Lauren Alaina is the early oddmakers' favorite to win the support of home viewers and become American Idol's tenth-season champion.

Alaina, a 16-year-old from Rossville, GA, who currently resides in Rossville, GA, has received 7/1 odds to win American Idol and take home the one-million dollar recording contract grand prize, according to gambling website Bodog.com.

Julie Zorrilla, a 20-year-old from Denver, CO, who currently resides in Hollywood, CA, is right on Alaina's tail as she received 15/2 odds.

While two girls semifinalists top Bodog.com's list, they are immediately followed by a quartet of guys: Paul McDonald, a 26-year-old from Huntsville, AL, who currently resides in Nashville, TN (8/1), Casey Abrams, a 20-year-old from Wilmette, IL, who currently resides in Idyllwild, CA (9/1), and Scott McCreery and Tim Halperin, who both received 10/1 odds.

Jacob Lusk is next with 12/1 odds and followed by Stefano Langone and Pia Toscano, who each received 14/1 odds.

Kendra Chantelle received 15/1 odds followed by Robbie Rosen (18/1), while both Naima Adedapo and James Durbin received the same 20/1 odds.

Lauren Turner, Haley Reinhart, Jovany Barreto, Karen Rodriguez, and Ashthon Jones are all deemed longshots to take home American Idol's tenth-season title with 25/1 odds each.

However they are followed by Thia Megia (30/1), Brett Loewenstern and Clint Jun Gamboa with 35/1 odds, and Tatynisa Wilson and Jordan Dorsey with 40/1 odds.

Lastly, bringing up the rear is Rachel Zevita, who apparently impressed the oddmakers the least and was given 50/1 odds.

American Idol's tenth-season semifinals round began on Tuesday when the Top 12 male semifinalists performed on the Idol stage for the first time. The Top 12 female semifinalists will perform during Wednesday night's episode, with home viewers casting their votes immediately after each broadcast.

The results show -- which will be a special live, two-hour broadcast that will feature the announcement of the season's finalists -- will then follow on Thursday, March 3 from 8-10PM ET/PT. 

The five male and five female semifinalists who receive the most home viewer votes will automatically advance to Idol's tenth-season finals and be joined by an unspecified number of additional "Wild Card" picks selected by new judging panel members Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler
