The 2020-21 FIS Alpine Ski World Cup is in the finish line now with the last race weekend being held in Lenzerheide, Switzerland. The women’s slalom race is on Saturday where the race is still open between the three leading athletes. While in the men’s event Marco Schwarz has already won the world cup trophy. But he is in the favorites again to win the last race in the FIS Lenzerheide slalom odds.
This will be the sixth time that the Swiss resort of Lenzerheide will host the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup. What’s more, not a simple race but the Season Finale will be organized on the famous Silvano Beltrametti track. In the women’s slalom world cup still any of the three top skiers, Petra Vhlova, Katharina Liensberger and Mikaela Shiffrin can win the title. So their race on Saturday is promised to be one of the most exciting moments of the season. The men’s slalom race is the last event of the 2020-21 World Cup, where Marco Schwarz has already won the trophy. But surely he will aim for another victory at the end of the season just like the other top skiers of the season, Ramon Zenhausern and Clement Noel.
FIS Lenzerheide slalom odds can’t decide between the three favorites
The standing between the first three skiers is so close in the women’s slalom that online sportsbooks in Switzerland offer the same odds, 2.875 for all three of them. Petra Vhlova leads the standing at the moment, but only 22 points ahead of Katharina Liensberger. While Mikaela Shiffrin is 37 points behind. As the maximum points they can win in a race is 100, all of them still have a real chance to win the trophy. Vhlova has won the most, four races so far but she only finished in 8th place in the previous race in Are.
Where her Austrian rival managed to win ahead of Shiffrin and Wendy Holdener. Liensberger also defeated Vhlova in the World Championships in Cortina last month and she can easily do it again. The 23-year-old skier would win her first world cup title. Unlike Mikaela Shiffrin who has already got 6 in slalom. The US star has only taken part in the slalom and giant slalom races this season following her return. She got better and better each month and won four medals in the world championships. Now Shiffrin has a chance to win her next world cup title but will need two great runs to achieve it.
Can the World Cup winner finish with another victory?
As we have mentioned, in the men’s slalom race Marco Schwarz has already won the title after leading 122 points ahead of Swiss Ramon Zenhausern. Who still needs to perform well to keep his position against French Clement Noel and Norwegian Sebastian Foss-Solevag. Online gambling sites in Switzerland favor Noel to win the race on Sunday with the odds of 3.00. He won two out the previous three races and got two more podium finishes as well. His only disadvantage is his instability as Noel couldn’t finish the race on three occasions.
Local favorite Zenhausern has the odds of 7.90 in the FIS Lenzerheide slalom odds to win his second slalom race of the season. The silver medalist in the 2018 Olympics can achieve the best world cup result of his career if he can keep his second position. Marco Schwarz might not be that interested in winning the last race of the season after already winning the small globe. But with another good performance he can also get the third-place in the overall world cup, so his victory is not unlikely and has the odds of 6.95 on 22Bet.
