derek hough shawn johnson dwts 'Dancing With the Stars' odds: All Stars Shawn Johnson, Apolo Anton Ohno and Emmitt Smith favored to win“Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars” has been wildly unpredictable (see: Bristol Palin), but that hasn’t stopped the bookmakers from laying down the odds and taking your money.

Of the nine couples currently competing, Season 8 champ Shawn Johnson is pegged by Bovada as the 7/4 favorite to win. The fact that the judges praised her and partner Derek Hough‘s quickstep as the best dance in the history of “DWTS” certainly didn’t hurt their rankings.

Olympic speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno comes in second at 9/4, followed by Emmitt Smith (7/2) and Gilles Marini (7/1), even though all are averaging middle-of-the pack scores from the judges.

In recent weeks, Helio Castroneves, eliminated this past Tuesday, was named as the odds-on favorite, with fellow eliminees Drew Lachey and Joey Fatone not far behind, proving that this contest is anyone’s game.

The exception? Bristol Palin, consistently placed in the bottom group by oddsmakers and the “DWTS” judges –although fan voting may keep her and partner Mark Ballas on the dance floor until the final weeks.
