For bettors, an important indicator is the fact that the odds are given by the bookmakers for the country that will receive the majority of medals at the Olympics. It is believed that the US team is in the lead in terms of the number of gold medals in past games, but China is the undisputed leader in the total quantity of medals, so the level of competition is always very serious.
What will be the true result of sports battles, only time will tell. Fortunately, there is very little time left to wait for the start of the competition. It is much more interesting and profitable to place bets on specific sports, for example, on those in which the team of the selected country is the strongest and most successful.
How to analyze Olympiad Team Sports?
Team sport events are the least challenging for bettors, and there are a few things to explore here.
The national teams do not always bring the optimal composition to such a sport tournament, which most of all concerns football, to some extent basketball, volleyball, and handball. For this reason, take a close look at who is on the team for the Olympic Games. The initial confusion with the quality of the lineups leads to frequent line skews in the first matches.
In hockey betting, the situation is reversed: the participants in the competition try to complete the optimal squad, which should be taken into account when choosing a bet. In such a situation, the bettor needs to pay attention to the quality of the national hockey teams in the test matches.
How to analyze individual sports disciplines?
Choose in advance which sport you will bet on. It is better to use those types of which there is at least some idea, or earlier you had to bet in bookmakers in the framework of other national or international tournaments.
Before the start of the Olympics, it will not be superfluous to look at how the qualifying stages were held, where it is necessary to highlight the favorites, the manner of performance of strong athletes who can become a “dark horse” at the Olympic Games and win medals. Read the opinions of experts, their analyzes, and comments.
Once you’ve figured out the potential of all the prospective favorites, consider the quality of their preparation ahead of the Olympics themselves. In some sports, control competitions are held, revealing the current form of athletes. After that, experienced bettors carefully study the line for the competition, try to find imbalances in it, and play at unreasonably high odds.
