Olympic Basketball Odds: USA Chalk

The Dream Team of 1992 was considered the best team of all time but the Olympic basketball odds on this year’s edition of the US team are even more prohibitive.

The roster of NBA stars is a 1/8 favorite, meaning you have to bet $8 to turn a $1 profit. That is a huge number, but if you think it’s money in the bank it could be worth a wager.

Spain is the only other sensible choice and they are 13/2 at Bovada as of this week. That online sportsbook posted odds on whether those countries would meet in the Olympic Final and it was a 4/5 favorite position.

France and Argentina are the next choices, a distant 28/1. There are props on the average margin of victory in Team USA’s games (over under of 25.5 points) and props on Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, and Kobe Bryant.

There is even a fun historical prop and you can bet whether Chris Paul will have more assists at the London Olympics than Magic Johnson did at the Barcelona Olympics.
