London Summer Olympics Betting Odds

Are the Americans primed for a gold-medal comeback at the London Olympics? The online sportsbooks have Team USA pegged as the favorite on the betting odds to win the most gold medals at the Summer Games, with events getting underway in earnest on Saturday in England.

The United States is listed as the -175 favorite at Bovada to return home from England with the most gold medals this summer, while the rival Chinese team is second at +140 on that odds list.

China dominated at the Olympics they hosted in Beijing back in 2008, topping the United States 51-36 on the gold medal board at those Games. The USA had edged China 35-32 in gold medals at the 2004 Summer Games in Athens.

Like some longshot odds for London? The Russians are set +2500 odds to win the most gold medals at the Games, with the British team set at +3300. In 2008 in Beijing the Russian team managed to pick up 23 gold medals, with the British producing 19 gold medals.
