According to Gold Derby’s official odds, it looks like the end of the road for Rochelle and Mike on tonight’s episode of “The Amazing Race.” Do you agree or disagree that this dating couple will just miss making the final three?
Last week, an impressive 42% of our users foresaw that the newly engaged Matt and Ashley would end up being eliminated at the end of the 10th episode. If you got that result right, why are you not taking part in our predictions contest? Do you have what it takes to be the best among the most fervent fans of the “Race”?
If I go with Rochelle and Mike and they are eliminated, I will only earn 83 points for this prediction given their leading odds of 5/6.
However, if I predict the battling Blair and Hayley and put my 500-point super bet on this blind date couple being axed, I will earn a whopping 16,500 points.
This is where the strategy — and fun — comes into play here at Gold Derby when making your weekly predictions.
Who will be last to the mat this week? There’s still time to visit our predictions center and make/update your forecasts before voting closes tonight at 5 p.m. PT/ 8 p.m. ET. Don’t forget, whichever user earns the highest prediction accuracy and most points will win a $100 Amazon gift certificate.

That move earned him 10,000 points. And he picked up 1,600 points for predicting 200 points on Jelani and Jenny winning Date Night when their odds were 8/1.

In second place is Renzo, who racked up those same points as exxdee for his predictions of the elimination and that there would be no U-Turn. He also correctly foresaw that win for Blair and Hayley. By putting 200 points on them when their odds were 13/2, he got a payout of 1,300 points.
