Las Vegas Odds For The Dancing With The Stars Season 19 Semi-Finals

The odds makers at Sports Bovada have made their new predictions for the semi-finals of Dancing With The Stars Season 19. Take a look below and see if you agree with them and then let us know what you think in comments.

Alfonso Ribeiro 1/2
Janel Parrish 4/1
Bethany Mota 7/1
Sadie Robertson 15/1
Tommy Chong 25/1

My thoughts: It seems the odds makers have been a mixed bag all season, but, one thing is definite. They won’t budge on their choice for Alfonso Ribeiro being the winner. Although I love Alfonso, I’m not too sure he’s going to win especially with injuries plaguing him. I think it’s going to be between Bethany and Sadie who wins. I also get a really strong feeling on Sadie, but, I will tell you more on that in DonaMadrina and I’s Finals Numerology and Astrology post. As for their prediction for Tommy leaving this week, they are probably right, but, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Janel go instead.

Let’s see what Miss Heidi and Court think….

Heidi: Man, they do this every season – they should just hang it up. All they do is go by the scores. They might have Bethany right – would not be surprised to see her take third. But Sadie in 4th place??? I think that girl is going to give Alfonso a SERIOUS run for his money. She’s a natural, she’s extremely likable – hell, her crying last week made ME cry! I’m almost at the point of calling it Sadie’s trophy for real – but it’s too close. I would say it’s a three way race between Beth, Alfonso and Sadie and that Beth is a distant third in that trio.

Courtney: Alfonso WILL remain in the competition, and he WILL win. I’m willing it to happen :-) Ugh…even the oddsmakers are buying into the Janel hype. I can tell you this much: demographically, I think Sadie is annihilating Janel in terms of votes – I’d stake my life on it. At this point, I think Alfonso & Sadie end up as the final two, regardless – and I pick Alfonso by a slight margin, simply because I don’t trust the judges to not lowball Sadie. I think Janel & Bethany duke it out for 3rd & 4th – maybe Bethany with a slight advantage. I think it would take nothing short of a miracle for Tommy to make the finale.

New DWTS Season 19 Week 4 Las Vegas Odds: What do you think?

The odds makers at Sports Bovada have made their new predictions. It’s amazing how tight they are this season for the top seven. Have we ever had that many contestants so close like that? Note too how Tommy Chung just entered this top group as well and rightfully so in my opinion. *sigh in remembering his “Scent Of A Woman” dance. That dance is going down as one of my all time favorites! Though note how Antonio Sabato Jr. has fallen from last weeks odds. The odds makers are still putting Betsey Johnson and Michael Waltrip at the very bottom too. So, what do you think? Are the odds makers right this time? I think Bethany Mota should be in the top spot. I also think Sadie Robertson should have better odds. They should atleast have her in 4th position? Let’s see what Heidi and Courtney think. Be sure to let us know what you think too.

Janel Parrish 2/1
Bethany Mota 9/4
Alfonso Ribeiro 4/1
Lea Thompson 7/1
Sadie Robertson 10/1
Tommy Chong 12/1
Jonathan Bennett 14/1
Antonio Sabato Jr. 33/1
Betsey Johnson 66/1
Michael Waltrip 200/1

Last week’s Odds:

Alfonso Ribeiro 5/2
Lea Thompson 11/4
Janel Parrish 3/1
Bethany Mota 5/1
Sadie Robertson 7/1
Antonio Sabato Jr. 20/1
Jonathan Bennett 20/1
Randy Couture 33/1
Tommy Chong 50/1
Betsey Johnson 100/1
Michael Waltrip 200/1

Courtney: One perfect score does not a champion make, oddsmakers – I know you’re just totally sold on Janel now, but I still think Alfonso is *almost* a sure thing (provided that TPTB resist the urge to do too much tinkering, which I can’t guarantee).  I’d put money on it that he’s back at the top of the odds next week, because I have a feeling he’s going to SLAY this jazz.  And I think Sadie’s got more staying power than Lea at this point.  As for the tail end of the of odds – ehhh, I think Mike has better odds than both Betsey & Antonio, simply because he’s charming.  I think Jonathan is in the right place – I’m becoming a bit dubious about how many votes he’s getting.

