With four consecutive weeks scoring a top design with the judges under her belt, Laurence Basse strengthens her lead to 5/6 odds in our predictions to win this season of “Project Runway.” Trailing close behind is former frontrunner, Erin Robertson, with 3/1 odds despite three weeks of low scores.

It’s fun and easy, so start now by predicting who will be out next.
Laurence remains the only designer in the competition to have never appeared before the judges for a negative critique of her work. Instead she reigns above the field with five high scores — two of which resulted in wins and two of which named the runner-up. Such a streak has lead many “Project Runway” designers to a win before, precedent that has caused predictors to anoint her the most likely winner for a now second week in a row.
Prior to Laurence, the frontrunner to win was Erin, who had held the spot for the first seven weeks of competition. But Erin’s work has suffered in the last three weeks and she was appropriately dropped two second in the ranks, though still with more confidence to win than any of the remaining designers. Behind her is Rik Villa in third place with 14/1 odds to win and Cornelius Ortiz in fourth place with 16/1 odds.
