So which pair is most likely to take the title, and who should be ready for the heartbreak of an early exit? Bookmaker.eu posted full preseason odds on March 12.

'DWTS' 2016 odds: Jodie will be the sweetest

With field-best +465 odds, the preseason favorite to waltz away with the title is "Fuller House" actress Jodie Sweetin, who is paired up with Keo Motsepe.

The duo will christen their partnership with a tango during week one.

Tied for a second place ranking in the preseason "DWTS" odds list are "Good Morning America" weather anchor Ginger Zee and mixed martial artist Paige VanZant, who enter the competition with identical +570 odds. Zee and VanZant are matched up with season 20 champion Valentin Chmerkovskiy and two-time winner Mark Ballas, respectively.

Just a hair behind the two ladies with +580 odds is Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, who will dance alongside season 21 runner-up Sharna Burgess.

The long shot

Although several stars enjoy decentodds of taking the big win, just a single contestant holds the dubious distinction of being the clear long shot. The demarcation goes to 72-year old TV personality Geraldo Rivera, who holds field-worst odds of +3455 as of March 12.
