Betting on the Olympics has grown from a passing fancy to a major business for online sportsbooks who tap into the power of sport and national pride to provide a great product offering. Whether its Olympic hockey odds for the 2014 Sochi Olympics or Summer Olympics betting on marquee events like the 100-metre dash, fans dig into the betting lines and back their favorites.
Winter Olympics odds focus on mens hockey where the defending champion Canadians are favored slightly over the host Russians. Figure skating odds, which country will win the medal race, how many gold medals will the USA Olympic team win and more fun props are included in the wagering menu at most of the top online sportsbooks monitored here by Odds Shark.
So check back daily during the Games for updates on the latest Olympic odds for events happening that day. Tournaments like mens and womens hockey and curling will have ongoing updates to odds as those events progress through the week.
So good luck to the athletes in Sochi in 2014 and summer Olympians in 2016 and good luck to the fans and bettors who put some money behind those athletes.
