Oddsmakers have updated lines for #DWTS Episode 2. Full list and analysis

Olympic champion Simone Biles is the preseason favorite to take the ‘DWTS’ season 24

Oddsmakers have updated lines for #DWTS Episode 2. Full list and analysis below.

Simone Biles and partner Sasha Farber were on top of the field in the Season 24 Premiere — the duo scored 32 points giving them the best score of the week and cashing tickets in that prop bet category as a -175 favorite.

Biles is now an overwhelming “favorite” to win it all this season at -275 (bet $275 to profit $100).

Can Chris KattanMr. TCharo or Erika Jayne turn it around and somehow win season 24? Each has odds set at “+5000” which means a bettor would profit $5,000 on a $100 bet!

David Ross does not fare much better with odds at +4500 to win it all.

The odds were set by 25+ year veteran oddsmaker, sports book consultant and handicapping theorist Jim Murphy (bio below, available for comment) who specializes in sports, entertainment and political novelty betting.

Not familiar with the betting lingo? A negative number (typically represents the “Favorite”) = how much you have to bet to profit $100. A positive number = how much you profit if you bet $100.

‘Dancing with the Stars’ Season 24 Episode 2 Betting Odds and Analysis

Sourcehttp://www.sportsbettingexperts.com/dancing-with-the-stars-season-24-episode-2-betting-odds/

–This is the 24th season for ABC’s reality show.

–Ratings were marginally better than last season.

–’Dancing With The Stars Episode 2 airs on Monday, March 27 at 8:00 PM Eastern.

Simone Biles and her Russian born partner Sasha Farber were on top of the field in the Season 24 Premiere of ‘Dancing With The Stars’. They duo scored 32 points giving them the best score of the week and cashing tickets in that prop bet category as a -175 favorite. The strong performance of Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater was a mild surprise–they finished 1 point behind Biles/Sasha with 31 points.

As Jennings was the third overall choice to win Season 24 it can’t be seen as a massive upset. Second betting choice for both the season and Week 1, Heather Morris with partner Maksim ‘Maks’ Chmerkovskiy finished with a solid though not spectacular 28 points. A bigger surprise might have been former MLB catcher David Ross who put up a strong 28 with partner Lindsay Arnold. Ross had the second longest odds to win Season 24 before the first episode just ahead of Chris Kattan.

At the other end of the spectrum the hapless Kattan was partnered with the comely Witney Carson but the 23 year old native of American Fork, Utah couldn’t help the lead footed comic. The pair finished well off the pace with 17 points for the *worst* score of week one. Kattan was a -250 chalk to achieve that dubious status. None of the other contestants finished with fewer than 20 points:

WEEK ONE DWTS SCORING CHARTS:

Simone Biles/Sasha Farber: 32
Rashad Jennings/Emma Slater: 31
Heather Morris/Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 28
Nancy Kerrigan/Artem Chigvinstev: 28
David Ross/Lindsay Arnold: 28
Normani Kordei/Valentin Chmerkovskiy: 27

Chris Kattan/Witney Carson: 17

In other betting propositions there were no ’10’ scores awarded in Week 1 (-450) and no one was eliminated (-350) giving the favorite the victory in all four dancing categories. In the TV ratings props DWTS Episode 1 finished with a 2.1 rating and a 7 share in their key 18-49 demographic and 12.09 viewers. That sent the ‘ratings’ and ‘share’ props ‘Over’ the total with the total viewership not able to make it past the 12.5 total and finishing ‘Under’.

Posted below you’ll find a revised ‘To Win Season 24’ odds rundown along with the same prop bets we posted last week. The ratings/share/viewers prop is back as well though it’s been adjusted downward to reflect the expected drop off from Episode 1 to Episode 2. ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Season 24 Episode 2 airs at 8:00 PM EDT on Monday, March 27.
