Dancing With The Stars Season 13 Betting Odds

Dancing With The Stars Season 13 betting odds are now available at Sportsbook.com, which awards over $50 million in prizes and bonuses yearly

This could prove to be one of the most watched and wagered on seasons of Dancing With The Stars ever due to the controversial casting that includes the likes of Nancy Grace, Chaz Bono and Ron Artest. 

“There is actually no clear cut favorite,” Gambling911.com entertainment reporter, Jordan Bach, noted on Monday. 

A record four contestants are each with 3/1 or +300 odds kicking off the Dancing With The Stars betting season at Sportsbook.com.  Hope Solo, JR Martinez, Elisabetta Canalis and Ricki Lake were each listed as the co-favorites at 3/1 odds. 

Nancy Grace and Chaz Bono were both long shots, but Gambling911.com’s own Jordan Bach warned readers and bettors alike to be very careful counting either of these two out. 

“Nancy Grace has her own television platform and a significant following on HLN,” said Bach.

Gambling911.com resident transgender reporter, Sparky Collins, who has been on a rather long hiatus, has his money on Chaz Bono.

“The LGBT community will be backing Chaz aggressively,” he points out.  “You will see him getting a lot of support here.”

Likewise, Bono’s mom enjoys a strong fan base.  Whether that translates into support for her daughter-turned-son remains to be seen.

Cher is rumored to be making at least one appearance on the popular dance competition this season and she has asked her fan base to support him.

“I don’t think it’s so much the issue of Chaz being transgender as it is about the athletic conditioning of these contestants,” remarked Gambling911.com’s own Payton O’Brien.  “The oddsmakers have a tendency to assign the shortest odds to the skinniest or more muscular of the dancers.”

That said, NBA star Ron Artest has appeared in promos for the show ripping his shirt off to reveal his chiseled chest and abs, yet he is listed with double digits of 10/1

 

Carson Kressley +1000 (a $100 bet pays $1000)

Chaz Bono +3000

Chynna Phillips +1000

David Arquette +800

Elisabetta Canalis +300

Hope Solo +300

JR Martinez +300

Kristin Cavallari +500

Nancy Grace +3000

Ricki Lake +300

Rob Kardashian +800

Ron Artest +1000
