When it comes to betting on the Sochi Games in general, sports fans are likely going to lean toward their home and native land. Oddsmakers, on the other hand, are unmoved by such biases. As a result, despite the US sending 230 athletes to the games (the most of any country), Norway is the favorite to win the most gold medals at the games.

Norway’s +120 odds of winning the most Olympic gold medals lead America’s +250 mark, Germany’s +700, Russia’s +900, Canada’s +900 and every other country in the world.

Canada +900
Austria +4000
South Korea +4000
China +4000
France +5000
Sweden +5000
Switzerland +5000
Netherlands +10000

Betting on obscure Olympic events is much the fun of engaging with the Winter Games though, so betting lines exist for everything from the outright women’s luge winner to the probability of Jamaica’s fan favorite bobsled to win a medal (a ‘Yes’ bet currently pays +5,000).

In the means 500m speed skating you have the option of cheering on a "bum" at a tasty price for a favourite of +300 - and that's got to have some appeal.

Dmitry Lobkov +1400
Pekka Koskela +1400

Most importantly, the Olympics serve as an opportunity for casual and diehard sports fans alike to give in to the temptation of watching event after event for the duration of the two-plus-week celebration. Don’t even leave the couch if you don’t want to – we won’t judge.

There are plenty of events and the European and North American sportsbooks is ready for all of them.