Heidi: I think the top 6 is right, just in the totally wrong order. :-)  These odds makers blow with the wind (aka scores) with no concept of the votes – or in the history of this show.  I think this season still belongs to Alfonso, and I would wager that Bethany fares better than Janel – although I don’t know if she’ll be in second place.  I would bet, right now, that Lea takes 6th place, Janel 5th, Tommy 4th, Sadie and Bethany will be 2nd and 3rd – just not sure in which order – and Alfonso in the top spot.  BUT, I may change my mind depending on what they do to Alfonso this week. The man is easily the best dancer on the show, but sometimes, they try to keep the best dancers down to suit some agenda. Last season it was Charlie that was dogged so that Meryl could succeed. What I can’t see is why they need for Janel or Bethany to succeed over Alfonso – what is the motivation there??  Is it all about the kids?? Could be. And why the f@*k can’t they just score them appropriately?? I watched Janel’s dance again and it’s was lots of flash, but really not all that much substance. Why are they giving out a 40 to ANYONE in week 3, including Bethany (although they had little choice after giving Janel one), while giving the best dancer (Alfonso) and 8 point disadvantage?? So, one of two things will happen: they will either continue to pan Alfonso (at which point I change my thoughts on the final 4 rankings) or we will see a big reversal for DRAMA – that is, Bethany and Janel take a tumble, while Sadie and Alfonso rise to the top.

DWTS19 Going Into Week 3 Las Vegas Odds: What do you think?

Well, the odds makers for Dancing With The Stars were definitely wrong last week at Sports Bovada. Though I think many us never guessed that Tavis Smiley would be eliminated this week. So, what does this all mean for Dancing With The Stars Season 19 Week 3? Note how Lea has moved up the ladder to second place with 11/4 odds. I’m still not really convinced on her yet and that she will make it to the final four? As tight as the odds are, I wonder why Sadie and Bethany aren’t placed higher too? I think they are better than Janel. I think I agree with how the other couples are placed and their odds. Let’s see what Heidi and Court think? You can read their comments below. Be sure to let us know what you think too in comments.

Alfonso Ribeiro 5/2
Lea Thompson 11/4
Janel Parrish 3/1
Bethany Mota 5/1
Sadie Robertson 7/1
Antonio Sabato Jr. 20/1
Jonathan Bennett 20/1
Randy Couture 33/1
Tommy Chong 50/1
Betsey Johnson 100/1
Michael Waltrip 200/1

Last week’s Odds:

Alfonso Ribeiro 3/2
Sadie Robertson 3/1
Bethany Mota 7/1
Lea Thompson 15/2
Janel Parrish 8/1
Jonathan Bennett 10/1
Randy Couture 15/1
Tavis Smiley 15/1
Antonio Sabato Jr. 25/1
Tommy Chong 33/1
Betsey Johnson 100/1
Michael Waltrip 100/1

Courtney: I’m convinced now more than ever that Janel could be a surprise snub for the finale – starting to get the same vibe from her that I got from both Elizabeth & Danica, and we saw what happened in both of those instances.  So I’m definitely not buying 3/1 odds for her to win.  Bethany & Sadie are a bit trickier – I think both are likely just as popular (if not more so than Janel), but neither one has had a really impactful, look-at-me dance yet.  From what we’ve heard, this week could be the week that Bethany finally makes a big splash (no pun intended, given their song :-P).  Apparently Sadie is looking quite good as well – Janel’s got a tougher row to hoe this week, I think, because she’s now pitted against Bethany, who is also doing jazz.  And I get the feeling Sadie fans are a bit peeved at how she was treated this past week…so it will be interesting to see who ends up in jeopardy this coming week.  As for the bottom & middle of the pack – still think Randy’s getting lowballed a bit, and I’m thinking Jonathan isn’t as good as they think – after this past week, I think he may have a bit of a liability in Allison, who is still learning the ropes of DWTS.  Not quite sure what to make of Antonio – he was more likeable this week, but I still feel like I keep forgetting him altogether.

Heidi:  It’s pretty clear, once again, that the odds makers are going mainly with the scoring, which is rather foolish.  With the exception of Alfonso, of course. I think most people see the word “winner” written on his forehead at this point. As for Janel, not only does she have the Danica/Elizabeth problem that Courtney mentioned, she also has the Cody/James problem.  That being, I don’t think the show can sustain her AND Bethany AND Sadie – and my  money is on Bethany and Sadie.  People tend to pick ONE of a certain type, so either Bethany or Sadie could be in trouble once Janel is gone (week 7 or 8 – let’s bet on that), but this season it might work out that they both make the semi-finals, at least, because the rest of the pack aren’t as competitive when it comes to dancing. At least right now. Much as people like to say otherwise, scores DO count for half and if Bethany, Sadie and Alfonso are scoring significantly higher than the rest, then they could stick around. Randy, Jonathan and Antonio are the wild cards in this situation. If their dancing improves, then one of them could send either Bethany or Sadie home after Janel. Question is, can the show sustain both Randy AND Antonio??

DWTS19 Going Into Week 2 Las Vegas Odds Discussion

What an interesting shake up at Sports Bovada going into week 2 of Dancing With The Stars. Note how they gave Lolo Jones 7 to 1 odds last week….and well, we know how that turned out. So, when you take a look at the new odds for this week, do you think the odds makers have it right this time?

Alfonso Ribeiro 3/2
Sadie Robertson 3/1
Bethany Mota 7/1
Lea Thompson 15/2
Janel Parrish 8/1
Jonathan Bennett 10/1
Randy Couture 15/1
Tavis Smiley 15/1
Antonio Sabato Jr. 25/1
Tommy Chong 33/1
Betsey Johnson 100/1
Michael Waltrip 100/1

Last week’s Odds:

Alfonso Ribeiro 3/1
Janel Parrish 5/1
Antonio Sabato Jr. 6/1
Jonathan Bennett 7/1
Lolo Jones 7/1
Sadie Robertson 9/1
Bethany Mota 10/1
Tavis Smiley 12/1
Randy Couture 15/1
Lea Thompson 20/1
Betsey Johnson 33/1
Michael Waltrip 33/1
Tommy Chong 50/1

My thoughts: I think they have the odds pretty correct. Though I am not convinced on Lea yet. I think they should switch her and Randy Couture. Even though Tavis had a great showing, I thought Antonio made a better one. As for everyone else, I think they are placed about right…for now.

Let’s see what Heidi and Courtney think and be sure to let us know on your thoughts too in comments.

Heidi: Actually, unless Val picks it up (and the judges start pimping), I think Randy should be switched with *Janel*, not Lea. Lea is a dancer and a very good one, even considering her age. Her only drawback may be Artem. Artem needs to choreograph for the US audience, not the UK one.  We’ll see if he gets there. I rewatched Lea’s foxtrot again and it was beautiful. I actually think they have the top 4 right, and the number 1 right. I expect if any of them have an off week the odds will change but I doubt that will change the reality. Hard to say. The youngsters don’t always get the votes. I would not be surprised to see Sadie beat both Janel and Bethany though because the girl is goofy and charming. Bethany is too, but she’s a bit quieter, I think. But…maybe that was just week 1. Derek knows what he has to do for her to stand out.  If he gets the idea that she’s not? Look out. :-)  I think I would switch Tommy and Tavis as well.

Courtney: Hehehe…heavy is the crown, huh Janel & Antonio? Antonio’s drop in this week’s odds is particularly spectacular – here they had him as this big contender, and he…well, wasn’t.  Just like we said :-) And I wouldn’t rule him out as a possible early elim. And for all the boasting Val did on Twitter about how great his partner is (and for all the showmancing they did), Janel ended up looking just ok up against the likes of Bethany, Sadie, Alfonso, & even Randy. Those two have got a LOT of hard work ahead of them if they expect to have a fighting chance against some of the names I just mentioned. Still think Randy is better than they’re giving him credit for – he made a far bigger splash than Tavis, and yet they still have them neck-and-neck.  Michael is not a great dancer, but I think he’s got a better chance of sticking around than Betsey – people seem to be taking a liking to him.

Las Vegas Odds For DWTS Season 18 Week 8, Do You Agree or Disagree With Them?

Sorry for the lack of Las Vegas Odds posts this season, but, Sports Bovada and other sources haven’t been posting and/or updating them like they use to. However, Sports Bovada updated their odds for Dancing With The Stars this week. Take a look below and let us know if you think this is about right?

