The Olymipics are looming as London 2012 is less than 45 days away. ¬†While the majority of the Olympic coverage features feel-good stories, interviews and fluff a few folks are actually looking forward to the events of the game. Infostrada Sports recently teamed up with The USA Today to put together a tool ¬†that projects Olympic medal counts. ¬†We can’t vouch for any accuracy, but the data does look to be updated regularly and is quite¬†thorough.
The tool lists the top prospects (updated every few days) and uses analytics to estimate the number of medals won, as well as the placements of each Olympian. ¬†The majority of books are offering over/under on Gold medal count, so we compared the books and the USA Today projections to find any¬†perceived¬†value:

- Great Britain – Under 21.5 gold medals (+120) -4.5 Differential
- Germany¬†- Over 15.5 gold medals (-105) +4.5 Differential
- Russia - Under 25.5 gold medals (-115) -4.5 Differential
- Australia¬†- Under 14.5 gold medals (-215) -4.5 Differential
