As of this writing, La’Porsha has leading 13/5 odds (28% chance) to win this farewell season. A triumph for La’Porsha would put her in the company of five other female champs from years past: Kelly Clarkson (Season 1), Fantasia Barrino (Season 3), Carrie Underwood (Season 4), Jordin Sparks (Season 6) and Candice Glover (Season 12). Scroll through our photo gallery below of all past winners.

But Dalton isn’t far behind on our winner’s chart. He currently has 7/2 odds (21% chance) of claiming victory, despite his performance of “Radioactive” this week that garnered mixed results from the judges.

Following these two frontrunners, here are the other six singers listed in order of who our readers think have the best chance of winning Season 15:

Sonika Vaid is in third place with 9/2 odds (18% chance), Avalon Young is in fourth with 8/1 odds (11% chance), Trent Harmon is in fifth with 17/2 odds (11% chance), MacKenzie Bourg is in sixth with 12/1 odds (7% chance), and then Tristan McIntosh and Lee Jean are tied for last with lowly 100/1 odds (0% chance) apiece.
