Knapkova 3.50 to win single sculls - The Czech looked strong but hopefully she will take a good nap at the start and prove costly while Crow needs to be at her best!Most likely these 2 will fight for the victory!

Russia +5.5 ( womens bball half time in play )

Australia is relying on 2-3 players and the rest are not contributing.

lucky win

No idea why the Russians were shooting mad low percentage three's with over 30 seconds to go though, a solid two and a foul to send the Aussies to the free throws would be enough.

win

GB would have won the game if their coaching staff asked them to play the fouling game towards the end of regulation. They had 20/20 free throws at that time, even if France scored both they would be forced into fouling them. Instead they allowed France to hit the 3 and they paid for it. Same thing happened in OT.

Golds analysis of China and US for the rest olympic events
China: (Table tennis)2+(Badminton)3or/4+(Swimming and diving)4or/5+(gymnastics)2+(others)+5=16-18
US: (Athletics)8 or/10+(bball,vball,fball)3+(Tennis)3+(Swimming)2+(gym nastics)2=18-20
So I think US could get 41/42 golds while China could have 36-38 golds.

Thoughts pls anyone??

I'm going to buying out in red@1.50

Still too far out to be buying out on any bet. Lots of unexpected gold medals to win and conversely lot of gold medals to lose as favourites.

USA were always going to dominate the pool so not that suprised with their haul there.

USA will take 16 golds in swimming adding the coming 2golds from men and women's 4X100m medley relay. That's 4 golds more than the number in Beijing. Also I think tehy'll have 2 more golds from Tennis than 4yrs ago.
The USA team didn't do well in Athletics in Beijing and this time they shall get at least more golds in Athletics,maybe even at worst. Also they gonna get more golds in gymnastics. All in all,42 golds for team USA shall be no problem.

When it comes to our team, the golds we lost/going to lose(comparing the Beijing Olympics) as follows:
Weight lifting -3
Shooting -2
Judo -3
Gymnastics -5
adding swimming +4
That's 51-13+4=42 golds
So I assume we get 42 golds maximum.

I'm buying out most of my bet considering it's a big play. If china wins,I'm in slight profit,yet it's not likely to happen I think.
Chinese team is letting me down big time. What a bunch of tools!Assholes!

Still disagree about USA>China in terms of gold medals.

USA's main source of gold is now finished in the form of swimming. In the past they could then rely on track and field during the second week to continue the rush but in the past few Olympics this has not been the case, basically because of the emergence of the Carribean Island nations in both mens and women sprints that are effectively taking away what were previously locks for USA.

For instance in the mens, Jamaica should sweep the 100m 200m and 400m sprints. In the womens Jamaica has already won the 100m and probably favourites in the 200m and 400m.

China still have plenty of avenues for gold - I'm counting at least another 10 in events like table tennis, diving and gymastics.

Like I mentioned above, USA were always going to dominate the pool and IMO the market has overreacted post the swimming program for something that was actually expected.

China most gold medals currently paying approx $3. Overs for mine

I did a quick count of every single gold medal market still to be handed out at these Olympics and as a guide I assumed that the favourite of each market will end of winning the gold.

China will top the gold medal count with about 3 gold medals in hand. I realise only an indicative measure but to me just highlights how wrong the current price is

I'm not sure how competitive is USA in Athletics.
If they can get 7 or more golds in Athletics, they are good enough to win this race.
I don't think we can get many golds in gymnastics.Maximum 2 golds from now on.
It would be a big advantage if USA could get another 2 or more golds in gymnastics.
