logs their predictions, the racetrack odds of the contestants are automatically updated.
For example, if the majority of users think The Professional Regurgitator will go through, that means he’ll have the best odds and will go to the front of the pack. Conversely, the contestants who don’t receive many predictions have the worst odds and will go to the bottom of the pile.
Remember that coming out on top doesn’t just mean answering that week’s questions correctly. You also have to use your three big bets (500 points and two of 200 points) strategically to score the most game points. If you bet on a longshot who pulls off an upset, you can really rack up the points, so don’t take them for granted.
Average Gold Derby users just like YOU often turn out to be our smartest prognosticators, so it’s important that you give us your predictions. You can continue to update and change your predictions throughout the week, just click “Save Predictions” when you’ve settled on your choice.
