Beach volleyball has become one of the more exciting spectator sports at the Olympics since it was included as a demonstration event in 1992. There are only Men`s and Women`s beach volleyball tournaments, so there will be 2 gold medals up for grabs in this event at London 2012. The Americans have done very well since the 1996 games, winning 5 of the 8 gold medals given out, including both the Men’s and Women’s events in Beijing.
The best place to bet on the 2012 Olympics Beach Volleyball tournaments is at Bovada.lv if you are from the United States and Bet365.com if you reside elsewhere. Each of these bookies offers a ton of Olympics betting options and each are highly regarded in the industry.

Bet365.com is also taking bets on every individual beach volleyball match at these Olympics. You can place wagers on the winner of the match, the first set winner and over/under on the total points in the match.
Bet365.com is a great spectator sport and having a wager on the match makes the points that much more exciting. It’s also true that the oddsmakers don’t have as much knowledge on beach volleyball so it may be possible to find some sharp bets throughout the tournament.
How To Bet
The first step to placing a bet on the 2012 Summer Olympics Beach Volleyball tournaments is to open an online betting account. I recommend Bet365.com (Bovada.lv for Americans) because they offer a wide variety of beach volleyball odds and offer bets on every Olympics sport. Many other online bookies aren’t taking bets on every Olymipcs sport because they don’t feel that they have enough knowledge to break even with their lines on the event. Click here to visit Bet365.com and open an account.
Next you should make a deposit using one of the many banking options available at Bet365.com.
You will find the beach volleyball odds under the Olympics 2012 tab at Bet365.com. Then scroll down to beach volleyball to place your bets. Keep up with the tournament and all of the matches at the official Olympics website.
This is going to be an exciting couple weeks and I for one will be watching a lot of beach volleyball.