Meryl Davis 1/2
Amy Purdy 4/1
Charlie White 5/1
James Maslow 10/1
Danica McKellar 15/1
Candace Cameron Bure 50/1

My thoughts: The way the judges are pimping Meryl (which I think is totally wrong), the odds makers probably have it correct. I do think they have the top three correct, but, I think it should be Charlie and Amy at the top with Meryl in third (if we were to judge who has had the most clean and challenging dances, etc). For fourth, I think it’s going to be between James and Danica. These next few dances will be telling for them both as anything could happen. Even though she improved last week, one placement I totally agree with is how they have placed Candace.

Let’s see what Heidi and Court think….

Courtney: You know the pimping is bad when they have Meryl at 1/2 odds – which means that for every $2 that you bet that she will win, you’ll only get $1 back if she actually wins.  If that seems like a bad investment, it is – but because the oddsmakers think she’s such a sure thing, it’s the only way they can profit from bets made on her. :-P That’s pretty bad – especially when it seems like the judges are doing everything in their power to keep Charlie from getting within spitting distance of Meryl on the scoreboard.  Although if the outrage I saw this week after he got hosed (yet again) is actually translating to votes, now might be a good time to put some money on Charlie…because the tides could turn.  I don’t think they can get away with severely hosing him in the semifinals or finals…and the gap between he & Meryl could close quite a bit in those weeks as more couples go home.  As for the rest of the board – I’m kind of torn on Candace & Danica; Danica is the better dancer, but I get the feeling she’s not as popular with the fans…whereas Candace, the weaker dancer, seems to be connecting more.  I think James is about right sitting the middle of everything.

Heidi: I don’t recall that pimping has ever worked in the past, to any real degree. Didn’t work with William Levy, didn’t work with Chelsea Kane, didn’t work with Zendaya (although she was pimped to a lesser extent than her predecessors), didn’t work with Gilles (part deux)…I can’t remember if Melissa (part deux) or Brandy were truly pimped. I think we thought Brandy was, at the time, but then the real pimping began in later seasons. Melissa I do think was pretty well pimped the second time around, but she also had a set of other factors working in her favor, not the least of which was that she was the only non-winner in the final three of the All Star season.  So that’s 0.5 out of six??  Not good odds on Meryl.  However, if the judges don’t let up, they could have success number two on their hands. I like Meryl – I just don’t think she’s that much better than Charlie and I find him and Sharna infinitely MORE likeable.  Will he win out in the end? I would like to see that, if only to see TPTB’s plans blow up in their faces. :-)  Anyway, barring further injury to Amy, I tend to think the top three are correct, I’m just not sure it’s in that particular order. I also am not sure that James will last as long as fourth place. Yeah, he’s got fans, but Danica and Candace’s fans are right in the DWTS wheelhouse. I guess we’ll see. :-)

Dancing With The Stars Season 18 Week 4 Las Vegas Odds To Win

Last week, Sports Bovada didn’t post their new odds for Dancing With The Stars, so that’s why you didn’t see us post on them. However, they have posted a new set of odds for Dancing With The Stars Week 4! Note how tight they are to previous seasons at this time which is a credit to this cast of dancers. Also, note how Amy Purdy moved up to second place ahead of Charlie White!! After she and Derek’s dance this past week, it’s no wonder…

Meryl Davis 7/4
Amy Purdy 5/2
Charlie White 3/1
James Maslow 10/1
Danica McKellar 10/1
Candace Cameron Bure 15/1
Cody Simpson 20/1
NeNe Leakes 25/1
Drew Carey 33/1

Odds two weeks ago:

Charlie White 5/2
Meryl Davis 5/2
Amy Purdy 4/1
Candace Cameron Bure 11/2
Danica McKellar 15/2
James Maslow 10/1
Cody Simpson 20/1
Drew Carey 25/1
NeNe Leakes 25/1
Sean Avery 33/1
Billy Dee Williams 100/1
Diana Nyad 100/1

So, what do you think? Do the odds makers have it right this week? I think they do with an exception to Nene, Drew, and Cody. I think Nene should be in last place. I think Candace should be lowered to next to last with Drew and Cody in the middle of the pack. Other than that, they have it about right.

