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 four?

Last week, only 12% of our users correctly pegged Aly and Steve as the most likely to be axed at the end of Friday’s second of two episodes. Indeed, many of us were as surprised as they were to have to overcome both a Speed Bump and a U-Turn. If you got the 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 140 points for this prediction given their leading odds of 7/5.
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 8,000 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.
Make your first prediction as to which team will be eliminated this week using the menu to the right. Don’t worry, you can keep changing your predictions right up until show time. But we urge you not to wait till then.
Why? Because your predictions will factor into our official racetrack odds that are pored over by other “Race” fans and TV execs who want to know which teams you love and hate, who you want to win and who you are desperate to see get a send-off.

Which team will win Date Night?
Which team will win ‘The Amazing Race’?
Nine of our users got two of the five weekly questions about the second half of last Friday’s doubleheader (the Express Pass question is now out of play).
Of these, Adam Rock broke the tie by racking up the most points. He savvily placed his 500-point superbet on Aly and Steve losing this leg when they had odds of 6/1 and that earned him 3,000 points. If he is eligible, as per our contest rules, he will win a $100 Amazon gift certificate.
The outcome of the first of Friday’s episodes was easier to predict with three of our users nailing four of the five questions.
While the majority of our users knew that it would be a non-elimination leg and that there would not be a U-Turn, Benutty was one of just 12% who predicted that first-place finish for Matt and Ashley.
He broke the tie for first by forecasting that Tyler and Laura would win date night. By putting his 500-point superbet on this pick when they were at 100/1, he racked up a jaw-dropping 50,000 points. Again, if he is eligible, as per our contest rules, he also will win a $100 Amazon gift certificate.
Will anyone be able to catch him in the weeks remaining?
The overall winner will get bragging rights till the next season of the “Race” and a place of honor on our Gold Derby leaderboard.
