Men’s Figure Skating betting 2014 olympic options leave people with many options when looking at the over all field. Because Men’s figure skating tends to be a more wide open competition than women’s figure skating, it is much easier for people to bet on the skaters from their home nation rather than the people that they think will win. In fact, the betting on these events can become very interesting when prop bets are taken into account.
Some prop bets can be laid down for how many triple jumps a skater will land, how many times they will fall and/or how many jumps they land in total. These prop bets can make each skate more exciting and keep the bettor involved in each program just waiting to see if the skater that they bet on is going to come through for them. In the 2014 Sochi Olympics, there are some nice odds on the favorites in the Men’s figure skating competition.
Men’s Figure Skating Betting 2014 Olympics Favorites
At William Hill, Evgeni Pluschenko is a longshot at 16.1, but that does not mean that he is out of the running. Pluschenko has been around for so long that some people might have forgotten about him. The favorites are Yuzuru Hanyu at 5.2 and Javier Fernandez at 14.1. At Pinnacle Sports, the money line on Patrick Chan is 1.538. The difference between the two houses shows just how wide open the competition is. These two will be at the front of the field and taking most of the betting action early in the competition. However, the field could be swarmed by the likes of Pluschenko who thrives on the pressure of the Olympics and major competition.
The Men’s figure skating betting 2014 Olympics field is open to just about any winner. With the presence of an old pro like Pluschenko and the new players like Fernandez and Hanyu this Olympics could produce a surprise winner or show us a flash of brilliance once more from an old champion.
