Player To Win Snowboarding – Women’s Half pipe
Chloe Kim +135 for 3 units.
Arielle Gold +950 for 3 units.
At the Aspen X-Games, these two got gold and silver in the superpipe event. Gold went into first place after her last run, then Kim stole the Gold with her last run. Chloe Kim has arrived. She is only 17 and I think she will get her first olympic gold in the halfpipe here. Arielle Gold had a a near flawless run that she had never landed in an event, but Kim’s back 2 back 1080s stole the gold from Gold. I think Arielle may come through based on her impressive X-Games performance, but Kim is obviously the favorite.
Odds to win Men’s Ice Hockey
Russia -110 for 2 units. I am going with the favorite here. A lot of the best players will not be playing in this event due to the NHL schedule. Russia has, arguably, the second best hockey league in the world. I think Russia should be a heavier favorite so I am going to take the value here. If they make it to the championship game and are playing a heavy underdog, I will most likely hedge on the underdog. Best of luck.
