California tops Miss USA odds

Katy Perry sings that girls from The Golden State are unforgettable and undeniable, and the oddsmakers seem to be in agreement as Miss California has been set as the 9/2 favorite to win this Sunday's Miss USA Pageant.

Historically, the women of California have had success at this event, with five wins. That's second only to Texas, which boasts nine victories. California, though, will be looking to end a drought this weekend, as the state last won the pageant back in 1992.

Miss South Carolina (6/1), Miss Indiana (10/1), Miss Arizona (12/1), Miss Hawaii (12/1), and Miss Michigan (12/1) round out the top tier of contenders for the 2011 Miss USA Pageant at Bovada, with Miss Massachusetts and Miss Tennessee both at 15/1 odds.

So who has the edge? Well, it would be impossible to properly handicap this prop bet without first viewing each of the women, preferably using some sort of high-quality photo gallery where they are all wearing swimsuits.

Unfortunately, it seems unlikely that such a gallery would exist (cough LINK cough).

The 2011 Miss USA Pageant broadcast begins at 9:00pm ET on NBC on Sunday night. Here are the complete Bovada odds for the event:
