There are some glaring differences between the betting odds for Season 13 of "Dancing with the Stars," according to the lines posted by the Wynn Las Vegas sportsbook and international online betting Web site Bodog.

The most glaring difference? That's easy. Just take a look at the two sets of odds on Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis and partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy, who is making his "DWTS" series debut as a professional.

Bodog has Canalis and Chmerkovskiy listed as its 5-1 favorites to win the series, which is stark contrast to odssmaker Johnny Avello of Wynn Las Vegas, who has the pair currently listed as the eighth choice at 15-1.

Actor J.R. Martinez and professional partner Karina Smirnoff also saw a wide gap in their odds, coming in as the 4-1 favorites with the Wynn, while sharing 10-1 odds with three other couples on Bodog as the seventh choice.

Hope Solo and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, listed as the fifth betting choice at 10-1 for Season 13, are a close second choice to Canalis and her Chmerkovskiy partner at 5-1 odds to win the Mirror Ball trophy.

Singer Chynna Phillips also saw a big improvement in her 20-1 odds posted at the Wynn, which put her as the ninth betting chouce. Phillips and pro partner Tony Dovolani opened at 8-1, good enough for a spot in the top six of Bodog's odds.
