Dancing with the Stars betting for season 8 saw the youngest-ever champion as Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson took home the title.  The win by Johnson in Dancing with the Stars odds was a huge shock as Gilles Marini was heavily favored to win at the sportsbook.

Dancing with the Stars betting at the online sportsbook had favored Marini almost from the beginning so it was a major upset when Johnson took home the title.  Johnson and Marini had tied on the judge’s scorecards in the final round so the voters made the difference in the outcome of Dancing with the Stars betting.  According to host Tom Bergeron, there was less than a one percent difference in the votes garnered by Johnson and Marini, making for a very close result.

Dancing with the Stars betting at the sportsbook has had some upsets in the past in the finale but this may have been the biggest.  Not only did Johnson win the title in Dancing with the Stars odds, she vaulted from third to first.  Melissa Rycroft was actually given a better chance of upsetting Marini in Dancing with the Stars betting at the online sportsbook but she finished third.

Johnson is now the fifth athlete to win in Dancing with the Stars betting.  She joins Emmitt Smith won in season 3 of Dancing with the Stars betting, Apolo Anton Ohno who won in season 4 of Dancing with the Stars odds, Helio Castroneves who won in Season 5 and Kristi Yamaguchi who won in Season 6 of Dancing with the Stars betting.  The other winners in Dancing with the Stars betting history were Kelly Monaco in Season one, Drew Lachey in Season two and Brooke Burke in Season 7.

Dancing with the Stars odds for Season 8 were dominated by Marini but in the end it was the youngster Johnson coming from behind and winning in Dancing with the Stars betting. Unlike American Idol, Dancing with the Stars betting happens twice each year, so Season 9 is just around the corner in the fall.
