Olympic Odds


During last night's Hawks/Nucks game the text poll question was about which country would win the Olympic hockey gold and the early returns among Hawks fans (I didn't see the final results) had about 70% of the respondents picking the USA.  While I admire the patriotism of Hawks fans (see 1991 All-Star game) and I'm very much looking forward to seeing Patrick Kane skate circles around chumps like Seabrook and Keith, realistically the US is probably an underdog to win gold.


... full odds after the jump

While the US has a decent chance to win a medal the odds on favorite has to be the home town hosers.  Team Canada probably has the most depth and is skating on home ice.  I looked around a bit at the online sports betting sites to see what the odds look like, and only a few have odds posted.  Bodog and World Sports Exhange don't have any lines that I could find.  Here's what Sportsbook.com and BETUS.com have:

Sportsbook.com:
1:2 Canada
2:1 - Russia
6:1 - Sweeden
6:1 - United States
12:1 - Czech Republic
18:1 - Finland
40:1 - Slovakia

BETUS.com:
1:2 - Canada
2:1 - Russia
5:1 - Sweeden
7:1 - United States
10:1 - Czech Republic
18:1 - Finland
40:1 - Slovakia

And of course there's the exotic wager that I'm personally offering odds on:

1:infinity - odds that the Canadian fans will be completely fucking unbearable
