Norm and Shane joint favourites for Dancing with the Stars title

Australian bookmaker Centrebet cannot split former All Blacks hooker Norm Hewitt and ex-Shortland Street star Shane Cortese at the top of its Dancing with the Stars betting market.

Hewitt (2.25 from 2.40) and Cortese (2.25 from 2.60) are Centrebet's joint favourites to win the show. Tim Shadbolt (6.00 from 34.00) and Bernice Mene (9.00 from 15.00) are its outsiders.

New Zealand did not send a delegate to this year's Miss Universe beauty pageant in Thailand. Canadian model Natalie Glebova (7.00) is Centrebet's favourite to succeed Jennifer Hawkins.

The British and Irish Lions tour of New Zealand gets under way this week. Punters cannot get enough of the All Blacks at 1.47 to win the Test series and 3.10 to win all three big matches.
