After a strong showing on the first episode of Top Chef: Las Vegas the odds have been seriously scrambled for week two.

Despite not ranking in the top spot on either challenge (or even in the top four for the elimination challenge), Wynn Director of Race & Sports Operations Johnny Avello has L.A.-based Michael Voltaggio with the best odds, at 4/1 at the moment. The season’s other Mike, Jersey boy Isabella, likely agrees with Avello’s assessment. Isabella worked with the younger Voltaggio brother to open L.A. hotspot The Bazaar by José Andrés at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills.

“I’m like, maybe I shouldn’t have come this season,” Isabella said, after giving the blonde chef a hug at the Top Chef house. On Voltaggio’s heels in the odds are Jennifer Carroll of 10 Arts by Eric Ripert in Philadelphia who won the first “Quickfire” cook off and week one winner Kevin Gillespie, clocking in at 6/1.

With the culinary incarnations of vice still fresh in our minds, here are the week two handicaps for Top Chef: Las Vegas.

Michael Voltaggio - Week 1: 11/1 ---- Week 2: 4/1

Jennifer Carroll - Week 1: 20/1 ---- Week 2: 5/1