Court and Heidi, what do you think?

Courtney: *shrug* Do the odds really even matter anymore, with all of the shady business going on behind the scenes? I feel like I’m betting on a fixed boxing match.  I guess I understand why Meryl is at the top – seems like she’s being set up as the golden girl now, after a few weeks of Charlie actually being the golden boy.  Do I think she’ll actually win? Hell no.  Mark my words, the “setting up” will backfire.  Glad to see Amy moving up; looks like everyone else is kind of staying the same.  I would put NeNe before Drew, though – I doubt the Real Housewives fanbase is going to carry her a whole lot further, past switch week.

Heidi: I’m kinda with Courtney. And I think Charlie will end up winning in the end. I think we’re going to get to some dances that Amy may struggle with and I think Meryl will come off too much like a sure thing and it will backfire. People do like an underdog and they’re the ones putting Charlie there – really, he talks in his package about how it’s nice to be at the top of the leaderboard and then he’s underscored to make sure he’s lower than Meryl? That’s not at all transparent!! If they don’t hose Meryl but good a couple times, or at least get real with Maks on not upping the choreo, I think she’ll lose.  They had her 3 points ahead of the next couples – bad idea.  I do agree that Drew will last longer than NeNe – he just has a larger fanbase and unless they start overscoring her and underscoring him, I think he outlasts her.  I do wonder if we’re going to see a “shocking” elimination of either Candice or Danica – Candace because she’s not dancing that well and is kind of in the background (note they didn’t even really show her Full House cast in the audience) or Danica because Maks is back and any cross over voting Val might have benefited from in the past is going all to Maks to help him win. And if not….well, that supports my Meryl isn’t going to win wager. :-)  If not one of the women, possibly either Cody or James and I’m leaning toward Cody right now because James is making a strong showing.

New Las Vegas Odds For DWTS Season 18 Week 2: Speaking of Switches

Sports Bovada has posted their new odds for Dancing With The Stars Week 2. As always, there is a shake up after we see them dance the first time. This week they have Meryl and Charlie tied for first and note how Amy has moved up the ladder to 3rd! Danica and Candace has also moved up knocking Cody and James down. I love how Drew Carey made a move as well. I think Sean should be higher, but, I would say the tie at the bottom for last is about right, would you?

Charlie White 5/2
Meryl Davis 5/2
Amy Purdy 4/1
Candace Cameron Bure 11/2
Danica McKellar 15/2
James Maslow 10/1
Cody Simpson 20/1
Drew Carey 25/1
NeNe Leakes 25/1
Sean Avery 33/1
Billy Dee Williams 100/1
Diana Nyad 100/1

Last weeks odds:

Meryl Davis 3/2
Charlie White 3/1
Cody Simpson 6/1
James Maslow 6/1
Amy Purdy 10/1
Candace Cameron Bure 15/1
Danica McKellar 15/1
NeNe Leakes 15/1
Sean Avery 20/1
Billy Dee Williams 25/1
Diana Nyad 33/1
Drew Carey 33/1

Let’s get Miss Heidi and Court’s thoughts and be sure to let us know your thoughts as well in comments.

Courtney: I actually agree with this week’s odds, for the most part – the fact that James’ odds are twice as good as Cody’s has me really puzzled, though.  Were we watching the same show, oddsmakers? Because Cody made a pretty big splash on Monday, while James was just treading water…and I don’t expect that to change a whole lot throughout the course of the season.  I think we might begin to see more of a gap between Meryl & Charlie as the weeks wear on, as well – I’m guessing he’s going to continue to thrill each week, while she might have some off-weeks (which I’m thinking may have to do more with Maks’ choreography than anything else).  And if my gut feeling is right,  I think Candace & Danica may flip-flip back and forth in the odds each week – I get the feeling they’re setting that one up to be a neck-and-neck race, with the girls alternating who does better each week.  Other than that, I think the odds are pretty spot-on…I might have given Billy Dee a slight edge over Diana, just in terms of fanbase, but that’s kind of a moot point…

Heidi: Yeah, I’m not finding anything to argue with on this one. Shocker. :-)  I think Meryl and Charlie will remain at the top and Amy, Danica and Candace will flip flop around with each other depending on how they do in a given week. Aaaannnndddd…..I got nuthin’ else. :-D

