The skeleton is one of the most exhilarating sports to both participate in and watch, and there will be no exception at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games – with the Women’s Skeleton looking to be one of the most watched and most gambled on sports in the entire games.
Women’s Skeleton Betting 2014 Olympics Odds
In the betting for the overall gold medal winner in the Women’s Skeleton in the 2014 Winter Olympics, there is one favorite that William Hill, Pinnacle Sports and Unibet all agree on. This is the person who is most likely to take the gold as her odds are a lot shorter than some of her competitors. The favorite is Elizabeth (or Lizzie) Yarnold, from Great Britain.
As I said all three of the major bookies have her as the favorite. William Hill have given her odds of 2.62, Pinnacle Sports have put her at 2.53 and Unibet have given her a straight 2.50. Meaning that if you agree with the bookies and think that Lizzie Yarnold will take the gold in the Women’s Skeleton, then you should place your bet with William Hill as they are offering you the best odds.
All three bookies once again agree on who should be the second favorite is. Noelle Pikus-Pace, a 31 year old from the USA is given second best odds by the bookies. She is not a huge amount behind Lizzie Yarnold in the odds so if Yarnold has a bad day then Pikus-Pace could be certainly mount a decent challenge to the Brit. Unibet are offering 3.00, Pinnacle Sports are offering 2.87 and William Hill are offering 2.75, so not a huge amount of difference between the top two – and it could probably go either way on the day. Obviously if you think Pikus-Pace will take the gold then bet with Unibetfor the most return on your wager.
The three major bookies all agree that these two are the most likely and that is why the third favorite takes a significant lengthening in odds. They all agree that Shelly Rudman will take the bronze and if something goes wrong with Yarnold and Pikus-Pace, will take the gold. But they do put her chances quite low, with William Hill offering 6.00, Pinnacle Sports offering 8.21 and Unibet offering 5.00. Unibet giving her the best chance but if you think Rudman has a chance then Pinnacle Sports is the way to bet, as they are offering by far the best return on your bet at 8.21.
After this there is the rest of the field, but none of the three main bookies are giving any women’s skeleton betting 2014 Olympics odds better than 10.00 for any of the remaining athletes, with some even going as high as 250.00 on Unibet.
