According to Week 8’s exclusive Gold Derby odds, derived from predictions by users like you, Becky Burgess is the overwhelming favorite to get the boot tonight. She has an 81% chance of being eliminated, which translates to 2/9 racetrack odds. Comparatively, her block-mate John McGuire only has a 9% chance of heading home, or 10/1 odds.
When Liz Nolan won the Head of Household competition earlier this week, she was initially torn on whether to evict Becky or John. However, after John informed her that his target was Vanessa Rousso because of her untrustworthy behavior, Liz and Austin Matelson decided to start working with John.
But anything can still happen during tonight’s eviction episode. Don’t forget, heading into last Thursday’s live show the majority of our users thought that Vanessa was going home, but due to some last-minute maneuvering, Vanessa managed to survive while Shelli Poole went home. Might Becky Burgess find a way to save herself tonight?

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.
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 “So You Think You Can Dance” and “Survivor.”

To vote for who you think will be eliminated next, drag your chosen contestant over from the left to the right.
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.
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.
