Olympic Sports Betting
Olympic sports betting will include, as in Beijing, Olympic odds on many different sports including swimming, baseball, archery, etc. Olympic sport book 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 2012 games that will take place in London, England.
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.
You knew this wouldn't be pretty. Team USA entered this contest as 42.5 point favorites and somehow that didn't seem like enough. The over/under was 168.
When the game between Team USA and Nigeria mercifully came to an end the United States entry had nearly covered the O/U by themselves. They did "cover," to say the least, in their 156-73 demolition of Nigeria. They actually fell only two points shy of double covering.
Does Team USA Basketball really have to play all these games to be given the gold? Can't we just conduct the first ever gold medal presentation during the opening ceremonies? OK, I'm getting a little carried away being that even a 54 point win over the Dominican Republic does not warrant the gold quite yet, but stay tuned.
