According to Week 5’s exclusive Gold Derby odds that are derived from the predictions made by users like you, these four were among those with the best odds of being put up on the block. James led our chart with 15/8 odds, followed by Becky at 11/2 odds, and then Liz and Clay were tied at 15/2 odds. Austin Matelson was actually third place at 13/2 odds, but he escaped being put on the block for now.

The Battle of the Block competition saw the players throwing paint against the walls to reveal names of previous houseguests, with James and Liz winning in a real nail-biter. They dethroned their HOH Jackie Ibarra, thereby ensuring that Vanessa Rousso would remain the sole HOH for the rest of the week.

Will Victoria’s plans of backdooring former ally Austin come to fruition, or will she decide to keep the Sixth Sense alliance in tact?

In our “Big Brother” predictions center, you get to answer the following questions for the rest of Week 4:

To vote for who you think will be eliminated next, drag your chosen contestant over from the left to the right. For example, if you think Becky will get the boot, make sure you put her in first place.

Every time someone logs their predictions, the racetrack odds of the contestants are automatically updated. If the majority of users think Becky will go home, that means she’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.

‘Big Brother’ poll: Who’s the WORST winner of all time?

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.
