The United States fell 3-2 to Canada in their preliminary round matchup, but easily handled Sweden 6-1 in the semifinals to advance to Thursday's final. Canada topped Switzerland 3-1 on the Olympic hockey betting lines in the semifinals to get a chance to defend their gold medal against the United States.


Olympic Medal Odds: USA tops the list

The United States won the overall medal race at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver back in 2010, and they're also listed as the favorite at the sportsbooks to pick up the most medals this month at the 2014 Games in Sochi.


USA Hoops big favorite for gold Sunday

The United States men's basketball team is once again listed as a big favorite on the odds at the sportsbooks as they get set to play against Spain in the gold medal game of the Olympic tournament on Sunday.

The Americans have won all seven of their games so far at the London Olympics, going a perfect 5-0 in the qualification round, getting past Australia 119-86 in the quarterfinals on Wednesday, and then beating Argentina 109-83 in the semifinals on Friday.


Usain Bolt 4x100m Men's Relay Odds

Usain Bolt has already run 100m for a gold medal once in London, and he'll be looking to do it again on the weekend as his Jamaican team races in the 4x100m relay as the favorite on the betting odds.

Bolt and the Jamaicans are pegged as the 4/11 favorite at Bovada to win the men's 4x100m heading into the qualification round of the event on Friday; the final is Saturday.


USA vs. Argentina Olympic Hoops Odds

After turning in a triple-double effort against Australia on Wednesday LeBron James will be looking to lead the USA to another hoops win on Friday as big betting favorites in the semifinals of the Olympic tournament against Argentina.

James picked up 11 points, 14 boards, and 11 assists in the Americans' 119-86 win in the quarterfinals of the event in London on Wednesday, advancing them to Friday's tipoff against Argentina (4:00pm ET).


USA big chalk in basketball quarters

After outscoring their opposition by almost 200 points in five qualification-round victories the United States will head into Wednesday's quarterfinal matchup against Australia as a big favorite on the Olympic basketball betting lines.

The Americans (mostly) ran roughshod over their opponents in Group A play at the men's basketball tournament, with only Lithuania giving them any sort of a scare in a contest that they ended up winning 99-94.


Usain Bolt betting continues with 200m

After electrifying London with a victory in the men's 100m race over the weekend Usain Bolt will return to the track on Tuesday to begin his quest for a gold medal in the men's 200m event.

Bolt ran an Olympic-record 9.629 in the men's 100m final, and he's listed as the 1/5 favorite on the track odds at Bovada to also win the gold in the men's 200m this week.

Bolt won the gold medal in the men's 200m race in Beijing in 2008, as well as at the World Championships in Berlin in 2009 and South Korea in 2011.


USA still favored in Olympic hoops

With the preliminary round of the Olympic men's basketball event about to be wrapped up the United States remains the big favorite at the sportsbooks to head home from London with the gold medal.

The Americans are undefeated at 4-0 through their first four games of the tournament, and they can run that record to 5-0 on Monday as they take on Argentina as a 23.5-point favorite on the basketball lines at Bovada.
