With two eliminations out of this way, Tinashe is the betting favorite to win Season 27 of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars with chances of +350. Tinashe (complete name Tinashe Jorgensen Kacheingwe) is a 25-year-old native of Kentucky who is best known for her singing roles with The Stunners and as a solo act.
She has collaborated with artists such as Calvin Harris and Travis Scott and is paired with Brandon Armstrong on the show. She may have a leg up on the competition — Tinashe started training as a dancer at age four and the few gets the greatest average score through two weeks.
Di Pace & Manheim are a Close Second
Juan Pablo Di Pace (Fuller House, Mamma Mia) and 17-year-old Milo Manheim, by the Disney Channel original film”Zombies,” equally have +375 odds to win the 27th season of the wildly popular dancing series.
Tinashe, Di Pace and Manheim all received scores of 26 on both numbers in Week two of the series, setting up a pivotal Week 3 (October 8) to determine if any of the pairs can separate themselves from the competition. It is anticipated that Tinashe and Brandon will dance the Rumba, Juan Pablo and Cheryl Burke will dance the Samba, and Milo and Witney Carson will dance the Jive.
Usually Reliable Trainers Are In The Middle of the Pack
While athletes have traditionally had hit the series, former NFL linebacker DeMarcus Ware and Olympian Mary Lou Retton are still sitting at +800 and +1100 respectively to be crowned winner.
Ware retired in the NFL after 12 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos in the end of this 2016 season. Retton is famous for her five awards at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, such as all-around gold, in the gymnastics competition.
Who is in Trouble?
John Schneider, of Dukes of Hazzard fame, and his spouse Emma Slater were the last to be called safe in Week 2 and they’ve chances of +1500 to be the winners at the end of the show. So it doesn’t look like the smart money is about Bo Duke this year, despite his glorious hair.
The maximum odds after Week 2 belong to Joe Amabile and final season’s winning skilled dancer, Jenna Johnson (+4000). In fact, there’s only been one professional to acquire in back-to-back seasons: Derek Hough in Season 10 and 11.
