Of the nine couples currently competing, Season 8 champ Shawn Johnson is pegged by Bovada as the 7/4 favorite to win. The fact that the judges praised her and partner Derek Hough‘s quickstep as the best dance in the history of “DWTS” certainly didn’t hurt their rankings.
In recent weeks, Helio Castroneves, eliminated this past Tuesday, was named as the odds-on favorite, with fellow eliminees Drew Lachey and Joey Fatone not far behind, proving that this contest is anyone’s game.
The exception? Bristol Palin, consistently placed in the bottom group by oddsmakers and the “DWTS” judges –although fan voting may keep her and partner Mark Ballas on the dance floor until the final weeks.
