What are the odds your favorite dog breed will win Westminster?

Slim... unless you're hot on the standard poodle

For 22 years, Labrador retrievers have been America's most popular dog breed. But being adored by the unwashed masses isn't enough to earn those lovable pups the top prize at the high-falutin' Westminster Dog Show. In all of its 136 years, Westminster has never awarded a Lab the coveted Best in Show honor. So if you're a dog-loving gambler, you'll want to steer clear of those big, happy people-pleasers and set your sights on the Doberman Pinscher. While the Doberman isn't one of America's most popular breeds (it's number 12), the intelligent and loyal dog has the best odds — 7-to-1, according to Wynn Las Vegas — of winning Best in Show at the Westminster event being held this week in New York City. Here, for all you dog show gambling enthusiasts, a rundown of the odds on America's 10 most popular dog breeds:
