- Norway has -650 odds to lead the Olympics in gold medals.
- Norway has led the Winter Olympics in Gold Medals in the last two events.
BEIJING – The 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics are just under two months away and there are already plenty of betting odds for the event.
There was plenty of speculation on if they were still going to go on based on the COVID-19 numbers rising. However, odds on if the Olympics will be canceled or postponed are heavily in favor of it happening when scheduled.
Legal betting sites also have odds on which country will lead in the most gold medals won.
Beijing 2022 – Odds To Win Most Gold Medals
- Norway -650
- Germany +700
- Canada +900
- Russian Olympic Committee +1100
- United States +1200
- Netherlands +8000
Norway Remains Power Hungry
Norway has established itself as a Winter Olympic powerhouse in terms of winning gold medals. They have led the Winter Olympics in gold medals in three of the last six events including the last two events.
The last time that they were unable to be the gold medal leaders was in 2010 where they missed it by five gold medals.
In terms of most medals won, Norway led in that category as well having won 39 medals with 14 of them being gold.
Olympic betting sites have been favoring Norway to lead in gold medals since the beginning as they opened up with +185 odds to do so before shifting to -200 and eventually -650.
As their odds continue to get more expensive, getting in on them sooner rather than later would be a wise move.
Lookout For Germany And Canada
For those legal sports betting longshot takers, Germany and Canada would be the countries to take risks on. Both of them have finished in the top-5 in gold medals won in every Winter Olympics since 1998.
Germany has been the gold medal leader twice since then while Canada has led once. In the 2018 Olympics, Germany tied Norway with 14 gold medals while Canada sat right behind with 11.
