The "Dancing with the Stars" fall 2013 edition premieres Sept. 16 on ABC with an all-new cast of celebrity mirror ball trophy hopefuls. According to preseason betting odds posted to Bovada Sportsbook on Sept. 12, "High School Musical" alum Corbin Bleu is the contestant to beat, but he won't just sail to victory.
Bleu, who will perform with "DWTS" season 13 pro champ Karina Smirnoff, holds an early edge with 5/2 odds of victory. Ranked second with 13/4 odds is "The Voice" social media correspondent and singer Christina Milian. The 31-year old mom of one is matched up with two-time show winner Mark Ballas.
Tied in the three-spot with 11/2 odds are a pair of actresses. "Glee" alum Amber Riley will work with four-time "DWTS" pro victor Derek Hough, while "Saved by the Bell" actress Elizabeth Berkley will strut her stuff alongside season 16 runner-up Val Chmerkovskiy.
Ranked fifth with a 7/1 shot is "King of Queens" star and former Scientologist Leah Remini, who will dance with "DWTS" nice guy and all-star season champion Tony Dovolani. On Remini's heels with 8/1 odds of her own is Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, who was featured on MTV's popular reality series "Jersey Shore." Snooki will dance with former troupe member Sasha Farber.
"Pretty Little Liars" actor Brant Daugherty and former NFL star Keyshawn Johnson are tied for seventh place with 10/1 odds. Daugherty is matched up with season 14 winner Peta Murgatroyd, while Johnson will hoof it with Sharna Burgess, who made her pro debut during season 16 via a memorable turn in the ballroom with comedian Andy Dick.
Ranked alone in ninth place with odds of 25/1 is reality star Jack Osbourne, who will work with long-time "DWTS" pro Cheryl Burke, who won seasons two and three. Osbourne's sister Kelly finished season nine in third place with partner Louis Van Amstel and earned acclaim for pulling off one of the biggest transformations in show history.
The final trio of contestants claim the distinction of being the biggest preseason long-shots, as each enters the competition with 50/1 odds of emerging victorious. Included is comedian Bill Engvall, who will dance with new pro Emma Slater; science educator Bill Nye, who is paired up with "DWTS" newcomer Tyne Stecklein; and "Rhoda" actress Valerie Harper, who will take to the ballroom with Irish hunk Tristan MacManus.
