2012 Olympics Track Betting Odds

Filed under: Other Sports Odds |

We have reached the second half of the 2012 Olympics, with the nights in the aquatic center closed, and the track and field events opening up. We have already seen many exciting track and field events, highlighted by Usain Bolt defending his 100m gold from Beijing. But in the final week of the 2012 Olympics from London, there are still plenty of exciting events and medals to be won.

The battle for the overall medal race is between the United States and China, with every day these two countries trading off and on the battle at the top. But the edge in track and field certainly goes to the United States, who have many more top favorites than China.

Betting Odds for the remaining events in the 2012 Olympics continue to be formed.

And just like in the pool where the United States dominates in relays, it appears that will be the case on the track.

Olympics Track Betting Odds available at Bovada Sportsbook have set the United States with a special betting line for the men’s and women’s 4x400m relay. Both of the men’s and women’s team are heavily favored to win gold, but Bovada has also set down a betting line for both of these teams to win gold. To win the betting line, they will each have to come home with the gold medal. but the payout is surprisingly in favor that the two teams won’t both win, despite the fact that they are both favored. That extra added variable has tipped the scale, though the payouts are quite similar at -110 that they will and -130 that they won’t.

Then let’s not forget that there is also the 200m men’s event left for Bolt, who also won gold in Beijing. Bolt would be the first Olympian ever to repeat both the 100m and 200m, which would further cement his mark on the sport. But he still has to deal with teammate Yohan Blake, who defeated Bolt in the 2011 World championships and then took the silver medal in the 100m last night.

Listed below are the complete set of betting odds for the track events at the 2012 Olympics, so be sure to check them out and see what is on the schedule as we enter the second week of the games.
