The Sochi Winter Olympics are close at hand, and it’s time to start picking your favorites.
Whether you’re looking at the skiing or the ice hockey, one online sportsbook in Canada has geared itself up for the event in style.
That’s right: while Europe warmed up for Sochi with the European Figure Skating Championships, the Canadians were focusing on a more aggressive offering: the Ice Hockey.
It’s not just the Canucks that are gearing up for the ice, though, as sports betting giant, Bodog, have announced their odds just in time. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Canada top the pile, with odds of 3.0, just ahead of that other giant of the sport, Russia.
There’s more than just Hockey, though
Sochi 2014 isn’t just about the hockey, though. While some teams are targeting that Hockey gold, others are looking elsewhere for their medal hopes. Indeed, Great Britain can never hope to gain a hockey medal, but a record haul is still being predicted.
Meanwhile, Canadian players at Bodog can even enjoy their range of great casino games while watching the event unfold. Thanks to pretty lax Canadian gambling laws, you can take your seat at the poker table at the same time as making a winning bet on the winner of that opening Ice Hockey match! Pick the winner of Latvia and Switzerland, and even if you lose your hand, you’ll be heading home happy!
