"Dancing with the Stars" 2014 resumes March 24 on ABC with a second week of performances by the all-new cast of mirror ball trophy hopefuls. With one week of judges' scores in the books, Bovada Sportsbook updated their betting odds hours before the live broadcast with rankings that favor not just one but two different celebrities.

Appropriately tied at the top of the heap with 5/2 odds of winning "DWTS" season 18 are Olympic gold medalists Charlie White and Meryl Davis, who won the nation's first-ever ice dancing Winter Games title in Sochi. According to information released by show co-hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews at the close of the March 17 premiere, Davis and pro partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy will perform a swing dance during week two, while White will tango with partner Sharna Burgess.

Ranked third with 4/1 odds is 2014 Paralympic bronze medalist Amy Purdy, who is scheduled to swing dance with Derek Hough, while "Full House" actress Candace Cameron Bure is in fourth place with 11/2 odds. Cameron Bure, who impressed with her week one contemporary routine with Mark Ballas, is slated to perform a March 24 rumba.

Fifth place belongs to "The Wonder Years" alum Danica McKellar, who brings 15/2 odds of winning the season with partner Val Chmerkovskiy to her week two samba. "Big Time Rush" star James Maslow, who is paired up with Peta Murgatroyd and is scheduled to dance a salsa, follows in the six spot with 10/1 odds.

Australian pop star Cody Simpson is ranked seventh with 20/1 odds of victory. He and pro partner Witney Carson are planning a tango for week two. Another two stars, "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star NeNe Leakes and comedian Drew Carey, are tied for eighth place with 25/1 odds. Both Leakes and Tony Dovolani and Carey and Cheryl Burke will offer up jives for judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, and Bruno Tonioli's consideration.

Tenth place belongs to former NHL star Sean Avery, who will dance a salsa with pro partner Karina Smirnoff, while the last two celebs on the roster are tied for long-shot status with 100/1 odds each. Included in the ranks are "Star Wars" actor Billy Dee Williams, who will tango with Emma Slater, and long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad, who is scheduled to cha cha alongside Henry Byalikov.

"Dancing with the Stars" 2014 resumes March 24 on ABC with week two of the hit reality show's new season.