DWTS Season 17 Las Vegas Odds Going Into The Finals, Tighter Than Tight Tight

Wow, since my time of reporting at PureDWTS, I don’t remember the odds makers putting out such tight odds for the finals of Dancing With The Stars? Also, check out how they’ve placed Bill Engvall in 3rd with 5/1 odds!! Amazing. I’m literally in shock. Not that I don’t think Bill might not get 3rd (especially after seeing how he danced during his Argentine tango), but, hasn’t Jack Osbourne proven he’s a better dancer than Bill? If I were betting, I’d put all my chips with Amber Riley and Corbin Bleu. I also still think the dark horse is Jack. Then again, maybe it’s Bill? I’m starting to get confused. 8O Anyway, good luck to them all. I really love every single one of them and wish them the best! Below is more from Sports Bovada.

Corbin Bleu 1/1
Amber Riley 5/4
Bill Engvall 5/1
Jack Osbourne 10/1

Below are last week’s odds:

Corbin Bleu 2/3
Amber Riley 8/5
Leah Remini 9/1
Jack Osbourne 12/1
Bill Engvall 25/1

Court and Heidi, what do you think?

Courtney: First off, I’m just glad that at this point, any of the couples left could walk away with the trophy and I could honestly say I’d be fine with it – and I don’t think I’ve EVER felt that way about a finale before.  There always seems to be at least one finalist per season that I really don’t want to win – but I like all the couples left.  So right of the bat – I’m just happy to have a bit of that weight off my shoulders :-) As for who’s actually going to win – I’m feeling a bit less resolute in my belief that Corbin & Amber will be the final two standing, and I think Jack could potentially play spoiler and end up either in second place or winning the whole thing.  Why? Because Jack seems to be the “alternative” choice – those who are from the “no ringers!!!” camp won’t vote for Corbin & Amber, and those from the “this is a dance show, a good dancer should win!” camp won’t vote for Bill; but as Carrie Ann mentioned in her blog, the only thing that viewers seem to universally agree on is that Jack deserves to be there. He very well may be the dark horse to win this thing – especially since I’m starting to notice more backlash against Amber & Corbin (Corbin in particular) these past few days.  As much as I love Bill, I think the judges are going to do everything in their power to ensure that he doesn’t get any better than 4th place – but then again, I think they’ve been trying to boot him out for several weeks now, and it hasn’t worked.  I think he may be able to eek out 3rd – especially if there’s a bit of a shock and Corbin is the first to get booted out of the finale.  I’m really beginning to wonder if Corbin’s not been getting a ton of votes – I think he’s a better dancer than Amber, but I also think she’s more current and likeable; I think they could potentially be splitting some votes, too, since it seems to me like those who watched High School Musical 6 years ago are probably the type to tune into Glee now.  For that reason, I’m leaning towards Amber taking the MBT – 5th MBT for Derek backlash notwithstanding, I think she’s got the votes to carry her through.

Heidi: Ah hell, I don’t know. :-) I waffle in my weaker moments to thinking Amber or Corbin will be the one shut out on Monday night, to thinking that Amber will win, to thinking Jack will win – mostly I still think it’s Corbin’s to lose…and lose he could if Derek’s “I’ve never done this before” freestyle is as awesome as Amber seems to think it is.  Karina is amazing…but Derek is in his own league any more.  Derek also is VERY Zen these days and Karina still tends to get very anxious at this time of the season when she has a contender.   Cheryl seems to be her old self and should NOT be underestimated. She can certainly craft something tailor made for Jack’s strengths. Bill is charming but has a groin pull – bad news for the finale.  But I don’t think he stands a serious chance at winning anyway.  If you go by the ratings – in addition to what happened last season – there seems to be a lot more viewers and a lot more voters for the finale. I think that’s why Kellie beat Zendaya. Going on that theory, Bill’s fans who have been with him all season may lose some power – or be overwhelmed by new voters. Johnny come latelys. :-) And Corbin or Amber – whoever kills their freestyle – could gain some power. At the end of the day, I think finale voters are going to look at Derek and not give him another MBT. Advantage Corbin. :-)

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko . For fun music and dance mixes, visit WilUnleashed Soundcloud.
