Ok, the all star edition starts on Sept 24th on ABC and Intertops has odds up to win.I noticed that only a few contestants are paired with their professional dancing partner from the first time they were on the show. This show as we all know is one big popularity contest, but you do have to have some talent.But I was thinking if you are a habitual voter and watcher of the show, then its just human nature to still like what you saw the last time.Also, having the same partner obviously as a dancer you have more confidence to make certain moves and routines right?? I think it is a distinct advantage. So what I am going to do is play a futures bet on all these.
And of course I could be talking out of my ass and just deluding myself into betting on this shit.My wife is going to watch it so why not have action?
Emmit Smith +350..Same partner of Cheryl Burke(won season #3)
Bristol Palin +2000..Same partner of Mark Ballas(3rd in season 11)
Joey Fatone +850..Same partner of Kym Johnson(2nd on season #4
Kirstie Alley +1400..Same Partner of Maskim Chmerkovsky(2nd on season #12)
Melissa Rycroft..+6600..Same partner of Tony Dovolani(3rd on season #8)
Maybe bet .25 units on Mellissa,Kirstie and Bristol and and go 1-2 units on Fatone.The price on smith you could larger on but I like big underdogs..The only all star that did not come in 1st-3rd is Pam Anderson, so you never know, all it takes is a few favs to go out early and if you have the longshots you have a decent shot!
Also Fatone had the #10 best overall avg score in the shows history,making that +850 look even better.

Also she does not have the same partner, but Kelly Monaco is +4000 to win, she is the first season winner.Maybe a side bet on her.Cant beat a former champ at this price.
