For the gambler in you (DWTS edition)

Occasionally in the offseason, we’ll take the best -- and most clever -- odds collected by Bovada and give our take. This is important stuff, perhaps the most important post you’ll read on this site. Because if you can’t lose money while watching a game in which you have absolutely no effect, what’s the point of watching sports at all?

With the news emerging today of Packers receiver Donald Driver participating in the latest version of “Dancing with the Stars,” that gives the fellas at Bovada the chance to regale you with the official odds of who will prevail.

Dancing With the Stars Season 14 -- odds to win

William Levy 4/1

Jaleel White 11/2

Gladys Knight 13/2

Donald Driver 13/2

Maria Menounos 7/1

Katherine Jenkins 15/2

Roshon Fegan  8/1

Gavin DeGraw 10/1

Sherri Shepherd 10/1

Jack Wagner 15/1

Melissa Gilbert 18/1

Martina Navratilova 20/1

Is it bad that I had to look up who William Levy is and why he’s the favorite to win DWTS? Well, considering he’s a “hot telenovela star,” points shouldn’t be taken away for not knowing him. I can see why White would be one of the top guys, but I’m not sure I get why Gladys Knight has the same odds as Driver. Unless her Pips are helping her along, I don’t see how a 67-year-old woman has the same chance to win as an NFL receiver.

Also, how is former tennis star Martina Navratilova the biggest underdog? Especially when you consider how many more Wimbledon titles she won than Melissa Gilbert (or the ENTIRE cast of “Little House on the Prairie” for that matter). That said, I’d go with Driver. Hell, he’s a pro athlete. He’s got as good a chance as anybody.
