The Dancing with the Stars 2017 Season 24 cast returns to the ballroom tonight as week two action is ready to go down! This is the where the rubber hits the road as Dancing with the Stars fans will find out who will be the first to be sent home in Season 24.
While anything can happen on DWTS, the one thing that seems to be pretty much set in stone is that it won’t be Simone and Sasha or Rashad and Emma.
According to an ET report, Olympic gymnast Simone Biles and Sasha Farber capped the night of DWTS dancing with a tango that left the judges and the crowd in a frenzy! “Wowzer!” summed up Judge Carrie Ann Inaba, adding, “You are the power couple,” and Len said there was a great balance between performance and dance content. “It was crisp, clean, the dance of the night!” Simone jokingly said that she was channeling her Olympic teammate Laurie Hernandez, who just so happens to be the Dancing with the Stars Season 23 champion.
Simone and Sasha had the best score of the night in Week 1, netting 32 out of a possible 40 points. That score shouldn’t surprise DWTS fans, and it certainly didn’t surprise Las Vegas odds makers. Vegas installed Biles as the favorite to win Season 24 of Dancing with the Stars even before the premiere.

Now what may surprise many is how great several of the big underdogs did in Week 1, especially Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater. The free agent running back dazzled with Stone during their cha-cha number and showed they could easily be one of the new couples to look at as the possible champions of this season.
Jennings was listed amongst the middle of the pack when it came to favorites to win Dancing with the Stars season 24 at +1400. However, after just one performance his odds have jumped up to +1000.
Another big underdog who surprised the judges after her debut performance was former figure skater Nancy Kerrigan. Former Olympian figure skater Kerrigan and her partner Artem Chigvintsev finished in a three-way tie for third place with a total of 28 points. Kerrigan also had odds makers adjusting her odds to win the Dancing with the Stars ballroom trophy as Kerrigan opened at +1000, but now is down +800.
So who will be the casualty of Dancing with the Stars Week 2?
This is one prop bet you do not want to be favored in! Unfortunately, that honor belongs to Chris Kattan and Mr. T.
Sports Betting Experts indicates that Kattan is listed at +750, while Mr. T is set at +1250. Both Kattan and Mr. T finished at the bottom of the points list for Week 1 and will need a small miracle to make it into the following week of action.
All of the Dancing with the Stars action for Week 2 can be seen tonight live nationally on ABC starting at 8 p.m. ET. You can also watch every dance move through your tablet or smartphone or other handheld device streaming live through the ABC Go app.
