Beijing 2022: Latest Winter Olympic Games

Beijing hosted the 2022 Winter Olympics Games from February 2nd to February 20th, 2022, in which 2,871 athletes from 91 countries competed. The multi-sport event was controversial, emotional, and full of high-adrenaline moments.

First, China’s zero-COVID policy strict adherence impacted the event in many unprecedented ways. During the games, participants – including athletes, coaching staff, and media- undertook severe sanitary protocols such as daily testing and accommodation in bio-secure bubbles to avoid contagion.

In addition, the host permitted only residents of the People’s Republic of China to attend the games as spectators. However, most of the games took place behind closed doors.

The multi-sport event featured 109 events over 15 disciplines in seven sports, including seven new events added by the International Olympic Committee. In 2018, the IOC announced the incorporation of women’s mono bob, men’s and women’s freestyle skiing Big Air events, and mixed team events in short track, ski jumping, snowboard cross, and freestyle skiing aerials in Beijing 2022.

How to Bet on Olympic Games Odds

A How-To Bet on Olympic Games Guide for Sports Betting

This means that there are plenty of betting opportunities and a huge selection to choose from. But which bets do you place? How do you choose the right betting options for each event?

A good starting point is understanding how to bet on each option, and understanding what they mean before placing your money on any event at the Olympics.

Winter Olympics Moneyline Odds

The moneyline wager is one of the easiest sports betting options you can place at the Winter Olympics. There are two outcomes available in most cases, if you’re looking at a two team match up for an event, or you may see several options if you’re looking at a particular sport with several competitors who are competing at once for the same medal.

All you have to do with a Winter Olympics moneyline is to pick the team or athlete that will win that particular event or matchup. The easiest sports to look at for the moneyline example is team sports like hockey or curling. However, many sports in the Winter Olympics are individual events and you will see far more of the moneyline odds with the lists of players and their odds of winning that event.

If you’re looking at ski jumping, speed skating or snowboarding, you will notice these types of moneyline odds that will essentially show you all the players competing in that event and their likelihood of winning. The moneyline odds would show you The more competitors in the event, the more risky the wager, so you would find some really appealing odds on these types of moneyline odds.

All you have to do is decide which player or team will win the event. That’s it!

Olympic Games Totals Betting

As we mentioned, moneyline bets will no doubt be the most used betting option during the Olympics games, but we believe that totals will creep in this year as they are growing in popularity across the board. Totals allow you to bet on an outcome that has nothing to do with the actual winner of the event. There will be plenty of over/under wagers to bet on through the Winter Olympics, and you can usually see these framed as over/under totals on points a player may score or acquire in an event.

Totals betting may only be available for select sports, but let’s focus on hockey for our example as it’s commonly used in the NHL already and it may be easier to understand than other events.

When it comes to betting on hockey at the Winter Olympics, we will have two players in a matchup and you will have to decide if the total number of goals for both teams collectively will be over or under the oddsmaker’s line. So if we set a line of 6.5, that means we expect the final score to be around that amount, whether that’s a score of 4-2, 5-1, 3-4 etc. The number will have a half point as this will prevent a push (if the line was set at 6, and the final score was 4-2, no one would win).

Your job here is to determine if you think the total score of both teams added together will be more or less than 6.5. If you choose the over, and the score is 7-1, you would win your wager. If the score was 2-1 and chose the over, you would lose.

Olympic Moneyline Odds

As we mentioned, there will be odds associated with each player and reflect how likely they are to win the match or event. These odds will also determine how much you will receive in winnings if the outcome you predict wins outright.

A helpful trick to understand moneyline odds better is to remember that a positive (+) number like +300 will show you how much you would win on a $100 wager. So if you placed a $100 bet on Team USA basketball at +300 odds, and they won, you would receive $300 in winnings plus you initial stake would be returned. This team would be considered the underdog in most situations.

If you want to bet on a favorite, let’s say France’s soccer team, to win at -120 odds, this number shows you what you need to wager to win $100. So, if you think France will win, you can bet $120 to win $100, plus you would receive your $120 back.

The same can be said about sports that have more than two outcomes, like betting on your favorite swimmer to win the 200M Butterfly event. The odds will likely be shifted as there are more competitors in the race. The same rules apply, you will determine the likelihood of that swimmer winning the race and choose the outcome you believe will occur.

You will see this same style of betting in the form of futures wagers, prop bets, and more.

For example, If Michael Phelps hadn’t retired after Rio 2016, he would be a heavy favorite to win this event in 2021, likely in the -2000 range, meaning his odds wouldn’t even be worth betting on as you would have to risk $2000 to win $100.

You may even see moneyline odds that pit two countries against each other for most gold medals – these will be located in the futures or specials section. For example, you could see odds that put The USA and China against each other for the most gold medals, and you will have to determine which country will receive more.

Olympic Point Spreads

While moneyline bets will be the most popular type of betting at the 2024  Olympics games, we urge you not to sleep on point spreads. You can find a great variety of point spreads on hockey and curling, as it gives the underdog team or athlete an imaginary head start. It really depends on the sport and how points are awarded. You might see a point spread on how many points certain players might acquire in a competition etc.

Live Betting on the Olympics and Prop Bets

Live betting is extremely popular in traditional North American sports, but live betting on the Olympics, especially sports we aren’t overly familiar with betting on, is a whole new level of fun.

The live betting options will be unique and change rapidly for each sport, you won’t find any live betting options that are across the board for all 109 events. This simply allows you to bet on live play or games, which will let you bet on ‘what will happen next at the moment instead of waiting for an outcome to occur.

Prop betting may not be as popular on Olympic sports, but these are fun wagers – they will allow you to bet on certain aspects of a game or event that have nothing to do with who stands on the podium at the end of the event. You might want to bet on whether there will be overtime in hockey, or whether someone will get a perfect score, but you can find plenty of options and value heading into the Winter Olympics.

Now that you have a grasp on how to bet on the Olympics games, head over to the sportsbook and start betting on your favorite Olympic events now!
