Actress Mischa Barton‘s ouster left a three-way tie for last place on the judges’ leaderboard: NFL stars Antonio Brown, Von Miller and Flutie all scored 20 out of 30. But that was only five points shy of Nyle DiMarco‘s first place marks, so with the judges’ scores so close, this week’s elimination may be decided by which stars were best able to inspire their fans to vote.
Our readers are pretty confident that Flutie will be sent home. He gets 2/3 odds (59% chance of elimination) according to our predictions. Even though their scores were tied, his fellow footballers appear to be safe: Miller gets 40/1 odds (3% chance), while Brown gets 80/1 odds (1% chance).
Flutie is also overwhelmingly predicted to get the lowest score of the night with 2/7 odds (78% chance of landing at the bottom).
But actress Marla Maples shouldn’t get too comfortable. The judges gave her 21 points, just one more than the trio of last-place scorers, so she may be vulnerable as well; she gets 14/5 odds (26% chance of elimination).
As for who will win the Mirror Ball Trophy at the end of the season, model DiMarco is still at the top of our predictions after getting the highest score of the season so far last week.. He now gets 5/6 odds (54% chance of winning), which is up from last week when he had 13/10 odds (43% chance of winning). Still ranked second is UFC fighter Paige VanZant, though she’s down a bit with 13/2 odds and a 13% chance to win (last week she had 9/2 odds and 18% chance to win).
Boyz II Men singer Wanya Morris holds onto third place, though he also dips slightly with 17/2 odds and an 11% chance of winning the Mirror Ball (down from 9/2 odds and an 18% chance last week).

Though DiMarco is the current favorite to win it all, he’s not the star we’re predicting to get the highest score this week. Instead, VanZant is forecast to come out on top. She gets 6/5 odds (46% chance of the high score), followed by DiMarco (14/5 odds, 26% chance) and Morris (6/1 odds, 14% chance).
But if you’d like even more input before finalizing your own predictions for tonight, you might consider the users who scored 100% predicting last week’s results. Of those, Ldm2006 had the highest points total due to his savvy betting, and he also rose to the top of our overall leaderboard for season 22 of “DWTS,” scoring 83% accuracy after three weeks (10 out of 12 correct predictions). This week he agrees with the consensus that Flutie will get the low score and be eliminated, but he disagrees about the top scorer: he’s betting on Morris instead of VanZant.
So when making your own predictions, will it prove wise to back the favorites, or should you go out on a limb to forecast a surprise?
In our “Dancing with the Stars” predictions center, you get to answer the following questions before each episode airs on ABC every Monday at 5 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. ET.:
Who will win ‘Dancing with the Stars’?
Which star will be eliminated?
Who will receive the judges’ HIGHEST score?
Who will receive the judges’ LOWEST score?
How many 10s will the judges give out?
At the end of each week, the eligible user with the highest prediction accuracy and most points will be the leaderboard champ for the week, so it’s beneficial to keep coming back often and making/updating your predictions.
Remember that coming out on top doesn’t just mean answering that week’s questions correctly. You also have to use your three big bets (500 points and two of 200 points) strategically to score the most game points. If you bet on a longshot who pulls off an upset, you can really rack up the points, so don’t take them for granted.
