The 2012 Olympic Summer Games are just around the corner in London and one of the bigger events for Women will be the Women’s Basketball event. The USA has dominated Women’s basketball at the Summer Olympics over the past years, winning the last 4 Olympics by large margins. The Australia team finished second in the last 3 Summer Olympics, but they were never close to the Americans in the finals.
The best place to bet on the 2012 Olympics Women’s Basketball winner and individual games is Bovada.lv. Bovada has a bunch of Olympics odds already up and they are one of the most trusted sportsbooks online. They only accept Americans though, so if you are from outside of the United States I suggest signing up at their sister site, Bodog.eu.
2012 Olympics Women’s Basketball Winner Odds
Here are the odds for the tournament winner found at Bovada.lv:
- USA 1/10
- Australia 7/1
- Russia 8/1
- France 25/1
- Czech Republic 66/1
- Turkey 80/1
There are the 6 teams with shorter than 100/1 odds. As you can see the Americans are huge favorites and the only teams being given any real shot of dethroning them are the Australians or Russians (Australia came 2nd last 3 Olympics and Russia came 3rd last 2).
You will also be able to bet on every game throughout the Olympics tournament at Bovada.lv. It will be interesting to see the spreads for the USA games considering they won every Gold Medal game in the past 3 Olympics by more than 10 points, including a 27 point victory last Olympics.
