An international TV sensation with versions in different countries, "Dancing" is set to make its third U.S. season premiere Tuesday and the 32-year-old Lopez has been named the favorite to win this season, PinnacleSports.com said in a news release.

The entertainment betting service has placed Lopez's odds at victory this season at 3-to-1, followed closely by fellow acting contestants Vivica A. Fox and Monique Coleman at 4-to-1 and 9-to-2, respectively.

While PinnacleSports.com has tabbed MSNBC news anchor Tucker Carlson and former Miss USA Shanna Moakler as long-shots for victory at 23-to-1 each, the betting agency gave bottom honors to talk show host Jerry Springer at 49-to-1.

Actor Joey Lawrence came in at 6-to-1, former "L.A. Law" star Harry Hamlin was given 13-to-2 odds, rocker Willa Ford was awarded a 9-to-1 chance, country singer Sara Evans, 10-to-1, and NFL great Emmitt Smith, 14-to-1.

Last season, online oddsmakers had named Stacy Keibler, who eventually finished third, as the pre-season favorite to win last winter's second edition of "Dancing with the Stars."
