The start of the 2012 latex coated 2012 summer Olympics is only 1 week away. ¬†While we are by no means Olympic specialists, we turn to others who might be to help determine betting value. ¬†Former USA Today columnist Beau Dure is in the process of projecting medals for all of the 2012 Olympic events. ¬†We attempted to find betting value by leveraging these predictions along with current Olympic lines.
The following lists contains only odds only for those that Dure projected as winners. ¬†Additionally, in order to make the list athletes/countries were required NOT to be the¬†favorite¬†at the books and have at least a 2-to-1 payout. ¬†Here are the best odds from the available Olympic lines, according to Dure:
|Mens Indoor Volleyball||Poland||450||Bovada||1st|
|Womens 800m||Mariya Savinova||400||Bovada||1st|
|Womens Single Sculls Rowing||Minka Knapkova||325||The Greek||1st|
|Mens Quadruple Sculls Rowing||Australia||300||The Greek||1st|
|Mens 400 Hurdles||David Greene||275||Bovada||1st|
|Mens Javelin||Vitezslav Vesely||225||The Greek||1st|
