DWTS Season 22 Week 2 Las Vegas Odds – Let us know what you think?

Sports Bavada didn’t post Las Vegas Odds for Dancing With The Stars Season 22 Week 2, but, Bookmake.eu.com posted their odds again.

ANTONIO BROWN 355
PAIGE VANZANT 373
JODIE SWEETIN 379
GINGER ZEE 508
NYLE DIMARCO 636
VON MILLER 781
MISCHA BARTON 891
WANYA MORRIS 943
KIM FIELDS 2049
DOUG FLUTIE 2830
GERALDO RIVERA 3967
MARLA MAPLES 4030

Below are last weeks odds:

JODIE SWEETIN 410
ANTONIO BROWN 550
PAIGE VANZANT 560
GINGER ZEE 570
NYLE DIMARCO 645
WANYA MORRIS 715
MISCHA BARTON 834
VON MILLER 889
KIM FIELDS 1230
DOUG FLUTIE 1600
MARLA MAPLES 2700
GERALDO RIVERA 3962

Vogue: I’m really disagreeing with the odds makers at BM this week. Why is Marla last? I fear it’s because some can’t get past that she was once Donald Trump’s wife which is sad. I was also surprised to see Kim so low as well. She and Sasha are so fun and they came out like firecrackers for their first dance. I would think both of them would be in the middle of the pack somewhere. Also, Jodi Sweetin is too high and Wanya is wayyyyy too low. Nyle should be more at the top as well. And what about Mischa? She should be at the bottom. What a goofy week in odds. Be sure to tell us what you think in comments. Heidi and Court what do you think?

Courtney: Whatever the oddsmakers are on – I want some 😛 It’s almost as if they’re a week behind – as if these odds are based more on the preseason hype we heard and not what we actually saw on Monday night.  Heck, it almost seems like they were lurking here – several of us were talking about both Marla & Geraldo as early outs, and how we thought Antonio was a lock for the finale.  Then Monday happened, and things kinda got shaken up – right now, rather than seeing a clear front-runner or a clear order, I’m more seeing tiers of skill/fanbase. I would argue that, based on Monday’s show, Wanya & Nyle should be about neck-and-neck for the top spot.  The next tier would be some combination of Ginger, Antonio, & Von – not sure what order I’d really put them in; right below them should be Paige, Jodie, & Kim (not necessarily in that order); Marla & Doug slightly below that (again, not sure who I’d put higher); and then Mischa & Geraldo in the basement.  I fully expect this could change come Monday, as I think Antonio could potentially surge, Ginger will likely get lavished with praise again, and Wanya and/or Nyle could get nitpicked a bit. Part of me kinda hopes it’s Mischa going home instead of Geraldo, because I’m getting the impression more and more that the former is not having much fun and at least the latter seems to be enjoying himself.

Heidi: As per usual, they have things all screwed up. It does make me wonder though…are they getting their odds based on actual betting? Because, when you look at their odds that way it puts a new spin on things.  Only not really, because you have the Steeler and the MMA girl at the top and there’s tons of sports betting all the time so to people who gamble, those two are really familiar.  🙂 It does make the rest of their lineup interesting. Sort of. You would think, though, that they would TRY to inject some reality into their odds because they’re likely going to get hosed on finale night unless Antonio does pull out a win – and that is NOT a sure thing anymore. I have to agree with Courtney’s tiers – ole Antonio has some serious competition from Wanya and Nyle and some of the other competitors are no slouches either. We’ll know more after this week, since they have far less time to prepare – but if  Sharna and Val don’t step up the choreo, they could find themselves seriously outclassed. And, therefore, on the losing end of this season.

So, after taking a look from two different sources, do the odds makers have it right or wrong? Which set do you agree with more? Let us know in comments while the Angels weigh in below.

Vogue: Wow, it’s always interesting to read the first set of odds every season for Dancing With The Stars. If I had to choose which set of odds I agreed with more, I think it would be from the second source as I can’t imagine Ginger Zee or Jodi Sweetin taking last and getting eliminated so soon like the first set of odds say. It’s interesting too how one source puts Geraldo so high and the other so low. I’m also shocked one source has Wanya Morris winning and the other source has Jodi Sweetin winning. Well, one thing is sure, this season is a mix up of characters and talent and hard to predict. Next Monday night can’t come soon enough.

Courtney: Hmmmm…are the folks at Sports Bovada high or just not very well-informed? 🙂 As much as I’d like to see Wanya win this, I daresay he’s gonna have an uphill battle against the likes of Antonio, Jodie, Ginger, & Paige.  I’d say the second set of odds is mostly right, although I’d probably switch Doug & Mischa and Antonio & Jodie.  Unfortunately, I don’t have a whole lot more to add – just eager to see how things shake out after night 1, when we have a clearer picture of how good everyone is (or isn’t).

Heidi: They’re high, Courtney. 🙂 Seriously, they have two women with dance experience at the very bottom? In what universe does Jodie get beaten out by the likes of Geraldo (to name just one). No clue what’s going on there except I think they have every single placement wrong – I don’t see one that is likely to be correct except maybe Paige. They clearly did no research at all. The second group, on the other hand, has done a much more realistic job – I would put Geraldo at the bottom. I think their top four has a reasonable chance, except for Paige who’s early-ish elimination seems somewhat likely. I also don’t think Jodie should be in the number 1 spot, but then none of the odds makers ever seem to take into account the pro that’s dancing with the Celeb – to their detriment.

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. 😀
