Usian Bolt Sets Out To Mine More Olympic Gold

Three time Olympic gold medalist, not to mention five time World Champion sprinter, Usain Bolt is preparing for another medal haul during the Olympiad in London. Bolt is the current World and Olympic record holder in the 100 and 200 metres dash, as well as the men’s 4 x 100 metres relay along with his Jamaican running mates. A refreshing face in the prima donna world of sprinting, Bolt is the overwhelming favorite (1.40) over fellow Jamaican Yohan Blake at 4.50 0dds. We certainly won’t be betting against the human lightning bolt.

Medal Total By Country Odds Highlights Olympic Team Wagering

When it comes to overall total medal counts, at the XXX Olympiad in London, most bookmakers see it as a two country race. The United States and China, who are always perennial powers at the Olympics, are the favorites as the USA comes with a 1.50 price, while China is a close second chalk with a 2.20 line. Prices jump considerably after that as host country Great Britain and Russia are tied as the third favorites at 41.00 odds. Germany, at 151.00, rounds out the top five. We’ll be wagering on China on this Olympic prop bet.

USA Dream Team: Huge Favorites In Olympic Basketball With 1.21 Odds

A little over a month after they battled each other for the 2012 Finals Championship, NBA stars will come together as a team when they shoot for Olympic gold. Hoop stars such as LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh of the NBA Champion Miami Heat, along with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook from the runner up Oklahoma City Thunder, are all part of the USA Dream Team. If that’s not impressive enough, let’s throw in Kobe Bryant from the LA Lakers, as well as Chris Paul and Blake Griffin from the LA Clippers. Wow!

If we had a farm, we would bet it on the USA Olympic basketball team to take home a gold medal. That said, it doesn’t matter what sport you follow. If it’s playing out at the Summer Games in London, the top rated online sportsbooks at SportsBettingReviews.ca will offer odds on it. Open an Olympic sports betting account today!
