Olympic Sports Betting

     Olympic sports betting will include, as in Beijing, Olympic odds on many different sports including swimming, baseball, archery, etc. Olympic sportsbook wagering should be exciting this year with Olympic betting on a large number of the 28 sports in the games.

 
 

There will be a total of 165 men's events, 127 women's events and 10 mixed events.. Olympic sports wagering should also be popular on men's track and field where the men's 100 meter should get attention as always. Soccer is always a popular sport around the world in Olympic sport betting and that should be the case again with Olympic sports betting on the 2016 games that will take place in Rio de Janeiro.

Another popular wager at the Olympic sportsbook will be Olympic sports betting odds on the country to win the most medals. During the past games, China was a slight favorite over the United States in Olympic sports betting to finish with the most medals. Olympic sports betting will be popular all around the world, especially in the United States where people can watch hundreds of hours of coverage on NBC television. Anytime something is on television it is more popular in terms of gambling and that is the case with online betting lines for Olympics action. The summer Olympics don't have quite the appeal of the winter Olympics but basketball and soccer are always popular and once the tennis competitors are narrowed down to the final four that also gets exciting.

Online betting for Olympics action may be focused on popular events like the men's basketball and men's soccer, but don't forget about other gambling Olympic sports lines on events like tennis, baseball, steeplechase, handball, volleyball, etc. Check out all of the Olympic gambling online odds today.

Andy Murray Favorite at Olympics as Federer Pulls Out

Andy Murray favorite at 2016 Olympics Scottish Andy Murray has to believe that his Olympics betting odds have taken a turn for the better now that Swiss Roger Federer has pulled a Tiger Woods and announced he will miss the Rio Olympics – along with the remainder of the 2016 season – in order to properly and extensively rehab his torn meniscus following surgery earlier in the year. Federer’s absence should leave Murray sitting in the catbird seat as the Scotsman looks to win a second gold medal. As fans of Olympics betting might remember, and as fate would have it, Murray defeated Federer of all people in the finals of the men's singles tennis tournament at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

What Rio Summer Olympics might be like without Russia

2016 Rio Summer Olympics If Russian athletes were to be banned from the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympic games – as the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has suggested – that would considerably chance the landscape of the competition, including and not limited to sports betting. WADA has called for the ban as a result of a 103-page report from Canadian law professor Richard McLaren, who found evidence of systematic, state-supported cheating by Russia's athletes during the Sochi Winter Olympics. How would the Games be affected if the  International Olympic Committee heeded WADA’s recommendation? Let’s imagine an alternate reality in which Russia did not attend the 2012 London Olympics.

The NBA in Rio goes beyond the U.S.A. Basketball Team

U.S.A. basketball teamThe United States men's Olympic basketball team is as usual the online betting favorite to win the gold medal in the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games. Ever since NBA players first became eligible to play in Olympic basketball in Barcelona 1992 (the original, and to many, the only Dream Team), the US has won the Olympic tournament five out of six times – only coming up short in Athens 2004 where they won the bronze and Argentina won the gold. Most recently, American basketball prevailed in London 2012 with a team that included LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, Kobe Bryant, Andre Iguodala, and Kevil Love – all of whom will be absent this time around.
