After six weeks of “Dancing With the Stars” predictions, two of our contest entrants are tied at the top of our leaderboard with 12 out of 18 correct (67%): WiltedYouth and Denton Davidson. Will this pair still be in the lead after Monday night’s results? (Click here to see our complete predictions leaderboard.)
As of this writing, Denton is going against our predictions consensus when it comes to who will be eliminated: he thinks it will be Alexa PenaVega. Only 14% of our readers are betting on that result (6/1 odds), compared to 42% who think Alek Skarlatos will get the boot (7/5 odds). Both PenaVega and Skarlatos tied at the bottom of the judges’ leaderboard.
Denton is also going against the grain to predict that boy band member Nick Carter will get the night’s highest score. Only 12% of our prediction contest players are making that forecast (7/1 odds). The majority (57%) think mirror ball trophy frontrunner Bindi Irwin will come out on top for the fifth time this season (8/11 odds).
But Denton is part of the majority (52%) who say Skarlatos will get the night’s lowest score from judges (10/11 odds). (WiltedYouth had not entered predictions as of early Monday morning).
Also making predictions for Monday night is Cordell Martin, who had the top score predicting the results of last week’s “Famous Dances Night” and ranks sixth on our leaderboard for the season to date. He’s going out on a limb betting that social media star Hayes Grier will be eliminated. He also agrees with Denton that Carter will get the high score, but he says singer Andy Grammer will get the low score despite getting a perfect 40 out of 40 last week.
One or two surprises might be all it takes to dramatically shake up our predictions contest leaderboard. The battle to win our contest may turn out to be just as dramatic as the fight for the mirror ball trophy. The winner of this season’s contest will receive a $100 Amazon gift certificate. We’re also giving $100 for getting the top score in each week’s predictions, provided you qualify according to our contest rules.
